“An unforgettable experience“

“In the summer holidays and thanks to a student exchange I was able to know Peru, it is incredible. But to know Machu Picchu was the most important thing to me, I was surprised its natural beauty and the Inca's perfect constructions, it is indeed a wonder. And the best thing of all is that the income came out with discount, which more to ask for.“
