Advice from people who have been there

Machu Picchu

Lidia R.By: Lidia R.

“The best of Peru“

“Peru is a wonderful country, I was able to visit many of its tourist places, Puno, Arequipa, Lima. But Machu Picchu is simply beautiful and impressive. I was able to climb one of its mountains, the experience was the best. Of course, you must enter as early as possible to not miss anything of this fantastic place.“
