About the location

What probably comes to mind when one thinks of Peru is Machu Picchu, the Inca trail or maybe even Rainbow Mountain. But this country offers so much more then just that. The region is crawling with alpacas, llamas and friendly locals. Cusco is easily a must see during your visit to Peru, but this guide has many more towns, cities and areas to explore. We got the best of both worlds by staying in the city for five nights, and also by taking a few day trips to the countryside by to see surrounding towns. We ate some of the best authentic Peruvian food known to man, did some of the most beautiful hikes through the Andes Mountains, and found the hidden gems of the highlands!

Guide Summary

We visited Cusco hoping to see one of the seven wonders of the world - Machu Picchu and maybe do the Rainbow Mountain hike if the weather was good. Our experience there was more than we could have ever hoped for. Not only did we complete some hikes IN Machu Picchu, thanks to our local guide who is now a friend, as well as Rainbow Mountain - we also we're fortunate enough to climb to the top of Cristo Blanco and get a birds eye view of Cusco. 

We walk you through the best kept secrets of where to eat, what to do and how to snag the best deals for any souvenir you're hoping to take home with you. Don't let one of those keepsakes be fake alpaca wool! 

We give you insider tips you won't find in any travel blog online - like tipping, real pisco sours, stray dogs, how to get the best tour price, haggling, finding safe drinking water and so much more!
