Paul: I will be travelling to Peru this summer with my girflriend and her 10 year old son. We want to spend time in and around Machu Picchu and the Amazon Basin. My hobby is mountaineering, so I also wanted to spend some time climbing and engaging in some activities that will be beyond the physical ability of my girlfriend and her son. I was looking for someone who would be able to do the Inca trail with me in 2 days (rather than the normal 4). My girlfriend would take the train and I could meet up with her at Machu Picchu or maybe even along the trail after the 1st night. I was thinking about an itinerary that looked something like the following:
Aug 1 - Arrive early AM to Lima, Fly to Cusco in afternoon
Aug 2 -3 - Side trips around Cusco - If there is some climbing that I could do in two days, that would be great and Stephanie and her son can do some day trips from Cusco
Aug 4 - I start up the Inca trail. Stephanie and her son continue with a local day trip and then take the train towards Machu Picchu. If there is a place for me to meet them about halfway up the trail for the night, that would be great.
Aug 5 - I continue the Inca trail and Stephanie takes the train to Machu Picchu. Maybe she can take a relaxing hike somewhere along the trail. We meet up at Inkaterra for the night and stay at the hotel the nights of the 5th - either the 7th or 8th.
Aug 6 - 8 - Explore the Machu Picchu area and beyond. I would do a couple of days of more strenuous hikes and Stephanie and her son would do some easier ones. I would join them for 2 of the 4 days.
Aug 9 - Take train back to Cusco
Aug 9 - Either overnight in Cusco or leave for the Amazon Basin. We would stay at the Amazon Basin for either 4 or 5 nights. Similar to what we did at Machu Picchu, Stephanie and her son would do easier activities and for half of the time I would join them and the other half would do more strenuous activities.
Aug 13 or 14 thru the 15th (flight departs Lima at midnight) - Open for other activities, like touring Lima, Lake Titicaca, Puno, Colca Canyon, Arequipa, etc. It would be great to do some rafting, but it would have to be relatively mild.
I am completely open for other ideas and if there is a way to get a nice 6,000 meter peak in for m, it would be great. Please let me know your thoughts. All my best, Paul
Felicia: You were highly recommended by our friend, who gave me your contact. I am traveling to Peru, arriving July 19 through August 8. I am delivering to the Universidad Catholica an archive of my Mother's work in archaeology in Peru in 1935 and then with Dr. Julio Tello in 1937. Two of my grandchildren, both teenagers will be with me on this trip. We would like to explore the Andean region, including of course Machu Picchu, some of the Sacred Valley, and some of the flora, fauna, and wildlife of the jungle prior to returning to Lima about August 1, to meet with Professor Marco Curatola Petrocchi, Profesor Principal de Historia at the PUCP. I am wondering if you might be able to guide us to some of the wonderful Andean sites, perhaps even including a ride through a little of the Sacred Valley on horses, which I understand can be arranged--one day or 1/2 day would be fine. We all are experienced riders. I am trying to retrace some of my Mother's travels in Peru, and also give the grandchildren a real inspiration. We would take the train to Machu Picchu from Cuzco, because at nearly 72 I am not up to hiking the Inca trail..The three of us are able to stay in one room together overnight with no problem, hoping for a private bathroom! The grandchildren, a boy 15, and a girl 17, both go to private school here in California, and know some Spanish. Mine is pretty minimal.I so hope you might be able to be our guide for this wonderful and educational experience. Please tell me if these dates might work out for you, and what you might suggest. It would be all right if you have a few other guests on your tour. Thank you so much.
nilabh: Greetings, guide!
We are starting to plan a short trip (4-5 days) to Peru with my family (2 adults and 2 teenage daughters) in early August (probably from Aug. 5 to 10). We like to see different geographic (natural) sites and archaelogical sites. We hardly ever travel, so the trip would be super special for us (1st time in South America). We don't know the place or language and would love to sample Peru (as much as you as a guide would recommend)/ native Peruvian living.
I would like to know if you are available to guide just our family and if so, what would your rates be? Do you rent/ bring your own car/4x4? Alternatively, I was thinking about renting a car along with a driver but would prefer a personal guide (if rates, availability, interests match). I was thinking of seeing Sacred Valley/ Manchu Pichu, Nazca line (only if time permits), canyons/ sand dunes along the western coast and a short trip to rain forests/ river boats.
We are basically, city dwellers (not adventure travelers) who like occasional hiking/ skiing/ canoeing, so we won't be looking for any physically challenging/ day long strenuous trips. If you become available, then, I would like to start some planning work (flights/ dates/ hotel / car booking)using your recommendations (unless you can do that as well).
I look forward to your reply.
Clive: My wife and I are looking for a quotation for you to guide, organise cars, arrange good accommodation, and train over the following days:
14th: Collected from the airport and transfer to the Sacred Valley and tour. We would then take a 7pm train to Aguas Calientes and stay overnight here?
15th: Sunrise Tour of Machu Picchu and return to Cuzco for overnight. Would this Sunrise Tour be with a guide (and he/she would get us out of bed in time for sunrise??. The bus trip from Aguas is 20 minutes?
16th: Cuzco City Tour and return to airport.
We arrive in Cuzco from Lima on the 14th at 9.50am and depart Cuzco to Lima at 3.30 p.m. on 16 July. I believe this should give us enough time to visit the sacred valley, visit Machu Picchu and tour Cuzco.
Could you please indicate the costs associated with this with a preliminary itinerary (car, pickup, guides, accommodation (one night Cuzco, one night Aguas; train to Aguas and anything else I may have forgotten please. Unless you are not available at tha time?
