I am looking for a bit of guidance. My wife and I are planning a trip to experience the Amazon and Machu Picchu, ( I can still be swayed if I’m not looking at the best places) We want to cruise on Aqua and have time to experience one other destination in Peru allowing us to keep our trip to 14 days total. It seems like 4 night on Aqua is about perfect plus the time to see Machu Picchu. I’d like to do a canopy tour/walk but not sure how to fit it in. So here is my questions to the group. We are pretty seasoned travelers but do not speak Spanish so I am thinking I’ll need to use a travel service for this trip. I’ve seen a few suggestions, but am going to ask the forum again for a recommendation. I’ll want to book this all in advance as I want everything secured prior to leaving the US.
Has anyone used Aqua Expeditions to “add” Machu Picchu to their trip? Opinions/comments? How about best time of year? I’m thinking early May 2013.
A bit more about me… 2 years ago I planned a trip to Costa Rico without a travel guide. We went to Casa Corcovado and then rented a car in San Jose and drove to Arenal for a few days. While driving in Costa Rico was challenging I see Peru as even more challenging and am leaning toward a trip with all transfers etc… included.. Opinions?
