Thank you- Peru

I have backed from Peru after 10 day tours. So tired but I need to write to say thank you- Peru. The Machu Picchu and Sacred Valley were so great. The guide was too helpful. I really liked walking there, breathed the fresh air and view the beautiful sence.

It was great trip.

It was the most joyful day!

It is great idea and very clever to explore the Machu Picchu early morning!!!

I think I will come to Peru again with other trip and I will tell my friends to come too.

I feel as if I did a disservice to Peru for not offering my thanks to Peru and the great Peruvians I met along the way. The is a great destintation, a great culture , with such fun, friendly people.

If you are thinking of going, go! Peru is an amazing country, with beuatiful scenery, delicious cuisine, funny, friendly people, a great history, and by all indications, a great future. Viva el Peru!!!!
