Mother, Daughter Trip of a Lifetime to Machu Picchu in Peru

     This was a mother daughter, once in a lifetime, bucket list type of trip.  We had always wanted to see Machu Picchu and when we found the trip that included getting there on horseback, that just seemed like the ultimate experience. Our expectations were high because the brochure made the trip sound extraordinary.  Well, the brochure just didn't do it justice. It was without question the best trip I have ever taken.  

     It started with the services of Largay Travel that made booking and getting questions answered easy as could be.  Both Amanda and Vivian were fabulous to work with.  We did not have one single snafu with flights, bags, or hotels.  Now that NEVER happens but it did.  Once we were picked up by Mountain Lodges of Peru, it was indescribable.  They have it down to a science.  Everything worked like clockwork, we felt completely safe at all times, we were catered to on every level.  

     The mountains were spectacular, the placement of the lodges was perfect, unique, remote, blending completely with the surrounding countryside and the lodges themselves were clean and modern, the people were so friendly and helpful at all times, the horses were Quarter Horses and without exception, EVERYONE loved their horse.  They were calm, experienced, conditioned, and very willing.  Our guide was the icing on the cake.  He was knowledgeable, happy and fun to be around, caring and made sure everyone was safe and had what they needed.  His name is Guido and if you take this ride, request him.  He’s the best.  

We spent 13 days in Peru and it wasn't enough.  There is so much more that we did not get a chance to see.  Maybe we will make it back again someday.   PERFECT PERFECT TRIP!
