Hailing all the way from their home in Wisconsin, Monica and Patrick traveled to South America last month for a high altitude adventure to Machu Picchu. The couple said that they has the best time and thanked their travel advisor, Kelly C., for helping them put together the trip of a lifetime.

Taking on the Inca Trail

“Hi Kelly,

We had the best time! Everything went smoothly, all the reps were friendly, and each day got better. We had fantastic private tours that went at a pace that worked for us and got to know the guides.

The hotels were perfect – clean and comfortable, very friendly staff, and in great locations within walking distance to restaurants and plazas. We felt safe everywhere, had great food and got good advice from the local guides. The weather cooperated and afternoon showers were all we had to contend with. We had rain one night on the trail, but the hiking weather was perfect.

We were in wonderful hands with Wayki Trek on the Inca Trail. The food was good and the accommodations were beyond what we expected. We felt spoiled! We also had a great time with our guide and porters. Alfredo, our guide, knew when we could use a break, or needed some encouragement and had a good read on what we would be interested in. He treated the porters with respect and worked hard to make sure we were comfortable and having fun too.

I felt very comfortable throughout the entire trip. Everything was well organized and the people were helpful and really seemed to be enjoying their jobs. From greeters to cab drivers who were scheduled to transport us, everyone was on time. Your recommendations and answers were spot on and we’re already looking to plan our next trip in 2015. Also, the seats you got us on the Vistadome train to Machu Picchu were the best available!

It was the trip of a lifetime and I think we were lucky to be in good hands with local experience!

Thanks for all your help!

Monica R.”
