A fantastic start to our vacation...

Our trip began at Lima and Cesar planned the perfect route to Arequipa, Cusco, and finally, Paracas. We love, love, love Lima! It's an absolutely beautiful city; delicious food, and the environment is clean and safe. You must visit Lima if you're going to Peru.

What made this trip so memorable...

From Arequipa to Cusco, we actually booked the Belmond Andean Explorer Train, where we slept for two nights in the train's cabin! It was a magical experience for our family. The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu was, of course, a fantastic experience. Our expert guide helped us navigate the hike and we were rewarded with many spectacular views.

Our travel dreams delivered...

At the coast of Paracas, we took a boat tour to the Ballestas Islands. We saw sea lions, seals, and all kinds of birds! Thank you, Anywhere, for making our vacation perfect! Special thanks to Caesar for being omnipresent! Great job! We love your country and hope to be back soon!
