    I would have loved to have more time to explore the sacred valley

    Take care with the tours always ask for prices in different locations.

    Clothes for everything you will find every kind of climate in peru

  • Transportation Tips?

    The busses are cheap so you can move easily

  • Any surprises?

    I was surprised by the huge ammount of old ruins you literally only have to get a walk trough the citys or the villages you will always find some.

  • Booking details?

    There are chains like the Dragonfly hostels who exist in more places in Peru and you often get a better price when you were in 2 of them but in different locations.
