"We are so very grateful to every one of you... who organized our tour, who guided us from ruin to cathedral to Machu Picchu and onward, who took care of all our hotel and transportation arrangements, who drove us all around, who ran up and down the hill of Ollantaytambo to speak to all kind of authorities to finally get us permission to get on the military helicopter into Machu Picchu, Who knew the right people to get the OK on the helicopter, who arranged delicious meals and provided us with

"You'll also want specialist help, since the global travel firms tend to keep travelers confined to the gringo trails long worn by backpackers. Latin America is more interesting than this so whenever possible, hire an outfitter based locally. There's Marisol Mosquera in Peru who also covers Bolivia and Ecuador."

The hotel, and in particular our suite, had an incredible view of the New Years fireworks, which lit up sky the entire width of Puno, reflecting across the lake. It was really incredible. In Lima, the museum guide was very informed and passionate, but my personal favorite of all the guides was with the gentleman who gave us our Lima city tour. He was so delightful, so attentive to the kids, and so knowled
