{I have always wanted to see Machu Picchu and when the opportunity came, I didn’t want to pass. My friends and I did the Salkantay Trek with Odon as our main guide and he was just so passionate about telling us the history and the culture behind Machu Picchu. Odon took care of us like we were his children haha, he helped us adjust or feel better with altitude sickness.

Daily Seasonal Food on each trip and Tours

Peruvian cuisine has only recently exploded onto the international culinary stage, but Peruvians have always been crazy about their nation’s culinary heritage, and they steadfastly cling to the traditional, multiculti flavors of home. Even in the face of modern gastronomic innovation. A range of climates, from high altitude to low, offers an impressive diversity of produce. Yes, that means potatoes over 3800 kinds but also a variety of corn and other grains, to say nothing of the country’s native aji chilies that are often puréed into sauces.
