Ruinas Travel didn’t miss a single detail during this adventure through Peru. Romulo was attentive and made sure we were happy and comfortable. You could tell he wanted our trip to Peru filled with memories that would last a lifetime. We ate at delicious upscale restaurants, and we visited some amazing historical landmarks. The cost for five days was reasonable. Accommodations, breakfast, daily site-seeing with a tour guide, transportation, and lunches are all provided.
Our Bus Driver was amazing. He was right there waiting for us at the airport in Cusco. He was quick to assist with getting our luggage loaded into the bus. One thing I noticed, the streets are narrow in Cusco. In preparation for the Inti Raymi festivities streets, street detours were everywhere. I do have to say the bus driver made us feel safe in some tight spots.
Our tour guide, Edwin, was beyond amazing. He was so knowledgeable with degrees in Anthropology and Archeology. He has spent 20+ years working with archaeologists discovering many historical sites in Peru.
I was in sheer awe as he shared with us his unbelievable adventures and experiences as a guide for the Dali Lama. There is such a rich history in the Incan culture. He described this history period in vivid detail. He made Cusco and its people come alive with his stories about their culture.
Edwin also kept us ahead of the crowds. Timing was crucial during Inti Raymi festivities when over 500,000 people converged upon Plaza de Armas to celebrate.
We stayed at Hotel Ruinas during our visit to Cusco. This boutique hotel is set on a cobblestone street. As you enter the atrium lobby it’s bright with ornate wood balconies.
Hotel staff welcomed us with a cup of hot coca tea to continue the acclimation process. I did have a little bit of a headache from the lack of oxygen. A nap was definitely in order!
We had an upgraded suite with two bedrooms. Each room had their own flat-screen TV. The room was warmly decorated and offered free Wi-Fi. The beds were comfortable and clean. Sleep came easy after a long day of exploring this amazing city with a deep cultural heritage. A safe and mini refrigerator were also available and came in real handy. The bathrooms were small but had marble with nice finishings. Nothing extravagant, but it sure was nice to have a hot shower!
