5 Gold Stars for Active Adventures & Elder!

“The answer to all the questions I get about my time in Peru: it was a cultural immersion, which is precisely what I wanted. All I knew about the country was Machu Picchu, the Peruvian textiles, and Lake Titicaca. Being a 'foodie' I was bowled over by the wonderful food I experienced - especially what our porters created after they set up our camp sites. Our leader, Elder, combined in depth knowledge with careful attention to each person (and we were a challenging group! 2 drop outs due to a biking accident, 3 drop outs due to altitude sickness & I ended up on my magnificent mount - a mule, due to altitude sickness) and a wonderful sense of humor. The man is made of pure energy. We couldn't stop marveling at his ability to be up beat at all times, no matter what the fates threw at him. I am so happy I took the Lares Trail instead of the Classic Trail - hiking through the mountains with no one but ourselves and the local people, mixed with alpacas & sheep.”
