Cattleya, Treehouse Lodge and Inca Trail Tour
I have to say this was one of the most amazing trips ever. We had those couple of airline glitches but even those were rectified and everything went well.
All we have is positive comments. From the land excursions in the Sacred Valley before the Inca trail all the way to the end. One of the most amazing days that I am so glad we did was the horseback riding. We couldn’t have imagined how much fun and rewarding the experience was. Our guide, Louis and the horse trainer were really great. The trail was fun and to see so much of the countryside in a day was just the best.
The Inca trail was too cool. I couldn’t have had a better birthday. The guides even arranged a birthday cake for me in the mountains. It was so unexpected and the most amazing thing. We did have a couple of rainy days but they did not overshadow the beauty of the experience. Hiking into Machu Picchu was beautiful. The weather that day was super cooperative. Our guide, Marco, did such an amazing job. Great history and his love for the trail and the orchids was a great match for us. He was the perfect paparazzi taking so many memorial pictures of Gary and I.
The day in Iquitos was a bit shortened by the airline issue. We wish we had had more time there but the time we had was really fun. Our riverboat experience was unbelievable. It turned out that we were the only guests on the Cattleya Amazon cruise. They were amazing to us. The excursions were great but the highlight was the chef. We had such amazing food and it was prepared just for us. Couldn’t have been happier.
The Treehouse Lodge was equally fun and interesting. You were right about the privacy of the room. It was really cool to be so high and away from everyone else. The excursions were also fun and we saw so much wildlife and adventure.
Finally, Lima was a place to relax and be pampered. The JW Marriott hotel was one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. They had amazing service and very talented bar staff—we were ready for drinks by now! Our half day excursion was just right as we were ready for some down time. We truly enjoyed this unique city.
All in all, this was the most amazing trip of our lives. I really cannot thank you for your help and guidance. This experience makes us start to consider further travel and when the time comes we will certainly remember your service.
Thanks for making my birthday more amazing than any other I have experienced.
