I have exciting news today, and I am really thrilled to announce a photo tour and adventure to Peru for June 2011.
I am going to be leading a 10 day photo trip, organized by Regent Travel & Tours, to one of the most wonderful places on earth, the journey will take us to the most iconic destinations including the historic Lima, founded in 1536 by spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro, and declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1988 due to its importance during the colonial era.
Our next stop will be Cusco, Capital of the Inca Empire, wears the title of “Archeological Capital of the Americas” with pride, since there is no other place on the entire continent where the monumental remains of a great culture are so easily accessible and in such good conditions. Also declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco.
Next we’ll visit the Sacred Valley of the Incas, fertile lands and spectacular views surrounding picturesque communities, including the opportunity to photograph children at a local elementary school, and spend some time with their teachers and families.
Then we’ll experience Machu Picchu, “The Lost City of the Incas” declared World Heritage Site by Unesco and voted of the new Seven Wonders of the World. We are not going to rush here, and we’ll have enough time to visit and take pictures without running, this is an unique opportunity as because of Machu Picchu, popularity and delicate environment, the future may cause limited access.
We’ll then head to Titicaca Lake, located on the border of Peru and Bolivia, this lake sits 12,500 ft. above sea level making it the highest commercially navigable lake in the world, it is also the largest lake in South America.We’ll have the opportunity to visit Uros Island and Taquile Island and visit indigenous groups.
The price for this 10 day tour it’s only $ 2595* and includes great hotels, private guides, entrance fees, all land and air transportation in Peru and 17 meals, I am going to be posting a detailed day by day itinerary and links to the hotels in a couple of days. so stay tuned and feel to email me with any questions.
Mystical Inca citadels, World Heritage Sites, breathtaking snowcapped mountains, and a vibrant traditional culture are only a few reasons why Peru has been a prime adventure destination, and why I selected it for this amazing photo tour. Special arrangements are being made in order to accommodate the best time and hours for us to came back with unforgettable memories and photos.
