My husband and I were invited to a wedding in Ecuador. We decided to travel to South America early with the express intention of visiting Machu Picchu. The Ecuadorean bride suggested that we book our trip through Andean Discovery. We were treated royally from beginning to end by our guide Lucho. I suffered mild altitude sickness and Lucho fixed me up with the necessary meds at no extra cost! We also opted to extend our Machu Picchu day by climbing Wayna Picchu. I felt a little daunted at the prospect but, under Lucho’s patient tutelage, was successful.
