  • 4D Classic Inca Trail with Elvis, an Unforgettable Combination!

Review: 

Our group of 6 had the pleasure of two tours with Elvis (Roque Gota) - a great walking tour of Cusco, as well as the fabulous 4-day Inca Trail tour. Elvis communicated the history, spirit and heart of Cusco as we toured the Plaza de Armas, the Catedral Basílica de la Virgen de la Asunción, and the incredibly interesting Qurikancha museum. During our Cusco stay, prior to connecting with Elvis, we had been on some sketchy tours of the immediate area, as well as the Sacred Valley. Some of those guides told us such dubious info we were relieved to connect with Elvis, who corrected so many odd tales we had heard. Example: We had been told Inca ceremonial temples were built at the top of hills so they were closer to the sun when worshoping it. Elvis gratefully informed us it was more about being connected with all aspects of the mother earth as well (Pachamama), especially poinient from the highest of vantage points. This made way more sense, especially when onsite. Elvis' deep knowledge, respect, and love of his culture were clear yet appropriately subtle during our 4-day adventure, eventually to Machu Picchu. I thought I was traveling with 5 treasured family members, but Elvis quickly made it six. I struggled at times with the altitude, and Elvis was right there to teach me improved breathing techniques and how to best pace myself. He ensured we all not only completed the trek together, but we enjoyed it too! With such great knowledge imparted along the way. Elvis surprised us as well with his remarkable phone camera photography skills – so many treasured photos at his artistic direction! There is no doubt there is something very special spirtually about Peru. With Elvis providing the backstories and eductaion, the experience and learning about the Inca and pre-Inca times is an amazing must do adventure. Thank you Elvis, we cannot wait to return someday hopefully soon!!
