Grab your pens and notebooks and travel to the VB Central Library, 4100 VB Blvd, VB, for a Peru Travel Forum that offers first-hand commentary & answers to your questions about the mysterious ruins of Machu Picchu & how you can experience them yourself.
Adios Adventure Travel has extended its community reach for the coming travel year with the Peru Travel Forum: a free public gathering to give you up-to-date information about the enigmatic Inca ruins of Machu Picchu. This forum will illuminate the facts and bust the myths.
Is your dream to visit the Machu Picchu ruins? Jacquie Whitt, local teacher, world traveler and Adios Adventure Travel co-founder, has visited the ruins numerous times, traveling by foot and by train. What have you heard or read about them? Find out how to get there and what you need to know about where to stay. Can you rent a car and drive to the ruins? Do you have to walk? Can you book a hotel at the ruins? Can you explore the ruins at night?
What are the 10 biggest Machu Picchu myths? Adios Adventure Travel guides have led more than 5500 people to the ruins. Our guides spend countless hours talking and interacting with travelers. They know the most common questions and Jacquie wants to hear yours. The guides put together their top 10 list of myths based on what travelers tell them. One by one, Jacquie will break down the stories and give you the facts.
Why & when were the ruins built? How big are they? How high are they? Why are they “mysterious” and how were they revealed to the world? How long does it take to get there? Will you get altitude sickness? Who are the Incas? Should you hike the Inca Trail or take the train? What guide books are the best?
Rachel Perry of California, recently returned from an Adios-guided Peru trip.
“I just wanted to take a moment and sincerely thank you for the trip of a lifetime,” Perry wrote upon return. “I could not have asked for more! The guides were fantastic . . . the sites unbelievable . . . the whole thing was magical.”
Misty Smith of Virginia Beach,Virginia, has participated in 3 Adios-guided tours and plans to bring her son to the Amazon jungle trip in June, 2012.
“Is there a more meaningful way to travel?” Smith asks. “The Inca Trail hike was incredible. The highlight was crossing the Sungate to have my breath taken away by the distant view of Machu Picchu!”
“Traveling to Machu Picchu is not the same as going to Paris to see the Eiffel Tower or to England to explore Stonehenge,” Whitt said. “It is not easy to get to the Machu Picchu ruins. But knowledge is a tool that can help every traveler. There is information here that will assist anyone who wants to plan a trip of a lifetime.”
Come ask your questions, discuss the myths and collect valuable information to plan your dream trip or enhance your knowledge and understanding of the Inca culture. Meet other local globetrotters who have been there. Independent travelers and those looking for group travel opportunities will benefit; determine what style best suits you.
