Welcome to another post of helping a reader travel! As I’ve mentioned before, I have not been to every destination (unfortunately), but do get questions from friends and other blog readers on all sort of travel destination questions. Thus far, we’ve been able to help other readers travel to Maui, The Greek Islands, The Pacific Coast Highway, Argentina, Costa Rica, Cape Code & The Islands, Iceland, Geneva, Canadian Rockies, Rome, and Israel.
So this weeks travel destination includes Peru I received the following email from reader David:
“Hi Mrs. Deals! My friend and I are planning to meet up for our annual trip together. We are looking to go to Peru for a week long trip. We were thinking this Fall, either end of September or early October, knowing that pushing it any later might cause us trouble with the rainy season. Or would you recommend we hold off till next Summer? We definitely want to go to Machu Picchu. How many days do we need and what are the other “must-do’s”? Any hotel recommendations as well? Thanks for the help.”
After posting this, I received an email from a reader who is also going to Peru and has a question regarding tickets to the ruins. Reader Larry asks:
“As you may be aware you need tickets to enter the ruins, but the website that allows you to make reservations and purchase the tickets no longer accepts VISA credit cards from foreigners (and does not allow Mastercard, Amex, etc.). Do you know anyway to get these tickets before arriving in Peru? I am hoping to do the combination of Machupicchu and Huaynapicchu, but as of last night only 190 tickets were still available, if this drags out longer I will miss that opportunity. Thank you for any assistance you can offer.”
This sounds like a great trip! If you’ve been to Peru, let’s help out reader David and Larry by commenting below. Also, if you have any upcoming travel where you need some help, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to be a featured “Help a Reader Travel” Monday special. Thanks!
