I've been to Peru twice on cruise ships sailing the Pacific Ocean off the west coast of South America. However, although I toured several cities in Peru and found the country fascinating, I never got far away from the coast. Returning to Peru, I visited Lima, Cusco, Machu Picchu, and the Sacred Valley on a land tour with Overseas Adventure Travel. It was a memorable and educational trip, and an excellent value for my travel dollars. This detailed Peru travel log provides information on the sites we visited, including Lima, the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, and Cusco.
