Jade Marshall from England was a volunteer for Cross-Cultural Solutions, an organization that provides volunteer programmes in Peru. Before she returns to her country, she decided to visit Cusco from April 21th to 23th, 2006. She was attended by our company CALYPSO PERÚ during her trip.
We would like to share her comments about her visit to Cusco:
«Dear Liliana and Pablo,
I hope you’re both well, here is a commentary of my trip… When arriving to Cuzco, my tour guide, he and the driver took me in a van to my hotel. We drove through Cusco; it was very beautiful and quaint – quite like England! … My hotel was very nice, I had a cup of coca tea as I checked in. On the city tour we went to Koricancha Church – it was beautiful. Next we went to the Plaza de Armas; it is beautiful with the fountain and cobbled streets. I was then taken round the Cathedral. It was very impressive inside and my tour guide was very knowledgeable about all the paintings and architecture ! … Aguas Calientes was very beautiful little town with lots and lots of markets to buy local handicrafts. At the station my tour guide, met me and two other people who would push my wheelchair. I was taken to the buses that take you up through the forest to Machu Picchu. It was a very steep and interesting journey. When we got to Machu Picchu, I wondered how we were going to manage with my wheelchair, but the two men just started carrying me up the steps. Machu Picchu is very beautiful and it didn’t seem real, I couldn’t believe I was actually there. I took lots of pictures and my tour guide was very knowledgeable, also the two people did a very good job of carrying me and my wheelchair up and down the steps…
I enjoyed the journey a lot. Thanks a lot for your attention !

Jade demonstrated that there are no limits or barriers when someone decide to do something special and who want to enjoy the exciting tourism world.
