Day 0 Thursday, April 25, 2019 Travel Day (If you need a while to accommodate to the altitude or time change, you may wish to leave a day earlier. I am happy to arrange this in the same hotel if you like for an additional fee. Just let me know. This will give you time to enjoy the $10 back alley massage that Cusco has to offer too!)
