Voice of Travelers to Peru
Onward ticket with ten days in Peru
I traveled on an onward ticket from Washington D.C. through Peru to Chile. I purchased the ticket with Delta Airlines. This ticket was expensive, but I had always dreamed of seeing Peru, so I bought this rather expensive ticket instead of a regular direct ticket to Chile. Delta Airlines offered great service and lunch was included in the price of the airfare ticket as well. I fell in love with Peru from the moment I disembarked the plane in Lima. I spent most of my ten days in Peru exploring the Incan ruins in Machu Picchu. With a direct ticket to Chile, I would have never been able to do so. I also fell in love with the people of Peru. I am so glad that I didn't buy a direct ticket to Chile because with such ticket I would have never discovered Peru.
Cheap ticket to Peru and back
I found a very good return ticket deal to Peru with hotel and transportation included. Not knowing much about Peru, I decided to give it a try and I purchased the ticket through a local airfare ticket agency. My journey started in Miami on a direct flight to Peru. Once in Peru, I decided to spend some time in Cusco, so I bought another flight ticket with Viva Air Peru and flew to Cusco. This flight ticket was very cheap. Then, I bought a bus ticket to get to the archeological site of Machu Picchu. The Incan ruins were splendid. I can only recommend Peru.
