A Lost City exists high on the lush mountain tops of Peru shrouded by mists. To reach this last citadel of the Incas is a journey worthy of any modern day Indiana Jones. From the seaside urbanity of Lima to the village nestled at the foothills of Hiram Bingham’s treasure, the path to Machu Picchu is woven with the colorful culture of the ancient Inca empire. On the way to the sacred ruins lie the mysteries of older civilizations such as the Chavin, the sorrowful stories of Spanish conquest, and the centuries old traditions of the surviving Quechua. Vibrant, traditional, and steeped in heritage, the towns and villages of Peru offer spacious landscapes and convivial locals. Join the Bespoke Traveler expedition through Lima, Cusco, Pisac, Ollantaytambo, and finally the magnificent remains of Machu Picchu in “Journey to the Lost City.”

Very nicely laid out book about Peruvian history and culture with excellent photographs. One of the things I don't like about travel books is their general lack of photos, but this book does not disappoint. There were a good number of colorful photos which really gave me a sense of what to expect when traveling to Peru. I'm going to Peru this fall and I'm definitely more enthused after reading this book. I recommend it if you are interested in Peru especially Lima, Cusco, and Machu Picchu.
Made Peru come alive
I've always wanted to go see Mach Picchu and after reading this book I'm planning a trip there! The information was to the point and just what I needed to know. A great detailed guide to what I can expect when I get there in September.
