How it all began…
Foodies and lovers of the good life, we were living in Cusco and grew tired of visiting ‘recommended’ restaurants and hotels only to discover that they weren’t great and in some cases were downright awful!
So, being the kind folk that we are, we decided to put together this online travel guide to Cusco and the Sacred Valley and pack it full of all our favourite places.
Why? We love to share and we figured it would make it easier for everyone to have all the information in one easy to find location so that when you’re planning your trip to Cusco or are in Machu Picchu looking for a great coffee, a place to lay your head or the best place to buy souvenirs, all you have to do is come right here to this very site. Easy eh?
