Elizabeth L., History

Elizabeth’s visit to Peru wasn’t her first. She had organized a trip to the country before on her own, but now had decided she wanted her hands off the reins. This time, we were able to coordinate a Peru tour that combined history, nature, and that was tailored to her students advanced studies and expectations. We even organized an activity with a local university to help her students get the most out of their experience.
