Have you ever dreamed of visiting South America, or if you have already traveled there, would you like to make a return trip?  This amazing opportunity may be your chance to experience one of the New7Wonders of the World, Machu Picchu.

When I worked in Boston for the Chairman and CEO of a very large financial services company, before moving to Atlanta, I planned many spectacular trips for him.  A once in a lifetime tour of Peru and Machu Picchu was one of those trips and I’ve had the travel bug to visit ever since he came back talking about how memorable the experience was.

As culinary travel writers and photographers, we receive countless pitches and emails from public relations firms asking for us to write about all sorts of places, events, and topics.  As a rule, we won’t write about anything unless we can speak to a place from personal experience.  However, we’ve made an exception in this case and are really excited to share this incredible travel opportunity with our readers.  In fact, we wish we could take this trip ourselves!
