    I just toured Machu Picchu with Oscar and what an experience!! Although it is high on my bucket list I really had not thought of it much more than an interesting, beautiful ruin. How wrong I was. He explained its history, its discovery. the symbolisms, the artifacts etc. When I get there I will look for many of the things he pointed out which I would have just glossed over. Be sure to take his tour. I wish I could do it with him in person (I did ask him!!) We had personal chats through out his presentaion.

    The tour was fantastic!  We did a private tour and everyone in our group felt like like they really got to experience the wonder of Machu Picchu.  The guide was knowledgeable and did a great job presenting.  We loved the many photos and the detail he shared!  After today, we can't wait for our next virtual tour.
