” Hi, Bill and Nic. My name is John Doe. I am heading to Peru in October with my three buddies. We are all students and are taking a trip to celebrate our upcoming graduation. We arrive in Cusco October 11th and would like to do some kind of adventure and of course we would like to see Machu Picchu. We were hoping to stay one night in a hostel just for the fun of it, but besides that we will use our hotel points to stay in the Hilton. We generally don’t use travel agents and would like to have free time to explore as well. I heard about some hike above Machu Picchu that sounds cool. Thanks for all your help!”
