Tara Tours recently returned from their eight day travel agent fam to Peru.
Hermine Taramona, Vice President, Lynn Silberman, Tour Conductor and Jodi Kalter, accounting and assistant T.C. and Lorena Albright , Sales representative escorted 12 retail travel agents from all over the United States. The nights were spent in the warm and welcoming Casa Andina Private Collection properties in Lima , the Sacred Valley and Cusco. In Aguas Calientes, Machu Picchu the hotel used was the well located and newly renovated El Mapi.
Taramona added that “I wish every travel agent in the world could have been with us to enjoy the mystical and magical trip this was. I venture to say the trip was a memory that each travel agent will hold dear for many years to come. Just to share one of the many magical moments with you. We were visiting Kenko, ruins outside Cuzco , and heard an Andean Flute player. The sound was so amazing I felt the desire to commune with the group and Pachamama, (Mother Earth). We formed a circle, we all held hands, we all closed our eyes and listened to the sound of the Peruvian music feeling the air and land on which we were standing. This was for about 5 minutes but felt like a lifetime and when we all opened our eyes we saw that some were crying. It was such an emotional moment it will be in all of our hearts forever.”
