We learnt a huge amount of Spanish in the time we were there. Miguel and his family were really welcoming. The food was also great -- they made us all kinds of peruvian specialities (lomos saltado, papas rellonas, chicha morado), and took us out to a couple of their favorite restaurants.
The Inca Trail was incredible! We really enjoyed the hiking, the incredible scenery and the sites. The guides were friendly, and seemed very knowledgable about the inca sites, and we chatted to them in Spanish when possible.

The Cusco Spanish school was great. The Spanish language teachers there are really welcoming, patient and had a keen interest in my pushing forward in learning Spanish. Thank you again for your assistance, the entire experience was wonderful.

Thank you! We had an absolutely wonderful trip, thank you so much for organizing it! We really felt like it couldn't have been much better -- and you really did an amazing job of making that happen. The language school: It was great. We got to do loads of conversation and really learned a lot in the time. Yessica is a sweetie. She took good care of us, and was a lot of fun to talk to. She made sure to take us to the places we needed to find -- like the salsa school and the meeting with Jesus about the Inca Trail trek. The school is very small and cosy. The other teacher, Genara was a very good teacher -- she explained lots of concepts clearly. We learnt a huge amount in the time we were there. The home stay: Miguel and his family were really welcoming. The room was actually a whole apartment on the top floor of their house -- bedroom, bath and living room/kitchen with cool views over the city and plenty of space for the two of us. We spoke Spanish with them almost exclusively. Miguel is an English language teacher so could switch over to help us out if we were too confused, but also wanted to help us learn. The food was also great -- they made us all kinds of Peruvian specialities (lomo saltado, papas rellonas, chicha morada), and took us out to a couple of their favourite restaurants and on a trip they took out to the neighbouring town of Pisac. The Inca Trail: It was incredible! We felt good the whole trip, and were lucky not to struggle with the altitude. We really enjoyed the hiking, the incredible scenery and the sites. The guides were friendly, and seemed very knowledgeable about the Inca sites, and we chatted to them in Spanish when possible. The group was - 12 - and we enjoyed meeting them too. Thanks for the warning to bring an extra thermarest to sleep on - that was great advice. The equipment and food was otherwise all great.
