Moon Cusco & Machu Picchu (Moon Handbooks) by Ross Wehner,Renée del Gaudio



Former Peru residents Ross Wehner and Renée Del Gaudio offer an insider's view of Peru, from exploring the churches and artisan neighborhoods of Cusco to avoiding. I felt that Ross and Renee's personal perspective on many things gave the book a most enjoyable flavor that I just didn't get from the Rough Guide. For example, one of the highlights of our trip turned out to be a stay in the village of Llachon on Lake Titicaca, a place that Ross and Renee had experienced and described in rather personal terms, but also a place which wasn't mentioned in the Rough Guide. She had the Lonely Planet, and I carried Moon. While both guides were useful, more often than not, we found the Moon Handbook to be more valuable. It definitely had more detail on lodging and restaurants than the LP.

This is an exceptionally good guide for those who are looking for practical, detailed information on Machu Pichu, Cusco, and the Sacred Valley. Especially appreciated by me was the argument made for beginning, rather than ending, one's visit to the Cusco and Machu Pichu area with a stay in El Valle Sagrado, the Sacred Valley. Frankly, before reading the Moon guide, I had never heard of the Sacred Valley, a destination usually left to the last on the itineraries for most trips to Cusco and Machu Pichu. I am now persuaded, not only to spend at least two days there, but put it at the top of the itinerary. I strongly recommend this Moon guide.

The Moon Handbook for Cusco & Machu Picchu was a great resource for planning our life "bucket list" trip. The organization of the book made it easy to find the information we needed, and the many checklists made it easy to prepare everything, from the recommended immunizations and altitude concerns to the contents of our first aid kit.
Because of this guide, we got great deals, and we learned about the history, culture, flora and fauna of the area. This made our time in the towns (Lima and Cusco) and on the Inca Trail (5 day trek/pilgrimage) truly an experience we will never forget.
I'll buy a Moon guide for our next trip, too!

This was an excellent guide book, but I need to emphasize that it is geared towards gnarley-dude twenty-somethings and/or sixty year olds who run Triathlons. So bear that in mind when they suggest a leisurely hike up Waynu Pichu to cap off your day. Also, it may be that my copy was out of date, but there was some mis-information that really lead us astray. For one thing, plastic water bottles ARE permitted inside the gates at Macchu Pichu ( judging by the number of people who were indiscriminately sipping from them). Food, however, does still remain off limits, unless consumed outside the gates. (I saw many people snacking up by the Caretaker's Hut, and we even our lunch up there on one of the terraces.)

Could be more detailed. There are many more things to do in that area

This book is a helpful preview for an upcoming trip. We have an idea of what to expect when we get there.
This book has some useful information, but it lacks quite a bit of important and relevant info. regarding your trip! Machu Picchu ticket information is incredibly lacking, and I was lucky to make it up to Machu Picchu, despite this book! (Americans are apt to ticket troubles, which is not well explained or circumvented through advice in this book.) Also, only expensive restaurants are given good reviews, though I ate at several in this book they were not the best in the location. I would recommend using Trip Advisor instead, and perhaps another travel guide if you plan a trip to this location.
