Review for Conservation Volunteers International Program, Inc., Orinda, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I always wanted to visit Machu Picchu in Peru, and Conservation Volunteers International made the trip even better by letting me "give back" to help protect this international treasure. We were welcomed as friends by the park rangers, instead of treated simply as tourists. We stood where the Inca craftsman stood 500 years ago, helping to protect Machu Picchu by removing plants from the stone buildings, planting trees, and repairing the Inca Trail. In addition, we visited many other archaeological sites during our ten day volunteer project. (And the food was great, too). Great trip. I hope to travel with this group again.
