Our friends at gay tour operator Out-Adventures have publicized several specials on their website. The trip to Machu Picchu is on sale for 10% off. The deal is only good till Monday February 28, 2011, the company owner, Robert Sharp, said he’d honor that deal until Friday March 4, 2011 if you mention you saw it here.
Robert notes that tourists have been visiting Machu Picchu for early a century:
One hundred years ago, on July 24th 1911, the American historian Hiram Bingham arrived to the ancient Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, an architectural treasure that remained hidden for over four centuries under the lush vegetation of the Urubamba canyon, until the Yale professor unveiled it to the world.
