Yes. We fly into Lima Saturday, August 31st. Get into Lima late. There will be 4 of us. My husband, me & my brother & sister-in-law. So glad to find someone else that is going. We will be flying from Atlanta. Where are you from? We are getting excited about the trip. Hopefully more of our group will connect with us too.

Hello
My name is Stephen, and I will be going on the Amazon Riverboat Adventure departure August 31st. I am traveling alone...could not find any of my travel companions that were interested in this trip. I don't understand why!!! because I think it is going to be great. I am from New Mexico, and will be arriving in Lima a couple of day before the trip begins. I look forward in meeting my fellow travelers.

Hi georgialady- We are also flying from ALT and arriving late on the 31st - so I am guessing we will be on the same flight.

Hi Stephen - We also have a single friend who could not find a travel companion. Sadly, she chose not to go, instead of booking as a single. Enjoy your extra days in Lima!

Looking forward to a wonderful trip!

I am sure we will be on the same flight. Wasn't much choice on flights. The joke is....that no matter where in the world you are flying to you have to go though Atlanta. Where are you coming from? I think the trip is going to be interesting & hopefully a lot of fun. We have done a lot of travelling but nothing like this. Arlene & Paul

Hi Jenn, my boots are all broken in & most of my clothes are ready. Still have to spray all our clothing with permethrin but going to wait until closer to time. We have never been to Peru but are getting excited. We fly Delta leaving Atlanta around 5:30 pm. Coming back we don't fly out of Lima until about 11pm or so & get into Atl around 7 Monday morn. Are y'all on that flight too. We will have to come up with something to do in Lima all day on Sunday to pass the time until out late flight. Arlene

Looking forward to meeting everyone on the trip!

Arlene - We are on the same return flight. I am looking forward to spending the last day exploring Lima! I already have several requests for a alpaca sweater so I am sure I there will be some shopping too.

Cheers!

Jenn, there are also several tours in Lima, 3 to 4 hours. Even doing one of them would still give us shopping time. Going to be a long day!!!
