The true price for 12 day holiday in Peru

Post  clozaril on Fri Feb 17, 2012 12:13 pm

i just returned from Peru 3 weeks ago.

In 2010 i went to Peru and Bolivia spending 6 months there and visited all the sites on Ickes itinerary on numerous occasion plus many other sites.

6 months didnt even cost the $7000 hes quoting for a 12 day trip.

i could do that trip on £250 excluding machu pichu. including machu pichu £400 -£420

all of these are 12 day tour packages roughly the same itinerary as Ickes
http://www.intenseperu.com/peru-vacations-peru-travel-deals-machu-picchu-machu-picchu-peru.php US$ 1,030
http://www.machupicchu-trips.com/peru-packages-images-of-peru-12-days.php Price US$ 1,480
http://www.idealsouthamerica.com/Tour/12-days-peru-program US$ 1,895

http://www.rainbowtours.co.uk/tours/peru/wonders-of-peru-escorted-tour/ £2,195 Including international flights from UK !!!
http://www.audleytravel.com/Destinations/South-America/Peru/Itinerary-Ideas/Incas-Uncovered-with-Inca-Trail.aspx £2,505pp Including international flights from UK !!!

looks to me he's getting more out of it than a free holiday and i guess the $4-5k extra that people are paying is to be close to the super tennant's swilling guru

Some people are just waiting to be ripped off in the name of 'enlightenment'. What happens when they get there? Icke will show them the hill that spoke to him when he was high, they will drink some potion and then just see what happens.

Personally I think these cash grabs will become more common as he grows bolder, knowing that his followers will stump up all sorts of cash as long as he keeps a hook in them.

Kapitalism's Finest Hour....



Karl Marx on Capitalism, Marxism Capitalism
Marx Critique Of Capitalism


Marx applied his theory of history to the society and economy of his time in order to discover the laws of motion of capitalism and to identify contradictions between the forces and relations of production.
He was concerned with long-run trends in the economy; when he examined the present, it was always in the context of the present as history.
In his analysis of capitalism, he formulated certain principles that have become known as Marxian laws and are treated with much the same reverence by some Marxists as the laws of supply and demand are by some orthodox economists.
The Marxian laws of capitalism include the following: a reserve army of the unemployed, a falling rate of profit, business crises, increasing concentration of industry into fewer firms, and increasing misery within the proletariat.

This Is The Cheapest I've Found...


The Inca Trail
7 days | Trip Code: SPIT (2012)
Countries Visited
Inca Trail Machu Picchu Peru


£385GBP

http://gap.statravel.co.uk/trips/the-inca-trail/SPIT/2012/

UK £385 = US $606.11

That's More Than 10X's Cheaper...

All These Tours Follow The Same Route, Anyway.

And The Place Is Crawling With People

Queues And Crowds Everywhere...!!!

to be fair that trip is only for a bus ride from cusco to ollantay stopping at pisac on the way before a 4 day hike from ollantaytambo to machu pichu.

i could do Ickes full itinerary including for £385 though, i'll dig out my journals later and have a look through.

the main expense is machu pichu which is costing around $200 (entry ticket + bus and train) although you could sneak into machu pichu but to travel from ollantaytambo to agua calientes is £7-10 thats if you are really adventurous ! this involves walking over train bridges and going over a steep valley on a crazy pulley bridge.
