The group visited Cuzco, Lake Titicaca, Machu Picchu and other popular Peruvian cities and attractions. "The trip was amazing. The local tour guides gave us insight into each of the towns we visited. There were so many special moments. Some of the ones that stand out include a Mother's Day dinner with a local family, hiking to the Sun Gate at Machu Picchu and visiting Lake Titicaca, where we spent the afternoon learning from locals about how they built their island home." — TRICIA ESSENPREIS, DIRECTOR, BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT TRIP: Treasures of Peru TOUR OPERATOR: Odysseys Unlimited DATE: May 2016 university of colorado alumni association BOULDER, COLORADO What started as a family trip for the president of the Blackstone Valley Chamber of Commerce developed into a tour offered to the chamber members. By the end, the chamber took 26 people on a 10-day tour of Italy's highlights, among them Rome, Tuscany, Pisa, Verona, Florence and Venice. "The trip was wonderful, more than what we ever hoped. The cit- ies were historic, side trips lovely and food out of this world. We did so much, but it was not overwhelming. Everywhere we went was a picture postcard. The locals could not have been nicer or more accommodating to us all. We met people from the commu- nity we had never met before and made long-lasting friendships. It truly was the trip of a lifetime." — JEANNIE HEBERT, PRESIDENT AND CEO TRIP: Italian Sampler Tour TOUR OPERATOR: Globus DATE: July 2016 blackstone valley chamber of commerce WHITINSVILLE, MASSACHUSETTS
