Magical Journey Sacred Tours
For fourteen years our focus and intent has been to bring spiritually open men and women of all ages to truly experience Machu Picchu, the Andes, and the Amazon in a non-commercial way. We explore ancient sacred sites and special areas not visited by other tourists.
Your leader, Carol Cumes, assisted by Professional Quechua Guides, will guide you into the interconnected spiritual worlds of the Quechua people, and their ancient cosmology that is still practiced in the Andes today.
In all our Magical Journey programs...
- Authentic Andean healers lead our groups in the ancient rituals which they have used for centuries to connect to powerful nature deities.
- We are committed to offer participants a journey that will enable them to tap into the authentic Andean spirituality, as well as allow them plenty of time for personal spiritual growth and meditation.
- We spend maximum time in the Machu Picchu area and allow time for special meditations in sacred sites at night.
- We stay in the heart of Peru's Sacred Valley at tranquil Willka T’ika Garden Guest House, a private retreat center for the study of sacred plants.
Willka T'ika (Sacred Flower) is a retreat center in the heart of the Sacred Valley of the Inkas. Situated between Qosqo (Cusco) and Machu Picchu, this guest house offers grace and comfort enhanced by the aura of the Andes.
The guest cottages are newly-built in traditional 16th century Spanish colonial style. They are constructed from natural materials and indigenous handwork that has been used by Peruvians for thousands of years.
Willka T'ika offers full dining facilities, along with open-air or covered areas for meetings, dance, and yoga. There is a massage, or healing room and modern bathroom facilities with hot showers.
The gardens are breathtaking, lavishly filled with masses of flowers, shrubs, and flowering plants, along with Andean medicinal herbs and indigenous grains and vegetables. There are lawn areas for Tai Chi, as well as a large meditation hut and huge walk-around spiral. This garden paradise also features special sites used for traditional ceremonies, such as offerings to Pachamama, the Mother Earth. Stroll through the floral wonders or meditate under the 500-year-old Lucma tree as you absorb the energies of the mountains and rivers of Peru's Sacred Valley.
Willka T'ika is within easy reach of the primary Andean historic sites (Pisac, Moray, Ollantaytampu) an ideal base from which to tour the region.
Whatever your group interests are: archaeology, photography, mysticism, hiking, bird and plant life, yoga and meditation, cultural history or the quest for a rare experience of nature; they are bound to be more than satisfied at this magical place of beauty and peace.
Willka T'ika is available for pre-arranged groups and programs can be customized to suit the group's interests. There are single, double, and deluxe rooms with private baths for up to 26 guests.
The care and comfort of participants is taken into account. Group leaders are concerned with your well-being and offer you their full attention. Where programs include camping and horseback riding, guides, porters and horsemen are there to assist you at all times.
Each Magical Journey program is carefully planned and organized to maximize the group's time in Peru. Since we take care of everything, participants have only themselves and their personal needs to take care of. We run non-commercial groups of between 6-16 like-minded people.
Past participants from all over the world have indicated that their Magical Journey to Peru was an "Ultimate Transformational Journey." We know it is the best way to experience Peru. Many participants have returned again and again.
Whatever your special interest is: Archaeology, Yoga, Hiking, Photography, Herbalism, Shamanism, Meditation, River Rafting, Mountain Biking . . . We can customize a program for you!
