Chamber announces 2017 international trips

Chambers across the U.S. continue to offer first-hand learning opportunities about international cultures. These trips are a great way to learn about cultural differences among countries, and in some cases open doors for potential trade opportunities or business relationships.

Going into the seventh year of our international travel program, we now have repeat travelers who have established close friendships. Having traveled on two or more of our previous trips, these friends now look forward to traveling together each year on Chamber sponsored trips. This is a huge testament to the incredible value and enjoyable itineraries that these journeys offer.

This coming March we will offer a much-anticipated trip to Peru and Machu Picchu, an area that is high on many travelers’ bucket lists. Our guests will discover Peru’s dazzling highlights including Lima, Machu Picchu, the Incan wonders of Cusco and much more. With a culture and history as assorted as its countryside, Peru offers travelers unmatched adventure and moments of heightened emotion. Join us to ee the dramatic peaks and valleys of the Andes and the pre-Columbian cities that have been carved into its landscape. Guests will stroll the historic city of Cusco that seamlessly blends Spanish and Incan cultures, and will travel by train along the Urubamba River to the Sacred Valley and foothills of the Andes, and Machu Picchu. This is an amazing opportunity to explore this fascinating and ancient site for a lifetime of cherished memories to share.
