A lot of planning is required. The very nature of Peru’s vast geography, history and culture offers an unparalleled variety of options, as well as challenges. Getting from point A to point B can sometimes be an adventure. But you’ll see, when done right, the journey is the reward.
We encourage a varied pace for your itinerary. It’s always important to include time for rest between those photography tours in the Amazon rain forest and that cultural festival on Lake Titicaca. You absolutely want to be acclimatized before exerting yourself in the highlands. After all, the ancient Inca city of Cusco is two miles above sea level. Taking breaks to relax and explore a little on your own at a leisurely pace can make all the difference for when you embark on that culminating tour of Machu Picchu.
This 14-day package will impress you with the richness of Peru’s culture and history at every turn! You will get private tours of Peru’s greatest treasures, including Lima’s colonial district, the mysterious petroglyphs at Nazca, the stunning flora and fauna of the Colca Canyon, the floating straw islands on Lake Titicaca, and the breathtaking ruins of Machu Picchu. (Also available with tours in shared service.)
This 15-day tour showcases the immense diversity of terrains and ecosystems that Peru offers without neglecting its historical wonders. It begins in cosmopolitan Lima, overlooking the Pacific Ocean, before moving south to the verdant Colca Canyon, where you’re likely to see plenty of Peru’s native wildlife. From there, you’ll venture south to Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world, where you’ll see the enchanting floating islands. Heading back north, you’ll go to Cusco, once the seat of the Incan Empire, and visit the nearby Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu. Your last stop will be Tambopata, nestled in the Amazon Rainforest, a bastion of biodiversity.
Lima is a photographer’s dream. The city boasts ocean and desert, islands and mountains, palm trees and cacti. The buildings showcase a rich array of architectural styles, ranging from the pre-Incan burial grounds to intricate colonial churches and imposing Republican-style government buildings. Tailored to your particular interests and experience, this package offers you the opportunity to see Lima through a lens – not just your own, but also that of the expert professional photographer who will be your guide.
With proximity to several distinct ecosystems and the culinary influences of a handful of disparate cultures, Peru has one of the best cuisines in the world. Over the course of this 10-day tour, you will become very well acquainted with Peruvian cuisine – not just by eating it, but also by cooking it, buying it, discussing it, and learning about it. And with all of that, you’ll still have time to take in the music, dance, folklore, and history of Peru, including a visit to Machu Picchu.
In this 11-day tour, you will see what one might call “Peru’s Greatest Hits” – the bustling metropolis of Lima and all the history and culture it contains, the expansive Lake Titicaca and the floating straw islands on its surface, and the pristine Incan city of Machu Picchu, which you’ll reach at the end of a four-day trek through the majestic Andes. It’s the perfect concoction of vivid culture, fascinating history, and staggering natural beauty to leave you in awe.
For the lover of history and archaeology, this tour is too good to be true. Over 11 days, you will learn all about the sophisticated civilizations that populated northern Peru before the advent of the Incan Empire, and see some of their jaw-dropping achievements. In between visits to archaeological sites, you will experience firsthand the brilliance of Peru’s “norteña” culture and its distinct music, food, and dance.
The Moche civilization inhabited northern Peru more than 1,500 years ago before its collapse. However, thanks to the survival of their outstanding (and sometimes highly sexual) pottery, a considerable amount is known today about their culture, society, and eventual decline. In this four-day archaeological tour, you will learn all about this enigmatic society that has mesmerized archaeologists and historians for centuries.
For the luxurious traveler, we offer a package that will show you Peru’s wonders in style. Stay in one of Cusco’s finest hotels, travel to Machu Picchu aboard the opulent Hiram Bingham train to Machu Picchu, and see it all alongside a private tour guide.
This trek is perfect for the adventure-seeker. Under the watch of Ausangate, a snowy peak considered a deity by the Incans, you will hike for four days through the glorious Andes Mountains near Cusco. At the end, you’ll arrive at Rainbow Mountain, an optical feast of green, red, and gold streaking dramatically down the mountainside.
