Peru

Overview of Peru

Peru is a mystical land rich in history, tradition and natural beauty. Visit the “City of Kings”, capital city, Lima, where we highly recommend (and can arrange) taking in a culinary tour of Peruvian delights. Encounter endless Inca ruins as you wander the cobbled streets of ancient Cusco, a stunningly beautiful city that is full of and surrounded by a tremendous number of amazing ruins. Travel through the lush Sacred Valley to the majestic ruins of Ollantaytambo – with a wonderful historical town to explore at the base of the huge ruins. Travel to Aguas Calientes by train and be awestruck by the power and beauty of Machu Picchu. Travel to Puno to meet the Uru people on the floating reed islands of Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable body of water in the world, as well as one of the most sacred sites on Earth. Peru offers incredible adventures and our expert guides will help you make the most of every stop, teaching you about the history and cultures along the way.
