Wonders of Peru & Bolivia SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Lima is a large, fascinating hotchpotch of architectural styles, coastal scenes, world cuisines, impressive museums, traditional culture and modern arts and nightlife.
Located on the Tambopata River near Puerto Maldonado, our eco-friendly lodge is the perfect base for expeditions into the jungle and encounters with the magnificent fauna and flora.
Cuzco is the gateway to Machu Picchu and a city with majestic architecture, impressive ruins, a lively town centre and cultural significance around every cobblestone corner.
The Sacred Valley was once the heartland of the Inca Empire and now contains picturesque villages and impressive archeological sites. Located in the Urubamba Valley, the city of Ollantaytambo is an incredible archeological site and the starting point of the classic Inca Trail trek.
Sitting at the base of Machu Picchu in a picturesque valley, Aguas Calientes takes its name from the numerous hot springs that are dotted throughout the area.
Rise early for the chance to watch Machu Picchu's imposing structure emerge from the mist in the morning light. Learn about the site's history on a tour with a local guide, then return to Cuzco for some further time getting to know this charming colonial city.
Puno is a colourful town on the Peruvian shores of Lake Titicaca, expect to see traditionally dressed locals, chaotic markets and, if lucky enough, even dancing in the streets. Crossing the border of Peru and Bolivia, Lake Titicaca is the largest lake in South America and has some fascinating islands and hefty-sized frogs living within its waters.
Built in a canyon, the unique and bewtiching city of La Paz is filled with steep, cobbled streets, fascinating markets, evident tradition and captivating sights.

Wonders of Peru & Bolivia, May 2014

Tour was well organized except for the last day in LaPlaz, Bolivia. We arrived late (4:30 pm) on the Wednesday and our next day (final day) in LaPlaz was a "free day". As we were warned about the dangers in the City, passport safety etc. etc. we were on our own that day. I think something should have been organized, such as a tours. As it was, we all have to arrange a tour on our own. Our tour guide left at 6:00 am and we were basically on our own. A group of us did arrange our own tour, but it would have made more sense to include this last day with an organized tour through Intrepid and/or Peregine.

Wonders of Peru & Bolivia, February 2014
I had a good holiday overall, though in part this was because I was determined to make the best of it despite issues that arose. Our tour leader (Jhonn Smith Gomez) was fantastic, and did as good a job as anyone could have in the circumstances, with there being various problems along the way for some/most passengers on this trip - predominantly issues with incorrect and/or out of date information in people's itineraries meaning aspects of the trip did not meet people's expectations. For me the major issue was the fact that I booked an 'Intrepid comfort-style' trip and expected like the previous Intrepid comfort trips I've been on that I'd be travelling with a range of people mostly around my own age - typically in their 30's and 40's, maybe one of two in their 50's.........instead however it turned out that I was instead on a 'Peregrine' tour which has a much older demographic and which I would not have booked had I known.
