These days, Machu Picchu is recognisable to people all over the world. It springs up in history books, on our friends’ Facebook walls and in – ahem – many a travel brochure. But it wasn’t always so. After the Incas abandoned their citadel in the 1500s, Machu Picchu remained hidden from the Spanish conquerors for centuries, used sporadically by local peasants until its discovery by an American archeologist in 1911.
It’s easy to understand why so many tourists embark on a Machu Picchu trek each year, and why the site recently became one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Standing at the Sun Gate as the mist lifts off the mountains, it’s impossible not to feel just this: a worldly sense of wonder.
We incorporate a Machu Picchu tour into all of our small-group Peruvian adventures. Whether you want to hike through cloud forests along the classic Inca Trail, challenge yourself on the quieter Quarry Trail or simply take the train, our local leaders will keep you safe, informed and inspired every step of the way.

Peru Family Adventure, December 2016
Took our five year old son on this trip. It was the perfect combination of culture and adventure. How do you top ancient Inca ruins, fishing, archery, spiders, cute alpacas AND chocolate? Big fan of these family style trips too. The kids get an opportunity to hang out with other kids and the adults get to enjoy their dinner (and beverages) while the kids entertain each other. I have already recommended this trip to friends and would love to do another.

Peru Encompassed, December 2016
My first time travelling with Intrepid and I booked three trips back to back. I was very looked after and impressed by the level of interaction and information given by their excellent guides. Without a doubt I will come back for more adventures.

This is an excellent trip if you would like to experience the best of what Peru has to offer. This tour gave us the opportunity to connect with the local people through the local guides and homestays. It was an amazing experience! Highly recommended!
