Peruvian Pathways 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.
A small city sitting on the confluence of the Tambopata and Madre de Dios rivers, Puerto Maldonado is the gateway for trips into Peru's incredible Amazon Jungle.
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.
Built sometime in the 15th century and rediscovered in 1911, the staggering ruins of Machu Picchu were thought to be an estate for the Incan emperor, Pachacuti. A World Heritage site set amongst red-green hills with ruins scattered close by, Cuzco is impressive in every way - be it history, culture, nightlife or architecture.
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.
Founded in 1535, Lima still has a wealth of colonial buildings and grandiose churches, plus there are many interesting museums and great restaurants to enjoy.

Peruvian Pathways, January 2014
There was some initial confusion due to the merger of Intrepid and Peregrine tour including our trip notes say the pre-tour meeting was at 2pm but we arrived back at the hotel at 1.40 and the meeting had started at 1pm. The Peregrine trip notes included a City Tour of Lima when Intrepid's didn't and the Intrepid trip notes included a dinner on the first night but Peregrine didn't. It would have been good if we had been provided with information and maps etc about the places we were visiting and hotels we were staying (we were given this useful information at the pre-tour on the other intrepid tour that we did) and if we were provided with briefings about the what to expect for the next few days as we were often only given info when we asked questions.
