Peru Tours & Holidays

Peru is an indomitable land of deserts etched with ancient geoglyphs, rainforests teeming with wildlife, and soaring peaks harbouring secret cities.

While many travellers come to visit one of South America's most famous sites, the ruins of Machu Picchu, the real Peru lies within its warm, proud inhabitants – many of whom can trace their bloodlines back to the Incas. What you might not expect is the foodie bonanza found in Lima or the adventures that await you in the ancient capital of Cusco. Whether you’re exploring the cobbled streets of Arequipa, bobbing on the floating islands of Lake Titicaca or learning about mummies in Nazca, our Peru tours will have you feeling like a modern-day Indiana Jones. Just don’t forget to pack your fedora.

Inca Trail Express

Brendan · Traveled March 2024
This is a challenge folks! Both inside and out. Your spirt, your knowledge and calves will all grow. It’s not easy but you can do it and will be better for it. If you fall the family you gain during the trip will pick you back up. It was awe inspiring and I now have a new happy place.

Inca Trail Express

Inca Trail was such a rewarding experience. This trip overall was wonderful and there’s not one thing I would change about it. The hotels stayed at were clean and comfy. Food was absolutely delicious. If you’re thinking about it, do it!! I can’t rave about this trip enough and Holger is an awesome guide!

Classic Peru

Tamara · Traveled March 2024
Trip of a lifetime. Have travelled a fair amount, though never with a tour group. Before we left, it felt like a lot of money, but whilst we were on the trip, it felt absolutely worth it. Some amazing memories, and especially the local experiences that I never would’ve got if I’d organised myself. I understand why so many people are repeat Intrepid customers. I can recommend earplugs/noise cancelling headphones for most of the hotels though. Most hotels didn't have adequate soundproofing - a fair few tired people each morning! Probably need 50 GBP in soles and 50 GBP in USD minimum for tips. Extra for spending money. Ubaldo/Bobby was a fantastic tour guide - interesting, funny and very knowledgeable with any question we asked. I will be saving up for my next intrepid tour as soon as I’m back 👌🏻

Inca Trail Express from Lima

Kara · Traveled March 2024
I had an amazing experience with Intrepid doing the Inca Trail in Peru! Our guide was super knowledgeable and I learned so much about the local history, culture, and environment. I could see the tangible difference between Intrepid and other tour groups in terms of socially responsible travel - we stayed only in locally-owned accommodations, we had the opportunity to visit local communities and support traditional textile artists, and our porters on the Inca Trail had supportive gear and protected working conditions. I have never traveled with a tour group before, but would absolutely travel with Intrepid again.
