Why you'll love this trip
  • Hike jungle trails in search of monkeys, parrots, otters and caimans and sleep in a nature lodge lit by candles and kerosene lamps.
  • Meet the local artisans, farmers and townsfolk of the Sacred Valley – not forgetting the cute alpacas and llamas.
  • Be mesmerised by the mother of all Inca cities, the mysterious Machu Picchu, where you'll enjoy a guided tour.
  • With the help of a resident musician, make your own zampona – a traditional panpipe instrument – and learn how to play it like a local.
  • Cusco has something for everyone, making it perfect for a family visit. A boleto touristico pass grants you access to the best sights in town.

Is this trip right for you?
  • This trip visits places that are at high altitude, and as a result some people can suffer from altitude sickness, regardless of age or physical health. Please see the Medical and health information section of the Essential Trip Information for more detail.
  • According to Machu Picchu visiting regulations, all visitors must follow a pre-determined route within the site. This route must be followed in one direction only, and once the guided visit commences exiting and re-entering the site is not permitted. Once the guided visit concludes, visitors must exit the site and personal exploration of Machu Picchu is not permitted. Please refer to the Itinerary for details.
  • Temperatures in the Amazon can fluctuate from daytime humidity to night-time chill. Insects, especially mosquitoes, are common. We recommend tropical-strength insect repellent and light cotton clothing that covers your arms and legs, with warmer layers for the evening.

This Intrepid family trip to Peru was an all-round great experience for our family of four. We learnt a lot about the country, its culture, customs and the people as well as its incredible history. The Peruvians were very warm and welcoming people, the trip activities we did were interesting, the destinations were varied and well chosen whilst the overall organisation of the trip was very efficient so we could relax and let our fabulous group leader William take care of us.

My 83 year old mother attended this family tour. We all had a great time. Most importantly, though she was able to do just about everything, her pace was slow. Our tour director made sure she had the time and support she needed to enjoy every aspect of this trip. Mauchu Picchu is evert but as wonderful and amazing as you think it is. If Interpid made it possible for my mom to do this trip you can do it too!

This was my 2nd Intrepid trip. Both were excellent. A distinctive feature is connecting with local people and learning something of their life and history. Even better is sharing this with children in places they could never see otherwise.

The trip was perfect for our family, it was very well organized and all the activities were appealing to both parents and children. Our trip leader, Luis, was excellent and ensured we were all well taken care of. Macchi Picchu was without doubt the highlight

This was our first international trip with our kids who are age 6 and eight, and they had an absolute blast and the sets the stage for being able to take another one with them.
