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.

We had an incredible time! We did the train option and really enjoyed seeing the different archeological sites around Cusco. Machu Picchu was amazing. Jackeline and Carmen were fantastic guides! So knowledgeable, organized, and kind.

Classic Peru

Jag · Traveled May 2024
Hotels were very average. Tour guide spent every evening with us at restaurants based around his friends (I am pretty sure he was getting fed/paybacks etc). Also, the factories recommended seemed sketchy - again, doing us a "favour" by taking us there on his day off. One evening, quoted "a gift" to us all, live bank at his friends hotel. We paid for the meal, 20 minute live band - then he asked for tips for the band! Not much of a gift then! Finally, having quoted $40 for a rainbow mountain trip, he increased this to $135 and pressured all to accept! Hard work, long days. Cold night at the homestay - zero contingency for cold weather (nobody was happy with the weather).

Classic Peru

Elizabeth · Traveled May 2024
This was my first experience of an adventure holiday and I wasn’t disappointed. It was invigorating and exceeded my expectations in every way. I travelled alone from the UK and joined a group of only seven people who were very welcoming also we were very fortunate to have such a knowledgeable and supportive guide named Giscard. I did find that the trip was more physically challenging than I anticipated and certainly involved more hiking than I expected. Peru is a beautiful country with so much to see and do and I would highly recommend at least one trip in a lifetime.
