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 from Lima

I was very impressed by Intrepid’s goals and how our guide, Bobby, gave us more than a superficial view of Peru. Excellent.

Inca Trail Express

Moira · Traveled June 2024
Incredible trip to Machu Picchu via the Inca Trail. The hike was challenging, but definitely worth it for the spectacular views and the experience. Our guide Raul G. was exceptionally knowledgeable and organized and took great care of our group. The tents and mattresses were surprisingly comfortable, and the food was delicious, varied, and beautifully presented - hard to believe the chefs were able to prepare such excellent meals on the trail. Really happy we booked with Intrepid. Highly recommended!
