Discover Peru on this Family Adventure, touring the Amazon Jungle, Machu Picchu, Cuzco and Lima.
Gaze up at Peru’s dazzling peaks and into picturesque valleys to understand why the Andean mountains were sacred for the Incas. This well-paced holiday combines time in the fascinating historic cities of Lima and Cuzco with time exploring some of Peru’s most amazing settings. Enjoy a memorable train journey through the heart of the sacred valley to Machu Picchu and breathe in the magical spirit of the Incas.
Discover the best sights of Lima, from the colonial architecture and excellent museums to the mysterious catacombs and their ornate displays of human bones
Delve into the untouched world of the Amazon rainforest. Hike jungle trails in search of monkeys, parrots, otters and caymans 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 vincunas
Be mesmerised by the mother of all Incan cities, the mysterious Machu Picchu. Enjoy a guided tour of the site plus an extra day of free time to explore
With ancient cultures, beautiful architecture and stunning mountains, Cuzco has something for everyone, making it perfect for a family visit. A boleto touristico pass grants you access to the best sights in town
The traffic in Lima may seem a little chaotic at first. Rest assured you have a sensible, defensive driver who values safety over saving time.
Cuzco is located at 3,450 metres above sea level, so it's important to be patient as your body adjusts. See the 'Health' section for information on altitude sickness.
Tradition runs deep in beautiful old Cuzco, so a little homework will put you in good stead. Ask your leader about photography etiquette, and remember to order 'Cerveza helada' for a beer that's cold!
The Amazon Jungle can be very hot and humid, so it's important to drink plenty of water and wear light cotton clothing. Make sure you also bring tropical-strength insect repellant.
The weather can be unpredictable in the Andes. Be sure to bring warm clothes and prepare for all elements.

On June 30th Peruvian authorities released a new list of regulations for visiting Machu Picchu, which came into effect from July 1st. The main points impacting our visits are:
1. There is now a time limit to visit the citadel. Morning visitors must exit the site by 12pm and afternoon visitors by 4.30pm
2. Visitors must complete a designated circuit, in one direction only. Exiting and re-entering the site is not permitted and, upon completion, visitor must exit the site. There is no allowance for personal exploration of the site any longer.
Overall we support these changes as they help preserve this invaluable archaeological site. While this somehow restricts the amount of time we are now allowed to spend in Machu Picchu, we’ll do all possible to maximise your time there and make sure you have the best possible experience.

Our Peru trip with our 8yo daughter was perfect, with just the right amount of activity to make her tired, but not too tired and still kept her interested along with us. The rain forest was the highlight. We went during the dry season in mid-August, which was great and had the added bonus of many religious festivals happening at the same time in different towns, which made for an even more interesting cultural experience.

Be cautious to provide an extra day for connecting flights out of Cusco as flights are frequently delayed or cancelled. We missed our connection and it was a big problem rescheduling our flight home.
