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.

Travelling in Peru is challenging. I would recommend any Australian family who cannot speak Spanish should travel with Intrepid. Intrepid provides a local guide who will ensure travellers get transportation to the must see sites, stay at the safest hotels and use restaurants that serve healthy food. Without local knowledge getting the right transport to places, or finding a comfortable hotel becomes a hassle. Our Intrepid Guide, Alejandrina Vega, was outstanding for the entire trip: and made sure everyone in the group saw the best parts of Peru, ate at the healthiest restaurants and looked after us when we suffered from Altitude sickness. She really loves Peru, and was proud to show us the best parts of her great country. I believe the Intrepid family trip to Peru is great value for money considering you visit Lima, the Amazon, Cusco, Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu and much more.

Wonderful and varied family tour of Peru. We had never done a tour before, but would certainly recommend Intrepid. Our guide Norma was amazing; well organised and fun - she made the trip. I would never have dreamed we could have such a successful adventure around Peru with a 5 year old, but a well planned itinerary created specifically for families made it easy. Would definitely use Intrepid again. Thank you.
