Why you'll love this trip
  • Opt to trek the 1-Day Inca Trail, an excellent option for those wanting to experience trekking in Peru, but don’t want to do the full four days
  • The giant desert inscriptions of the Nazca Lines are one of Peru's great unsolved mysteries. Scrutinise them up close on a viewing platform or from a bird's-eye-view on an optional flight
  • Get to know the residents of a village in the Sacred Valley when you join them for a lunch of local specialties and learn about life in this storied part of the Andean highlands.
  • A trip through Peru wouldn't be complete without a visit to Machu Picchu. Let a scenic train do the climbing for you, then enjoy a guided tour around the world-famous ruins.
  • Spend a full day exploring the floating islands of Lake Titicaca and Taquile Island, with the chance to meet the local Uru people

Is this trip right for you?
  • Parts of your trip go above 28000m/9200ft where it is common for travellers to experience some adverse health effects due to the altitude - regardless of your age, gender and fitness. Please see the ‘Medical and Health Information’ section of the Essential Trip Information for more detail.
  • Visitors are not permitted to explore Machu Picchu without a Machu Picchu guide (not our trip leaders) and must follow set routes within the site. This trip includes one guided visit of Machu Picchu (approximately 1.5 - 2 hours). Your leader will provide more information to ensure you get the most out of your visit to this incredible site.

The trip was made for me by the guide Juan Palomino. His level of enthusiasm for his country and vast knowledge and his communications were wonderful However, on the downside the trips by bus were long and quite unpleasant and there are three big ones taking pretty much 3 days of your trip. This was not a comfortable trip at all with these long long bus rides. Juan tried to make the most of it my giving us commentary on anything that was interesting but they were still long To make it a "comfort" trip planes should be used wherever possible or perhaps look into using the train. To summarise the guide made the trip enjoyable and without him this would probably have been a very different review.

Peru is a revelation there is more to it than Machu Picchu, including wonderful Arequipa the White City, vibrant Cusco , and lively Lima.The people are friendly and more than happy to engage with strangers. Food to suit all tastes including Guinea pig for the adventurous. Little villages and towns with family run business ready to welcome strangers. Peru is a paradise for those interested in antiquities it abounds with ancient sites, and it’s Guides are happy to share their knowledge with the visitor

Our Majestic Tour of Peru was excellent. Very helpful and knowledgeable Tour guide who spoke good English, lovely hotels, breakfasts. Busy itinerary but learned a lot about culture and history. Aldo interacting with local people was wonderful. To achieve these some very long days traveling but in nice large minibusses. Thank you Intrepid for our holiday of a lifetime, Also celebrated 40 years being married during trip!

From the desert to the mountains a truly stunning country, brought alive by our amazing tour leader Leo and all the other local guides we met. I would thoroughly recommend this trip if you want to see real Peru.
