Why you'll love this trip
  • Hike jungle trails in search of monkeys, parrots, otters and caimans 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 llamas.
  • Be mesmerised by the mother of all Inca cities, the mysterious Machu Picchu, where you'll enjoy a guided tour.
  • With the help of a resident musician, make your own zampona – a traditional panpipe instrument – and learn how to play it like a local.
  • Cusco has something for everyone, making it perfect for a family visit. A boleto touristico pass grants you access to the best sights in town.

Is this trip right for you?
  • Cusco is located a spectacular 3450 metres above sea level, so it's important to be patient as your body adjusts. See the ‘Essential Trip Information’ section for information on altitude sickness.
  • Tradition runs deep in beautiful old Cusco, so a little homework will put you in good stead. Ask your leader about photography etiquette.
  • 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 repellent.
  • The weather can be unpredictable in the Andes. Be sure to bring warm clothes and prepare for all elements.

This was my 2nd Intrepid trip. Both were excellent. A distinctive feature is connecting with local people and learning something of their life and history. Even better is sharing this with children in places they could never see otherwise.

The trip was perfect for our family, it was very well organized and all the activities were appealing to both parents and children. Our trip leader, Luis, was excellent and ensured we were all well taken care of. Macchi Picchu was without doubt the highlight

This was our first international trip with our kids who are age 6 and eight, and they had an absolute blast and the sets the stage for being able to take another one with them.

The Peru family trip exceeded my expectations! We traveled with our 6 & 8 year old, and our Trip Leader, Sally L, was above and beyond remarkable from start to finish. The itinerary was varied, kept our kids engaged and was a wonderful choice for our kiddos first international trip! What a wonderful country and experience! Note to be prepared for hydration and altitude and cautious with food/water.

We went on this tour with our boys (8 and 10). They were the perfect age for it. It was great to see alot of Peru in a short time! There were early wake ups but definitely worth it! The Amazon lodge is remote so expect to "rough it" a little bit but the rest of the accommodations were very comfortable. My family of 4 did get split up into 2 rooms (next door) but we enjoyed. Our tour leader Sally was beyond AMAZING and literally made our trip! She took such good care of us and made our trip stress free! We also felt very safe in Peru and would not hesitate to go back!
