Peru Travel Information — Is it for me?

Is this the right trip for me?

Perú trips offer a perfect balance of activity, education, phenomenal cuisine and pure luxury.

We recommend a moderate level of fitness, particularly for Cusco and Machu Picchu as walks and hikes are at elevation and have uphill and sometimes steep portions. Good balance, health and proper footwear are essential for the most enjoyable adventure. 

To ensure your enjoyment at altitude, we can arrange to have oxygen available in your Cusco hotel room. Just let us know when confirming your arrangements.

 

Climbing stairs to explore the site are a prelude to the spectacular optional hikes.


Our 11-day Center of the Inca Universe tour is designed to provide an introduction to Lima, followed by a comprehensive tour of Cuzco and the Sacred Valley, culminating with 3 days at Machu Picchu. You'll stay at luxurious accommodations, and enjoy personalized service from our ground staff.  For those with limited time, we offer an express 7-day Wonders of Machu Picchu tour that still includes 3 days in Machu Picchu, with less time in Cuzco and the Sacred Valley.

If you have the time and wish to venture farther afield, we're happy to make custom arrangements to visit pre-Columbian sites along the northern and southern coasts, arrange jungle visits in the northern or southern Amazon basin, visits to Lake Titicaca and Colca Canyon.

If you can't get enough nature, consider combining your visit to Peru with a relaxing cruise in the Galápagos with 16-day and 20-day options.
