About this trip

Travel to Peru, the cradle of the ancient Inca empire. You will get to know both the ancient history and the living culture of this mega-diverse country, as well as to enjoy its world-class gastronomy. With a well-balanced itinerary, this journey will be fun and enlightening. 


The first destination will be Lima, the capital and largest city. With over 10 million inhabitants, this metropolis has become a global culinary mecca.  Its deep history, from native civilizations to Spanish colonial rule to later influxes of African, Asian, and other European influences form the basis of an eclectic, vibrant, and growing city.


We will then fly to Cusco, high in the Southern Andes. As a way to get acclimatized to the high altitude, we will spend the first couple of nights in the Sacred Valley, a beautifully scenic area just northeast of Cusco. After a few days exploring this historic area, we will take a train ride to Machu Picchu.


After visiting Machu Picchu we will return to Cusco city, where we will stroll through the picturesque cobblestone streets and baroque temples before returning to Lima for our flight back home.

Had a great time in Lima. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to make my reservation for Osaka in time with the trek - I am not sure if I can get a refund for the $120 I paid for that. Altogether, it was a great trip and I enjoyed Peruvian hospitality!

Incredible customer service and professionalism make for a great trip. Guides (Holber in the Sacred Valley) and drivers were on time and professional with comfortable, modern vehicles. They gave great snacks and the recommended food options were excellent. We especially enjoyed Mayta in Lima, Cicciolina in Cusco, and the lakeside pachamanca feast. Holber spoke excellent English, as did the guide who did our Lima airport transfers (Renato, I want to say?) Drivers also seemed to speak decent English. Schedules and plans were customizable and flexible even during the trip, both in response to flight changes as well as energy levels/group desires. However, they went above and beyond when one of our party needed to be treated for altitude sickness. They made sure that the rest of the party was well-looked after, but frequently checked in both in person at the clinic and by Whatsapp and helped with medical translation and giving family updates. They treated us like someone in the family was sick. Highly, highly recommended for your Peru plans.
