About this trip

Discover The CORE of Peru with it's vibrant culture and fascinating history and the ancient Inca Empire. We'll Experience Lima, the gastronomic capital and sample its iconic foods. Uncover the mysteries of the Sacred Valley and the Inca capital of Cuzco and explore Machu Picchu, one of the New Seven Wonders of the Modern World. 

We've mapped out some of the best restaurants in Cusco and Lima for you to experience, you won't be disappointed! 

Machu Picchu is a 15th-century Inca citadel, often referred to as the "Lost City of the Incas". The Incans did their best to build and keep Machu Picchu hidden to protect those living on the grounds. For that reason, bring comfortable shoes because it will require planes, trains and automobiles, then a brief walk to get us there. 

Machu Picchu

To protect the structures and peace of Machu Picchu, the government has imposed some pretty strict rules. The most significant is that visitors cannot enter without a guide so buying tickets in advance is a must, I've already taken care of that. Other rules include you cannot enter with food, drinks (except water), alcohol, umbrellas, camera or photographic stands, musical instruments, or high-heels. Visitors cannot climb or lean on the walls or structures on the site, nor can they smoke, make loud noises, clap, whistle, sing, or shout. Also, it is important to note, that visitors cannot lie down, run, jump, or get naked on site – apparently the latter has happened several times all in the name of capturing a selfie 😶.

I had a great time! The Core always picks the best tour guides, who are very courteous and extremely knowledgeable of their culture. The food in Peru’s restaurants was outstanding. Seeing the historical Machu Picchu was a ‘bucket list’ activity, for me. Overall, it was an excellent experience, and I’m so blessed and glad that I went.

I had an absolutely wonderful time, with great accomodations and fantastic food. The excursions were second to none. Especially the Peruvian cooking class and history tours of Lima, Cuscos and Machu Pichu. Tour guides were extremely knowledgeable and provided in-depth information on each tour.

Thank you for the fantastic experience. The Nov 2023 trip to Peru 🇵🇪 was outstanding the food, the tour guides and the locations were perfect. I posted the pictures on Facebook and one of the first comments from a classmate was, “The place we read about in Jr. High school..” the pictures really didn’t it justice. Waiting in my next CORE travel experience.
