Highlights of Peru

13-day Group Tour Of Peru

Introduction

Peru is undoubtedly one of the most visited countries in Latin America, and rightly so. The land of the Incas is where fascinating, historic architecture meets world-class cuisine, where deep blue lakes are adorned with a backdrop of the towering Andes, and where one of the world’s most famous archaeological sites, Machu Picchu, proudly stands at the top of a mountain.

This is a country that truly offers a vast range of opportunities for exploration and discovery, whilst the Amerindian cultures combined with colonial Spanish and Asian influences provide a melting pot of culture for you to really get your teeth stuck into. Our Peru Highlights escorted small group tour is an exhilarating journey to Peru’s most celebrated destinations and will, quite simply, leave you in awe of this beautiful country.
