Peru Highlights

15 Day Tour Of Peru  |  6 Departures  |  Max Group Size: 16  |  Price from £3,399 pp

Peru is undoubtedly one of the most visited countries in Latin America, and rightly so. The land of the Incas is where stunning 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.

From the culturally rich colonial cities of Arequipa and Cusco to the breathtaking landscapes of Lake Titicaca and the Colca Canyon, Peru will enchant you with its natural beauty, impeccable gastronomy and fascinating architecture. But if that's not enough, we have left the best for last – one of the world’s greatest wonders will await you at the end of the tour. Enveloped by clouds and surrounded by beautiful mountains covered in lush vegetation, Machu Picchu always lives up to every expectation, and although it is often busy with visitors, nothing can diminish the thrill of visiting this famous site.

We cannot recommend visiting Peru enough and our Peru Highlights escorted small group tour is the best way to explore this amazing country with complete peace of mind, and in the company of new friends.
