Those who opt to join one of our Peru tours will be signing up for some unforgettable impressions. Peru has culture in abundance. Ancient remains from the Inca time such as the city of Machu Picchu and the Spanish colonial architecture in Arequipa, Puno and Cuzco create indelible memories from your travels in Peru. Also, in terms of nature, the country is full of highlights. The Andes include snow-capped mountains of more than 6,000 meters in height and volcanoes offering beautiful vistas. Another area of outstanding natural beauty can be found at Lake Titicaca, the largest lake in South America.
The diversity of Peru soon becomes apparent while travelling. One minute you are walking through the tropical rainforest then the next moment you find yourself in the desert! In addition, travelling to Peru means travelling to a country with a colourful and impressive population. The authentic Indians have a fascinating history.
Perhaps the most famous landmark you visit during your group tour of Peru is the 'lost' city of Machu Picchu. This hidden city exists thanks to the fact that the Spanish conquerors never discovered this Inca city and therefore it has not been destroyed. The location of Machu Picchu is almost more spectacular than the mystical Inca ruins themselves. If you wish to add the Inca trail then make sure to do this at the time of booking – it’s popular! Machu Picchu is an absolute highlight of your Peru tour! The Nazca Lines are both wonderful and remarkable. These mysterious drawings in the sand are hundreds of years old and have an unclear history. They are a true mystery and incredibly impressive to see up close.
Puno is the gateway to Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake on the planet! Here you can take a pleasant excursion by boat to visit the floating Uros Islands, meet the people that live there and learn about their way of life. The city of Cuzco is reason enough to travel to Peru. This is probably the most beautiful city in South America. Spanish mansions, monasteries and churches sit on top of foundations of Inca ruins. You won't believe your eyes when you walk through the streets of this alluring city. You can explore on horseback and choose to take part in some great rafting.
If you are travelling to Peru then you will also stay in the capital, Lima. A city tour of Lima will include the historic centre where you can see the Plaza Mayor and the catacombs of the San Francisco Monastery. The southern city of Arequipa should not be missed. This 'white city' is located at the foot of the imposing Misti volcano. Here you will visit the Santa Catalina Monastery where you will have to navigate your way through a maze!.
Peru tours will provide unforgettable moments, both in terms of nature and culture - you will experience many highlights. Peru is simply fantastic!
