Detailed Description

Make memories your whole family can look back on for years to come when you journey to the beautiful country of Peru. You will experience the best the picturesque nation has to offer alongside your expert guide during your week-long customized travels. Not only will you behold the diverse beauty of Peru, but also delve deep into the cultural traditions and history that make this such a unique place to visit.

From the start, your itinerary will be filled with blood-pumping excitement as you set out for the captivating rainforest region. After landing in Lima, you will take a connecting flight to Puerto Maldonado in the heart of the Amazon Rainforest. You and the kids will be welcomed by the chirping of exotic bird species and rustling of leaves of monkeys swing from one treetop to the next. Before you know it, you will be swinging from the treetops just the same as you take off on a zipline adventure across the Amazon's canopy layer. Then, you will get down low as you glide across the river and keep watch for colorful macaws and other indigenous bird species. Later in the day, you will attend a culture class among the thick vegetation where you will learn about the groups of people who have called the rainforest home for generations.

During the second half of your family adventure, you will spend time in the birthplace of the Inca Empire, Cusco, where you will visit the esteemed Plaza de Armas and step inside the halls of the Sun Temple. You will visit several local markets and sample culinary delights beloved around the country. Then, you will journey through the Sacred Valley as you marvel at several key sites of the Inca Empire before descending on the quaint town of Chinchero. You will take part in several cultural traditions and feast with the locals. That evening, you will truly experience the magic of the Sacred Valley from your glassed-in hotel room suspended on a mountainside as you stargaze. Your trip will culminate in an unforgettable trip to Machu Picchu as you step back in time and appreciate the ingenuity of one of the Incas' greatest designs. You will follow your guide to the most prominent features of the site before enjoying some time to explore the masterpiece on your own. Finally, you can take stunning family photos that everyone can look back on for years to come.
