Detailed Description

This 10-day tour through Peru will take you through the heart of valleys, the heights of mountaintops, and to the canopy of forests. Whether you’ve always wanted to walk among clouds or drift along a river, this journey through Peru will have you meandering through the wonders of Lima, along the eclectic streets of Cusco, and within the wilds of the Amazon Rainforest. If you’ve always dreamed of Spanish churches or Incan fortresses, Andean textiles, or fresh ceviche, Peru stretches the imagination with how deep its wonders can take you. In and outside of the city, up and down the mountains, and from ruins to rainforest, this tailor-made trip will tantalize your mind and linger in your memories.

You adventure begins with your arrival in Lima. The metropolis is filled with diversity, within it streets, neighborhoods, and culture. You will transfer to Cusco where the undulating hills of the city are paved with cobblestones and lined with remnants of the Spanish colonial past. Outside of the city visit the Andean towns of Pisac and Ollantaytambo where the traditional villages sit beneath the lingering ruins, while the colors of the Pisac Market shine like textile gold. Venture through the Sacred Valley, along the foothills of the Andes, where you will journey up onto the citadel to find the Lost City, where Machu Picchu tours begin, high above the valley. Explore the remnants of the city before returning to Cusco the following day.

Your adventure through Peru continues as you depart Cusco for the secluded Manu Wildlife Center. Bask in the splendors and magic of the rainforest sitting along the Amazon basin. Explore the various hiking paths, see the oxbow lakes, and witness the sensational wildlife rarely witnessed by outsiders. Depart by boat back to the airport and return to Cusco where the ruins on the ledge of the city continue to tower over the Incan capital. After traversing the expansive world of Peru you can look back on the your journey and know that it was more than just a holiday; it took you from ruins of history to the wilds of the rainforest, and back again.
