Detailed Description

On this 7-day tour of Peru, you can discover the country’s rich history, inspiring landscapes, and intriguing cultural traditions. You avoid the crowds at Peru's typical tourist destinations and develop an appreciation for the immense diversity this country has to offer.

You will begin your epic journey in Peru's bustling capital city of Lima. After touching down along the illustrious coastline, you will have an opportunity to explore the city center. First, you can stroll through the lush gardens of Lima's high-class neighborhood of Miraflores before an immersive tour of the downtown area. In the morning, you will transfer to the town of Palcoyo, which is just two hours from downtown Cusco. Here, you will embark on a short hike to the lesser-known Rainbow Mountain, which is a brilliant array of colorful lines of sand. The following day, you will experience the splendor of the Sacred Valley and stop in the unassuming town of Chinchero to attend an authentic culture class.

Next, you will venture to the mysterious expanse of the Amazon Rainforest. While many tourists may venture to Puerto Maldonado to get a brief glimpse of jungle scenery, you will travel to the secluded Manu National Park. Here, you will get to know some of the region's inhabitants, including isolated groups of people who have called the rainforest home for centuries. You will take part in a local culture class and sample delectable local cuisine, including juane de pollo. Then, you can partake in a scenic riverboat ride alongside your expert guide to spot some of the most exotic animals of the region, including macaws.

During the last day of your Peruvian adventure, you will travel to the island of Llachon on Lake Titicaca. In the morning, you will enjoy a guided tour of the lake before exploring the fascinating Uros Islands. That evening, you will step foot on Llachon island for a dinner of fresh lake trout. The next morning, you will travel to Lima's International Airport for your flight home.
