Peru Tours

Peru, over the years, has established itself as the ultimate South American traveling experience.

With its fascinating landscapes and absorbing history, people with all kinds of interests can enjoy Peru tours. Backpackers traveling through South America love to visit Peru as its central location allows easy travel throughout the continent, bordering as it does on Ecuador, Colombia, Bolivia, Brazil and Chile.

Travelers with suitcases are no less inclined to fall for the country's considerable charms, with luxury tours in Peru being a favored option for experienced adventurers with a budget, and all other levels being catered for by the country's impressive tourist infrastructure and high quality local travel agents.

It is no secret that the Inca’s carved the way for some of the most formidable and enigmatic trekking trails in the world. Nowadays these attract millions of visitors worldwide to come and marvel at the ancient wonders, as well as the calm of Cuzco, the bustle of Lima and the surprising beaches on Peru's lesser-visited coast.

Oh, and the food. The food! Peruvian cuisine is some of the finest on earth, and Lima is one of the gastronomical world's best-kept secrets, so be sure to take a food tour in Peru to try it before the word is out!

Best time of the year to visit Peru?

June-September is the driest and most popular time to visit Peru. It can also be overcrowded during these months so to witness Peru with less crowds we would advise going between April-May, and also October.

The wet months between November and March should be avoided, especially for Inca Trail treks and Machu Picchu treks.

Food and Culture of Peru

In the last two decades Peruvian cuisine has defied all odds and emerged as one of the finest cuisine destinations on the planet. Of course, speak to the locals and they'll have seen it coming all along; you'll find no more passionate proponents of Peruvian cuisine than Peruvians themselves, and they have every right to be proud. Peru food tours are now common practice and are gaining attention worldwide, so be sure to take full advantage of local knowledge and take a gastronomical tour of Peru while you're in town.

So what attracts us? Well some say it is the incongruous mixes on the palate, for example uncooked fish with fruit. If the Peruvians hadn’t been bequeathed with the inherent innovation, however, then “outrageous” dishes like this would have never been discovered.

Cerviche, although common throughout Latin America, is a Peruvian delicacy that pleases palate after palate. Then there is the somehow appealing roasted guinea pig. Home to Peruvian cuisine, this dish has been intriguing travelers for years.

It would definitely be a shame to miss out on cooking classes on your visit to Peru.

The rich colors of Peruvian dress-ware is immediately infectious with many tourists adopting the local attire on their travels.

Main Attractions and Tourist Regions in Peru

So iconic are trekking tours to its summit, a visit to Machu Picchu is the defining feature of any Peru vacation.

The quiet charms of Cuzco, the neighboring city, is where the enchantment begins. Rooftop scenery and traditional shops are the rewarding stop-offs in this chilly, high-altitude gem of visiting Peru.

Hiking trips of the Inca trail are offered all around Cuzco by many local agents. Hundreds of tourists each month scramble to see this iconic site, trekking up the trail to experience the grandeur and mystery of the lost city of Machu Picchu.

After the veritable spectacle of Machu Picchu, prepare for more mystery as you kayak on the eerie yet wondrous Lake Titicaca, the largest lake in South America. It lies serenely in between the Bolivian and Peruvian border and adventurous travelers will find much to do there.

Lima, Peru's capital, features an eclectic melange of fine restaurants, contemporary art galleries, top of the range hotels and a home away from home for all those long-haul travelers. Be sure to take advantage of a food tour in Lima to sample the delights of the local cuisine (and be warned, the local tipple, Pisco, packs a punch!).

Tours to Peru would most definitely be incomplete without a tour to the capitvating Amazon rainforest. Make sure to take one of the many Amazon cruise tours and let your senses run as wild as the nature you witness.

Dennis Chamberlain, March 2017

Tati guided two couples in the planning a fantastic holiday in South America.
The hotels she recommended in the Amazon, Cusco, Machu Picchu, Lima and Santiago were all outstanding and very central to the city centres visited.
The hotel Monastario in Cusco is worth singling out as one of the finest hotels we have stayed in, anywhere in the world.We loved our time there.
In fact the Belmond Group of hotels Tati recommended for us stay in, in Peru were all outstanding. (We don't have this hotel chain in Australia which is disappointing.) Worth considering- great hotels and fantastic staff.
Belmont's Hiram Bingham train from Cusco to Machu Picchu was also a highlight
and a recommendation from Tati.
The singular Hotel in Santiago, selected by Tati was also a beautiful boutique hotel worth considering.
We had 12 flights during this holiday and at every airport Tati had tour guides there waiting to pick us up and show us the sights of the places visited.
All tour guides were very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the places visited.In most cases the transport for the 4 of us was most suitable, although the transport used in Rio was almost impossible for 4 people in the back to see the sites as we drove around. More suitable transport would have enhanced our tour of Rio.
The only disappointing accomodation in Santiago was a couple of nights at the Ritz-Carlton which had a beautiful foyer and downstairs area but all of our rooms were dated and in need of updating. The hotel Tati recommended The Singular was a much better option on our return to Santiago during our trip.
The two Sofitel hotels in Buenos Aires and Rio were both booked by me and both were a little disappointing but in great locations.
We were constantly contacted by our Trip.Me staff throughout the 7 weeks we were away. They checked flight times, pick ups, and were always available.
Tati and the local staff were fantastic!
We used Trip.Me to help us plan a visit to Sri Lanka last year and the their planning was outstanding then also.
Tati's expertise and guidance along with local staff made our trip to South America very special.

Tati named by far the most perfect trip ever for my friend and I! We would constantly say, "Wow! Tati thought of everything!" Every second was planned and executed to its fullest and not a single thing went wrong. I would highly recommend not only going to Peru but definitely planning through Tati!
