Peru Travel Information

Travel to Peru

Potential Destinations

Though fully customizable, Peru travel packages most often include a round-trip tour of the country. Beginning in the capital of Lima, you may choose to travel north or south to begin your country tour.

If traveling north, your trip to Peru can begin in the historic city center of Trujillo. Enjoy the chance to soak up local culture before moving on to the traditional fishermen’s beach town of Huanchaco. Travel further north to the tranquil village of Tucume, known for its impressive pyramids and breathtaking views.

Journeying further inland, you can make your way to the village of Cocachimba. The spectacular terrain is home to the Gocta Waterfall, one of the highest falls in the world. You can even take a dip in the beautiful (yet cold!) base pool of the waterfall.

The southern half of Peru boasts wonders of its own. A visit to Machu Picchu is certainly the defining feature of any trip to Peru. Machu Picchu is the best-known archaeological site on the continent, and you can enjoy a guided tour or explore at your own pace.

After Machu Picchu, you may choose to kayak or travel by motor boat on Lake Titicaca, the largest lake in South America. It lies serenely between the Bolivian and Peruvian border and is the highest navigable lake in the world.

The neighboring city of Cuzco is a quiet and enchanting place. Picture-worthy rooftop scenery and traditional shops are just some of the rewarding aspects of a round trip of Peru. The Inca trails surrounding Cuzco make for many incredible hiking opportunities, especially if you are looking for a challenge.

While in Peru, you will also want to take time to explore the capital of Lima. It features an eclectic mélange of fine restaurants, contemporary art galleries, and luxury hotels. Be sure to sign up for a food tour and sample the delights of the local cuisine.

Trips to Peru would most definitely be incomplete without a trek through the captivating Amazon rainforest. Book an Amazon cruise tour of your liking, and prepare to be amazed by the vast and wild nature surrounding you.

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

Somewhat surprisingly, in the last two decades Peru has emerged as one of the finest cuisine destinations on the planet. Of course, speak to the locals and they will tell you they have seen it coming! Peruvian food tours are gaining attention worldwide and are quickly becoming popular components of any travel in Peru. What is so special? Some say it is the seemingly incongruous mixes for the palate—for example, uncooked fish paired with fruit. But “outrageous” dishes like these are gaining attention. Ceviche, although common throughout Latin America, is a Peruvian delicacy that pleases most everyone. Another Peruvian favorite is roasted guinea pig, which has been intriguing travelers for years.

While Peruvian cuisine is colorful in its own right, the vibrant Peruvian clothes are not to be overlooked. With many opportunities to browse local shops, you may just find yourself adopting the rich Peruvian trends, both abroad and when you return home!

About Peru trips

Over the years, Peru has established itself as the ultimate South American destination. With its fascinating landscapes and absorbing history, people with all kinds of interests can enjoy a Peru tour. Its central location allows for easy travel to other countries within the continent as well. A Peru vacation just might be the perfect excuse to visit the bordering countries of Ecuador, Colombia, Bolivia, Brazil, and Chile as well!

The formidable and enigmatic trails carved by the Incas are now popular destinations that attract millions of visitors. Come and experience them for yourself and marvel at Peru’s ancient wonders. Enjoy both the calm of Cuzco and the bustle of Lima. If you are interested, our destination experts can also put together a Peru holiday package that includes a visit to the quieter beaches on Peru’s lesser-visited coast.

The incredible food is another factor that makes Peru tours unforgettable experiences. Peruvian cuisine is some of the finest on earth, and Lima in particular is known as one of the world’s best-kept gastronomical secrets! If fine dining is a personal requirement for a stellar vacation, look no further. We can book you a private Peruvian food tour before the word gets out! If you are looking for hands-on experiences, you can even book a cooking class and learn how to create Peruvian dishes at home.

Regardless of your vacation preferences, Peru is happy to accommodate. Enjoy adventure-packed days, relaxing outings in picturesque locales, or a perfect combination of both.

With all of these options (and more!) open to you, luxury Peru private tours are favored options for both new and experienced travelers. The country's considerable charms, impressive tourist infrastructure, and number of high-quality local travel agents are only a few of the reasons to make Peru your next vacation destination.

Peru Reviews Of Our Travellers

Lisa Q., November 2019

Fantastic trip! Johana planned this vacation perfectly and everything went exactly as planned. The best vacation I've ever had! Thanks to Johana!!!!!!!!!

Alisa L., November 2019

Johana organized a 3-week vacation in Ecuador and Peru for us. We had very good communication and everything looked perfect for our trip. Unfortunately, we had the bad luck to arrive to Ecuador when the riots started and most tourist attractions were not accessible. It was dangerous to be traveling. Johana was exceptional, she made sure we were safe, she was always in contact with us, we had to change the itinerary, she worked in the middle of the night to try to change our flights. We got to fly to the Galapagos which was not in our plan but we were happy to be there. All the transport was on time and we had a minibus with plenty of room for the 8 of us. In Peru, everything was as scheduled. The hotels were very good.
Now Ecuador is calm again and I would highly recommend Johanna and her agency.

Nicholas I didn’t get to meet but he called me when he was on his holiday to answer questions . Mily was Soo... Good !!! She organized our hole trip . She said to please allow her to come up with an itinerary with what we where wanting to do . I have her 3 major places we wanted to cross off our bucket list with only 1week to fit it in . Macchu Picchu, Death Road biking in La Paz and Uyuni Slat Flats in Bolovia. It was my 60th Birthday when we were on the Salt Flats and I was surprised by a special Surprise lunch with wine and a Birthday Cake . I looked around and asked who did this ? My wife and 5 adult children didn’t know anything about it . The people serving the lunch and wine and the champagne we had at sunset no one knew who organized it. I still need to message Mily . I’m sure it was her !!! Thank you Mily . Our guide Cesar in Peru was outstanding .He was so good ... He knew all the best sites and how to take the best photos. He became friends with all of us and we hope that one day he can visit us in our country. Mily was always checking to see that everything was all good. I haven’t meet Mily but I feel that I know her as I became to trust her during the many emails and whatsup messages we exchanged. When we got to La Paz Bolivia we were 2 hours delayed on our arrival. The guide and driver that Mily arranged to meet us and the Death Road biking guide and driver that Mily also arranged patiently waited for us to arrive. We weren’t going to have enough daylight to do our biking but the company still insisted that we go and try their best as we had already pre-paid or our tour . The biking guide was incredible he told a lot of stories that my sons really enjoyed and worked very hard to guide us down this death road which was a real adventure. We rode until dark which was 3/4 of the ride and we got in all the most important parts.
Our Guide in La Paz worked hard to get us to our hotel and airport so that we could get our flights to and from Uyuni . In La Paz there was political unrest and many protests in the streets which we felt safe with our guide and driver . In Uyuni we got 2 days and 1 night on the Salt Flats for pictures and a super fun 60th birthday that I will Never forget and many memories for my family.
Thank you Mily and the Trip Me team !!!

Lorena did a good job booking a complex trip on short notice. We concluded the final payment just days before our departure.
