The trip.me way of travel
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.
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!
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.
I cannot recommend this service or Nicholas in particular highly enough. We had a group of seven travelers, several of whom were quite nervous about traveling to Peru. Nicholas was always very responsive to our emails and thoughtful. Even though some of the questions posed were, even in my opinion, a bit silly, he never rushed us or made us feel like we were wasting his time. When I took a bit of extra time to get back to him so I could survey the rest of the group about our options, he was patient. When we asked for the trip to be altered, he was able to quickly come up with alternatives (for example, we asked to have a driver take us from Cusco to Puno instead of a plane; he organized several stops along the way which made the long drive seem a lot shorter).
Once we arrived, we had the time of our lives. Every single aspect was taken care of. Our guide in Cusco was an angel! Julio made history come to life. He also introduced the culture to us in a way that was fun and relatable. He was patient with slow hikers on Huayna Picchu and always had a ready smile. He never seemed stressed, even on long days. (Seriously, I would highly recommend requesting Julio. I have never had such a fantastic tour guide in my life.)
In conclusion, the planning and execution of this trip was absolutely flawless and all the credit goes to Nicholas and trip.me. We're already considering requesting them for another trip next year.
Edyy was extremely helpful & obliging while I was planning my trip to Machu Picchu. Everything went smoothly, representatives were on time, friendly & helpful. It was a pleasure to have someone to rely on for transfers & information.
My contact person was Isabel. She was a great help in setting up the tour and clearing several questions. They arranged a driver and a tour guide. However, it can be handled by one person and cut the price for the customer. Also, they didn't provide water during the ride and lunch and said they cost extra. I know it is a minor issue but it needs to be addressed.Read More Read More Less
