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.

Janet Kaul, June 2017

Very safe and friendly country. Everyone seemed genuinely interested in making our stay a success. Highly recommend using trip.me for your trip to all of the best Peru has to offer!

Michael Quinn Philley, May 2017

We cannot say enough about Nicholas's expertise and attention to detail in planning our trip to Peru. It was truly the journey of a lifetime! Every step of the way from Lima to Arequipa and Colca Canyon, to Cusco and the Sacred Valley, and to the mystical sanctuary of Machu Picchu, we enjoyed wonderful accommodations, superb local guides, and delightful Peruvian meals. Nicholas arranged our tour as a culinary adventure in addition to everything else, and we learned so much about food preparation and cooking using traditional ingredients and methods. The local markets were fascinating; we've never seen such overwhelming diversity of indigenous agricultural products!
Julio, our local guide in Cusco and the Sacred Valley, was absolutely terrific! His knowledge and joyful appreciation of Andean culture and history was simply contagious and helped to make our experiences in the highlands unforgettable. And we don't want to forget to mention our local guide at Colca Canyon, Elfer, who was also so knowledgable and personable. Our takeaway from booking our trip with Nicholas and the local agency is that they offer the best in matching clients with local guides and services.
Thank you, Nicholas, Julio, Elfer, and all the lovely people of Peru who welcomed us and made our journey so rewarding!

The trip was amazing. Very well planned and took me to wonderful places. Nicholas was very nice and well informed. He was very helpful both before and during the trip and took great care of me having a good time.

Sharon Joan Barnes, April 2017

Our recent trip and experience to Peru was absolutely fantastic. Tati had customised a holiday to suit us. Tati was helpful and quick to respond to any questions. Overall we could not fault our experience and service provided.

Spencer Jaretzke, April 2017

This trip was absolutely incredibly amazing. The customisation for our trip that we did was nothing short of remarkable. Peruvian Sol Taylor makes every one of the trips in your experiences to exactly the way you like it. On a trip we were in the city we went to the Amazon jungle we went to the Andes Mountains we went to the desert we went to the ocean we got to see all of Peru that we were hoping to. I had very high expectations for this trip and they not only met but far exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend the local agency if you're ever going to travel Peru because they can customize your trip to however you like and it feels like it's a personal touch. Mucho gracias Nicolas and Diego and all of the staff and guides. Shout out to Julio as well.
