Peru

 

Our all inclusive approach

Our trips offer exceptional value for money featuring good quality, centrally located hotels and private transportation. We aim to incorporate as many inclusions as possible in the tour cost such as gear hire on treks, entrance and permit fees, transfers and most meals.

Authentic experiences

Whether you are trekking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, canoeing the waterways of the Amazon Rainforest, savouring the cuisines of Lima and Cusco or experiencing a traditional homestay on Lake Titicaca, our diverse range of active itineraries encapsulate the cultural heart of Peru. Our adventures take you off the beaten path to provide realistic insight into this corner of the world and the ways that its incredible geographic and cultural diversities fit together.

Experienced local guides

Our guides in the field are the real keys to our success, demonstrating a wealth of local knowledge and passion that they are eager to share with you. From climber Simon Yates of 'Touching the Void' to Javier Bello, one of the most experienced guides in the Andes, our team of experts ensure you receive the very best service as you gain insight into the unique Peruvian culture.

World firsts

We proudly pioneered the first commercial Inca Rivers Trek in Peru in 2004, showcasing a remote trail to the north of Machu Picchu. As a result, our knowledge of the region and logistics is second to none, ensuring your adventure is unforgettable.

Leaders in responsible travel

Responsible travel practice is at the heart of every program that we offer in Peru. When you book one of our adventures you're supporting true sustainability in the protection of local communities, natural environments and wildlife.

Expert leaders, risk assessments, quality inclusions and your financial security all come standard when you travel with us.

Please refer to our Travel Advisory page for updates on recent events, travel warnings and advice.

We strongly recommend that all clients take out travel insurance at the time of booking to cover against sickness, accident, loss of baggage, unexpected alterations to travel arrangements and travel disruption, emergency evacuation, cancellations, etc. Insurance information is enclosed with your pre-departure information.

We suggest that you consult your doctor, local government inoculation centre or a travel medical specialist in order to get the most current advice regarding vaccination requirements.

Money and valuables should always be stored safely when travelling. Keep your passport with you at all times and do not leave it in your main luggage. You will need it to change money and check into hotels. Where safety deposit boxes are available, we recommend that you use them. Keep jewellery and valuables to a minimum.
