There are many well-preserved vestiges of the pre-Columbian Incas and the heritage of colonial Spain, yet is it also a modern country, rapidly getting up to date in terms of infrastructure and technology. Nowadays, in addition to a highlights of Peru holiday, we can bring you a luxury holidays in Peru as well as good value budget holidays in Peru and even more adventurous options and visits to off the beaten track corners of the country.
What to see? Top highlight of anyone’s list will be Machu Picchu, the Lost City of Peru, on a hilltop in the sub-tropical Andean foothills. But we can also take you to ruins of other Inca citadels nearby in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, close to Cusco, Peru’s colonial city and Inca capital and we suggest you visit the ruins of older Peruvian cultures: Kuelap in the central and northern sierras of the Andes.
