Overview & Highlights
This comfortable group holiday whizzes you through Peru’s must-see highlights. Visit Lima on the Pacific coast, Cusco, Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley in the Andes. Superb landscapes and a mélange of cultural riches.
- Cusco: guided city tour and visit to Sacsayhuamán temple fortress
- Cusco: guided tour of the Sacred Valley of the Incas
- Machu Picchu: guided tour of the ruins
- Lake Titicaca: Uros Islands boat trip
- Lake Titicaca: guided excursion to Sillustani
On this 10 day group holiday you will visit all the ultimate highlights of Peru. Ruined temples and fortresses of the Inca Empire surround Cusco, once the heart of the Inca world and now a graceful homage to Spanish colonial architecture. Beyond the ancient terraced hillsides of the Sacred Valley of the Incas lies the archaeological site at Machu Picchu, a must-see on the world’s scale. Finally, no trip to Peru is complete without a scenic trip across the wind-buffeted plains of the altiplano to the shores of the world’s highest navigable lake, Titicaca, a sacred body of water rimmed by snow-mantled Andean mountains.
The welcoming Peruvian people, combined with the country's rich culture and diverse and beautiful scenery, make Peru an easy place to fall in love with: the Inca temples of Machu Picchu; Cusco and the Sacred Valley; Lake Titicaca's vast expanse of shimmering sapphire waters are its top sights.
