"Peru is the South America that you’ve always imagined."

Escorted Tours and Holidays in Peru

Whether you’re trekking the Inca trail, admiring the ruins of Machu Picchu or exploring the wild Amazon jungle, Peru is a magical and exciting place to be. It’s full to the brim with attractions and places to discover, and travelling in Peru is most definitely a fascinating and memorable experience. When you book a an escorted holiday tour of Peru holiday or, prepare to fall in love with regions full of culture, gorgeous beaches, tropical jungle, lush mountain valleys and a long list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Peru is the South America you’ve always imagined and a true bucket-list destination, which explains why there are so many holidays and escorted tours to choose from. Tour types include active, cultural, foodie, cycling, wildlife, history, camping and walking, as well as festivals, scenic and adventure tours.

Machu Picchu is right at the top of most people’s must-do list, and for good reason. Set atop a mountain in the Andes, the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu is shrouded by mist and surrounded by temples and vegetation. It’s in an extraordinarily beautiful setting and stands 2,430 metres above sea-level, right in the middle of a tropical mountain forest. Take the easy route and travel to Machu Picchu by rail or trek the Inca Trail on a 4-day guided tour to explore this wondrous lost city. Machu Picchu is so compelling and it is one of South America’s most visited destinations. 

Another popular destination is Peru is Cusco, the captivating former capital of the Incan empire. On an escorted tour, you can wander its cobblestone streets, see colonial period architecture, explore the many pretty neighbourhoods and drink some of the best coffee you’ve ever tasted. You may also want to visit Lima, Peru’s capital and largest city, home to ancient Incan archaeological sites, opulent palaces, fantastic shopping and world-class food. The Peruvian capital offers something for every traveller and is a city you should visit at least once in your lifetime as it is filled with rich history and culture.

If you want to learn more about the birthplace of the Inca civilization, choose an escorted tour that takes you to Lake Titicaca, which is located in the Andes between Peru and Bolivia. Lake Titicaca is the largest freshwater lake in South America and the highest navigable lake in the world. It’s the unique cultures that live on the lake that draw so many visitors to its waters, as well as the friendly islanders who love nothing more than sharing their traditions and crafts with tourists. Lake Titicaca is an iconic destination unlike anywhere else on the planet, so it makes perfect sense to pick an escorted tour itinerary that includes a trip to this stunning area of the world.

Many visitors to Peru opt to visit Colca Canyon, one of the world’s deepest canyons located in a region that boasts astounding scenery. Home to great Andean condors, Colca Canyon is a fabulous place to go if you enjoy hiking or sightseeing, and trust us when we say a Coca Canyon trek or an escorted sightseeing tour can be an amazing experience.

If you like the idea of visiting a rainforest on your Peru holiday or escorted tour, then a visit to the Amazon Jungle is a must. The Amazon Jungle covers nearly two-thirds of the country, so you’re going to need to do some research and you’ll want to do this trip with a tour guide. The Jungle region is an incredible place to visit for breathtaking scenery, wildlife opportunities and adventure tours, and there are two main gateways to the Amazon Jungle, which are Puerto Maldonado in the south and Iquitos in the north.
