    Southern Peru Trekking & Adventure with Unu Raymi
    5 - Excellent
    • Anonymous
    “I booked an 18 day trip with the local travel specialists in March 2022 and would recommend them wholeheartedly. My 18 day adventure around Southern Peru was fantastic - James and the team were incredibly professional, organised and helpful. From the start of the process, James helped me curate a flexible tailor-made tour at a very reasonable and competitive price. Before the trip, the team was in touch regularly to discuss and provide ideas for places to visit. During my visit to Peru, James was highly communicative, friendly and went to extra mile on numerous occasions and provided an exceptional service. I went on a number of hikes which were superb and very well organised. Overall, my tour was a stress-free once-in-a-lifetime experience and a perfect way to see one of the most beautiful countries. My full itinerary included: Lima, Paracas > Huacachina > Ica > Nazca > Arequipa > Puno and Lake Titicaca > Cusco > the Sacred Valley > Llactapata Inca trail > Machu Picchu > Ausangate and Rainbow Mountain trek > Cusco back to Lima.”
    BEST EXPERIENCE OF OUR LIFE
    5 - Excellent
    • Anonymous
    “This was the best tour that we have ever done before. We can highly recommend the experience to: the best of Machu Picchu, Cusco and Amazon in seven days. The places we went to, the ancient ruins we saw, the delicious food we had and the picturesque landscapes we experienced through the tour were all memorable. But what made this tour so outstanding and unique were our guides: Peter our Machu Picchu expert and Gris that showed us the other sites in Cusco. They were not only amazing tours guides, very knowledgable and funny, but they also helped us to capture these beautiful sites with pictures. thanks a lot for that.”
    Spectacular vacation, made possible by exploor peru!

    “We used this company to maximize our time in Peru and we are very happy that we did. Having had limited time, we wanted to do as much as possible in the span of a few days and this company allowed us to do just that. Erik and his team made everything extremely easy for us from the second we got off the plane to the time we needed to leave. Everything was pre arranged and there were no surprises. Erik, Pilar, Sol, Evy, Lillian, and all the drivers were so nice and willing to do anything to make our trip as perfect as possible. Would use this company without hesitation for any future vacations and highly recommend to anyone thinking of going to Peru!”

    Cusco - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

    Capital of the Inca Empire, a visit to Cusco transports you back to the mysterious ways of the ancient culture of Incas and invites you to explore the Sacred Valley and the irresistible Machu Picchu. As you take a tour of Cusco, you will see the Spanish Conquest has left its colonial influence on the city. Despite the historical conflict of Cusco, the city is a welcoming and comfortable base from which to explore the intriguing world of the Incas, and the people who still call Cusco home.

    Travel Highlights

    • La Catedral is a 16th century construction built atop an old Inca palace. It’s a great place to view some Colonial art.
    • Before you head out to Machu Picchu or other sites, visit the Museo Inca to gain some background knowledge on this ancient cosmic culture.
    • The Salinas or salt pans may not sound terribly exciting, but the sight of such an ancient practice brings into focus how much of Cusco still uses Inca traditions to this day.
    • Machu Picchu, the reason many people take a trip to Cusco, is a bucket-list activity like no other. The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is one of the most famous treks in the world.
    • The Moray terraces are an impressive display of Inca wisdom. Each with its own microclimate, it’s believed the terraces were used to experiment with crop growth.

    Travel Tips

    • Taking a picture with a local dressed in traditional Andean clothing will incur a fee.
    • Coca leaves is a natural way to combat altitude sickness but is not a substitute to medicine such as Diamox.
    • Cusco is very walkable, but go slow while you adjust to the altitude.
    • Like anywhere with a lot of tourists, there is crime in Cusco so take precautions.
    • If you plan to complete the Inca trail, make sure you have any necessary permits well in advance.
    • A Boleto Turistico grants you entrance to 16 attractions for one fee.
    • Rainy season is from December to March, but always pack layers no matter the month.
