Start and end in Lima, the "Best Of Peru" trip is a guided trekking and hiking tour that takes 16 days. You will travel through Ollantaytambo, Wiñay Wayna, Pakaymayu and 6 other destinations in Peru. "Best Of Peru" is a small group trip which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Trek the Inca Trail with journeys to the Amazon & Lake Titicaca. Peru offers so much variety and this itinerary combines it all. From colonial Lima, we fly across the Andes to our Amazon jungle lodge and with our naturalist guides explore this diverse environment. While in Cusco and the Sacred Valley we wander some of South America's best markets and discover a variety of Spanish and Inca heritage. The discovery of Machu Picchu in 1911 revealed an incredible Inca architectural masterpiece, and this startling find provides a grand finale to our trek along the Inca Trail. On the trail, we ascend from the jungle to the snow capped Andean peaks to complete our spectacular approach to Machu Picchu. Travelling onto Lake Titicaca, we visit the Uros Indians who live on floating reed islands and enjoy a night in a homestay on an island before returning to Lima.
