The Best of Peru tour starts and ends in Lima. The Best of Peru is a trekking tour that takes 16 days taking you through Lima, Peru and other destinations in Peru.

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.

“We cannot recommend this trip more highly. It provided us with a truly memorable combination of South American experiences; the Amazon Rain forest ecology with our lovely guide
Sol, the Inca ruins of Cusco (and its chocolate museum!) the fascinating sacred Valley and 4 amazing days trekking under canvas with Henry up the Trail to reach our iconic destination, Machu Picchu. Then finally the high lake of Titicaca in a local farmers homestay (Peruvian hat comes in handy as no central heating or hot water but still superb!) on an island there. We also enjoyed some Peruvian cuisine worthy of Masterchef. All the staff could not have been kinder or more
professional in their assistance: the hotels were well chosen and with just one nights exception, provided us with excellent accommodation. We are now planning our return to the continent next year.”

“We have just returned from the Best of Peru tour. We would highly recommend it for the variety of settings: Amazon jungle, Macchu Picchu trek and islands in Lake Titicaca. The tour was excellently led by a variety of guides but the highlight was definitely the impossibly beautiful and challenging Inca Trail. The whole team of guides (Jeiko and Hector) and chefs and porters were so supportive and encouraging that it turned into an amazingly spiritual and satisfying experience. Hard to get permits now so book early and get training!”
