Starting in Lima and ending in Cusco, the "Classic Peru" tour is a guided active and outdoor tour that takes 14 days. You will travel through Aguas Calientes, Cusco and Arequipa in Peru. "Classic Peru" is a small group tour which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Go beyond the astounding Machu Picchu on this adventure into Peru. Witness the awe-inspiring magic of the ancient Inca citadel and the natural and historic beauty that surrounds it. Get lost in the bustle of Lima, immerse yourself in island life (and pick up a word of Quechua or two) on Lake Titicaca, watch condors flying over the Colca Canyon and unwind in the Sacred Valley. Our tour of Peru goes deeper than the bucket-list sites to give you a real taste of this fascinating and diverse country.

Inti Raymi Festival - Join our special departure to catch the 'Festival of the Sun', a religious ceremony during the Inca Empire and now one of South America's largest pageants.

Stay on Lake Titicaca - Stay with locals at a homestay on one of the islands of the incredible, high-altitude lake.

Explore Cusco - Sip pisco sours after a day exploring the ancient capital city of the Incas.

Tick off Machu Picchu - Take the train to Aguas Calientes, the gateway to the world-renowned ancient site, and one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.
