The Classic Peru trip starts in Lima and ends in Cusco. It is an active and outdoor tour that takes 14 days taking you through Lima, Cusco, Sacred Valley and 5 other destinations in Peru. Classic Peru is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

The moment when you catch your first glimpse of the awe-inspiring Machu Picchu is simply unforgettable, and for many this is the reason to visit Peru. But there is so much more to this diverse country. Spend time with the locals during a homestay at Lake Titicaca, watch condors wheeling over the Colca Canyon and unwind in the tranquil sacred valley on this journey through ancient lands. We have planned one departure to coincide with the Inti Raymi celebrations in Cusco. The 'Festival of the Sun' was a religious ceremony during the Inca Empire, and is now one of South America's largest pageants. Lake Titicaca - Enjoy local hospitality in a homestay on one of the islands of this incredible high altitude lake Cusco - Sip pisco sours after a day exploring the ancient capital city of the Incas Machu Picchu - Travel by train to Aguas Calientes, the gateway to this impressive ancient site, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World
