What's a Peru Tour?
Peru tours are prepackaged trips with a set itinerary and dedicated tour manager. Many people who want to take a Peru vacation want to avoid all the planning and logistics involved in a big week or two week foreign trip abroad and are looking to save money by doing it all in a package instead of piecing things together at full price. The trip is led by a tour director who will take care of all the services from beginning to the end of your vacation. Your tour director connects you with local tour guides who will have a lot of knowledge on the specific cities you explore. Typically, hotels, transportation throughout your trip, some meals and sightseeing are arranged and included with the price of your Peru tour.
A large, mountainous country on South America's Pacific coast, Peru offers visitors the opportunity to visit beautiful beaches, panoramic mountains and tropical jungle. Most international travelers to Peru make at least three key stops to Lima, Cuzco and Machu Picchu. Peru tours typically begin and end in Lima, in a scenic valley between the ocean and the desert. Its main square, Plaza de Armas, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, complete with paths, gardens and an elegant bronze fountain. The monastery and church of San Francisco in colonial Lima is famous for its catacombs, filled with bones from an estimated 70,000 human burials. Don't miss dining on delicious seafood while in Lima, such as ceviche, made of marinated fish.
What's Included on a Peru Tour?
Generally, a Peru tour will include as many services as possible, giving you less to worry about. Usually included on your Peru tour are: transportation (getting from place to place while on tour), accommodations, most meals, and the services of a dedicated tour director. As per the itinerary, certain sightseeing opportunities are also included: tickets to special VIP access to the most famous landmarks, skip the lines, and when available, access to a personal local guide for expert commentary.
For many on a Peru vacation, the Inca city of Machu Picchu is the highlight of their visit. Tour the archeological site with its myriad staircases, terraces, temples, palaces, towers and fountains, and marvel at the fascinating structures that were buried beneath jungle vegetation for centuries, only revealed to the western world in the early twentieth century. There are many hiking options here, but one of the least strenuous is a walk out to the pedestrian Inca Drawbridge along a cliff-hugging trail.
