Amazing Peaks and Majestic Ruins

16 Day Peru Itinerary

The service delivered over the 16 days was second to none, every pickup was on time, and all connections made. All hotels selected, for our stay were very good with friendly, helpful staff.

Exploring Peru in depth…

With over two weeks of vacation, we wanted to explore Peru in depth! My partner and I were excited to explore the different terrains and also visit the iconic destination — Machu Picchu. Prior to that, we visited the Sacred Valley. It was a great day out with an extra stop at a wildlife center, a wonderful way to to see several Inca sites and a good precursor to Machu Picchu itself.

Is it worth the hike? Totally!

The 2-day Colca Canyon adventure was a long tour but well worth it. Visiting the highland plateaus of Peru was fantastic. The guides stopped when requested, and included much-needed breaks at cafes. The height of the trip topped 15.7 km (9.8 mi), with stunning views of the volcanoes. Chivay was a really nice little town and worth walking around the market. Our guide took us around explaining the various fruits and vegetables, and the coffee shop on the corner of the square was one of the few places that sold proper Peruvian coffee.

The ocean wildlife amazed us…

The Ballestas Islands was a good excursion to see this archipelago's famous (both in Peru and Ecuador) nesting birds leave the island every morning. We even got to see the Humboldt penguins! During our time at Paracas, we stayed at San Augustin. We had lovely views over the sea and facing the fishing fleet of Paracas. We walked to and from the port easily.
