3 ways this trip will excite and delight you…

  1. Skylodge — stunning views, a delicious lunch, and zip lining. Yes, it’s as cool as it sounds.
  2. Scenic train rides. There’s no rush this vacation, relish a journey that’s part of the experience
  3. A culinary class that will let you recreate a taste of Peru when you get back home.

What will make your friends jealous?

Treating yourselves to true excitement. Peru is an amazing destination, and I've designed this Signature Trip to reflect that. You'll see 'can't miss' sites, but you'll also enjoy lesser-known activities such as traditional dance on a scenic train, or crossing a 92 foot (28 m) straw bridge.

Our advice to visitors of Peru is…

Do indulge in ‘top activities’ like making the pilgrimage to Machu Picchu, but don't let that be the limit of your trip. Peru has much to offer –– from our history to our cuisine, and the mountains are just the beginning of the outdoor adventures awaiting you. This vacation, see all of Peru.
