WONDERS OF PERU OVERVIEW18 Days

This is a tour for those seeking adventure. You won’t want to pause for even a moment with all the wonders Peru has to offer; with the great Incan Empire, the towering Andes, the mystical Amazon and the City of the Kings (Lima), there are few countries that can contain such a diverse blend of history, culture, landscape and wildlife

Start in Lima, the former Spanish colonial centre of the New World and the current capital of Peru, adventure into the Amazon Rainforest, one of the most bio-diverse regions in the world. Monkeys, Alligators, giant river Otters, Sloths and the occasional Jaguar are all on the list of potential sightings. A visit to UNESCO World Heritage Site Machu Picchu will make for an incomparable day. Sand board and ride dune buggies at the oasis of Huacachina. Peru is waiting for the adventure-seeking backpacking traveler

Machu Picchu Trek Options: 

Option 1: Already included in your tour price is a one (1) day visit to Machu Picchu with our tour group with a bus and train to the top of Machu Picchu, admission to the site, and a bus and train back to Cusco. 

Option 2 (through 3rd party operator): For those that would like to do the 4-day/3-night trek up Machu Picchu, run by a separate company, you will need to contact us in order for us to REMOVE Option 1 from your invoice (deducting a total of $150 USD from your invoice.) You will be required to book a trek to the top of Machu Picchu, through a third party operator, which will cover the cost of admission to Machu Picchu, and arrange your own transportation back to Cusco afterwards. We will provide you with the date you need to depart on (below) to make the booking process as streamlined as possible. If the trek you book does not include return transportation to Cusco after Machu Picchu please let us know and we will book it on your behalf and only deduct $30 USD from your invoice to cover those costs as needed.

Important Information Regarding Flights:

We currently offer to include round-trip airfare departing from any location; if your location isn’t listed, select ‘other' during your sign-up according to your region, and include your requested departure city in the comments box. We offer to book flights on your behalf to provide a smooth trip for you, but you are more than welcome to book your own flights, in which case you would select a ‘land only’ tour.

The difference in price between the land only cost of the tour, and your package price for the round-trip flights + tour option, is your flight allowance. If the cost of your flight is more than the flight allowance, then that difference will be communicated to you prior to booking the flights, which will then be added to your invoice and booked only after receiving your confirmation. Over the period of the Chinese New Year and during the months of July, August and December, flights tend to increase in cost substantially, so there will most likely be an additional flight fee to fly during those times; however, please keep in mind that flights fees can occur at any time of the year because the aviation industry tends to have erratic pricing.

If booking a tour within 1 month of departure, and are requesting flights, please contact us ahead of time as we may not be able to book flights on your behalf in that timeframe, but will be able to offer you an alternative solution.

Please note that due to time zones and travel time, flight departures are normally 1 day prior to the trip start date.
