There’s no better organized tour of Peru than the Peru Classic Tour. It is aimed to help travelers discover the heart and soul of Peru, while visiting many of the country’s cultural jewels: Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca, and the Nazca Lines. The tour does more than that, though. It also reveals the splendors of the upper Atacama Desert in Ica, the starkly beautiful lagoon in the Huacachina Oasis, the breathtaking Colca Canyon, as well as the city of Arequipa with its colonial roots. We also explore the more hidden sides of modern-day life as it’s lived in contemporary Lima. The city may be modern, but it has a distinctive colonial style, too, and is home to Museo Larco and its many ancient Peruvian treasures. We take one large step back in time, also, and visit Amantani, Taquile, and the Uros islands of Lake Titicaca – to see if ancient traditions can co-exist with modern-day life … and if so, how!read more about this organized tour >>

Peru Express, an organized tour, was developed for those world travelers who want to experience not only the essence of this Andean country but who also seek to unravel and understand the many mysteries of Inca culture. We begin in the city of Arequipa, steeped in colonial history, sporting an architecture rendered in a whitish-coloured volcanic stone, and home to a lovely Plaza de Armas and two incredible, nearby volcanoes: Misti and Chachani. Beyond Arequipa, the tour continues with a visit to one of the world’s deepest canyons, the Colca Canyon. Here, in good numbers, Andean condors soar up and down the canyon, hugging the rim and giving us magnificent views and photos. Lake Titicaca is also on our agenda; we cruise the amazing, crystalline waters of the world’s highest (navigable) lake. We visit both Taquile and Uros Islands, two unusual spots on earth where very, very old traditions are embraced alongside everyday modern life. Between Lake Titicaca and Cusco, we follow (symbolically) the path taken by Manco Capac, the founder of Cusco. The absolute center of Inca culture, Cusco is the historical middle ground between Spanish and Inca culture. In describing the beauty and tranquility of the Sacred Valley of the Incas, amazing is perhaps an understatement; here, we find the fortresses of Pisaq and Ollantaytambo. They are perhaps the best surviving works of architecture in the time before conquistadores arrived. Finally, we enter Machu Picchu. Here, in person, feeling the sun and breathing the air, it is easy to sense the legends surrounding Inca culture – for this is, in fact, one of the new Seven Wonders of the World!read more about this organized tour >>

The Lima–Cusco Tour is a private organized tour which captures the essence of the Inca world as well as its fascinating capital, Cusco. First off, though, we make a brief stop in Lima to sample the local cuisine, visit the exclusive Museo de Oro, and the archaeological site of Pachacamac. Further on, we encounter the beauty of the Sacred Valley of the Incas, where the Pisaq and Ollantaytambo fortresses stand and act as wonderful examples of the architecture at that time, before the arrival of Spanish conquistadores. Later, we tour the Maras salt mines and the agricultural centre in Moray in our quest to uncover and understand the mysteries of this lost yet well-refined civilization. Later, in an off-the-beaten-path side trip, we visit the Incan Wiracocha Temple, the rather sophisticated irrigation system built by the Inca in Tipon; Pikillaqta, perhaps the most important cultural centre of the Wari civilization; and lastly, the distinctive beauty of the Andahuaylillas church. Finally, Machu Picchu welcomes us with its larger-than-life presence – and we are free to re-live the legend of the Inca, and to wander through and experience one of the new Seven Wonders of the World!read more about this organized tour >>

The absolute immensity of the Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia and the unrivaled depth of the Colca Canyon in Peru are astonishing. Too, we explore the lost world of the Incas in ancient Cusco and world-famous Machu Picchu.
