Join us on a holiday to Peru

Take one of our escorted Peru tours and immerse yourself in an enchanting nation where mysterious ruins, wild landscapes and ancient legends come to life in the colourful colonial capital streets of Lima, the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu, and the terraces and rocky gorges of the Sacred Valley.

Follow the ancient footpaths to the lost city of Machu Picchu and catch your breath as you witness one of the modern Seven Wonders of the World. Take in the colourful energy of colonial Lima, Peru’s cultural, culinary and vibrantly modern capital. Head to the world’s deepest canyons at Colca where Condors soar and take in the rarefied air of Lake Titicaca, the birthplace of Inca mythology and the capital of Peruvian folklore.

Marvel at the brilliant effect of Arequipa's pearly white colonial architecture. Resting at the feet of three volcanoes, this White City dazzles with its unique beauty and charm. Travel back to the time of the Incas and their Spanish conquerors in the magical city of Cusco, the capital of the Inca civilisation.

Delve into the magic of Peru and discover the vast cultural riches that hide behind the shadow of the Machu Picchu. Rich with echoes of its Incan history, the Sacred Valley is full of authentic Peruvian treasures. Witness the ways in which the locals have kept their traditional crafts and ways of life alive as much as possible.

Take one of our escorted tours to Peru and see the magic of this enchanting nation be brought to life by one of our expert guides.

  • No, British tourists do not need a visa to enter Peru. Your passport should be valid for six months from your entry date into the country though.

  • In Peru they use the Sol, which has a symbol of S/. For the latest exchange rates, please see www.xe.com.

  • High-end travel in Peru can be expensive. However, it is easily possible to visit the country on a budget, therefore, Peru is considered a cheap country to visit.

  • Spanish is the official language of Peru. However, English is widely spoken, particularly in touristy areas. Below are a few useful phrases in Spanish:

                Hello – hola

                Goodbye – adiós

                Thank you – gracias

                Please – por favor

                Do you speak English? – habla usted Inglês?

  • The best time to visit Peru is during the dry season, which is between May and October. During this time, the weather is sunny during the day, with bright blue skies and chilly nights in the Andes Mountains.

  • Peruvian food reflects the country’s diverse geography, incorporating plenty of fresh ingredients, and has become a popular global cuisine in recent years. Chicken and fish are popular in Peru, as are grains, especially quinoa, and pepper and potatoes. Ceviche, a dish of cold fish marinated in lime juice, onion and chilies, is very popular, as is lomo saltado, stir-fried beef served with chips. 

  • Peru is famous for its Inca ruins, stunning natural beauty and its interesting, historical cities. Peru’s most popular attraction is, without doubt, the ‘lost’ Inca city of Machu Picchu, located in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Lake Titicaca is also a popular tourist destination. Lima, Peru’s capital, along with Cusco and Arequipa are the country’s most popular cities.
