Peru for the wild at heart. Tune into Lima’s lowdown on a guided walking tour, then do the same in Cusco before hitting the Inca Trail. Explore Ollantaytambo, summit Dead Woman’s Pass and catch Machu Picchu at sunrise. Then find out what’s creeping and crawling about the Amazon.
Your first priority should be ordering a plate of fried cuy (guinea pig). Peruvians eat around 65 million of the critters each year. Cusco’s main cathedral even has a version of the Last Supper showing Christ and his disciples dining on one.
- This tour gives you tonnes of time in Cusco where you can dig into the archaeological awesomeness of this ancient capital (please don't dig at the archaeological sites)
- Whether you trek the classic Inca Trail, the Inca Quarry Trail or take the scenic train route, trust us, this is one classic adventure that'll make all you left at home jealous
- Although the Classic Inca Trail is hard work, the rewards are incredible. Imagine walking in the footsteps of the ancient Inca and being treated to wowza views of Machu Picchu at the end
