Things to do in Peru
Peru Amazon Tour
The Amazon Rainforest is the world’s largest rainforest with the highest level of biodiversity. Plunge into a river and jungle Amazon safari in Iquitos with a knowledgeable guide and you may see sloth, river dolphin, howler monkey, harpy eagle and a host of other fabulous but shy wildlife.
This desert oasis and adventure playground is the jumping off point for flights over the Nazca Lines, boat trips to see Humboldt penguins and sea lions and exciting sandboarding and sand buggy tours deep into the desert.
Authentic People of Peru
Experience the hospitality and colorful culture of the Peruvian people. Like these girls at Mirador Taray above the Scared Valley, they are proud of their heritage and delighted to share their local traditions with you.
Lima, perched on the Pacific Coast is one of the largest cities in South America. Paraglide from the Miraflores Cliffs, explore museums and ancient architecture and enjoy dining out or a night of traditional Peruvian or Criollo music.
PERUVIAN FOOD Tour
A Peruvian food tour is a delightful mix of traditional dishes drawn from Peru’s rich larder of seafood, grains and hearty meat dishes (yes, including Guinea Pig!) as well as nuevo comida, brought to international attention by master Peruvian chefs such as Gaston Acurio and Pedro Miguel Schiaffino.
Písac is a Peruvian village, that sits at the edge of the Vilcanota River in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. It hosts a large market every Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday – great for people-watching and getting a feel for the local way of life.
Train to the Past
The Amazon River kayak tour was unforgettable. Thanks to our eagle-eyed guide we saw lots of wildlife that we would have never seen on our own.
Thank you for our amazing honeymoon.Jenna K
Trekking through this stunning land on horseback was almost a spiritual experience for me. I don’t think I have ever felt so refreshed after a vacation and this was no doubt helped by your faultless travel arrangements.KB
Without exception, every person we met in Peru was delightful. Their smiles and kindness shine out of every holiday snap we took.
The cooking class was a highlight. Thank you for fitting that in at the very last minute.Kerry L
Meet Peru’s Best Travel Agents and Local Guides
It is possible to arrange your own tour of Peru, but in reality, an expert travel agent can make bookings and arrange contacts for you that you would be unlikely to find on your own.
Peru is a large country, brimming with history and ancient cultures. It is home to vast open spaces, mountain ranges, desert and 350,000 square miles of Amazon jungle.
Experiencing the essence of this untamed land is best done away from hordes of package tourists.
The best travel agents know the hidden heart of Peru. They can arrange dinner for you at in the home of a mountain family or in the best restaurants in Lima.
For top travel agents, authenticity is the key. They will steer you clear of overly commercial tourist traps and instead, guide you towards encounters with local craftsmen, business owners and private citizens to further your understanding of Peru and provide you with an experience that you will never forget.
But finding a fantastic travel agent is not as easy as it sounds. Far too many take a cookie-cutter approach, organizing the same tours day after day without any thought to the preferences or passions of the people who they are serving.
At Trekerie, we have done this research on your behalf. We have pre-selected the top travel agents in Peru, those that have a track record of excellence and innovation. Without exception, they receive glowing reviews (from often very demanding clients) and have numerous awards for their superior service.
Access to these agents is free, easy – and fun. All you have to do is fill in a very short questionnaire about your ideal Peru vacation and we request our agents to provide competing travel plans, including activities, accommodation and budget outlines.
You get to choose the winner! Select the itinerary you prefer and then you can proceed with your chosen agent to plan an amazing vacation.
