While Machu Picchu is clearly one of South America's most popular ancient monuments, as you will discover on our range of tours, that's not all Peru has to offer.
For travellers looking for outdoor adventure, Indiana Jones style exploration and colourful cultures, Peru is just the place. Brimming with archaeological treasures from Machu Picchu to the little-visited sites of the north, Peru also claims a sizeable portion of the Amazon rain forest, a must for nature lovers with its unique biodiversity of wild animals, towering trees and vivid plants. History echoes through the cities of Lima and Cuzco, filled with world-class museums, fine colonial buildings and ancient ruins. There's plenty more to this fascinating country including one of the world’s deepest canyons in the Colca Valley, Lake Titicaca where indigenous cultures still live in the ways of old and the mysterious geoglyphs at Nazca too. Discover Peru's top spots on our adventure-style group tours or create your own bespoke journey with our tailor-made service.

Sebastian was very knowledgable and enthusiastic, but it would have been nice to have a bit of time on our own - particularly to have a meal together on our own in the Amazon. Jose was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Cusco and the Incas. All parts of the tour were very well organised and we felt we were in safe hands and had no problems at all.”
An amazing trip. Far exceeded our expectations. Everything was so well organised and when there were small hitches they were dealt with speedily and efficiently . Our guide Alina was amazing, so relaxed but super efficient in a totally non threatening way. She held together a disparate group of people in a manner that I'm sure made everyone feel safe , valued, respected. She was also great fun. An exceptional young woman. The only small let down was the 2 nd hostel in Bolivia which I felt fell well under standards experienced on the rest of the tour. No real washing facilities other than when camping isn't really acceptable in this day and age. But a very minor point. Otherwise FANTASTIC..”
Was very impressed with the organization of this trip. Darwing was great and knowledgable. The Inca trail was amazing. Our 2 guides - Ronald Ccana Sotalero and Guillermo Sana Cusi went above and beyond to make this a once in a lifetime excursion. They were excellent on the trail. The equipment, food - just everything - exceeded my expectations. If it wasn't for the guides encouragement and help I don't think my friend would have made it. Can not say enough about them and the Peruvian Sacred tour group.”

Recent Travel Articles on Peru
Mighty and mysterious, Machu Picchu was, for centuries, an abandoned citadel known only to the local peasants. In 1911, however, this all changed when Hiram Bingham, an American archaeologist, stumbled upon it and spread the news of his discovery around the world, driving curious explorers to Peru to witness its magnificence firsthand. To this day, the purpose of this hilltop complex remains a matter of debate, with theorists claiming it could have been a royal retreat or a monument to nature, among other possibilities.
Highlights of our Peru tours
Peru's crowning glory has to be the impressive Inca citadel of Machu Picchu and you'll find this ancient wonder on all of our Peru group tours. But alongside this ruined city in the clouds, Peru is also home to mysterious geoglyphs, expansive lakes, colourful indigenous cultures and thriving cities that also feature on our tours. Here's some of the highlights you can expect to experience.
Trek the 4-day Inca Trail or take the scenic train to this recently voted New World Wonder and enjoy a guided tour of UNESCO-listed Machu Picchu for temple ruins and more.
