Guided Cultural Tour of Peru

Lima, the capital of Peru, lies on the country's sparkling Pacific coast. Though its colonial center has been preserved throughout the ages, today it is a bustling metropolitan center known for its world famous gastronomical scene. As one of South America’s largest and oldest cities, it is home to not only various museums & cathedrals, but ancient indigenous ruins that trace the rich history of Peru’s evolving civilizations.

 

After enjoying the modern metropolis of Lima, we will follow the Incan trail to the city of Cuzco in the Peruvian Andes. The city of Cuzco was once the sacred capital of the Incan Empire, and is known today for its archaeological remains and Spanish colonial architecture.

 

After our time in the charming city of Cuzco, we will continue the Inca trail to Machu Pichu high in the Andes mountains of Peru.

Machu Picchu is an Incan citadel that sits high above the Urubamba River valley. Built in the 15th century, this renowned valley is known for its sophisticated dry-stone walls that fuse huge blocks of stone without the use of mortar. It’s intriguing buildings play on astronomical alignments and lush panoramic views. Its exact former use remains a mystery and today Machu Pichu is considered one of the seven new wonders of the world.
