Tour Details

This two week tour of Peru includes the country’s most popular destinations.  These destinations include Lima, Cusco, Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca, Arequipa, Colca Canyon and the Nazca Lines. Your tour begins in Lima with a city tour of Peru’s capital.  Lima recently is famous for being number one in the world culinary destination. Then continue in altitude to the lovely historic Cusco.   Descend for breathtaking Machu Picchu and spend time in this magical place.  Next you will be flying to Lake Titicaca, the world’s highest navigable lake. Your tour continues onward to Arequipa and the Colca Canyon before making a final stop in Nazca and Paracas before returning to Lima.

Peruvian authorities have placed restrictions on the visitation of Machu Picchu, the lost Incan ruins. They did this out of respect for UNESCO recommendations and this sacred site.  Currently only 2,500 people daily will be allowed to visit the ruins. While these new restrictions are great for the preservation of the ruins. They may cause some difficulties in your ability to visit them, so we recommend booking with plenty of notice.

We can customize this trip to fit your individual travel dates and any specific requests. Your travel consultant will prepare a customized itinerary for you.

Country Notes:

Peru:

A valid passport is required to travel and should have at least 6 months’ validity after your return home. You should have at least 2 blank pages per country that you are visiting. If your passport does not meet this requirement at the time of departure, you can be denied boarding for your international flight and may consequently incur additional expenses. You do not need a visa to enter Peru as a tourist with a US passport. However, we always recommend that you double check this for last minute changes with your local consulate.

Value Added Tax (IGV) Exemption: All non-resident foreign tourists in Peru who remain in the country less than 60 days (not to exceed 90 days in a calendar year) are exempt from paying the IGV, which is only for residents of Peru. Yampu does not include the 18% tax in our quoted rates. Note that when checking in at each hotel, you can expect to present your passport and the Andean Migration Card (TAM) stamped with your date of entrance into Peru. If your stay in Peru has exceeded 60 days, you will be counted as a resident and you will not be exempt from the IGV. In this case, you will be required to pay this tax for all hotels and services booked. Please let your Yampu Consultant know immediately if you or a member of your party may be ineligible for this exemption so that we may make the appropriate payment arrangements in advance

During your tour you will be visiting high altitude areas. Travelers with medical conditions, such as heart disease, lung disease, high blood pressure, sickle cell disease, or women who may be pregnant, should be advised to consult a physician familiar with high-altitude medical issues before traveling to high altitude areas. For up to date information on recommended and required vaccinations and general health travel tips for Peru please visit the CDC Website, then use the drop down menu to select Peru. Please consult with your physician for clarification or concerns regarding recommended or required vaccinations.

The central buildings were erected with the polished stone works of the Cusco Imperial style, though the site was probably occupied well before the Incas started their expansion. It was associated with the earth cult revolving around the coca leaf, which was a privilege of the Inca royal family and priests. Enjoy lunch at the Sanctuary Lodge, at the entrance of the ruins, before returning to the hotel at at leisure. In the evening, enjoy a wonderful dinner at the hotel or in the town of Aguas Calientes.

All and all it was wonderful and would recommend you

The trip was great and all of the Yampu people met us on time and were there for every aspect of the trip. No flight delays at all and the airport transfers were really easy. Peru was wonderful and we have a few hundred pictures. Weather was great and it only rained for about an hour the entire time. Of course that one hour was when we were hiking on the Inca trail but then it turned sunny. We loved our guide in Cusco and on the Inca trail. He was great and would suggest you reserve him as often as you can. According to him, we have the record of doing the 6-7 hour Inca trail one day hike in 4 hours and 10 minutes. In hindsight he said we could have probably done the entire 3 day hike in one day. So in the future if you have anyone wanting to really push it and get up really early, they can probably hike more of the trail. It was really fun. Our guide in Puna was nice and full of history as the one in Cusco. Our guide in Lima was knowledgeable about the history of Peru. The river cruise (Aria) was nice and there were only 16 people on board so everyone became friends. The general feedback of the group was that there was a bit too much down time. The group was fairly active and on the younger side so wanted more activities. We saw quite a few animals but it being the dry season and hit or miss with animals, we knew it would be a crap shoot. The guides on the ship were excellent and the food was very good (not amazing but above average). But we averaged 4-5 hours a day on the skiffs so I would let people know that there is a lot of time spent sitting and looking and looking. I am glad we did it and the visit to the jungle village was quite interesting. Who knew you could have 4 kids by the age of 17? All in all we loved Peru and it was a very different trip for us. The altitude did affect Pam way more than me especially at the Lake. All and all it was wonderful and would recommend you. Thanks for putting this together for us.

Had the Most unbelievable time.

Had the Most unbelievable time. The trek was just awesome. Really hard in parts, but mostly just breathtaking. My worst nightmare was realized when I was introduced to the group of trekkers- 4, 20 something marathon runners. There was only 5 of us in the trek so there was nowhere to hide. Having said that, I didn’t hold them up too much. We were always first into camp, and Hector our guide did have to slow us down at times to let the porters set up tents etc. Everything was just great the food, knowledge of our guide, and we had 11 porters for the 5 of us. So thank you for your expertise in organizing this for me. The rest of south-america was equally as amazing, and will be going back next year with the Family, so will be in contact. Thanks to my Transfer guide who was just amazing, and helped me re-book the flights and get me to Cusco on time. All the transfers were just perfect, and so relieving to have things work smoothly, when you don’t speak the language. Thanks again for all your help. Everything worked like clock work.

Machu Picchu is just an amazing structure

Our holiday has started off really nicely so far – lovely hotels, good guides and well organized – thanks to you and your team! Machu Picchu is just an amazing structure, and we were pleased that the kids managed to walk the entire lower trail without too much fussing! The guide was thankfully patient, and I think that the attraction of the lamas at the end helped them to incentivise them to get to that point. Boy, the 28 hour journey home was arduous! It’s so wonderful to be home, though. Thank you soooo much again for making the trip so fantastic and memorable. We’d definitely recommend you to our friends who wish to make the sojourn. A few have already expressed their interest.
