OVERVIEW

Let us take you on an unforgettable adventure through the fascinating Peruvian kingdom! From the ancient civilisation of the Incas and awe-inspiring Machu Pichu to the sprawling metropolis that is Lima. The second largest city in Peru is rich with beautiful architecture and landscape alike. Towering over the city, the volcano makes the perfect back drop as you depart for the mouth of the yawning Colca Canyon. Watch as the landscape shifts before your own eyes and Andean condors soar through the sky above. Once in Puno, you’ll be mesmerized by the famous Titicaca lake, mystically known among the natives for being the lake that gave birth to the Incas culture. Its quaint glistening waters filled with fascinating floating islands are a nautical must. Arriving at Cusco will seem like you’ve entered a time capsule. Known to the Incas as the “navel of the world”, the city boasts thriving Andean culture, Inca architecture and colonial treasures galore. Not to mention also being the starting point for the journey to the mighty Machu Picchu. The timeless citadel is one of the seven wonders of the world and will not fail to leave one speechless.
