  • Lima

Lima is the capital of Peru, the starting point for almost all trips within the country and a must-see spot on a tour to Peru. It is located by the Pacific Coast and provides all kinds of facilities for major cities. In the Colonial Era, it was the seat of the viceroyalty and thus became the most powerful city in South America. Nowadays, its foreign and native heritage coexist with its colonial buildings with the many archaeological sites (located in the south of the city, on the way to the Sacred City of Caral), and the beautiful Peruvian beaches. Treat yourself to seafood in this city that offers some of the best restaurants in South America. Miraflores is a great neighborhood to stay, lovely and safe with a view of the Pacific Ocean, offers parks and outdoor spaces, all sorts of restaurants and bars, entertainment, shopping, and more. For all these reasons and attractions, you cannot leave this city aside on your tours in Peru.

 

  • Machu Picchu

Located in the south of Perú with the Andes Mountains as background, you’ll find Machu Picchu. A city that exhibits magnificent palaces, elaborately constructed temples, and oddly flawless stone houses from the Inca Civilization. Only roughly 100 years after its construction, Machu Picchu was abandoned during the Spanish conquest and remained unchanged until the early twentieth century.  It currently attracts thousands of tourists every day and is without a doubt the most well-known archaeological site in South America. The hidden Inca Trail leads to the mysterious city. The trek or bus trip to the isolated region is an experience in itself.

 

  • Cuzco

Cuzco is one of the oldest cities in the country. Its name comes from “Q´osqo” which means “navel” in the Quechua language. This city was the Capital of the Tawantinsuyo Inca Empire and it’s the gateway to visit the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983, this colonial city is currently one of the most popular destinations in any Peru tour. The entire city, not just a given district or neighborhood, is an attraction itself with integrated history found throughout the city, from the striking street corners down to the sidewalks. Every single aspect of this city offers clues of a past golden era. Cuzco’s ancient walls and roads have been nicknamed “the birthplace of the world”.
