Activity Level:

While there is not a lot of strenuous "hiking" on this tour, there is some "climbing" of tall steps and walking on uneven surfaces that may cause concern to some. 

Peru is a country of great civilizations that has left its mark over the ages. We invite you to come with expert tour leaders, Dr. Roger and Lyn Manning, to discover it for yourself!

We start our adventure the minute we arrive into Lima as we head south to the vast Atacama Desert, the driest in the world, to ride and sandboard on the dunes at Huacachina.  We then head north to the small coastal town of Paracas.  If you’re looking for nature, our visit, by boat, to the Ballestas Islands, is a paradise of marine biodiversity.  The tour continues the route to Cusco, to tour the mysterious ruins of the Incas, set high in the Andes Mountains, and discover the citadel that centuries later would become one of the new Seven Wonders of the World: MACHU PICCHU.

This tour is for sure a BUCKET LIST experience for those who want a true Peruvian experience!  Come make new friends while living your adventurer-side dream.
