Peru

Mention Peru to almost anybody you know and the first thing that they will think of is the ancient site of Macchu Picchu, a citadel that was built by the Incas nearly 600 years ago, on the side of a mountain in the Andes. While Macchu Picchu undoubtedly deserves its place as one of the highlights in almost all of the Peru tours you will find online, the country has much more to offer in addition to this legendary site. Situated on the west coast of South America, it is home to many charming cities and a host of natural delights.

Peru Highlights

The starting place for many Peru tours is the capital city of Lima. Founded by Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro in 1535, it is the second-largest city in the Americas and its attractions include museums, art galleries, archaeological sites and a historic centre. It is also widely acknowledged as the gastronomic capital of South America, ensuring that all your senses will be satisfied when you visit this beautiful city.

The Amazon and its tributaries flow across many countries, including Brazil, Columbia, Venezuela, Bolivia, and, fortunately for us, Peru. This means that during your time in the country, you will have the opportunity to explore a myriad of flora and fauna that can only be found in this river system. Birdwatching on the banks of the Amazon is a fascinating pastime, with numerous species flocking together to feed on the insects that live in the rainforest habitat. Among those you might see during your trip are rare birds such as the black-necked red cotinga and the nocturnal currasow.

At the border between Peru and Bolivia, Lake Titicaca can be found, here you can visit the tortora-reed islands that are home to a small tribal community with its roots in the pre-Inca civilisation that flourished in this area centuries ago. A full-day excursion to the islands can be included in your itinerary if you desire.

If you are keen to see Macchu Picchu when you travel to Peru, one of the best ways to reach this ancient site is by hiking along the equally historic Inca Trail, which traverses diverse natural areas from high-altitude desert to tropical rainforest.

Wherever you go, you are sure to have a fantastic trip when you book a Peruvian tour with South America Tours Pty Ltd. We can create a custom itinerary for you and will provide an English-speaking guide to show you all of the sights.
