Peru

The Empire of the Sun

Peru JOURNEYS

Unlimited diversity

Peru is without a doubt an absolute top destination. For most travelers , Peru is synonymous with the impressive Inca archaeological finds in the high Andes . Obviously, a visit to the legendary Machu Picchu is high on everyone's wish list. In recent years, however, the image of the South American country has become increasingly versatile. Get acquainted with the overwhelming Peruvian cuisine; Lima is the culinary capital of Latin America for a reason! You can enjoy the hospitable Indians in the colorful markets and the impressive condors float by in the Colca Canyon. Don't forget to visit the lesser-known north of the country. The clay Chan Chan palaces and the mysterious structures of the Chachapoyas , the people of the clouds, will surprise even the most experienced traveler. A well-kept secret are the tropical beaches of Mancora with its swaying palm trees.

A coastal desert, the deepest canyons in the world, the immense Lake Titicaca , the Altiplano , snow-capped Andes peaks, active volcanoes, evergreen rainforest and mighty jungle rivers… The diversity of the country in terms of nature, culture, landscapes and peoples seems almost limitless.

Co & Joke Vink

Dear Joseph & employees, It was right from A to Z. A perfectly organized (by Robert) and executed trip through Peru and Ecuador with a spectacular closing on the Galapagos Islands.

After visiting Lima and Paracas (Nazca Lines) we rise through Arequipa and Colca Canyon to the literal and figurative peak in Peru, Lake Titicaca with the floating reed islands of the Uros. Then to Cusco , Ollantaytambo and Machu Picchu . The three guides who a…

Greetings Hancke

Best, Here's our feedback about our trip to Peru. We had a truly wonderful trip. We were impressed with the quality of the hotels, the guidance of the local agent, the guides and the program. The rainy season was definitely not a nuisance. We were lucky that it didn't rain much at times when we visited the most important things, and of course it gave the advantage of being quite calm everywhere. The expected overcrowded sites did not materialize… We only had our reservations about the hote…

FROM OUR BLOG

Peru – pisco – perfecto

Food and drink, it is part of every trip. More and more people are choosing specific destinations because of the restaurants and the local tastes. Culinary journeys where gastronomic highlights are strung together are in demand. I travel to Lima for the Mistura festival, the biggest food festival in South America and the valhalla of the goodies. And for   the many top restaurants that the city is rich.
