Tour Details

This program has been designed as a great all round trip and could be ideally for families or a small group of friends looking for a more extensive outlook on the Southern part of Peru as well as staying in very good standard of accomodation throughout the duration of their trip. 

Aside from the most favoured destinations such as Lima, Cusco and Machu Picchu, it you will also give a further insight as to some of the different terrains such as the coast  -with a visit to Paracas and Ballestos Islands – as well as the only desert Oasis in South America where sand buggy rides are proving very popular with the younger generation of travellers. This trip will also cover a visit to the famous Nasca Lines.

The hotels are rated as 4 star and aimed to be family-friendly but also cater well for just about anyone looking at this standard of accommodation.
