Many people visit Peru to see the impressive Incan ruins on a Machu Picchu tour, which are deservedly a stand-alone destination. However, when visiting Machu Picchu, make sure to set aside time to discover both Cuzco and the Sacred Valley.
Meet the locals and tour other nearby Incan ruins and museums to learn about the famous Inca Empire. In the Sacred Valley, visit the open-air Pisac Market and purchase some of the colorful textiles, authentic alpaca sweaters, watercolor paintings, and other fun souvenirs on offer there. If time permits, spend the night in the town of Ollantaytambo, a town that has been around since the Incan empire. From Ollantaytambo take the train to Aguas Calientes, the final town before Machu Picchu.
From the capital city of Lima, visit Arequipa, the city sitting at the foot of El Misti Volcano in the southern deserts of Peru. Arequipa is a UNESCO World Heritage Site complete with beautiful colonial architecture and cathedrals. Here you will find old world charm with the colorful buildings and Spanish-style plazas. Just outside of the city Arequipa is the Colca Canyon where the large Andean condors soar.
The Essence of Peru Tour is a popular Peru travel package and the perfect introduction to South America. Visit Lima, Cuzco, Machu Picchu, the Colca Canyon, Lake Titicaca, the Nazca Lines, Arequipa and more! The journey from Cuzco down to the Sacred Valley, to Aguas Calientes and finally to Machu Picchu is an adventure in and of itself. Along the way, you will learn about the traditions and practices of the Incan civilization. It is no wonder this is our most popular Peru Tour among our Peru Vacation Packages!
If you're interested in Northern Peru, our Chan Chan,Trujillo & Kuelap tour takes you to ruins that predate Machu Picchu. Visit the coast of Peru and go on a day cruise to the Ballestas Islands where you stand the chance to spot penguins!
From diverse salt flats to archaeological sites that inspire wonder and awe, Peru truly has it all. Whether you are looking to explore everything Peru is famous for, learn all about when Peru's Rainy Season is before you travel, or are simply looking to learn about how to avoid altitude sickness when visiting Cusco, SouthAmerica.travel is your expert source for Peru travel advice.
There are no direct roads leading to Machu Picchu since the valley has space only for the tracks of this rail line. Fortunately, there are several train options: The luxurious Hiram Bingham train, connecting Cuzco to Machu Picchu, and the comfortable Inca Rail and Peru Rail options connecting the Sacred Valley to the Citadel. From the train station in Machu Picchu Pueblo, originally called Aguas Calientes for its hot springs, you then take a shuttle up to the ruins.
Peru is situated just South of the Equator, so the sun is very intense year round! But Lima and most of the coast is cooled by the Pacific Ocean, which is rather cold here. In the mountains around the Inca ruins, it is cool because of the altitude. Only in the Amazon and there only during the day you will experience tropical heat. There is no monsoon-like weather in Peru, like in Asia. In the summer (from December to March) you can experience heavy rains in the Andes and the Amazon. It never rains along the coast, which is a coastal desert. In June to August, it can get cold in the mountains, but it rarely rains there during that dry season. So just bring a good jacket along.
