Machu Picchu Tours

On any of our Peru customized tours, you really should include a visit to Machu Picchu! One of the seven wonders of the world, the Lost City of Machu Picchu ranks among Peru’s most impressive and awe-inspiring destinations. Our popular Machu Picchu tours feature three options to travel to the ancient city – by train from Cusco, by hiking the spectacular 4-day Inca Trail through the Sacred Valley camping along the way, or by trekking just the final day of the Inca Trail – arriving to Machu Picchu on foot, but without the camping.

Popular Peru Tours

For a comprehensive experience of the best of Peru, consider The Essence of Peru Tour. This popular 15-day journey begins in Lima, the City of the Kings, and explores the heart of Peru, visiting the mysterious Nazca Lines, the beautiful bay of Paracas, the mythical Lake Titicaca, and of course, the city in the sky, Machu Picchu.

For a multi-country experience, consider a Peru and Bolivia tour for a deep exploration of Incan culture and ancient ruins through Lima, Cusco, La Paz, Machu Picchu, and Lake Titicaca. And our Peru and Chile tours are also quite popular as guests explore Easter Island and Machu Picchu – two of the most amazing and mysterious places on earth. Vacations to Peru are always a good idea.

Peru Travel FAQ’s

Thinking about a Peru trip? Here’s a list of frequently asked questions we often hear from our guests. Visit our Peru Vacation Planning page for in-depth travel tips on tour in Peru.

When is the best time to visit Peru?

The best time to visit Peru is in June, when popular sites like Machu Picchu, the Amazon, and the Andes are most accessible. During this time, the rainy season has come to a close, the Andes are lush with green vegetation and the weather is comfortable. This is an ideal time to visit Peru if you’re interested in hiking, biking, or other outdoor activities.

Is Peru safe?

Yes, traveling to Peru is safe! Just as in most large world cities, your travels will generally steer you clear from the rougher areas of town. Additionally, your guides know where to go and what to avoid! As in any popular international tourist attractions: be aware of unarmed pickpockets in crowded public spaces.

How much does it cost to go to Machu Picchu?

It costs approximately $ 1200 to $ 5000 to go to Machu Picchu depending on the experience in hotels and accommodation you are looking for.

Consider this: At least one night in Lima, one night in the Sacred Valley, as well as perhaps one in Aguas Calientes, and ideally at least two in Cuzco, are necessary to make the journey. Additionally, calculate for your international flights (ex: from Miami to Lima is about $ 500 return). Then add in domestic flights (return trip Lima-Cuzco), which can be relatively inexpensive ($ 100 on up). When you’re traveling to a place of high altitude, you’re going to want to splurge on some comfort for your accommodations. Food can be inexpensive however consider the aspect of hygiene – you may want to avoid the cheapest restaurant option! Overall, plan on spending $ 2200 for a minimally comfortable trip. Then we recommend taking advantage of many of the other historical sites in Peru and surrounding countries since you are already there!

How can I prepare for altitude sickness?

The best way to prepare for altitude sickness on tours to Peru is to go slow upon arrival in the mountains and drink loads of water! If you’re going to Cuzco and Machu Picchu, make sure your first night is in the Sacred Valley, which is just 90 minutes away from the Cuzco airport and much lower in altitude than Cuzco. And explore Cuzco after you come back from Machu Picchu. Note: Machu Picchu is actually lower than the Sacred Valley, which in turn is lower than the city of Cuzco!

Is Peru a developing country?

Yes, but the government decided that tourism should be a sector of growth and has dedicated a lot of education and investment in this area. Also, the country has been steadily growing for the last 30 years. With low unemployment and low inflation, the tourism sector is highly developed! Expect world-class service, especially in 4-star to 5-star hotels. Also, the airlines operating in Peru are world-class and many codeshares with International Airlines. Latam is a member of the Oneworld Alliance together with American Airlines, while Avianca is a member of the Star Alliance like United or Lufthansa.

What can I eat in Peru?

Everything you know from home, but so much more! Peru’s cuisine nowadays brings all ingredients together. From the Amazon, from the mountains, and from the coast. Manioc, yams, plantains, alpaca meat, quinoa, pink corn, blue potatoes, fish, all kinds of fresh vegetables, and wine. Peru is a country where you can eat like you are at home or try new things! In Peru, we make reservations for you at all of the famous restaurants. But we also love to show you the ingredients first, then take you to a cooking class, and then have you enjoy the meal that everybody is talking about. Your travel consultant has a list of restaurants ready to go and will recommend the ones that fit your preferences.
