Pacific & Andes: A Cultural Journey Through Peru

Weavers in the Andes; ceviche on the Pacific; archaeological wonders at every turn. This is the story of Peru's past and the flavours and textures of its present.

The unmissable Inca sites of Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley of the high Andes contrast beautifully with the ancient cultures of Peru's northern coast on this private guided journey.
