From its amazing archaeological treasures to its gastronomic delights and from its rich history to its melting pot of cultures, Peru offers visitors a wide array of attractions. On this tour you'll experience its highlights, finishing in Colca Canyon and Arequipa, a spectacular natural wonder in Peru! Start in Lima, a cosmopolitan city steeped in history with pre-Columbian ruins, Spanish colonial buildings, and remnants of colonial mansions. On your sightseeing tour you'll see many of its famous sights. High in the Andes Mountains, Cusco is the oldest continuously inhabited city in South America and is sure to please history buffs. Learn about the Incas' struggles with the invading Spaniards on your tour of Cusco and visit the Temple of Sacsayhuaman, built in the early 12th century, with some stones weighing more than 350 tons. Try to figure out how it was built so precisely without the help of modern machinery and technology! Of course, no vacation to Peru is complete without visiting Machu Picchu. Built around 1450 at the height of the Inca Empire, Machu Picchu is located in a gorgeous mountain setting above the Urubamba Valley. Stand in awe as you witness it—it is one of the most majestic images in all of South America!

Not only will you visit the must-see sites, you'll also have an opportunity to learn about Peruvian life. Experience a Mother Earth Ceremony, performed by a local shaman. These ceremonies thanking Mother Earth and asking for good health and safe travels have been practiced in Peru since before the arrival of the Incas. You'll also stop at a Peruvian food market and visit a home to meet some of the locals and experience their way of life.

Conclude your vacation by heading south to Arequipa and Colca Canyon, one of the deepest canyons in the world. Colca Canyon is an outdoor escape where you can take a day trek to see some of the most impressive views in Peru, mingle with locals in the villages, or maybe spot majestic condors overhead. Known as the “White City," Arequipa is a picturesque location with its sillar volcanic stone buildings and Mount Misti as a backdrop. It's a unique finish to a uniquely Peruvian discovery!
