Description of Peru adventure holiday, small group

This 19 day adventure holiday in Peru, a small group tour, follows a carefully crafted itinerary around a circuit of the country’s most spectacular natural heritage highlights. The top two on the list are hiking the Inca Trail up to the iconic ancient citadel of Machu Picchu, and then spending a couple of nights at a riverfront lodge in the Amazon jungle.

There are many other adventures to be had in Peru, however, such as exploring the great Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world, at a breathtaking 3,800m, where we visit the extraordinary floating reed islands. Or watching condors soaring over the Colca Canyon, which plunges over 4km into an Andean valley and is one of the world's deepest canyons.

On this small group tour, we travel by bus (including an overnight bus trip to Arequipa), riverboat on the Amazon, a reed boat on Lake Titicaca and by air back to Lima at the end of the trip, so be prepared for quite a lot of time travelling. However, the destinations that we take you to are very much worth the trip. Not forgetting the three days on foot along the Inca Trail of course. With the most stunning destination of all at the end of that!

Hello. If you'd like to chat about this holiday or need help finding one we're very happy to help. Rosy & team.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Peru adventure holiday, small group

Environment

Environment - Local guides lend their expertise to the journey, including the ecological, historical background and cultural significance of the places we visit. Our Inca Trail Porters policy protects the rights and conditions of porters and is strictly enforced. For other activities we choose only the best trained guides, who will help you to appreciate the importance of respecting the environment of these heritage sites and understand the conservation efforts being undertaken in various areas. Your entrance fees will help to conserve and preserve heritage sites, such as ancient ruins, while entrance fees at national parks support the conservation efforts of forest and native animal and bird species.

Inca Trek Trail - The Inca Trail is strictly protected and a limited number of permits are issued each day. This is a necessary conservation regulation, but please be advised that this can make it difficult to obtain Inca Trail permits. We offer an alternative off-the-beaten-track trek to the Lares Valley, which is a beautiful alternative to the more famous, well-trodden trail. Your tour leader and local guides will give you a briefing on how to preserve the environment before your trek.

Community

We will visit many local shopping districts and markets along the way, giving you plenty of opportunity to support local merchants. We encourage you to purchase traditional handicrafts from local artisans rather than mass produced goods from chain stores, as you will learn more about the skill involved in the production, while also supporting the craft itself.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


All of it and seeing what I have wanted to see for years! The operator packed a lot in and ensured we saw sites at their best and at the right time of day.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


This is an excellent company who look after their travellers. Peru is not an easy option and requires some support on a first visit in terms of organising long distance travel to different sites etc. within (for me) a reasonable budget

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


It did benefit local guides who were very knowledgable and extremely helpful on many occasions. Particularly as I was travelling alone. Also local drivers
who, on the whole, were brilliant.
Not sure about environmental impacts. I saw deserts awash with plastic so this needs addressing as we all know.
The staff on the Inca Trail were amazing and protected it and others carefully logged who went on (and off!) the trails and where. Macchu Pichu it is a bit
like a theme park which is a shame but I gather access is going to be limited further so good - it needs protecting.


4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


The tour more than exceeded my expectations.

Read the operator's response here:

Hi Valerie, thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review and we are so pleased you joined us in Peru! We hope to see you on another adventure in
the future.

All the best,

Rosanna @ Tucan Travel

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Getting to Macchu Picchu which has been a dream of mine for years.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Go with an open mind, try everything!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


The fact that local guides were used was a great way of helping the community. We were encouraged to be economic and think about our waste so yes.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


It was my first time booking with a tour and I'd certainly do it again!

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The whole trip has been the most fantastic experience, we cannot actually pick out any single part of it which stood out more than any other. We have never
had such a varied range of experiences and adventure in one trip before. Incredible journey.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Go!!!! If you take American Dollars ensure that the notes are in pristine condition, they majority of exchange places will not accept any note then shows any sign (no matter how small) of damage. The main banks in the larger towns/cities will accept damaged notes but obviously being a bank the rate will be slightly lower.

All the main towns/tourist areas have recycle bins for plastics/paper/organic waste but unfortunately rubbish management is not yet high on the locals
priorities so be prepared to see rubbish literally everywhere!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


We believe so, you have the opportunity to buy souvenirs/products from local people in many places which obviously supports them and their families directly. The authorities are working to support the conservation and maintenance of important areas/ historic sites whilst also facilitating access to encourage tourism, they are trying hard to maintain this balance between both as the country needs the income generated from this.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


One of the best experiences of our lives!
