Operated by ?

Peru offers an amazing combination of history, natural beauty, mouth-watering cuisine, and warm people. And with Globus, add amazing value to that list!

Discover the wonders of Peru on this vacation featuring the must-see highlights of the Land of the Incas at a price that tells you now is the time! Your Lima sightseeing features the San Francisco Monastery along with the Plaza de Armas to see the Government Palace and the Cathedral. Fly to Cusco where you will be whisked into the Sacred Valley of the Incas where you will learn about the importance of the camelids in this area and see the ancient weaving techniques still in use today at Awanakancha. After time to explore the famous Indian market of Pisac, settle into your lush mountain-side hotel. Take the train through Urubamba Valley and spend a day at the impressive Machu Picchu ruins. Your tour of this ancient site reveals the many mysteries shrouded high in the clouds and rainforest. On your return to Cusco, your sightseeing tour includes visits to Sacsayhuaman, built in the early 12th century, and the Kenko Temple. Of course, no trip to Peru is complete without seeing the Nazca Lines. When seen from the air, the lines form precise geometric shapes that number in the hundreds, as well as 70 figures, which include a monkey, whale, hummingbird, shark, spiders, and plants. Archaeologists remain puzzled about why the ancient Nazca people, who thrived here from 200 BC to 500 AD, created illustrations that could only be seen from far above the earth. These are just some of the many highlights you’ll see on this wonderful Peru vacation designed for savvy, value-minded travelers. All this is now within reach!
