Tailor Made Sample Itinerary No.8

Peru budget holidayExplore the highlights of Peru at an affordable price in this varied and well priced tour which includes plenty of guided tours and excursions. Begin on Peru’s desert coast with a visit to the Paracas National Reserve, home to pelicans, Humboldt penguins, terns, cormorants, sealions, fur seals, whales and dolphins. Then explore the rich biodiversity of the Amazon rainforest’s Tambopata National Reserve, accompanied by a naturalist guide. Fly to Cusco, once the capital of the mighty Inca empire and now a lively city with a rich mix of Inca and colonial architecture. Take the train to the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu and explore that magnificent testament to their culture. Experience Peru’s rich pre-Inca culture during a visit to Lake Titicaca, and travel through the magnificent Colca Canyon (reputedly twice as deep as the Grand Canyon) home to the Andean condor, often seen rising on the morning thermals.  A remarkably complete tour of Peru at a very affordable price.

BARE NECESSITIES TOURS:

This tour is part of our new collection of Bare Necessities sample tailor-made tours where you decide what to do when, while staying in a great selection of accommodation and benefiting from our usual high standards of service.

Why Are These Tours Different?
Our new range of Bare Necessities itineraries provide you with all the essentials for a successful holiday on the ground at an agreeably low price. They will appeal to those happy to find their own international flights (perhaps using accumulated Air Miles or favourite websites), visit some local sites independently, search out local restaurants, and decide what excursions to do and when to do them.

What is Included in the Price?
Meet and greet, transfers, domestic flights, accommodation, most breakfasts and a number of lunches and dinners (as stated), complimentary on-site activities (eg, use of swimming pool, snorkel gear, canoes, nature trails), inclusive tours which are part of a lodge’s general package (eg, game drives in the Pantanal), and a variable number of chargeable tours and excursions which are either too hard or unreliable to organise on the spot, or which we consider essential to enjoy fully the destination.

What is Not Included in the Price?
International flights (we shall be delighted, of course, to quote for flights if you like), optional tours and excursions (if there are any you wish to include, just let us know), and some breakfasts, lunches and dinners (normally where there are alternative dining options).
