Peru

Boasting no less than ten UNESCO World Heritage sites and ranking amongst the world's top eight nations in terms of biodiversity, any travel to Peru will allow you to enjoy a land of contrasts and a country brimming with culture, legend, folklore and fascination. We are Australia's Peru expert. The only specialist travel company to Latin America with our very own offices in Lima and in the Inca capital of Cusco. Our staff are on hand 24/7 to help you enjoy this fantastic destination - and of course, give you peace of mind.

With over 1,700 birds, 400 species of mammals, 300 reptiles, and 50,000 plants registered to date, 14% of Peru is designated as Protected Natural Areas.

From the dryness of the Atacama Desert to the frozen ice-capped peaks and plunging canyons of the Andes. Across the waters of Lake Titicaca, to the rainforests of the Amazon Basin, scattered remnants of ancient civilisations bring the incredible history of Latin America alive.

Known as the ‘Egypt of South America’, the country is brimming with historical sites, from the ancient fortress of Kuelap to the mysterious Nazca Lines. But without doubt, the jewel in Peru’s crown is the legendary Machu Picchu, which in 2007 was voted one of the new Seven Wonders of the World.

Whether you are looking for archaeology and culture, excellent cuisine or activity and adventure, you will find it all in one of Chimu Adventures’ Peru tours.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing destination & highlight of South America All transfers very good, accommodation in Lima (Second Home Hotel) very good & great location although on the last night it was too far from airport for early flight the next day. Accommodation in Puno (Casa Andina Private) very good but out of town, in Cusco (Casa Cartagena) superb & great staff, in Aguas Calientes (Machu Picchu Pueblo) very good but no water available early of 1st morning for showers etc., in Puerto Maldonado (Refugio Amazonas) good considering remote location & limited electricity. Beer was always cold after hard days jungle trecking! Will cover tours through Peru in a separate review

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peru, Peru, Peru! I don't think there was one meal in Peru that I regretted. The gastronomy in Peru was mentioned prior to leaving Australia, but to be perfectly honest I never had a chance to try it before. My gosh, forget other world cuisines - and get to Peru. The food was out of this world. It was something that really struck me. All enjoyed with a Pisco Sour of course! The rest of the trip was wonderful. Machu Picchu has long been on my bucket list, and to tick it off was a lifetime achievement. The Sacred Valley and Pisac markets were also fantastic, a wide variety of goods available all at a reasonable cost. We loved the Waka Punku hotel in Cusco, a real gem and close to the action.. Lake Titicaca was also a wonder, visit the Uros Islands was mind blowing. Next trip is Galapagos next year.. and please can we stop in Peru again? Many thanks to all in Peru we met, and were welcomed by including Larry, Sandra, Andy and Ale. You have a great team in Peru, and I will sing their praises to everyone I see.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Salkantay Trek plus The trek was fantastic. The Mountain Lodges of Peru were excellent in every way. In the future, we recommend that trekkers should be advised to take gaiters.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Peru The organizaton from and to each destination went very smoothly...well done. One day was too long travelling from A to B and would have preferred flights or trains between Cities. We cancelled the day before the Inca Tail because we didn't want another full day touring. The Inca Trail was good, but sleeping on the floor was difficult, toilet, washing facilites were poor and the food was acceptable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding - trip of a lifetime! The people, the scenery, the culture, the food - every aspect of our time in Peru was amazing. Macchu Pichu was an incredibly humbling and exhilarating experience, but we loved the whole of the Sacred Valley and all the surrounding areas. Sites were well maintained, two teenagers travelling with us were kept happy the entire time, and even the weather was great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved every moment! The trip was well planned ensuring that the impact of altitude was minimised. The destination provides a wide variety of experiences. From fantastic scenery to outdoor pursuits to strong cultural experiences of ancient civilisations.
