Welcome to Tour Leaders Peru Travel guide.

Tours of Peru were already a regular thing when we began our Peru adventures – but we wanted to go a step further. We didn’t just want to show tourists around Peru. We wanted them to engage with the culture, learn about the local wildlife, the history and relevance of each place – and perhaps most importantly of all, we wanted to create a tour group in Peru that would help preserve our natural areas and create a cycle of “giving back” within our community.

Welcome to Tour Leaders Peru Travel guide.

As natural-born Peruvians and descendants of the Inca Culture themselves, it is incredibly important to us that our traditional ways of life be preserved, even as we welcome the new diverse cultural values arising in our modern world. Our history needs to be kept, the stories of our Ancestors need to be heeded, the ecology of our country saved from further environmental destruction.

A Look Inside Peru Travel

A Few Words About the Best Peru Tours

WHEN TO GO

While a trip to Peru will be sure to impress any time of year, depending upon your travel preferences some times of year are better than others. “High” season falls between the months of June to August, which is actually winter in the Southern Hemisphere. The winter has the best weather for trekking, therefore making it the most ideal time to visit Machu Picchu. While temperatures maybe a little bit more chilly ( with mid-30s lows and mid-60s highs), there is a lot less rainfall making trails more accessible.

However, if you’re hoping to avoid large crowds then you may consider visiting Peru during a shoulder or offseason. It is worth noting that if your main draw to Peru is Machu Picchu that the “wet season” is likely to put a damper on your efforts. Heavy rains December through March make for muddy trails and the historical site is often closed for maintenance the entire month of February.

But, if you are more interested in Peru’s coastal and rain-forest regions, you’ll find that off-season provides the same wildlife viewing and better beach weather, not to mention cheaper flights.

WHAT TO DO

For many, Peru immediately brings to mind the famous ruins of Machu Picchu. And while this is site worthy of any bucket list, Peru has much to offer travelers beyond this ancient Incan city. Take a look at some of Peru’s noteworthy sites and activities below. Don’t know where to start? One of our Peru travel specialists can help create the perfect custom itinerary based on your travel interests in preferences whether your an avid adventurer, a history buff, or both!

lIMA PERU

Peru’s thriving capital city is a hub for all things culture and cuisine. Considered the gastronomic capital of South America, Lima is the place to eat whether your a seasoned foodie or not. This port city’s cuisine aptly reflects its layered history of indigenous, Spanish, African, Asian, and Italian influences. From tantalizing Plato’s criollos ( creole dishes) to mazamorra Morada ( a sweet custard made from local purple corn), there is something to satisfy every palate.

Between meals, admire Lima’s diverse architecture from the Spanish-influenced squares to the modern San Isidro Garden District.

THE NAZCA LINES

Located in a desert on Peru’s southern coast the town of Nazca lies at what was once the base of the ancient Nazca civilization. Today, you’ll find relics of this once thriving civilization in the Nazca lines, huge representations of animals, humans and other geometrics carved into a vast rock plateau.

Nazca tours depart from Lima, making them easy to incorporate into a more comprehensive tours of Peru. The drive down the southern coast to Nazca takes about four hours, but the coastal town of Pracas makes an excellent overnight stopover. The town sits just north of Paracas Peninsula, an area of rich biodiversity within the Paracas National Reserve. The peninsula – which is easily explored via bicycle – is famous for its colonial era cathedrals. For the more adventurous, you can take a quick boat ride to the Ballestas Islands and immerse yourself in a remarkable ecosystem full of Humboldt penguins, sea lions, pelicans, cormorants, terns, boobies and vultures.

AMAZON TOURS

With Machu Picchu often taking center stage, it’s often forgotten that half of Peru is Amazon Rainforest! A lodge stay on the Madre de Dios River is the perfect complement to a high-altitude mountain itinerary and an unforgettable part of a Peru tour.

Amazon excursions from Puerto Maldonado include a boat transfer from the city to a river lodge, where guests are provided options for daily safari-like activities. The Tambopata National Reserve sets the stage for boat tours during which you’ll have the opportunity to spot giant river otters, macaws, howler monkeys, caimans, and anacondas.

Nighttime rainforest excursions provide the opportunity to see night-jars, owls, and capybara; furthermore, at the Inkaterra Canopy Walkway, you can traverse a network of platforms and bridges for a birds-eye perspective of the Amazonian ecosystem and resident toucans, squirrel monkeys, and three-toed sloths.

LAKE TITICACA

Peru’s southeastern border with Bolivia bisects Lake Titicaca and the surrounding altiplano (highlands). The lake is mesmerizing for its unbelievable size, deep blue color, and diverse wildlife as well as the fascinating myriad of cultures practicing traditional farming, fishing, and crafting within the lake’s unique microclimate.

Puno is the main port city on the Peru side of Lake Titicaca, and the rail route from Cusco to Puno is considered one of the Great Train Journeys of the World. There is also an airport in the nearby town of Juliaca, making Titicaca a great option for all trips to Peru.

The lake itself features ancient man-made islands constructed from native vegetation reeds, mysterious Chullpas (pre-Incan burial tombs), Inca ruins, and an impressive variety of indigenous clothing, handicrafts, music, and cuisine. Canoe and bike tours are a lovely way to take in all the lake has to offer amid idyllic scenery.

What makes Machu Picchu so compelling that it draws thousands of tourists here is that it stood forgotten for centuries until Hiram Bingham brought it to the world’s attention in 1911. The Incas kept the secret of its existence closely guarded against the Spanish invaders and no written records exist. To this day, nobody truly knows why it was built.

Theories abound; Machu Picchu is thought to have been constructed perhaps as a site of astronomical significance, an observatory, an important agricultural station, a military fortress, a place of learning, an important ceremonial center, a royal Inca retreat, or perhaps just to celebrate the unspeakable greatness of the natural beauty around it. It is certainly successful at the last.

CLASSIC 5 INCA TRAILS 

It’s easy to get confused when talking about the Inca Trail. The Incas built a highly advanced network of nearly 40,000 thousand kilometers of trails to connect the distant corners of their vast empire that stretched from Quito in Ecuador down to Santiago in Chile and east to Mendoza in Argentina. Cusco was at the heart of this great empire. Almost all of the principal trails in the mountains surrounding Cusco were built or improved upon by the Incas. However, a particularly beautiful 43km section of mountain trail connecting the important Inca archaeological sites of Runcuracay, Sayacmarca, Phuyupatamarca, Win~nay Wayna, and Machu Picchu has become popular with hikers in the last 30 years and has become known as the “Inca Trail to Machu Picchu”. 

Complete Guide For Inca Trail Access to this section of the Inca Trail is strictly controlled and only authorized trekking companies are allowed to sell this trek. All guides on the Inca Trail must be licensed and only a limited number of trekking permits are issued and must be purchased several months in advance (see Inca Trail Permit Availability). When booking an Inca Trail tour always book with a reputable trekking company and check the day-by-day trek itinerary. If the trek doesn’t include a visit to ALL of the archaeological sites listed above then it may be possible that you are looking at a different trek completely!! There are many unscrupulous travel agencies in Peru who make a good living out of misleading visitors about the route of their Inca Trail. Some visitors only find out that they have made a mistake once they have started the trek! This guide will ensure that you are not one of them.

Winayhuayna Inca Trail Hike There are two main alternative treks to the traditional 4-day Classic Inca Trail that both end at Machu Picchu. The first and most popular alternative is the Short Inca Trail which can be completed in 1 or 2 days. This is an easier trek and starts further along with the Vilcanota River Valley closer to Machu Picchu at a place called kilometer 104. Trek permits are required for this trek so you must book several months in advance. More Information on the Short Inca Trail.

Salkantay Trekking Tour 5 DaysThe second alternative to the Classic Inca Trail trek is a more strenuous 7-day hike via Salkantay, a beautiful snow-capped mountain. This trek is usually done in 7 days although experienced trekkers should manage it in 6 days. The trek starts near the town of Mollapata and the first 3 days are spent trekking around the foot of the Salkantay mountain. On day 4 of the trek, the trail joins up with the route of the Classic Inca Trail and visit the Inca archaeological sites of Runcuracay, Sayacmarca, Phuyupatamarca, Wi~nay Wayna before trekking to Machu Picchu on the final day. This really is a spectacular trek combining the best of snow-capped mountains and Inca ruins. However, since trek permits are required this trek must be booked many months in advance. Trekking companies don’t usually offer this trek as a group/pooled service and if they do it can be very expensive. The best way to arrange this trek is to book a private tour, great if you are traveling with a group of friends or are part of a hiking club. If you require other trekkers then you could try posting a message on one of the many travel forums such as Lonely Planet Thorn Tree.  More Information on the Salkantay & Inca Trail trek.

Lares Trek To Machu Picchu 4 Day

This route to the Valley of Lares Trek to Inca Trail offers the traveler an escape from reality and introduces him into the life of the villagers, dressed in colorful ponchos. You will have the opportunity to see stone houses with thatched roofs, surrounded by herds of llamas and alpacas. In addition, you will see inside the houses the famous guinea pigs or guinea pigs running loose in all the houses.

The Lares Trek Valley offers a combination of stunning landscapes, traditional cultures, Inca Trail, and Machu Picchu. Inca Trail Lares trek will take you through breathtaking mountain scenery, over the flyovers, and you will spend two nights near the traditional villages From Peru.
