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.

We Have updated information Here, and a Few Words About the Best of Machu Picchu Peru Tours

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.

WHAT TO DO IN PERU?
For many travelers, Peru immediately brings to mind the famous ruins of Machu Picchu. And while this is a 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!
PLANS FOR 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 TOUR

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 PERU TOURS

With Machu Picchu often taking center stage, it’s often forgotten that half of Peru is Amazon Rainforest! A lodge stays 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 & TOURS

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.
