Peru Tours

There are so many rewarding things to do in Peru that it can be somewhat daunting trying to figure out where to spend your travel time here. You might also wonder how you are going to go about visiting the attractions that you have singled out among the numerous possibilities. Thankfully, there are a myriad of Peru tours that cover just about every destination and activity you could conceive of. From the desert coastal region of western Peru, to the soaring Andes Mountains, Peru tours can have you hiking a volcano, or visiting impressive pre-Columbian ruins. East of the Andes Mountains, the Amazon Jungle awaits curious visitors with countless animal and plant species. Peru tours to the Amazon are a great compliment to other Peru destinations, and with everything taken care of, all you have to do is worry about having a good time. Peru tours are so efficient, effective and easy to come by, that you will almost more than likely end up taking at least one.

If you choose to spend some time in the capital city of Lima during your Peru vacation, you might find interest in the Lima city tours. They are a good way to see all the main sights in the city, as well as learn a little bit about them. About 125 miles south of Lima, the Nazca Lines attract a good amount of visitors, and the flights over them are among the best Peru tours. You can arrange Nazca Lines tours from Lima, or in the cities of Ica and Nazca. Some of the more popular tours north of Lima are offered in the cities of Trujillo and Chiclayo. The bulk of northern Peru tours visit the archaeological ruins of the Moche and Chimu civilizations, among the more notable of which is Chan Chan. These tours are generally not very expensive, and while the Inca ruins of Machu Picchu are rightfully the most visited ruins in Peru, these northern offerings are exceptional as well. Generally, the best Peru tours are offered in the tourist haven city of Cusco, where the agencies are plenty, and the variety impressive. If you are looking for good budget Peru tours, there are some wonderful options that are based in Cusco, or that visit there. Budget Peru tours in Cusco can have you visiting the Inca Trail, Machu Picchu, and the Amazon jungle area of Manu. If Peru’s archaeological sites are the reason you are coming to Peru, you can find extensive budget Peru tours that take you from Lima to Cusco, with stops in Chiclayo, Trujillo, Nazca, Arequipa, and Puno. Talk about covering some of the best that Peru has to offer. If you want a taste of the different regions and histories of Peru, there are budget Peru tours that can take you from colonial Lima to the Amazon Rainforest city of Puerto Maldonado. Visit Lake Titicaca along the way, and experience the stunning scenery that Peru’s distinct regions display. Trekking and mountain climbing tours are popular in the Andes Mountains, and these Peru tours can be arranged in Cusco and Arequipa, but that doesn’t mean you won’t find more agencies throughout the mountains. Tourism is one of Peru’s top industries, if not its most profitable, and as such, arranging Peru tours either beforehand or on the fly is easier than ever. This is surely one country that caters well to the traveler.

Peru tours can last anywhere from a few hours to a few weeks. Becoming ever more popular are the Peru vacation tours, which basically leave you to have to plan very little. For example, the Amazon Jungle is a popular destination for Peru vacation tours, and if you book one, you will be taken care of from the time your plane lands. Peru vacation tours provide an itinerary, hotel accommodations along the way, and excursions and activities for each destination. Book a package tour near the Amazon city of Iquitos, and you might stay at a hotel in town one night, and a jungle lodge the next. Treks on the jungle trails are extremely popular and are included in most, if not all jungle tours, and river cruises are a nice way to sit back and take it all in. The great thing about Peru vacation tours is that your transportation is already arranged, and on some, even your meals are accounted for. Regardless of how many days you have and what you want to see, Peru tours are always available to help you enjoy and maximize your time in Peru.

It is worth noting that for outdoor tour options, the city of Arequipa is among the top spots to base yourself. Some of the best Peru tours are offered in Arequipa, such as trips to Colca Canyon, where you can hike and see the amazing Andean condors. El Misti, one of the most notable Peru volcanoes, is an enduring symbol of Arequipa. Misti hiking tours are great for people who want to experience mountain climbing without all the equipment and dangerous ascents. As flying in Peru is relatively cheap, you will find that many Peru tours include transportation by way of airplane. Regardless of its fairly large size, Peru can be quite easy to get around due to its many national airports. Even if money is tight, you can find cheap Peru tours to engage yourself with, and with so many Peru hostels to choose from, taking that Peru vacation doesn’t require saving as much money as you might have thought it would.
