Ancient wonders, spectacular mountain treks, sparkling lakes and so much more lie in wait with our Peru tours.
A trip to Peru offers a travel experience like no other - from the mystical Machu Picchu that now resides as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World to its lively and sophisticated capital Lima. There’s much to discover when you book a Peru tour with us.
Whatever your travelling desires may be, our Peru tours will provide you with an excellent combination of action, adventure and culture.
Tread the ancient Inca paths, stopping off at Machu Picchu and the old Incan capital of Cuzco while exploring all the secrets of the mountains, before heading to the glistening Lake Titicaca near the Bolivian border or into the Amazon jungle.
We have a great selection of small group tours in Peru that last for around two to three weeks, all setting off from Lima.
With our Peru tours, you'll get the chance to spot exotic wildlife offshore in the Ballestas Islands on our Machu Picchu Calling tour, enjoy a relaxing dip in lakes high up in the Andes with Mountains to the Lakes and experience the country's historic culture through the Walking with the Incas.
Most of our Peru tours include a trek to Machu Picchu. Don't hesitate to contact us for any additional information or if you'd like to enquire about our tailor-made tours.

When a single women in her 50's, traveling from the US to Egypt, stumbles across a website offering a tour, and then they make her feel totaling comfortable about every step of the process, you know you've hit a homerun!
This is our first travel through Encounters Travel and so far the arrangement is working very well. Our travel is not until April 2017 so I am more than hopeful all will continue to run as smoothly as it has so far.
I liked the fact we were met at the airport and helped thru customs and getting a visa and then upon leaving taken to where we needed to go. Its always tough to figure out where everything is in a foreign airport when you do not travel much
We had a wonderful time and great memories. We felt safe the whole time and would recommend this trip to anyone of any age as long as you can walk a lot. They are with you from arrival to departure and any problems that arose the guides would try their best to solve. They also showed remarkable patience for other people in other groups we saw that were acting like idiots.
I purchased my rid tour as part of a group coupon. Is obituary hesitant but my tour was great. The staff at Encounters were professional and helpful. I had a lot of questions but no one made me feel like a pest. Good experience.
I always wanted to go to Morocco and I finally got to go last September. I'm glad I chose this tour group. They were professional and attentive. Good times!
Encounters Travel did such a superb job in organizing this tour. I had never heard of them before going on the Maldives Magic tour, however now I will recommend them to friends/family and use them for my future planned trips.
Our tour is what made the trip that much more memorable. Rather than being plopped at a westernized resort, we were able to get a taste of how the locals live, eat and entertain themselves. We stayed in quaint guesthouses on the islands amongst the locals, ate authentic Maldivian cuisine (one day even with a Maldivian family who made us breakfast), and viewed a traditional dance/singing performance which was absolutely delightful. This was a trip of a lifetime that I will never forget.
