DAY 1 - Lima
Lima
A new day, a new country – let’s do this! Steeped in Spanish colonialism yet buzzing with modern metro vibes, Lima is sure to ignite your love for Peru. Spend your morning marvelling at lavishly decorated churches and an underground tunnel cemetery overflowing with bones or catacombs, then hit the Barranco district this afternoon to get a feel for its bohemian ambiance. A stroll over the Bridge of Sighs is also a must. And of course no trip to Lima is complete without devouring at least one portion of ceviche – it’s a pretty massive deal in the city. Round off the day watching the sun set over the Pacific, most likely with a pisco sour in hand…
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Lima city tour
DAY 2 - Lima to Arequipa
Lima
The skies are calling this morning as we board our included flight bound for the ‘White City’ of Arequipa, Peru’s second largest city which lies in the shadow of three majestic volcanoes.
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Included flight to Arequipa
City tour of Arequipa
Arequipa
The town of Arequipa, or La Ciudad Blanca, is both culturally and aesthetically astounding. A city tour will gets us orientated, taking in highlights including the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Plaza de Armas, then this evening is all about something we reckon you’re going to love…food. Racoto Relleno (stuffed hot peppers) and Chupe de Camarones (crayfish chowder) are both on the menu, and after a busy day exploring this ancient city, we’ll sure be deserving of a feast.
DAY 3 - Arequipa to Colca Canyon
Arequipa
Are you ready for another nature masterclass? Waving farewell to Arequipa this morning, we’ll pass through Salinas and Aguada Blanco national reserve on route to one of the world’s deepest canyons.
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Visit the Salinas and Aguada Blanca National Reserve
See wild Vicuna
See El Misti Chachani and Pichu Pichu volcanoes
Colca Canyon
After a journey of windswept landscapes, sandstone cliff & stops for hot coca tea, we will arrive at the highest point of our entire journey, which at 4910 metres/16,108ft above sea level is the same height as Mont Blanc, Europe’s highest peak. Those jaws will be on the floor as you catch a first glimpse of this epic natural masterpiece. Can you feel the tingles already?
DAY 4 - Colca Canyon to Puno
Colca Canyon
This morning promises to be pretty mega as we hop out of bed in search for the King of the Andes, otherwise known as the Andean Condor, which boasts a mega 3-metre wingspan. Fingers crossed luck is on our side – some days we may spot 10 condors, other days none – but that’s the fun of Mother Nature. Either way, the majestic view of the Colca Canyon never ceases to impress, and we know you’ll leave feeling like you’ve witnessed something truly special. Back on the road, we’ll roll past quaint villages, stop for lunch in Chivay, then head on to the high plains of Peru.
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Visit Cruz del Condor
Visit Maca
Puno
Yet more natural beauty will be dished up this afternoon as we pull in to Puno, located on the shores of Lake Titicaca. Spend the evening settling in to our cosy hotel, our head into town for some dance floor action but a word of warning – Puno sits at an altitude of 3657 metres, so go easy on the piscos and the energetic dancefloor moves as the altitude could leave you feeling more breathless than normal. Tomorrow promises to be one to remember as we take to the lake for a taste of ancient Peruvian life…
DAY 5 - Puno
Puno
Ready to explore this area in all its multi-coloured glory? We thought so. Jumping in a triciclo (a three-wheeled bike taxi) we’ll bump our way down to the port and get our first taste of life on the Lake (fun fact – Lake Titicaca is South America’s largest freshwater lake). Our boat ride will take us first to Taquile Island, which to this day remains one of the most culturally intact communities in the whole of Peru, and it’s here you’ll meet local weaving groups and stop for lunch.

After exploring, we’ll then jump back on the boat and make for the Uros Islands, or as they’re more commonly called, the floating islands. Stepping off the boat you’ll feel like you’re walking on a water bed – unsurprising given the islands are made entirely from reeds. Here, we’ll hang with locals, visit a fish farm and even explore the local museum (yes, on an island made from reeds). The island community survives by selling textiles and totora reed boats to tourists, so after stocking up on one-off souvenirs, it’s back on the boat as we head home for the night to Puno.
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Ride on a triciclo
Island boat trip on Lake Titicaca
Visit Taquile and Uros island communities
DAY 6 - Puno to Cusco via Raqchi
Puno
Heading out of Puno this morning we’ll make our way to Pukara to visit a small museum offering up archaeological findings and Peru’s iconic ceramic bulls. Hitting the road again we’ll journey through the snow-capped surrounds of La Raya, stopping for lunch in the town of Sicuani. Eagle eyes, this is llama country, so have those cameras at the ready.
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Visit Pukara La Raya and Sicuani
Entry to the Temple of Wiracocha
Visit Raqchi Inca ruins and experience a water ritual
Raqchi
Ancient Incan culture suggest that the Raqchi ruins are sacred for their powerful healing waters. Your entry tickets on us, and our local guide will paint the full picture as we explore the ruins. The Temple of Wiracocha is the pride of the site, and we’ll learn that the ruins were built as a village defence. History lesson complete we’ll head on to Cusco, the next stop of our adventure.
Cusco
Our final leg of the day lands us in Cusco, the hub of ancient Incan culture. This place is a feast for the senses and will call you out for an evening of exploration and maybe even some after dark antics, Cusco style.

DAY 7 - Cusco
Cusco
Another day, another incredible Latin American destination to uncover; today it's sun up 'til sun down in Cusco. Shop for artisan jewellery and woodworks, roam the cobble-stone streets or just stroll the San Pedro markets eating cacao buds and sipping on coca leaf tea. Today really is what you make it as you’re in total control…except for dinner with the crew – that’s on us.
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
City Walking Tour
Visit San Blas Koricancha and San Pedro Market
DAY 8 - Cusco to Sacred Valley
Cusco
Heading out of Cusco and bound for the Sacred Valley on our private coach, this is where our journey into the ruins and mystique of this land truly begins. But first, llamas. An iconic symbol of Peru, we’ll be stopping off at a llama farm to show some love to these furry favourites up close, and we’re talking the whole humpback family – llamas, vicuna and alpacas. #llamaselfie achieved, we’ll then stop off to witness the ancient Incan art of weaving in practise by a group of talented local artisans. Throughout the journey, play close attention to your surrounds – there’s the chance to spot the Incan farming technique of terracing, as well as the ‘salineras’ (salt mines). Want to know what the Peruvians do for fun? You’ll get the chance to play the traditional game of “Sapo”, and exactly what that entails we’ll leave to the imagination…
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Visit Llama Farm
Entry into the Sacred Valley and Pisac ruins
Try some local Chicha de Jora
Sacred Valley
Our explorations of the Sacred Valley will begin with a guided tour of the Pisac and Ollantaytambo ruins. Our Local Guide will give you the d-l on both, visiting the circular terraced Pisac ruins first which date back to the 1400’s. Moving on to Ollantaytambo, base camp for those taking the trek tomorrow, we’ll appease dry mouths with some homemade Chica de Jora brew. This tiny town may be small in geographical terms, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in attitude, with artisan shops and cafes spilling out onto streets, and the roaring Urubamba river providing the perfect natural background noise. For those embarking on the Inca trail tomorrow this is your final chance to stock up on last minute essentials (socks, socks and more socks). For all others, spend your time soaking in the vibes, hanging with other travellers and just getting a feel for this iconic little town.
DAY 9 - Sacred Valley to Aguas Calientes or Inca Trail Trek
Sacred Valley

For those embarking on our epic 1 day trek, we’ll catch the train to KM104 and the start of a day to remember. With just 3.5 hours on foot and 6-kilometres to cover, the enchanting site that awaits us will make it all worthwhile. Descending into the site we’ll take in Wayana Picchu 'Little peak' – the iconic peak you’ll have seen in every picture ever – marvelling at the incredible handiwork of the ancient Incas. Satisfaction levels at an all-time high and with a big ol’ smile on your tired face, we’ll head back to Aguas Calientes and a squishy hotel bed you couldn’t be more deserving of. 


For those not embarking on the Inca Trail, the morning is yours to enjoy the surrounding lush mountains of Aguas Calientes.

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Take the train to the gateway of Machu Picchu
FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Sacred Valley Rafting
Aguas Calientes
Can you feel the excitement mounting? Yep – those are pretty much the feels when Machu Picchu is quite literally on the horizon. This afternoon we’ll hop on the train to Aguas Calientes, a cute town in its own right complete with roaring river, quaint bridges and local haunts, but most famously known as the gateway town to Machu Picchu. We’ll meet up with those who opted for the one day trek, and basically spend the evening hyping each other up for what’s to come tomorrow.
DAY 10 - Machu Picchu to Cusco
Aguas Calientes
Excitement levels at an all-time high, the day we’ve all been waiting for is finally here – it’s Machu Picchu time! Built around 1450 at the height of the Incan Empire, Machu Picchu is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the seven wonders of the new world. We’ll be treated to a guided tour of the site taking in such wonders as the Temple of the Three Windows and Wayana Picchu (the peak you’ll of seen in every Machu Picchu image ever), and of course you’ll have some alone time to explore the area as only you can do. This is one big old tick off the life goals list, so enjoy every single second of it.
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Visit Machu Picchu
Cusco
Back on the train we’ll de-brief on our once-in-a-lifetime experience as we head back to Cusco. Last time round was all about getting acquainted with the city, so now you’ve got you’re bearings you can really get lost amongst the market stalls and cobbled streets, maybe even going truly local by trying out a serving of cuy.
DAY 11 - Depart Cusco
Cusco
Having bonded deeply over the moving spiritual quest time to say our goodbyes. We'll share one last breakfast together before going our separate ways and continuing on to our next adventure - armed with incredible memories that will stay with us for a lifetime.

This is my first South American Contiki, and it was the absolute best! A big part of that was our tour manager, Joel, who is the kindest, craziest, most fun human being on the planet. He worked hard to make sure we all had a great time and made wonderful memories. There was much less me-time on this tour than I expected, but I think it helped to bond us as a group more quickly. I don't know if it was Contiki, Joel, or both, but we saw so much more and made so many stops along the way that I felt like I got a great sense of the country, and that what I paid was a STEAL for all that I saw. The Inca Trail Trek was awesome, and I highly recommend it! The majority of our group went, and only a few people stayed behind. We got lucky and had amazing weather and views the day of the hike, but when we all came back the next day, it was foggy. The people who did not do the hike ALMOST missed out on seeing it because of the fog. The hike itself was amazing. I would call it a moderate hike. It was harder than I expected because Peruvians kept saying it was easy- it's not easy. We had a main guide for the hike, Abel, who is a kind, funny human being, and four assistant guides- Giovanni, Michael, and Herbert, who were also kind and helpful. No one got hurt, no one gave up. The lunch they provided for us on the hike was also surprisingly delicious!

This was my first Contiki and wow did I set the bar high. Not only was the country amazing, the included activities a blast, and the price fair, but my tour manager, Joel, really made this trip. It wouldn't have been the same without him. From the start he let us know we were a family and all 30 travelers fell in line. There were no clicks, we had each other's backs, and really made an imprint on each other. If every Contiki trip is like this I will be back for them all!

A viagem foi incrível, adorei viajar com a Contiki. As atrações e visitações históricas são maravilhosas, o Guia principal o Jhono incrível, extremamente atencioso, super preocupado em passar todo o conteúdo histórico, fazer indicações de bons lugares para comer. Os guias que ajudaram o Jhono também eram incríveis, principalmentenos explicando toda a parte histórica. Pode ter certeza que farei outros...

The good: you have the opportunity to see so much of Peru's amazing landscapes, cultures, cuisines and cities in this perfectly packaged trip; features non-stop adventure and unforgettable experiences from start to finish; the guides are knowledgeable and understanding; the modes of transportation are comfortable and safe; the inclusions and optional activities are all fun, interesting and completely worth the expense! The not-quite-so-good: you might experience a few ice-cold showers; the included meals tend to be lower in quality than the non-included meals; this trip features quite a bit of hotel-hopping, leading to lots of unpacking and repacking (especially during the Cusco-Sacred Valley-Agua Calientes leg of the trip); the Inca Trail permit is a bit steep, but arguably worth the experience; there is a chance that Rainbow Mountain may be snow-covered in winter, but the scenery is still undeniably beautiful; since this trip is such an action-packed adventure, you might need a vacation from your "vacation" ;)

This trip was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! I did not have many expectations but this trip exceeded any expectation I could have had for it! The many opportunities we had on this trip were amazing! We were super lucky and had awesome weather. Everything was perfect! I highly recommend doing the Inca trek. I initially hadn't signed up for it because I thought it would be too much. But I late signed up for it once I got there and let me tell you having to work and hike up to see Machu Picchu is a lifetime experience I will never forget! Tone was awesome and a great tour guide!

Frank, the tour manager was great, he is a native of Cusco and was so passionate about his home country. I’ve traveled internationally several times but never with a group tour. I couldn’t have been happier by choosing Peru for my first group tour. From rooftop drinks in Arequipa, Taquile Island, to Machu Picchu it was all so awesome. You will feel safe the entire time, the hotels are adequate and the people you meet are great. Ok chicos, vamos!
