Peruvian cuisine isn’t all about potatoes. You might also have heard that guinea pig is a local delicacy. But there is so much more; and delicious recipes are starting to receive world-wide recognition. Some of the world's best restaurants are in Lima. On this holiday you will visit Peru's highlights including Cusco and Machu Picchu, with visits to markets, vineyards and a couple of cookery lessons built in.
Fusion cookery is à la mode and Peruvian dishes exemplify this so well: a country of immigrants,Peru has evolved a menu of scrumptious meals in which Chinese, Japanese, African, Italian, German, Spanish flavours and textures blend with age-old delicacies conceived by the indigenous populations of the Andes, the desert coast and the Amazon: the choice of ingredients is as wide as the variety of landscapes from which they come.

What our clients say
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
The trip of a lifetime. It was a great privilege to be able to visit somewhere as unique as The Galapagos.
There are two things that we most appreciate about the tours organised by JLA, one is the restricted size of the groups and the other is the quality of the leaders.AF, Alderley Edge
