Overview & Highlights

This escorted tour of Peru is full of variety: desert volcanoes, the terraced hillsides of Colca Canyon, snowy Andean mountains. Visit Spanish colonial towns and Machu Picchu. Plunge into the Amazon rainforest and pop into Bolivia’s capital, La Paz, via Lake Titicaca.

This is a comprehensive holiday taking you to all three of Peru’s contrasting natural landscapes: the desert, Andean mountains and the Amazon rainforest. Travel through southern Peru, the heartland of the Inca Empire.

A series of experiences awaits: strolling through the flowery squares of pearl-white colonial Arequipa; driving through the desert on the rim of the Colca Canyon as condors soar alongside; treading a cautious foot on the floating reed islands on the icy waters of Lake Titicaca. Go over the border to La Paz, the highest capital in the world.

The adventure continues amid the intricate stonework and cobbled streets of Cusco, the Inca's imperial city, and at the Lost City of Machu Picchu, set on a ridge spur between forested peaks above the River Urubamba, roaring through a tropical canyon. Finish off your trip with a few days enveloped by bird-filled tropical rainforest in an Amazonian jungle lodge.

  • For me, the Uros Reed Islands. I loved it. The Islands, the boat trip, the people. Incredible. Loved seeing the condors. Loved Cusco and Areequipa. Loved the cable cars. Loved Lake Titicaca. Loved the Sacred Valley. Loved Ollantaytambo.

    WK, Shoreham-by-Sea
  • The many contrasts never ceased to surprise and delight. We enjoyed it all.

    GB, Bristol
  • A wonderful, memorable trip - so happy we chose JLA and the Condor tour - thanks to all the team, and to the tour leader especially. The itinerary was really well thought out and the Bolivia part was an unexpected bonus! This was my first ever visit to Latin America, and our first ever experience of a group tour. I m sure we will be doing both again with JLA.
