Peru

From the majestic Andes to the ancient cultures which have marked this land, Peru has something for everyone. Lima is a cosmopolitan capital bustling with modern life whilst the jungles of the Amazon River capture the imagination with teeming birdlife, flora and fauna including the elusive jaguar. In the south, experience the blue waters of Lake Titicaca home to indigenous Indian cultures that continue to practice an ancient way of life, speculate on the baffling Nazca Lines, see the ancient building techniques of previous civilizations and enjoy the impressive Spanish colonial architecture of Cusco. Of course, no tour to Peru is complete without following the Inca Trail to enigmatic Machu Picchu nestled high amongst the clouds – a fitting climax to this most marvellous country. Pettitts have led the way in designing tailor-made holidays and tours to Peru for over 25 years.
