Organized tours in Peru enable travelers to experience a wide range of attractions, landscapes, climates, and cultures. A slew of reputable agencies offer a number of excursions, from scenic day trips around Lake Titicaca (the world's highest navigable lake) to mystical multi-day hikes through Machu Picchu and along the Inca trail. Tours in the Peruvian Amazon explore one of the most bio-diverse areas of the planet, while Andes trips will take you high into the picturesque peaks. Choose an adventure trekking tour, or sit back and take in the sites by bus: there are trips for every spirit of traveler, with expeditions that can include hiking, mountain biking, rafting, culture tours, and even shopping. A wide range of itineraries means there is something to fit all interests, time-frames and budgets. Tours can easily be booked internationally or in all major cities once in Peru.

Andes Tours

The snowcapped peaks and glacial lakes of the Peruvian Andes offer some of the most incredible scenery in the hemisphere, and a wide range of tours cater to both expert mountaineer and novice trekker alike. It is not necessary to be "super fit" to hike in the Andes, but you do need to be of generally good fitness and a regular walker. Tours are rated by level of difficulty and last from a few days to a couple of weeks or more. The majority of Andes tours depart from Huaraz, though trips can be taken from several of the country’s other mountain towns.

Amazon Tours

Amazon tours allow you to explore one of the most bio-diverse areas on the planet. Take a boat trip down the Amazon tributary rivers or stay in an Eco Lodge-or combine the two. Knowledgeable guides take you deep into the rainforest in search of the more than 1,500 species of birds, 2,500 species of fish, and more than 50,000 species of plants. Tours can last anywhere from two days to two weeks and offer a wide range of accommodation options.

Lake Titicaca Tours

Tours of the world's highest navigable lake explore its waters and the traditional communities living on its shores and islands. Trips range from half-day or day excursions to multiple-day tours. Most travel agencies in Puno organize tours of Lake Titicaca.

Inca Trail and Alternative Tours to Machu Picchu

Hiking the Inca Trail is by far one of the most popular activities in Peru, and there are a host of tour possibilities to guide you. There are also a number of alternative treks that are cheaper, quieter, and less quickly booked up than the Inca Trail. Shorter jaunts of a few days touch upon a few sites, while trips of three days to more than a week will take you winding through an array of scenery, altitudes, climates, and ecosystems that range from high Andean plains to dense cloud forest. Many excursions end with a climactic arrival at the breathtaking Machu Picchu site. Most trips leave and return to Cusco, and if you haven't had time to acclimate to high altitudes it may be worth hanging out here for a few days before hitting the trail. Look around: trips vary greatly in levels of difficulty and price.

Organized Tours

There are a number of operators who can provide guided tours of Peru. Many of these are based in the country; check out each city's specific section to find tour operator listings for that area. Alternatively, there are tour operators based in North America, Europe and Australia that offer a variety of tours taking in most of Peru’s main highlights. These companies offer a variety of trips; some take in just one or two destinations, some explore the whole country pretty thoroughly, and others offer multi-country tours, visiting Peru as part of a trip that may cover several countries in South America. These types of tours are often group trips where you will be traveling with a number of others from different countries and backgrounds from all over the world. They are more costly than going it alone, but for those who like to have everything organized upfront, they can be a good option.
