Peru is South America’s third largest country; covering 1,285,215 sq. km and can be divided into three distinct geographic regions: Cost, theAndes and the Amazon Jungle. The best known of these is the central high mountain chain of the Andes, with its massive peaks, steep canyons, and extraordinary pre Columbian archaeological sites. Andes are still one of the world’s most unstable mountain ranges; with frequent earthquakes, landslides, and flash floods.
Peru is best known as the heart of the Inca Empire, but it was home to many diverse indigenous cultures long before the Incas arrived. Although there is evidence of human habitation in Peru as long ago as the eighth millennium BC; there is little evidence of organized village life until about 2,500 BC.
It was at about this time that climatic changes in the coastal regions prompted Peru’s early inhabitants to move toward the more fertile interior river valleys. For the next 1500 years. Peruvian civilization developed into a number of organized cultures, including the Chavìn and the Sechìn.

HOW TO BOOK A TOUR

We can also help you with any additional arrangements you may need, such as competitive airfare to your destination, stopovers, pre-trip or post-trip accommodation, or any additional trips you wish to take.
Cash points/ATMs are widely available and are the safest and easiest way to access cash.
Most major credit cards are accepted throughout the region. We recommend that you bring yours along in case you see something special, which you hadn’t budgeted for.
Please note credit cards cannot be used to pay for Optional Activities.
It is advisable you notify your bank or credit card issuing company of your intention to travel as for security reasons, banks and credit card companies sometimes blocks cards when withdrawals are unexpectedly made overseas.
British pounds, Euros and US dollars are easily exchanged in Peru and are an alternative to using ATMs. US dollars cash can also be used for some purchases
There are two USD rates of exchange in Peru, the bank rate and the street rate, and these rates can be significantly different. Banks will buy your USD, but they will rarely be able to give you USD in exchange for another currency. As such, the functioning exchange is the street rate, which is not as favorable if you want to purchase USD.
Therefore, we highly recommend that you bring USD with you to pay for your tours.
Upon arrival to Peru airport it is advisable to cash up about USD100. This will cover any expenditure on your Cusco sightseeing day and give you flexibility until you need to change more money where you can get a better exchange rate.
On your trip you will be given the opportunity to change money at either a bank or hotel.
Based on past experience, we recommend at least Peruvian soles 200 – 500 (approx USD 120 – 150) per day to cover your normal expenses including sightseeing, small souvenir shopping and meals. If you wish to purchase expensive souvenirs, you will need to budget for more, or use your credit cards for these purchases.
Remember, this is a rough figure only and spending habits vary greatly between individuals according to their budget and habits!
Your included meals for the tour are detailed in the ‘Inclusions’ section of this document.
Breakfasts are included every day in all your trips (except on the first morning).

That means you do not have to tip for any of these included services!

For example, you will need to tip at non-included meals when you pay for the meal yourself, even if your Trip Leader has helped organize it, and you will need to tip for anything you do on your free time.
Your Trip Leader can advise you what an appropriate tip amount is. A general rule when tipping is if the service warrants it, tip what you think is a fair amount, and if you do not think so, then do not tip or tip less than normal. Also, do not get bullied into tipping and disregard any comments that you have not given enough.

Questions And Answers
With a host of fun activities, attractions and experiences suitable for travelers of all ages, Peru is a great destination to consider when traveling with friends, family or solo. In addition to this, the royal hospitality and rich traditions of this country make it an excellent learning environment for your little ones. Children are more than welcome wherever they go and families can choose from many types of vacations, be it natural beauty, history or exploring the bustling cities you are looking for.
When it comes to the personal safety and security of your travel group, Peru is probably one of the safest destinations you can consider. With an easily accessible English-speaking audience, getting around is almost never a problem. However, visitors may want to take the basic safety precautions one takes when traveling to any other part of the world. It is best to have a guidebook with you that will help you identify the safest areas to move around and the most hygienic restaurants to explore. International tourists should avoid drinking tap water in Peru and it is recommended that you only buy bottled water during your stay here.
Although the climate here is generically classified as warm and tropical, conditions may vary from region to region. Basically, the winter months are considered between March and November, when the mornings and nights are quite cool. Warm temperatures between April and June can be dry in most regions with dust storms and wet in coastal regions. If you plan to visit the Machu Picchu, the best time to visit is during the winter months.
The good news is Machu Picchu can be visited year-round. The most popular time, and therefore the most crowded, is in June, July and august. Low cloud cover during the dry season from April to October also means cold nights on hiking trails – so make sure to bring some thermals for a good night’s sleep. The wet season takes place from November to March. This is when the temperature rises and the region receives heavy rainfall.
There are accommodation options available in Peru for all budgets and requirements. Whether you’re looking for luxury hotels, western-style chains or budget accommodation like government-owned bungalows and inns, you won’t find a thing here.
