Peru Travel Agent Professional

Certainly, Peru never left my heart, and despite the many years in the States, it is refreshing to see that the country has worked on expanding its content offers beyond traditional Macchu Picchu and Cuzco; though these attractions continue to be must-have experiences. Peru now offers destinations for great deep-sea fishing in the North along its beautiful beaches, which are also perfect for surfers. There are opportunities to get involved in experiential tourism, be it with local people in the islands located in Lake Titicaca where you would learn about ancient textile techniques, or learning about coffee growing or safaris in the jungle. Trekking, bird-watching, mountain-climbing, historical tours, new archeological discoveries, spiritual expeditions into the Amazon for Ayahuasca ceremonies are some of the activities you can indulge with. Almost forgot another important one – the exploding Culinary experience. The world has discovered peruvian food and it cannot have enough of it so there are plenty of opportunities to visit both the fancy and not so fancy (equally delicious) destinations to enjoy delicious dishes which portray a fusion of flavor from around the world.

I will never book travel on my own again. Karen was super thorough, always available and always in-touch. She even helped me navigate through a complicated change of itinerary when I became suddenly ill overseas. Thanks for being there Karen!

Great experience. Trip well planned by agent.
Excellent agent. I had no issues with my multi-city itinerary. Relatives coming from different countries (to meet with me in USA) really appreciated how well organized the vacation was.
