Signature Peru – Chimu Adventures

Written on Sunday, February 12, 2023 by

Starting in Lima, also known as the ‘gastronomical capital of the Americas’, you will eat your way through some of the city’s finest restaurants and experience unexpected gems whilst visiting the historic city centre before flying to the stunning Sacred Valley to learn about local culture and farming practices of the people from the largest pre-Columbian empires, the Incans. The knowledge gained from visiting the sites in this spectacular valley will prepare you for your visit to the iconic Machu Picchu, so you can fully appreciate the history and importance of these famous ruins before being blown away by the majesty that Machu Picchu presents.

Once you have acclimatised, you will journey higher into the mountains to the capital of the ancient Incan Empire – Cusco. Here you will spend three days getting to know this UNESCO World Heritage listed city and its many impressive restaurants, museums and cultural sites. Cusco is a favourite for travellers and three days will give you time to discover why this city is often a highlight on any South American itinerary.

On this all-encompassing personalised itinerary, Chimu will provide travel logistics for your travel party for the duration of your journey, plus expert guides for all the major sightseeing as per itinerary. Each night you will stay in superior accommodation, handpicked by our experienced team for their creature comforts, convenient locations, and impeccable service

Emma’s Peruvian Experience

Peru was like no other place I had encountered. The people were so calming and beautiful. We stayed with a family on Lake Titicaca and they took us to their local dance, it was an incredible experience.

Sitting in a boat surrounded by piranhas, walking through thick forest with many types of animals and insects that I had not seen before and sleeping in a jungle lodge listening to the sounds of the Amazon was certainly an adventure I will remember forever.

Cuzco was stunning. The colours, architecture, the food (I even tried alpaca) and the local people made this one of my favourite cities in South America. Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu, incredible history, scenery, and WOW, it was even better than I had imagined it would be.

I like this itinerary that Chimu has designed as it showcases the best of Peru. It’s also an easy way to experience the Amazon with a short internal flight. Chimu is offering a 10% discount on this small group tour for bookings until 28 Feb. The price is $6656 per person twin share, reduced from $7395 per person twin share.
