Embrace Peace...Embrace Culture

 

Peru is a home to a section of Amazon rainforest and Machu Picchu, an ancient Incan city high in the Andes mountains. The region around Machu Picchu, including the Sacred Valley, Inca Trail and colonial city of Cusco, is rich in archaeological sites.

 

On Peru’s arid Pacific coast is Lima, the capital, with a preserved colonial center and important collections of pre-Columbian art.

 

We take you to embrace all of it, plus spend time with local shaman, villagers, and the peoples of Lake Titikaka.
