Immerse yourself in a journey of a lifetime and experience ‘the real Peru’!
Commencing in Lima this 16 day tour visits archaeological and cultural sites that provide a window into ancient civilisations that, as from the 16th century A.D. were conquered and largely destroyed. We explore the way of life of the early inhabitants; investigate the impact of the Spanish conquest and the subsequent unfolding of the colonial enterprise; and observe how local communities have recovered and continue to recreate themselves today in both rural and urban areas. N.B. This tour does not involve long distance walking.
