Peru tours

Mark and David's verdict:

Peru is one of the world’s most exciting - and culturally rich - destinations. As well as exploring the Lost City of Machu Picchu, you’ll discover Spanish colonial towns, the immense peaks of the Andes and the vast Amazonian rainforest. The food is wonderful too.

Exsus says

We have specialised in luxury holidays to South America since we started the company more than 15 years ago – and Peru, with its amazing wealth of options for adventure, culture and luxury, is still one of our favourite destinations for a taste of Latin America. And with British Airways now flying directly from London to Lima, it’s gone up another notch!

  • Easy flights
  • Exciting destination
  • Tailor made private tours

To inspire you, we have put together a number of itineraries that we feel showcase the very best of Peru. However, don’t forget that your holiday will be tailor-made by our team of experts, geared entirely around your interests.

If you relish the great outdoors, our 13-night Where Condors Soar adventure includes hiking to Machu Picchu, mountain biking and rafting in the Sacred Valley and visits to Lima and Cusco. For adrenaline-seeking couples, our 13-night adventure honeymoon takes in Machu Picchu as well as a trek to the hidden ruins of Choquequirao and sand-boarding and surfing on the beaches of Mancora.

Our 10-night private Inca Trail trek takes the classic route to Machu Picchu in style, accompanied by professional guides, with plenty of time to soak up the sweeping Andean views. In the evenings, relax over a meal cooked by your chef, before sleeping under the stars.

For a perfect introduction, our 12-night Flagship Peru holiday takes you in signature Exsus style to Lima, the breathtaking Colca Canyon, Lake Titicaca, colonial Cusco and the secluded Sacred Valley, as well as Machu Picchu.

For romance on a budget, check out our Inca Gold itinerary, which includes all the big hitters.

Every member of the tribe will love our family adventure to Peru, which is packed with memorable excursions such as 4×4 rides and sandboarding in the Paracas desert, river rafting and mountain biking in the Sacred Valley to name a few.

Discover Peru’s dazzling diversity on our 13-night Amazon and Altiplano adventure, which gives you the chance to cruise through the tropical jungles of the Amazon, and enjoy some of the world’s most spectacular and luxurious train journeys on board the Belmond Hiram Bingham and the Belmond Andean Explorer trains.
