Out Adventures offers two ways to visit Peru.
First, an active adventure, sleeping under the stars on a trek through the Andes towards Machu Picchu. Second, a cultural tour with a splash of luxury and stops in Lima, Cusco, The Amazon and, yes, Machu Picchu.
Today we’re highlighting the latter, offering a preview of the fantastic accommodations you can enjoy on our Peruvian Amazon and Machu Picchu cultural tour.
Cusco isn’t just the beating heart of Peru, it’s also the undisputed cultural coronary of South America. For centuries, the city acted as the capital of the Incan empire before the Spanish arrived and claimed it as their own.
Today, Cusco is a UNESCO World Heritage site attracting just short of two million visitors annually, many of whom are en route to world famous Machu Picchu. While most people only use Cusco as a jumping point to reach the famed ruins, we recommend allowing two days to navigate the cobblestone streets and illogical alleyways of this historic city.
Alejandrina, or Ale (pronounced Alley) guided our second-ever tour in 2009 and has been with us ever since. In fact, this mother-of-two may be why Peru is our number-one destination. Everybody raves about her passion for her country.
We rang Ale in Cusco so she could introduce herself to you.
