ITINERARY

DAY 1: LIMA ARRIVAL

A GOTOPERU representative will be waiting to greet you as soon as you arrive in Lima. We’re ready to offer world-class treatment for what is bound to be a vacation of a lifetime. Get introduced to the city and then enjoy accommodations on our private shuttle, en route to your hotel.

DAY 2: LIMA CITY TOUR

You will get to view the Pre-Colombian era, Colonial Lima, and modern-day Lima. Get ready, because this two-pronged tour starts rather early.

  • Leg one of the tour starts out a paronamic view over Huaca Pucllana, which is a famous and historic archeological site.
  • Now it’s on to Lima’s Historic Center. This is the location where the city’s historic religious and political buildings can be found. Not only is this a legitimate World Heritage site, certified by UNESCO, but it’s also one of the most well preserved examples on earth of different cultures having significant influence in architecture. The unique architecture of buildings like the Art Museum, The Palace of Justice and The French Palace truly stand as awe inspiring. And the best part about the Historic Center is that there’s always more to see, including the Plaza of San Martin – a historic monument constructed to celebrate the anniversary of Peru’s independence. 
  • The previous locations are mostly shown to you via transport (like a city bus tour, only better). The next locations are actual hands-on visits. So, get off your transport and walk a little, straight to the Plaza Mayor. This is where you’re going to find those awesome historic political and religious buildings, like The Cathedral, City Hall, the Archbishop’s Palace, and the Palace of Government. You will also get to visit the San Francisco Convent Museum and see the catacombs underneath. It’s a total vacation by itself. 
  • Now that the walking is over, hop back on your transport; it’s time to head back to your hotel. Though, on the way, take note of the beautiful panoramic views of Modern Lima. Snap photos and take in the entire skyline of the Financial District in San Isidro, as well as the gorgeous landscape of Miraflores. Feel free to explore further and take advantage of stops along the way, such as the Larcomar cliffs on Lima’s coastline. And don’t forget to get your fill of the delicious Peruvian dishes.

DAY 5: LORD OF SIPAN AND TUCUME TOUR

This travel option is an exclusive private tour that will guide you through some of the most significant archaeological sites in Peru. The first destination of the tour is the site of Tucume. This isn’t simply one pyramid, or even a few; it’s actually an entire small city of pyramids – 26 separate pyramids, all of which are truncated (without tops) yet still stand around 35 meters high on average. These pyramids are from the Lambayeque culture, which was prevalent in the region from 800-1470 AC. 

After visiting these impressive pyramids and learning about the history of the people who created them, it’s off to the Tumbas Reales museum. Rather than dinosaur bones or some other ancient artifacts that can found all over the world, this is a very unique museum. It houses the remains of the Lord of Sipan, his tomb on display to the public. For Latin America in particular, the discovery of this tomb (1987) is considered the most important in many decades. 

After visiting the museum that houses the tomb of Lord Sipan, you’re going to take another journey to the Huaca Rajada site, where the tomb was discovered. You can see many ancient remnants left behind in this location, and you will learn about the people of the time, Lord Sipan himself, and the inner workings of the Mochica hierarchy. 

Pyramids, ancient tombs, and plenty of culture – the trip will conclude with a transfer to the bus station or to a local airport, and you can connect with the next city in Peru.

DAY 6: AREQUIPA ARRIVAL AND CITY TOUR

Your vacation in Arequipa officially begins almost immediately after arriving to your hotel. Take a few moments to get settled in and before you know it would be time for the first part of journey: A city tour of Arequipa.

Arequipa is the largest and most populated city in the Arequipa Region, which means it’s also one of the most heavily visited. Though you won’t have to worry about tons of tourists impeding your progress. Over the years, modern Arequipa has thrived on tourism, and this means that the city is set up for the curious traveler like you. After being recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site, the local government began putting emphasis on protecting the old and constructing the new. The end result is a very accommodating city. The best part about the city, of course, is that you get to tour it!

There are many great things to see and explore during your tour, and here are just a few highlights:

  • A professional, English-speaking guide 
  • A tour of the Plaza de Armas
  • A tour of the Basilica Cathedral and Town Hall
  • A look at the unique architecture of the colonial district
  • Visits to other fantastic sites like the Convent of Santa Catalina
  • And much more 

Although this is a guided tour, it’s a rather abbreviated look at the historic city. This particular GOTOPERU package is about letting you, the vacationer, experience much of the city on your own. After you’re finished with the guided portion of the tour, the rest of the day is yours to explore. Check out sites in more detail, like Santa Catalina. Go view some of the awe-inspiring volcanoes, the breathtaking valley scenery, or just enjoy some world-class cuisine. 

Whatever you do for the rest of the evening and night, just make sure you rest well. When you’ve had your fill of delicious food and are through soaking up the rich culture, head back to your hotel, browse through those awesome photos, and get ready for the next leg of your journey.

DAY 7: COLCA CANYON TOUR (DAY 1)

The first of your two-day tour begins with breakfast in your Arequipa hotel. Pack the necessary gear for your journey, including a camera, and get ready for your tour guide to pick you up. You will start the scenic drive to Colca Canyon. 

This drive is rather lengthy, but it is a huge part of your overall trip. Colca Canyon is to Peru what the Grand Canyon is to the United States, so expect to see a huge river canyon that was carved deeply into the landscape over many thousands of years. Only instead of barren desert, Colca is actually teeming with rich, green life all over the place. You’ll be driving through towns like Chivay, through the Salinas National Reserve, and through the uniquely beautiful plains of Pampas Aguada. 

Keep in mind, too, that you’re not in the valley; you’re actually driving atop the canyon at relatively high altitudes. This gives you the perfect view of the valleys and river below, not to even mention the 360-degree views of the entire landscape. You will view gorgeous marble structures, a wide range of indigenous, unique animals, medicinal plants, exotic fruits, and much more. 

Upon arriving at your Colca Canyon hotel, it’s time to relax. Your trip wasn’t arduous by any stretch of the imagination, but your eyes and jaw undoubtedly hurt at this point. So, enjoy a hot meal and take a dip in the relaxing natural hot springs, one of the region’s most famous features. 

The night ends with an overnight in your hotel.

DAY 8: COLCA CANYON TOUR (DAY 2) AND PUNO ARRIVAL

The second day of your trip begins bright and early with an energizing breakfast. After you’re through eating, your guide will pick you up and whisk you off to the breathtaking vista Cruz del Condor. The entire Colca Canyon region is peppered with these types of vista, but if you want truly majestic views that appear too bright and vivid to be real, Cruz del Condor is the go-to location. As an added bonus, you will take the most scenic route imaginable to get there, allowing you to view the region in all its natural beauty as you arrive. 

You will witness pre-Inca ruins, marvelous volcanoes like Hualca and Ampata, and quaint villages where the residents still live life like they’ve been doing for centuries. Once you arrive atop the vista, you will be almost a full mile above the river’s bottom, giving you a bird’s eye view at the majesty of this ancient kingdom. Take your time, soak up the scenery, and wear those camera batteries out. Once you leave, all you’ll have are your photos and memories; do not take these priceless views for granted. 

The trip to Cruz del Condor actually takes you past over half a dozen separate locations, so this is certainly a full day’s trip. After leaving the vista, it’s time to transfer to Puno.

DAY 9: TOUR OF LAKE TITICACA

Trip highlights include:
•    Tour of the Uros Islands to experience the simple life of the local people.
•    Visit to Taquile Island to get a rare glimpse into Peruvian indigenous culture.
•    Lunch in the town of Luquina.
A boat will take you back to Puno in the afternoon where you can use the rest of the day to shop, tour or rest.

DAY 10: SUN ROAD TOUR PUNO TO CUSCO

Your GOTOPERU representative will come to your hotel and offer you a private transfer to embark on your journey to Cusco.

•    Visit to San Pedro de Andahuaylillas, Sistine Chapel of America.
•    A tour of Raqchi, an archaeological site with public baths, a large aqua duct system and stone terraces.
•    A buffet style lunch break in Sicuani Village.

DAY 11: CUSCO CITY TOUR

When you awake, your vacation starts anew. Now it’s our turn to show you exactly what Cusco, Peru is all about. 

Start your day off with a yummy breakfast of local favorites in your hotel, and take a while to get yourself tour-ready. The evening guided tour will include many great stop-offs, but don’t forget to branch out on your own to see the sights and sounds, explore locations like San Pedro Market, and soak up as much culture as your heart desires. 

Once the evening rolls around, your guided tour will begin. A GOTOPERU rep will pick you up at your hotel and thus your guided adventure starts.

Here are a few of the guided tour spots for day two of your journey:

  • A guided tour of Cusco – Peru’s historic capital 
  • A close-up look at ancient Incan architecture and the region’s Spanish Colonial influences 
  • Visit the world-famous Q’enko – a large, historic amphitheater were ceremonial sacrifices once took place

  • Finally, enjoy visiting Incan tambo, which is the travelers’ rest stop of Puka Pukara 

After this guided tour is over, you will be taken back to your hotel, where you’re free to enjoy the rest of your night. We recommend taking in more of the local culture by visiting some nearby shops, or mingling with the locals. However, you may want to rest up well. 

DAY 12: SACRED VALLEY EXPERIENCE

DAY 3: TRUJILLO ARRIVAL, CHAN CHAN AND HUANCHACO TOUR

Immediately after arriving, you will be picked up by a GOTOPERU representative and transferred in style to your selected in hotel in Trujillo – or in Huanchaco, depending on the specific vacation plans, time of year, and number of reservations.

Your private Trujillo tour will show you Peru like you’ve never seen it before, and like you cannot see anywhere else. Some of the highlights of your tour will include:

  • A private, guided tour of Huaca de la Luna, which is an ancient mud pyramid crafted by the Moche people (between 100 and 750 AC). This pyramid is decorated from heel to tip with various paintings representing Ai-Paec, their god, who is ominously known as the Decapitator. 
  • A visit to the accompanying museum, wherein you will learn all about Ai-Paec, the sacrificial rituals, the customs of the era, the Moche people, and much, much more.
  • A trip to a beautiful, secluded beach town, Huanchaco, where you see how the local fishermen thrive using their ancient craft with boats made out of reed
  • A visit to the capital of the Chimu Dynasty, Chan Chan, and a tour of the largest adobe city (red clay) in the Americas. Plus, a visit to the on-site museum to learn more about the area and culture 
  • A bed-and-breakfast stay at a local hotel 

DAY 4: CHICLAYO ARRIVAL AND HUACA EL BRUJO TOUR

As the capital city of the historic Lambayeque region in northern Peru, Chiclayo has plenty to offer for vacationers of all ages. With this private tour package, you can see the area like you’ve never imagined. A GOTOPERU rep will pick you up and arrange private transport for you from your hotel to Chiclayo. This is about an hour and a half drive, with plenty of breathtaking scenery along the way to keep you busy. 

After reaching Huaca el Brujo, you will instantly realize the trip was more than worth it. This huge adobe (red clay) pyramid was constructed during the reign of the Moche people, which was roughly from 100-750 AC – so, over 1,500 years, give or take. You will see just how well the clay has held up over the years; actually better than some of the famous Incan stones throughout other Peru locations. This pyramid isn’t only beautiful and a feat of architectural genius for the time; it’s also very significant historically speaking. It is where the Lady of Cao lived: The first female emperor of Peru. It is filled with various paintings, in good condition, which depict the Lady of Cao in various stages of rule. 

Huaca el Brujo also has an on-site museum which houses the remains of the empress, something that is exceedingly rare on a world scale. Most emperors, kings and other rulers’ remains are lost to dust over time. 

After seeing the pyramid and visiting the museum, the trip continues to other Chiclayo locations. Some of the places you can expect to see on this tour include:

  • The Chiclayo Center’s herbal market, where even modern-day Shaman still shop to purchase their medicinal herbs
  • The Monsefu shop, where you can pick up a wide range of local items and gifts, most of which are handcrafted by the artisans of the area 
  • Santa Rosa, which is a picturesque, historic location where you can see modern-day fisherman using the same techniques to catch fish that were used thousands of years ago
  • Pimentel, which is a similar fishing village where the fisherman craft their rafts out of reed (totora), as has been done for millennia
  • To cap this tour off perfectly, you will get to stay overnight in a great hotel, and wake up to a delicious breakfast packed with tasty regional items.
