Hi! I would like to have some advice about taking a 12-day tour to Peru. I have contact a travel agency in Lima and they have offered me a Lima-Cuzco-Puno tour including Machu Pichu plus the airtickets from Lima to Cuzco and Puno to Lima for 900 Euros. Although it seems that the hotels are nice tourist class establishments, I find it a bit pricey. Has anyone taken a tour of this kind recently? I would appreciate your comments. Regards.
It will depend , For Example Hotels Star , what cities will u visit?,if breakfast or lunch is included.
But i think that 900 euros is expensive.
Good luck in Peru!
you could do it ALOT cheaper if you took buses and booked tours yourself...
put it this way. If i had 900 euros to spend in Peru I would stretch it to 6 weeks and see a hell of a lot more
Hello Justin! I had the chance to take a 15 day/14 nite tour with Peruinteract last year and I paid around 1200 US (around 800 EUR) it included 2 days in Lima, 2 days in Nazca (Paracas and Nazca Lines), 2 in Arequipa, 1 in Colca, 3 in Puno (Lake Titicaca), 4 in Cusco and 1 in Sacred Valley (+ MachuPichiu of course). Hotels were nice economy class but not the cheapest, they were safe and clean, good beds, appropriate for resting and not merely sleeping I'd say. The way in from Lima to Arequipa was done in the first class 2 level Cruzero type buses and from Colca to Cusco in other tourist class buses, both comfortable and adequate for newby tourists. The return was by LAN air. Also breakfasts and some other meals were included (I especially enjoyed the dinner in Arequipa and the buffet lunch in Sacred Valley). Of course the best experience is left for the very last and that was the visit to MP. About Lima, well I guess it is ok for a large Southamerican city, the city tour was enjoyable and it was too short of a time to get to know it better. My conclusion is that you can get a better price and expect quality services that will assure you an enjoyable visit to Peru. Write to me if you wish more details about my experience. Elton the Brit.
