For most tourists, Peru equals Machu Picchu, but this country has so much more to offer! From a warm desert coast to towering Andean peaks and a lush and diverse jungle – Peru has anything an adventure traveler could want. Peru tours with Keteka help you dive into a new culture and gain a new perspective. From seeing Machu Picchu with a host family to geocaching in the Yanamarca valley, you will be sure to experience a different way of life.
If you’re heading to Lima, our Culture, Food and Wine tour is a great introduction into Peruvian culture. After spending time in Lima, you head to the Amazon and have the opportunity to ride the Peruvian paso horse, which is known to be one of the smoothest riding horses in the world. If Machu Picchu is what you’re looking for, we have multiple tours to help you enjoy one of the new seven wonders of the world. If you love hiking and want stunning views, we have the Ausangate trek. Starting in Cusco, this 6 day trek has amazing scenery – think camp at a high Andean flat-land surrounded by snow-capped mountains. If a food tour is more your speed, be sure to catch our day tour in Lima with local markets and Peruvian ceviche.
Peru has a rich history as the origin and capital of the Incan Empire. From Cusco’s valley, the Incans rose to become the largest pre-Columbian empire in the new world. With impressive tiers of stone-work agricultural terraces that are still evident on mountainsides, it’s easy to imagine the power and influence of the Empire. Still today, Incan culture influences are apparent, especially in indigenous communities. Peru has 43 native languages, but don’t worry – you can still get by with Spanish. While Spanish is the official and most common language, Quechua and Aimara are very common in Andean regions, and Shipibo, Ashaninka and Aguaruna are common in the Amazon. In all languages, though, ceviche is the same. Be sure to eat your fill, as Peru is known for delicious ceviche.
