Peru Escape with Nazca Lines (K2Q)

9 Day Package from Lima to Lima

2021 Tour Details

Escape to Peru with a 9-day adventure from its valleys to mountaintops. Discover Peru’s Nazca Lines giving a whole new meaning to drawing a line in the sand. Flightseeing is the best way to see these massive geoglyphs etched into the desert— where the ancient Nazca people likely performed spiritual ceremonies. Get up close and personal with llamas and alpacas in the Sacred Valley, and get more than you bargained for in colorful textiles and treasures at Pisac’s famous market. Journey by train through the Urubamba Valley and spend two days exploring the lofty “Lost City of the Incas”—Machu Picchu. Dig deeper into ancient Peru with visits to the Incan temple of Sacsayhuaman, as well as cathedrals of Spanish conquistadores. Enter this Incan empire of the past and please the palate with a taste of Peruvian classics in Cusco. Meet the locals who weave magic upon their looms and be won over by the warmth and hospitality of the Peruvian people.

 Tour Director

With GLOBUS, there’s no better way to get to know your destination than through the eyes of a Tour Director. We’d like you to meet one of our Tour Directors, who average over a decade of experience and are representative of the type of expert that will be with you on your vacation.

MAURICIO YONFA-ESTUARDO

Escorting tours for more than 15 years

Born in Venezuela and raised in Ecuador, I'm an architect by profession, but a Tour Director by heart. I have worked as a South America lecturer for cruise lines, a guide in Ecuador and the Galápagos, and a Tour Director in South America. My goals are to transform each guest into a Peruvian expert and to encourage them to try and appreciate authentic Incan food. So, let's discover together the mysterious land of the Incas and maybe even sample roasted guinea pig!
