An exciting food scene, ancient civilizations and the full spectrum of landscapes spanning ocean, rainforest, lakes, mountains and desert.
A panoramic view of the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu with its lofty peaks and scattered 15th century ruins set against the light-dappled cloud forest, is already enough to tick the box for the trip-of-a-lifetime.
If you’re going to make a pilgrimage to one of the seven wonders of the world, an expert guide makes all the difference. We’ll make you feel the thrill of the early archaeologists whilst also helping you avert the tourist throngs with the deftness of Indiana Jones dodging a boulder.
Beyond Machu Picchu, there is so much more to explore in this megadiverse country. Stretching from Pacific shores in the west to the Amazonian tributaries in the east, is the best birdwatching on the planet, the second largest portion of the Amazon rainforest after Brazil, snowy peaked sierras that challenge even the hardiest mountaineers, and even world class surfing along 2000km of coastline.
Add to that, ancient enigmas like the Nazca lines and relics of bygone civilizations like the Moche and Chachapoya cultures, plus Lima’s contemporary art, fashion and food scene, and the adventure of a lifetime awaits.
Peru holds the cards for gastronomic, archaeological and historical excellence in the region. Nowhere else in the Americas can give you such a window into the civilizations that existed before the Spanish conquest. Yes, a mist-shrouded Machu Picchu will knock you for six. But wait until you see the rest.
We are winding down after our tour of Buenos Aires at the truly delightful Legado Mitico. Absolutely everything has been perfect and exceeded expectations and we are looking forward to La Bamba tomorrow. But we wanted to especially call to your attention and thank you for our guide in Iguaçu, Tadeu. This gentleman is a warm, knowledgeable and generous soul who totally captivated us and provided us with the experience of a lifetime. The falls took on a spiritual dimension under his guidance, not to mention good fun, smiles and laughter.
Spreading the word
Tom, we have had the most wonderful holiday, quite beautifully organised by you and beautifully looked after wherever we went. Thank you a million times. We will definitely be spreading the Dehouche name about, once back in Scotland!
A Peruvian expedition
I wanted to thank you for a wonderful trip. The guides were excellent and very knowledgeable. Your local staff helped with any issues. All your suggestions were perfect.
I will definitely use you again and recommend you to my friends.
Thank you again.
Guides that became friends
Seeing as I was a solo traveller, both Veronica and Walter helped make my visits to Cusco, the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu memorable and I felt I was traveling with helpful friends rather than disinterested employees. My thanks to both of them for making my visit one that I will remember for a long time!
Full marks Inca Trail
In short, it was excellent. Your suggested itinerary, accommodations, restaurants, etc. were superb. Everything went as planned. We rate the parts of the trip you were responsible for as a 10/10. The guides on the Inca trail were excellent. They were professional, attentive and observant. We would love to travel with Holger and Ceasar again. The tents and food on the trail were excellent also.
Overall, a great experience and we will be telling friends and family about Dehouche's excellent planning and execution for the trip.
