Get off the beaten path in the highlands of Peru and discover stunning mountain scenery and remote cities few tourists visit. Getting to Cusco is half the adventure—travel by public bus keeps costs down and allows you to connect with the locals in the rarefied mountain air of the Andes. Climb the legendary Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, the 'Lost City of the Incas'. We operate our own treks in Peru and can ensure the fair treatment of our porters—and an exceptional experience for you.
Highlights: Gaze at Andean vistas, experience the culture and mingle with the locals on public buses, conquer the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, sample the seafood in Lima
Volunteer Cuzco Kids (TSPJMN)
Spend two weeks working at a voluntary drop-in centre for children and youth where they can get help with homework, a hot meal and participate in a variety of workshops. Children living in extreme poverty in Cusco are often forced to drop out of school to work or beg on the streets to help support their families. You will be contributing to a project that provides children from poor families with a place to get guidance and support and getting more out of your vacation.
Highlights: Volunteering at a drop in centre for children, participating in workshops like leather working and jewelery making, exploring the cultures and history of Cusco.
