Peru

Peru - South America - Only Once Today

The Republic of Peru is an extremely popular destination in South America. Tons of guided tours are organized in the country and even when traveling solo, you'll encounter them on every street corner and every pretty sight. Destinations like Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca, and Arequipa speak to the imagination. I wanted to go to Machu Picchu since I was a kid and I wasn't the only one, obviously!

A large part of Peru is the vast jungle of the Amazon basin. Towns like Iquitos can only be reached by boat or airplane. The city has roads inside of it, but no road leading to it. Iquitos is the largest city in the world that can not be reached by road. It has become a popular destination in the recent years and is very touristy at the moment. Loads of guided tours can be booked with G Adventures to visit jungle towns like Puerto Maldonado and of course other destinations in Peru.

As a popular tourist destination, common travel scams occur in Peru and it’s a good idea to be aware of the most common ones before taking off. Don't forget to read our tips on bargaining before your trip!
