“For me, Peru is much more than a stamp in my passport. It’s being welcomed like family into Quechua communities, it’s being overwhelmed by incredible vistas in the Sacred Valley and Lake Titicaca, and it’s trekking deep into the Amazon jungle and truly learning about the power of nature. Tourists will come to see Machu Picchu, but travelers come and fall in love with the raw beauty, rich culture, and endless adventures Peru has to offer.”
--Kelly Moynihan, Peru Country Director

I've been on 5 trips with Rustic and my Peru one was one of my favorites. We traveled all over the country, so I was able to experience travel in a way I never had before. The staff was amazing. Kelly was my leader on my first ever Rustic one and on this last one, both times she was amazing. I ended up getting sick and she was there the entire time to make sure I was comfortable and did anything she could to help me feel better. Peru is the most beautiful place I've ever been, and the way that the landscape changes and the friendliness of the people make this a place I'm positive I would return to again.

How can this program be improved?
I wish this program were a little longer just because we were traveling almost every day and it would've been nice to stay in some of the places for longer.
Yes, I recommend
