You’d need a pretty extensive colour wheel to capture the full spectrum of South America. The continent tends to manifest its passion and bravado in visible ways.
There’s that flash of Quechua pink and purple in Peru, a swirl of Argentine crimson or the eye-popping glitter of Rio’s...

Why we love Peru
When you travel to Peru, you’re setting yourself up for a pretty mind-expanding adventure.
You’ve got the Inca Trail to hike, Machu Picchu to explore, guinea pig to eat, poison dart frogs to avoid, pisco sours to consume and the Nazca Lines to get your head around.
And then there’s the Amazon jungle trek, the reed islands of Lake Titicaca, the Andean condors of Colca Canyon and the towns of Arequipa, Puno, Lima and Cusco. Seeing it all with Geckos will be a dream.
Our Peru tours are tailored to make the most out of every moment, which means you’ll be totally satisfied. And if you’re not, it’s probably just because you haven’t eaten enough guinea pig.
Some of our tours in Peru visit high altitudes. Find out more here.
Everyone has the right to feel safe and secure on their trip. We don’t tolerate any form of sexual harassment at Peregrine and Geckos, either between passengers or involving our leaders or local operators. Sexual relationships (consensual or otherwise) between a leader and a passenger are unacceptable. If you ever feel another person is behaving inappropriately please inform us immediately by contacting the emergency contact number detailed in these trip notes.
