Tourism in Peru:

If you decide to organize your trip yourself, you won't have obviously enough time to discover the whole country. These pages could perhaps help you in your circuit choice.

Note 1: Evaluations are based on our taste and our personal experiences and there is no obligation.
Note 2: The minimum time needed to do a little tourism is, according to me, one week (not including international transport).
