Lose Yourself in the Lost City of Machu Picchu for Less
But while the mountainous valleys, cloud forests and high rainforests are a world away from the landscapes of Australia, it is not as unattainable a destination as some might think, with flights from Sydney to Peru with LAN, Qantas and Aerolineas Argentinas, and additional packaged tours offering fantastic late availability discounts.
Taking in the Machu Picchu archaeological site and Inca civilisation, as well as the floating islands of Lake Titicaca and Cusco's Sacred Valley, the Chimu Adventures' 9-day 'Highlights of Peru' is offering a saving of $400 per person for bookings made before August 31st. Australia's Latin American experts' 9-day tour includes accommodation in 3* hotels, all internal flights, breakfasts and some meals, transfers, day tours and a guided tour of the world-famous Inca site.
The package has daily departures from Lima and is available from the discounted price of AUD $2,155. To book this tour, or any other exciting Chimu Adventures trip, call 1300 678 909 or visit www.chimuadventures.com
For a longer tour of Peru, incorporating the Nazca Lines, Colca Canyon, Arequipa, Lake Titicaca, Cuzco, Inca Trail, Machu Picchu and the Amazon Rainforest, Gap Adventures has a 21-day 'Absolute Peru' tour, departing from Lima and staying in more basic and traditional accommodation which includes home-stays, jungle lodges, guest houses and camping, ideal for travellers wishing to get a more of an 'off-the-beaten track' experience.
The Gap Adventures 21-day tour has 20-25% off the current price of all tours departing before August 31st, making the trip only $2408 (down from $3009). For further information on the 'Absolute Peru' tour visit www.gapadventures.com.au or call 1300 796 618.
