Thanks for the excellent stay in Cusco, Peru! Everything was fine, from the very first to the last minute; from all the guides, who were always kind and positive, to the drivers. I would highly recommend Machu Travel for its professionalism.

We just returned from our trip to Peru. I cannot tell you how incredible our trip was! We could have done it without them, but I am so incredibly glad we didn't. You could not ask for a better experience! All of our guides were so helpful and educational! Thank you all! I know I am missing someone but great thanks to Deslie for her quick and informative responses to all my emails. Thank you to Sol for helping us and telling us what to expect while we were in Cusco and Puno. Incredible thanks to our guides: Guilermo, Percy, Eddie and Juan. Huge thanks to all the drivers we had... no way we would have been able to pull off what they did. Truly... if you are ever going to Peru... going through Machu Travel Peru should be your go to organization.

First time with SDT on stay put tour to Kinetta Beach Resort and Spa in Kinetta, Greece.
SDT make every effort to make the trip as pleasant and enjoyable as possible. Having a Tour Manager makes everything so much easier, especially in a foreign country. Personally, I found that the price of the tour was money well spent....I paid my monies and they did all the work....awesome

Just back from Newfoundland and Labrador this was our first organized bus trip it was fantastic. We will definitely look into more guided trips that Senior Discovery Tours provided. Our tour manger Michael Morton made the extended bus trip adventures, enjoyable and memorable. Barry was the bus driver we felt very safe during our trip with him in the driver seat. We will never forget our trip to Newfoundland and Labrador.

About Machu Travel Peru

Founded in 2011, the relatively new Machu Travel Peru is dedicated to providing sustainable travels through Peru.

What Makes Them Stand Out?

They create customized itineraries suitable to numerous travel styles. Their guides are passionate and knowledgeable about Peruvian culture and this enthusiasm becomes a part of your tour. You will make your way to Machu Picchu learning of Peruvian history and customs. 

Who Travels With Them?

Travelers interested in learning about Peru from a historical and local perspective. Many of their trips go to Machu Picchu - for which it is advisable to be in generally good shape. 

Where Do They Operate?

They focus in Peru, with emphasis in Cusco and Machu Picchu. 

Why Travel With Them?

Peru is quickly becoming a champion of responsible travel, and Machu Travel Peru is no exception. They work with local rural communities, and are involved in numerous social projects.

About Senior Discovery Tours

Since 1975, Canadian company, Senior Discovery Tours has operated tours for seniors around the world.

What Makes Senior Discovery Tours Stand Out?

Their tours dive into the local life around the world, traveling in comfort and allowing your experience as a senior traveler to be truly exceptional.

Most of their tours include some level of physical activity (mostly walking), but the pace is designed to be manageable for older travelers.

A tour manager will accompany you throughout the tour - there to take care of every detail (such as checking in and out of the hotel and managing transportation) so you have nothing to do but enjoy.

You’ll be visiting classic sites throughout the world, as well as getting an intimate local view through classes and knowledgeable guides.

Who Will Enjoy Traveling with Senior Discovery Tours?

Travelers with Senior Discovery Tours are usually 55+, and almost exclusively Canadian. Tours are designed with seniors in mind, and their typical traveler is physically fit, with the ability to walk short to medium distances. They do offer cruises as well, which are a good option for travelers with limited mobility.

If you are and older traveler interested in meeting like minded travelers, and participating in a fully escorted tour, whether more “on the go” or more relaxed staying in one place, you can probably find something with Senior Discovery Tours.

Top Destinations

They have tours all over the world including Antarctica and the Middle East.

Senior Discovery Tours Travel Style

Senior Discovery Tours travel style is “slow” - multi destination tours typically include at least two days in each spot - rather than rushing through. They also provide “stay put holidays” for those travelers who prefer an even longer amount of time to explore deeper, with a centrally located home base - this is helpful for unpacking only once and relaxing into the destination.

Most meals are included as well on Senior Discovery Tours, so you won’t have to be worried about where to go for the best food options. If you’re the kind of traveler who prefers a lot of free time, Senior Discovery Tours is probably not for you. Free time is included on most itineraries, however in less frequency than you might see on itineraries from other companies.

Why Choose a Tour with Senior Discovery Tours?

For an adventurous travel experience in comfort and operated by knowledgeable guides. If you’re a senior traveler looking to explore farther reaching destinations, but intimidated by logistics, this is the perfect choice. You’ll work with a tour planner to make sure you select the perfect trip for your travel style and interests.
