Short Description

Take the kids with you on this Peruvian tour rich in cultural marvels and outdoor adventures. Travel into the heart of the Incan empire as you fly across the Andes from Lima to Cusco, paddle-board through a lagoon set into the Sacred Valley, and discover the lost city of Machu Picchu. As you visit breathtaking sites, engage with the Quechua locals as you learn how traditional Incan weaving techniques are still used to this day and get treated to an exclusive cooking lesson at a local school. Our carefully crafted, multigenerational itinerary makes sure to be entertaining and informative for all—providing kids with a trip to the ChocoMuseum for chocolatey fun while adults have time to explore the Incan capital of Cusco’s Spanish colonial architecture and history-lined streets. Discover Peru’s many mysteries on this family adventure!

Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.

We’re joined by a woman dedicated to preserving and incorporating the ancient Inca’s weaving techniques as well as pre-Columbian knitting styles. Learn more about her passion and the center’s weaving techniques and dye procedures before enjoying a leisurely evening exploring the Sacred Valley.

Day 4: Community Service - Healthy Breakfast - Aguas Calientes

Meals Included: Breakfast

Accommodation: Machu Picchu Hotel

Get a cooking lesson and help prepare breakfast for local children in today’s incredible service adventure. Begin your day early with a trip to the local marketplace, where your guide helps you purchase a selection of breakfast ingredients in preparation for this morning’s cooking lesson. Engage with the local producers before heading to a nearby local school, where you may interact with the children before heading to the school kitchen to prepare an authentic Peruvian breakfast for the children. Guests also have the option of donating a school materials kit for the children.

Upon arrival and check-in in this evening’s accommodations, discover some fine restaurants and sites on your own.

Day 5: Machu Picchu & Cusco

Travel to the Sanctuary of Machu Picchu this morning and enjoy a full day of exploration as you tour the lost city’s main archeological sites.

Day 6: Cusco City Tour & Choco Museum

Meals Included: Breakfast and Lunch

Accommodation: Cusco Hotel

After a delicious breakfast, we visit some of the fascinating attractions that the city of Cusco has to offer. Visit Cusco's Spanish colonial monuments (including the Main Square) and cathedral, both rich in historical importance and visually striking. Our tour then takes us to the Convent and Church of Santo Domingo, which the Spanish constructed on top of the ancient Incan temple of Koricancha—fabled to have golden walls.

After this "golden" visit we explore the surrounding ruins of Cusco, including Sacsayhuamán. Sacsayhuamán puts Stonehenge to shame with its three overlapping platforms of boulders, each over 360m long. It is thought to be designed as a fortress of sorts. Even if that wasn't its original purpose, there's no denying that Sacsayhuamán was yet another great accomplishment among a long list of others for the Incans.

In the afternoon, tempt your tastebuds with a tour to a chocolate museum, where you can appreciate the different varieties of cacao and their transformation to delicious products. Learn how to prepare chocolate truffles or chocolate candies filled with flavored chocolate ganache. After visiting this delicious museum, return to hotel and enjoy Cusco’s many other adventures.

OPTIONAL: Kids may participate in the chocolate museum activity while parents may visit other destinations.

Day 7: Cusco - Lima - Home

Enjoy a final Peruvian breakfast before traveling to the Cusco airport to catch your return flight home.

They are just great!!!
They have a no-nonsense ambience.
The Dormitory is adequate, very clean and comfortable.
The food was very tasty, homely and had a good variety.
The activities catered to our satisfaction. They are provided with lots of patience. Every staff member is so friendly and they ensure that you enjoy the outing.
We were a family with people from all are groups. They took care of every individual needs. Our aged mother was made very comfortable, and they arranged a chair for her at every activity area.
We spent almost two days and one night. And we enjoyed every moment.
If one is looking for a good outing, this is the place. Total value for money. Above all it's the passion of the staff that makes them better than most places around Bangalore.

Just a couple of weeks ago, our team had been to ‘Eagles Unbound Adventure Camp’ for a team outing. It was one of the best outings that we have had and a lot of credit goes to Mr. Sunil Chris for being the perfect host. He and his team had ensured that every minute detail was taken into consideration and delivered as promised. The fact that the organizers were able to feel the pulse of our team and plan activities accordingly had built the right tone for team bonding. The hygiene and quality of food served was par excellence. I would recommend ‘Eagles Unbound’ to anyone planning a team outing.

Additional Information:

When is the best time to visit Peru?

Weather in Peru varies by region, for the coast (Lima, Ica, Nazca, Mancora, Trujillo) the best time to visit are the months of November to March when it is summer on the coast. In February in particular you have events like Carnaval, a very fun time of year on the coast. You can visit coastal cities during the winter (June to August) but Lima will be fairly overcast and cold as well as some other coastal cities.

For Andean cities such as Cusco, Ayacucho, Huaraz, Puno and Cajamarca the best time to visit is during their dry season which runs from May to September. During this time you can expect warm days and chilly nights and very little rain.

The Amazon Jungles of Peru have two season and they both can be equally rewarding. If seeing lots of birds and mammals (and enjoying a slightly cooler temperature) is your thing, then the December to May might be your best choice. (Remember: Despite being the "rainy" season, the Amazon only gets about 10% more rain than falls in the low water season). If jungle hikes, exotic migratory on their way through Amazonia, still having the chance to see monkeys and other mammals, and going on great fishing expeditions top your list, you might be happier choosing the warmer, low water season (June - November).

What's the weather like in Peru?

The weather in Peru varied; it has 28 of the world's 32 different climates. Generally speaking, May through October is the dry season; November through April is the rainy season, and the wettest months are January through April in the highlands. In mountain areas, roads and trek paths may become impassable. Peru's climate, though, is markedly different among its three vastly different regions. The coast is predominantly arid and mild, the Andean region (highlands) is temperate to cold, and the eastern lowlands are tropically warm and humid.

On the desert coast, summer (Dec-Apr) is hot and dry, with temperatures reaching 77°-95°F or more along the north coast. In winter (May-Oct), temperatures are much milder, though with high humidity. Much of the coast, including Lima, is shrouded in a gray mist called garua. Only the extreme northern beaches are warm enough for swimming.

In the highlands from May to October, rain is scarce. Daytime temperatures reach a warm (68°-77°F, and nights are often quite cold (near freezing), especially in June and July. Rainfall is very abundant from December to March, when temperatures are slightly milder 64°-68°F. The wettest months are January and February. Most mornings are dry, but clouds move in during the afternoon and produce heavy downpours.

Though the Amazon jungle is consistently humid and tropical, with significant rainfall year-round, it, too, experiences two clearly different seasons. During the dry season (May-Oct), temperatures reach 86°-100°F during the day. From November to April, there are frequent rain showers (which last only a few hours at a time), causing the rivers to swell, and temperatures are humid.

Should I purchase travel insurance before my trip?

Travel insurance is recommended to protect your trip as well as your belongings and scheduling should any unforeseen events arise. Guests must provide their own travel insurance. If you decide not to purchase travel insurance then you are directly responsible for your own belongings and wellbeing. Our guides will always be around to help you should any situation arise, however when it comes to paying for any medical expenses or additional flights due to airline cancellations, you will be responsible for these.

What is the currency in Peru?

The currency in Peru is called the Nuevo Sol or just Sol. The current dollar to sol exchange rate is $1 = S/ 3.00
