When we ask everyone in the office why they love Peru so much, the list just goes on and on. Maybe it’s the delicious food, the rich cultural heritage, the amazing scenery, towering Andean peaks or dense rainforest or perhaps simply the friendly and inviting people. All in all it’s a fantastic destination to explore with children and we pride ourselves on designing itineraries that will suit every member of the family. Older families will love the experience of Trekking the Inca Trail together and who can’t resist the chance to spend the night in a remote lodge deep in the Amazon? And if you want to see two of South America's most famous & impressive Unesco World Heritage sites, then consider combining Peru's Machu Picchu & Ecuador's Galapagos Islands for a true holiday of a life time.

  • Hi - now back.
    In short it was a great holiday with very very little to fault. Location on Lopud was perfect for family and accommodation was exactly as you said ‘simple’ clean and comfortable hosted by a wonderful friendly local family ...all 1min walk from the front. Great breakfast that was straight from the garden in part and always abundant.
    Our guide Nina was excellent always putting our safety first and adapting the itinerary to suit weather. She was a great host with the two families in our group and went out her way to keep us informed and even take photos to share when we were out on the water.
    Transport arrangements were spot on - always there waiting at airport or ferry! Slight confusion that it wasn’t a TourDust sign but that was quickly solved.
    Kayaking was a great adventure and a challenge some days but worth it for the stops on other islands and opportunities to swim, dive and explore caves. I suspect it could be a long day if your child is too young or not such a ‘water baby’ as once your in the kayak your in it! It is also a hefty bit of exercise on a two person kayak if the child in front isn’t up for paddling! I was fine except on one or two occasions where it was a bit of a struggle and I had to persuade him to do some more paddling for me.
    Finally, your service has been great since we got in touch especially as it was a last minute decision for us to go. The speed in responding to queries on a personal basis and quickly was really great (very unusual these days!)
    All in all a great holiday - my 11 year old had a great adventure he will talk about for years! So will I....

  • We had a fabulous holiday thank you! Everything went very smoothly - accommodation was good, breakfast fantastic! The kayaking was great - really well thought out schedule with plenty of rests and time to relax. Lovely meals out.

    Just wanted to add that our guide Nina was excellent. She worked really hard to ensure the whole trip went smoothly and that we were all happy with the pace, including giving the boys plenty of opportunities for jumping in off the cliffs!!

    All in all a great trip! And all the admin side of things has been very efficient throughout.

    Thank you so much!!

  • Hi, just back home now as stayed in London last night. It was fab! We loved it! Amazing all round- Thankyou. Best holiday ever!!!

    Accommodation great at both places, guides lovely, staff great. We saw more animals than ever expected: giraffes, lion, elephants, water hog, wilder beast, impala, white rhino, crocodiles, hippos in lake Sybia, monkeys in trees at Tonga.

    Beach beautiful, but a bit windy, waves v rough but didn’t deter my boys. We snorkeled which was fab but too rough on day we booked to do ocean experience.

    My boys swam in all pools!!!

    Weather better than we expected!

    Must go and do some laundry, but hope that helps?

    Best Nicola

Highlights of Peru for Families

Our Peru Family Holidays have all been created to expose you to the best that Peru has to offer, but at a pace that is just right for your family. All of our holidays are private and customised just for you. We have developed two itineraries for families wanting to visit Peru. One is for older families wanting to trek the Inca trail and immerse themselves in Incan history and culture, as well as challenging themselves to a days white water rafting on the Urubamba River. Our other holiday is the Incas & Amazon holiday for those not wanting to attempt the trek. Families will still have a chance to visit Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley, but will travel by train. They will then transfer to the rainforest for a fantastic jungle experience. All of our Peru holidays are bespoke, so if you would like to tailor-make your itinerary, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

When to go

The rainy season in both the jungle and the mountains is from November through April. In the mountains, the temperature is mild, but the days will be wet. If you choose to travel to the rainforest at this time, always be prepared for heavy rain that can continue for hours or days. Around 80% of the annual average 3000 mm rainfall occurs during this season.

May - October is a cooler, drier season in both the mountains and the jungle. In the mountains, expect sunny days with cold nights. In the jungle, general weather conditions are warm and humid. The average daytime high is between 78° and 93° F (24° and 31°C) and the average night-time low is between 66° and 78° F (20° and 24°C). Nevertheless between May and September, cold fronts from Argentina can sweep into southwestern Amazonia and push daytime highs down to 50° F (9° C) and the night-time lows to 43° F (5° C).

The peak season for trekking the Inca Trail is June - August when the permits sell out months in advance. The weather at this time is cold at night, but lovely in the days with little rain and plenty of sunshine. The rainy season lasts from November - March and whilst the treks are much quieter, the rain, especially in January & February, can make the trekking harder work.
