Custom Peru Travel
Put your steps on those of Fitzcarrald, Aguirre, Hiram Bingham, Maria Reiche and many others and go in search of the golden city hidden in the Amazonian jungle, go to discover the magnificence of a city Inca, goview from the sky enigmatic lines in a desert … And this is only the beginning of an adventure! Peru combines our imaginary with hovering flights of condors, llamas and vicuña which are, going to know how, the same family as camels, bears with glasses who do not need, spider monkeys swaying and the shouts of scarlet macaws, with legends of Pachacutepec and Tupac Yupanqui and theirs feats … all tangle … how to pass from bear’s glasses to Yupanqui on a camel … but since Vargas Llosa is declared the master of romantic gush, then everything is possible … why would you not be his disciple? And travelling to this Peru, this land of all wealth and therefore of all desires, this land where disparities geo-socio-cultural are gigantic, your trip will only exacerbate your talents of a modern Indiana Jones and the Llosita which is in you will be, once back home, rewarded by a je ne sais quoi of South America.
