Expert Lowdown - Machu Picchu and Amazon Tour

A trip to the Amazon is all about soaking up the atmosphere, you won’t see large mammals at every turn but if you stand quietly you will see many birds and monkeys going about their daily lives. Don’t miss a nocturnal walk to see the creatures that only come out at night.

Depending on the timings for your international flights there may be time for you to include a Lima city tour or a visit to the fishing village of Pucusana before you fly
