Is This Trip Right for You?
This is an active trip. Our small group covers a lot of ground each day, and we spend four to five hours on our feet during tours. The pace is moderate. Two days require long transfers by shuttle bus. Some of our tours require walking over uneven surfaces or up and down steep slopes. The altitude, of 11,000 feet in Cuzco and 12,400 feet in Puno, may be a consideration for those who have heart conditions or are otherwise affected by height, and is not recommended for people who have difficulty walking. Some hotels in Colca, Puno, Cuzco and Urubamba are built in the traditional local style and have no air-conditioning. During heat waves, these hotels can become uncomfortable, even at higher elevations. This is a Small Group program. For more information, click here.

Journey outside the city to the incredible hillside fortress of Sacsayhuaman. The site is protected by a trio of colossal walls that zigzag alongside each other for more than 1000 feet. From the air, the complex resembles the head of a puma. Later, stop at Kenko, a holy place (huaca) where sacrifices were once held. While here, gain insight into the workings of a shaman (holy man) and tap your foot to the rhythms of a Peruvian panpipe during a private performance. Next, learn about local cuisine during a chef-led cooking demonstration -- enjoy the results of their creations for lunch. End the day at the Almudena cemetery where you learn about local burial customs.
Approximate tour duration is 8 hours.

The Peru trip was excellent. Scenery was spectacular, activities all very interesting. Tour guide Egbert was fantastic and extremely knowledgeable. Felt very well looked after. Accommodations and food were above expectations and very enjoyable. I would highly recommend the tour. Touring at high altitude was arduous but all part of the travel experience.Lynn N. QLD, Australia
Every aspect of the trip was great. Well organized, great tour manager, good accommodations, good food, and amazing country. Overall a very good experience.Madhavi P. Dublin, CA
It was fantastic! I couldn't have been more pleased with our tour manager, accommodations, food, etc. Our entire group was thrilled with our trip and we are making arrangements to travel to Ireland next September. I have already made our reservations and am contacting others in our group so they can make travel arrangements. We couldn't have done it without Gate 1. I would like to commend Rene, our tour manager, and Ernesto, our driver for the excellent service they provided to us. They were so accommodating to our group and had everything well organized. They are definitely an asset to your company and I would highly recommend them. Job well done! Looking forward to our next trip.Paula D. Waynesville, OH
Excellent! Good services, Excellent Hotel. Food is great. Tour Manger and Tour guide mastered their subjects and were very helpful!Dang N. Montreal, Quebec
I thoroughly enjoyed the entire trip to Peru. It was packed with fun, challenging activities & I will be recommending Gate 1 to other people (in fact, I already have). The trip was even more enjoyable due to the expertise of the tour manager, Arturo Espinoza. He was very knowledgable and professional. Arturo was very personable and charming, he was extremely helpful to everyone. He managed to keep the group together & he guided us through every itinerary smoothly. Arturo is a definite asset to the Gate 1 company and our group was lucky to have benefited from his guidance. I'm looking forward to another Discovery Tour in the near future.Susan L. Midvale, UT
We recently had an excellent experience on the Peruvian Legends trip, our second Gate 1 trip. The group of 12 travelers blended well together for a congenial two weeks. Our tour director, Arturo Espinoza, was excellent. He had a vast fund of knowledge about Peru, especially the Cusco and Machu Pichu regions. He was highly organized yet pleasant and helped the group dynamics. He was quick to take initiative on local issues and made us feel very comfortable in his country, Peru. A great trip overall and we will return to Gate ! in the future!Jon H. Shelburne, VT
Was one of the most memorable trips we have ever taken. Our tour guide Rolly was wonderful. Have never been on a tour before & highly recommend if going to Peru to see the highlights this is the way to go & Gate 1 Discovery is incredible.Beverly P. Fernandina, FL
Our trip was fabulous. Pavel, our guide, was the best resource that we ever could have wished for. He gave us so many opportunities to learn about the culture and to meet local people. Keep him happy! He is your best asset in Peru.Kathleen R. Cobourg, Canada
The Peru trip was wonderful. Machu Picchu is amazing and magical place. We had tremendously good, caring and empathetic guide, Jesus.Elena P. Chula Vista, CA
The trip was fabulous -- everything was so well organized and our accommodations were lovely! Our tour manager -- Rogger -- was a really great guy. I loved the small group and will definitely travel with you guys again! I have absolutely no complaints whatsoever.Bonita G. Amarillo, TX
I have so many great things to say about this trip, I don't even know where to begin! First of all, our guide Rene- the best!! I've traveled to many places and I've had many guides, but he is by far one of the best, most compassionate and knowledgable tour guides I've ever had. He made us feel like family. The nature of the Discovery Tour was fantastic. I have traveled with Gate 1 before, and I loved how Discovery went off the typical tourist path and we were able to discover things we otherwise wouldn't have been able to in a larger group. From having lunch and dinner with local families, visiting the school, everything felt very personal and I don't think I've ever interacted with so many locals on a vacation. Amazing trip! Wish I were still there!Louis P. Miami Lakes, FL
We had a great trip, a great guide and wonderful hotels and so much to see. And, as always with travel, we learned a lot about the People and their history.Allen C. Tuckahoe, NJ
It was an amazing trip. We've experienced a lot during it. We enjoyed all the services provided by Gate 1 and for sure will have more trips with your company. We've also told the members in the group about our other Gate 1 trips and they expressed will continue to go with Gate 1 in the future too.Cicely Z. Vienna, VA
