Book Any 2013 Peru Trip by December 28 for $1,000 Savings per Couple KEENE, NH â November 8, 2012 â From Machu Picchu and the Amazon to Lake Titicaca and Cuzco, General Tours World Traveler has created six ways to see Peru in 2013, ranging from a five-day private excursion to 14 days on a small group journey of no more than 16 guests.
As the upscale tour operator's most popular destination this year and named in Travel + Leisure's most recent industry review as one of the top 10 current hot spots, Peru is a must visit for its ancient cultures, archaeological wonders and ecological beauty. Whether it's a Galapagos cruise or a private hike up the Inca Trail (new for 2013), guests can save $1,000 per couple on any trip of their choosing when they book by December 28. Four Small Group Peruvian Journeys Four of the six trips offered by General Tours World Traveler, which boasts the industry-leading guarantee of never more than 16 guests on any departure, are small group journeys so travelers enjoy the benefits of exploring lesser-reached corners of Peru that are not open to large tours. These include: • Peru Explorer, nine days from $2,299: An intimate view into the traditions of Peru, this includes spending time in the homes of highland residents of Cuyuni, visiting the rarely-visited town of Urcos to mingle with Andean villagers and rainforest peoples, and traveling deep into the Sacred Valley to meet pottery and weaving artisans. • Grandeur of Peru, ten days from $4,199: This journey offers special visits to several of Peru's significant, yet lesser visited Inca sites â like Maras and the circular terraces of Moray, plus a stay at Titilaka, a new 18-room luxury lodge on a remote private peninsula in Lake Titicaca that is exclusive to General Tours World Traveler. • Machu Picchu & the Galapagos, 14 days from $6,199: On this classic excursion, travelers visit Lima, Cuzco and Machu Picchu before boarding the all-suite M/V Galapagos Explorer II for a four-night cruise featuring eight landing sites on four islands. • Machu Picchu & Posada Amazonas, ten days from $2,999: This expedition showcases the country's stunning diversity by combining Lima, Cuzco, Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley in addition to a two-night stay at the Posada Amazonas eco-lodge deep in the Peruvian Amazon. Three Private Tours including a New Inca Trail Adventure New for 2013, The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu (ten days from $3,399) features a private four-day, 27-mile camping hike on the Inca Trail reaching 14,000 feet. The adventure, during which porters carry all camp gear and cook meals, culminates in a descent into Machu Picchu at sunrise. Five Days in Peru (five days from $1,799) provides sightseeing at one's own pace with a private car, driver and guide. The trip can be personalized beyond Cuzco, the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu and Lima with affordable extensions to Lake Titicaca, the Amazon and more. Like many of its other small group journeys, Grandeur of Peru can also be booked as a private tour any day of the year. General Tours World Traveler also offers a wide variety of FreeStyle Travel options to Peru as well as other parts of South America for custom crafted trips.
