Wonders of Peru "Land of the Incas"
including Lake Tititcaca and the Amazon

* May 14 - 29, 2018   New Dates - Book Early!!

 Peru is one of our favorite destinations to take groups to each year!  We truly love the people, the culture and the sights.  We know you will love Peru and come home with many wonderful memories and new friends!

When visiting Peru it is important to get the full experience, rather than bits and pieces.

  When comparing Peru programs between Travel Agencies, we strongly encourage you to look at their bottom line price!    Find out what's included, what size of group do they take, what sights are paid for, do you have optional tours to important sights that are extra while on tour, how many meals are included, what type of accommodations are included, how much time do you have at the very special and once-in-a-lifetime visits to Inca sights such as Machu Picchu!    All of these components are absolutely necessary to fully enjoy your Peruvian Experience.  

* Brian Judd Tours offers a special group package for a limited group size of 32  only! 

* We include all sights, with no "extra" sights for more money.
        We include ALL admissions.

* We have a total of 33 meals included in our program. 
        Most tours will only offer breakfast and maybe a dinner or two.  Meals are very expensive in Peru and are at least $20.00 per person.  We have also hand selected only the very best restaurants for you to eat at.  We know that the food is clean and safe to eat! This takes the worry away from you that you could possibly get sick by having to pick a restaurant that you know nothing about.  We go inside their kitchens and make sure that their food preparation, cleanliness and quality is top notch!
      
* Lake Titicaca, Arequipa and the Amazon are all included right from the start! 
          They are not "add-ons" as they are amazing places and should be visited!

* All of our hotels and lodges are the very best Peru has to offer!
          We do not cut corners when it comes to our accomodations! 

* We spend more time at Inca sights than any other Travel Agency. 

* We have a full day at Machu Picchu!  This is very rare to find in Peru Programs.
          * Even with the new restrictions at Machu Picchu we will still have ample time at Machu Picchu and still be able to offer more time at Machu Picchu than any other agency!

* We spend three nights in the Sacred Valley! 
           This will allow you to visit Ollantaytambo and Pisac in two days versus one.
            Enjoy more time, a nicer pace and actually take in the sights rather than
            rush through them, or just have time to visit the markets.

When you compare our Complete Land Package with others you will readily see that our Complete Land Package Price is a BETTER VALUE right from the start.  Others may start low, but by the time you have to add in and add on all the features that are already included in our package they are hundreds if not thousands of dollars more than Brian Judd Tours.   Plus we limit our group to a total size of 32 people, which means we only have one bus and you never feel like you are part of a crowd!   Join us for the trip-of-a-lifetime!!

At Brian Judd Tours we give you more for your money right from the very start!  We offer "Better Quality, Better Value and Better Service!"

* Full Day Machu Picchu Experience
For over 25 years escorting tours to Peru, we have always included one full day in Machu Picchu. Most tours only plan 3 hours at this incredible Inca Site, this is not enough time! This is one of the highlights of the tour and our package gives you the better part of the day, not just three hours which is rushed and not enjoyed!

Daily itinerary below

(B= Breakfast, L= Lunch, D= Dinner)

Our Luxury 5-Star property surrounded by beautiful mountains and right next to the Urubamba River.                              (L)

Day 3 - Sacred Valley * Ollantaytambo Ruins & City

Today we visit the town of Ollantaytambo and the impressive Inca Ruins. During the Inca Empire, Ollantaytambo was the royal estate of Emperor Pachacuti who conquered the region, built the town and a ceremonial center. At the time of the Spanish conquest of Peru it served as a stronghold for Manco Inca Yupanqui, leader of the Inca resistance. After spending the morning at Ollantaytambo Ruins we have a special visit with a local family in town. Learn about their culture and see how they still continue to love in an original Inca home. Walk the streets with our local Expert Peruvian Educators as you learn about the Great Inca Empire. This is a fascinating cultural experience you won't forget! Regain your strength with an included lunch in the Sacred Valley. Later this afternoon return to the hotel and enjoy the beautiful surroundings of the Sacred Valley of the Incas!     (B,L)

Day 4 - Sacred Valley * Pisac Ruins & Town

For many years we have stayed two nights in the Sacred Valley, but after many clients expressing how much they loved the hotel and the Ruins of Ollantaytambo and Pisac, we have decided starting 2015 that we would add one more day to the itinerary and one more night in the Sacred Valley. This will allow us to have more time to enjoy one of the very Best hotels in Peru as well as much more time in Ollantaytambo and Pisac.

Enjoy a full Buffet Breakfast this morning. Today we visit the Pisac Ruins. Most tours only go to Pisac to visit the local market. Trust us when we say you will have PLENTY of time for shopping while in Peru! This morning our expert Peruvian Guides will take us to the Pisac ruins high above the Sacred Valley. The Ruins of Pisac are separated along the mountain ridge into four separate groups: P'isaqa, Inti Watana, Q'allaqasa and Kinchiraqay. We spend the entire morning and early afternoon exploring these fascinating ruins. The Pisac Ruins are considered by many as the second best to Machu Picchu! After an unforgettable morning and introduction into the Inca Culture experience, you'll enjoy lunch at one of the Sacred Valley's finest restaurants! Return to our 5-Star Luxury hotel for the rest of the day at leisure.  Tonight we have a special group dinner planned just for us!  After a wonderful meal including some of Peru's favorite dishes we have a group bon fire and special discussion along the banks of the Urubamba River!                (B,L,D)

Day 5 - Sacred Valley * Executive Vista Dome Train
* Machu Picchu * Aguas Calientes

Today is one of the highlights of the tour as we visit the incomparable Machu Picchu. Early this morning we board our Vista Dome Train with full glass windows & glass ceilings which takes us to the town of Aguas Calientes. After arriving at the charming town we will have some time to drop off what we do not need for the day at our hotel before we board our bus that will take us to Machu Picchu. Most tours only visit Machu Picchu for 3 hours on a day trip from Cusco or Ollantaytambo. In our opinion this is a mistake! A few hours at Machu Picchu is not enough time to fully enjoy and learn about this Majestic City high in the Andes. After taking tours to Peru for over 25 years we know the best ways to fully take advantage of our time in each place. For this reason we spend nearly a full day in Machu Picchu and stay in Aguas Calientes tonight in a deluxe hotel. We have two local Peruvian Educators in Machu Picchu that will guide the group through all the important sights before giving you free time to explore on your own! After a full day enjoying Machu Picchu we will recharge with a group dinner tonight.

Note: Most tours return to Cusco or Ollantaytambo the same day. We stay right in Aguas Calientes only a few minutes walk from the bus station, by doing this you can return to our hotel from Machu Picchu when YOU ARE FINISHED and ready for a rest. Most tours need to rush and leave by mid-afternoon in order to catch the train back. We truly take advantage of our time at Machu Picchu.  (B, Snack lunch on train, D)

Day 6 - Aguas Calientes * Cusco

After breakfast, we board our Train making our way past the famous Inca Trail into the Sacred Valley. We'll board our deluxe air conditioned, restroom equipped bus taking us for a fantastic group lunch before making our way into the city of Cusco. We have a special surprise stop for you en-route! This afternoon we check into our 5-Star Luxury hotel, the Libertador Palacio del Inca for the next two nights. This is one of the premier hotels in Peru. Rest break at the hotel before our special group dinner with a fantastic cultural show!  (B,L,D)

Day 7 - Cusco

Built out of the reed from the lake, these floating islands are an amazing site to see. We'll spend time with one of the local families who will show us how they make the floating islands and teach us about their fascinating culture. You'll have an option to travel by reed boat to another nearby island where we will spend time with the local school children.

Questions on altitude:

We have planned this itinerary to give your body time to acclimatize to the higher elevations in Peru.
