Gay Peru tourDiscovering an ancient civilization! Spanish conquistadors called Peru part of a “New World” but it turned out to be an incredibly ancient, well-developed civilization. The Incan Empire was the largest in pre-Colombian South America, centered in the Andean Mountain range, which average 13,000 feet above sea level. Among the most impressive features of the once-vast Incan civilization were enormous temples, palaces, fortresses and public works, skillfully erected with a minimum of engineering equipment.

Arrive in Lima, Peru
Plan your arrival for any convenient time today. Your hotel room will be available from 3pm onwards. Many flights from the USA arrive in the late evening, so we have not included any welcome activities today.

You will be met at the airport and transferred to our hotel for a free evening. Please let us know on your reservation form if you would like to arrive a day before (on 19 April) to enjoy more free time in Lima.

After breakfast, embark on a city tour beginning with a visit to the Plaza Mayor, the official center of the city and the original site upon which Lima was founded. Visit the historic Cathedral, an architectural masterpiece. From the Cathedral, walk past the Presidential Palace (where the soldiers guarding the palace offer an excellent photo opportunity) and on to the Church of Santo Domingo.

Then, visit the Larco Herrera Museum, an extensive private collection of pre-Inca ceramics. See also the fascinating Archaeological Museum, showcasing the progression of Peru’s various early civilizations – from the Chavin in 1200 BC to the Incas.

The Sacred Valley gay tour

 

Day 3 - Saturday, April 22, 2023
Fly to Cusco / The Sacred Valley
This morning we take an hour-and-a-half flight from Lima to Cusco.

We plan to take it easy when we arrive due to the sudden change in altitude. We’ll enjoy a leisurely lunch, and then transfer to a lower elevation at The Sacred Valley for two nights to acclimatize.

Along the way we stop at Manos de la Comunidad, a center where South American Camelids (members of the camel family including Llamas, Alpacas, Guanacos and Vicunas) are all bred. Learn about the renowned fibers created from their coats, as well as the ancient weaving techniques which are still practiced to this day.

Meals: Breakfast & Lunch
Hotel: Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba Hotel, The Sacred Valley, 4.5* (Casita Urubamba Room)

Day 4 - Sunday, April 23, 2023
Touring the Sacred Valley
Meet Quechua-speaking farmers and weavers on an inspiring visit to an Andean highland community in the Sacred Valley near the well-known market town and former Inca royal palace of Chinchero. This personal encounter reveals the unique lifestyle and traditions of descendants from the mighty Inca Empire. Explore their village, see and taste the typical food of the area, understand their ancient medical remedies, watch weavers at work, wander into the fields to learn about local agricultural practices and join in a traditional Andean blessing (Pago a la Tierra).

Drive through the valley to the salt pans of Maras (Salineras de Maras) to appreciate a method of salt extraction used since Inca times. From the village of Maras, continue to Moray, a fascinating archaeological site comprising a series of concentric agricultural terraces, some as deep as 150 meters ( 492 feet), while enjoying the magnificent views this part of the Sacred Valley offers.

Machu Picchu gay trip

 

Day 5 - Monday, April 24, 2023
Train to Machu Picchu
Transfer to Ollantaytambo and see the formidable stone structure which sits at the summit of a high peak and was the valley’s main defense. It was the site of the Incas’ greatest victory against the Spanish during the wars of conquest. Below the fortress lies a complete Incan town, also called Ollantaytambo, which is still inhabited to this day with its original architecture and layout preserved.

Here we board the Vistadome train bound for Machu Picchu. We bring with us only an overnight bag (5kg allowed), and the rest of our luggage goes on to our hotel in Cusco where we are reunited with it tomorrow night.

Our late morning arrival in Aguas Calientes allows plenty of time to visit and explore the breathtaking Incan citadel of Machu Picchu. We board a shared bus (per regulations) for the short drive up the mountain. Upon arrival we have a buffet lunch at the Sanctuary Lodge just outside the citadel gates. Then, accompanied by our guide, we explore the city's ruins and feel its pulse as we imagine the lives of the priests, craftsmen, and servants who populated this seemingly uninhabitable citadel.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 7 - Wednesday, April 26, 2023
Cusco
Today, discover Cusco on a city tour beginning at the architecturally-stunning Cathedral on the Plaza de Armas, considered to be one of the most beautiful churches in the Americas. Its construction was influenced by the great Spanish cathedrals of the era, reflecting gothic, renaissance and baroque styles.

Another ornate church is Santo Domingo, a 16th-century Dominican church and convent built on the foundations of the Koricancha, the Incas' principal religious building, dedicated to the worship of the sun.

Next, explore the well-preserved ruins of Sacsayhuaman, a testament to Incan architectural skills and compiled of enormous stones, which were cut and placed together with incredible precision and without any mortar to hold them in place. This ancient fortress overlooks the red-tiled roofs of Cusco and the spectacular surrounding countryside and is where the greatest battle between the Spanish and Incas took place.

Enjoy free time in the afternoon before dinner.

Trip Notes

Entry Requirements
For U.S. citizens, a valid passport with six more months of validity from the date of entry and one blank page required for entry stamp (free visa).

Immunizations & Health
For the safety of our groups, we only accept tour participants who are fully COVID-19 vaccinated, and current with their covid vaccines (including any recommended boosters) as of 4 weeks prior to departure. Proof of vaccination will be required.
(December 2022) It is no longer necessary to present a vaccination card or a negative molecular test when entering or leaving the country.

Exit Requirements
Your airport departure tax will be included in the cost of your international airline ticket. Please check the requirements for entry to your final destination.

Making Travel Arrangements to Peru
Plan your arrival into the Jorge Chavez International Airport in Lima, Peru. The airport code is LIM. Hotel services are paid beginning at 3pm on April 20, 2023, so keep that in mind as you plan your arrival. If you land early in the morning on that day, you will probably want to book an additional night so that your room is ready for you when you reach the hotel.
Schedule your departure from the Rodriguez Ballon International Airport (AQP) in Ariquipa for the evening of April 30, 2023. You have hotel services until 6pm that night. We recommend booking LATAM Airlines #2116 departing AQP at 7:20pm, arriving LIM at 8:45pm, and connecting later that evening to your international flight home.

What to Bring
Temperatures all across Peru are relatively mild. Daytime temperatures in Cusco hover around 66°F, while Lima stays in the mid-70s. April is the tail-end of the wet season, and only sees eight days of rain on average—a significant drop from the previous five months. Please pack light and limit yourself to no more than one suitcase and a carry-on bag. Pack medications in your carry-on just in case your suitcase doesn’t arrive when you do. We suggest leaving expensive jewelry at home!

Money Matters
The official currency of is the Peruvian Nuevo Sol (PEN). Banknotes have denominations of 10, 20, 50, 100 or 200 soles. Coins come in values of 1, 2 and 5 soles, as well as 5, 10, 20 and 50 cents. US dollars are accepted in many stores, restaurants, hotels and service stations. Foreign currency can be exchanged at banks or exchange offices. There are also street “cambistas” who change money, but the transaction cannot be guaranteed. You can find ATMs in almost all cities in the country, and most are connected to the Plus (Visa), Cirrus (MasterCard/Maestro), American Express and other networks. You can take cash out in US dollars or soles, but the exchange rate is often higher.

Tipping Guidelines:
Tipping is customary and expected of foreign tourists by service providers in Peru. We will give group tips at appropriate times throughout the tour, and guidelines concerning this will be sent to you prior to departure.
