Express tour of Bolivia and Peru




A cultural and adventurous tour through the dramatic landscapes of Bolivia and Peru.

HighlivesPrice: From £1950 per person

The mystical Lake Titicaca forms a natural border between Bolivia and Peru, making these two countries an ideal combination for an introductory tour through the heart of South America. You will travel by train, boat and bus for a truly authentic experience, accompanied by local guides from whom you can learn about the fascinating history of this region.

Start the tour by exploring Sucre and Potosi, two Bolivian cities steeped in history and culture, where you can visit insightful museums and discover the legacy of a region that was once the centre of the Spanish Empire’s mining operations. From there, travel through the stunning, other-worldly landscapes of the Uyuni Salt Flats and journey further to Lake Titicaca, where you can take a boat to the Islands of the Sun and the Moon. Having crossed the border into Peru, you will visit Cusco, with a guided tour of the city and its Inca ruins, then heading deep into the Andean Mountains for the experience of a lifetime – a visit to Machu Picchu, the most iconic and marvellous of all the Incan sites.
