15 day escorted tour
07 - 21 august 2021
After the long global lock down during the Corona virus pandemic of 2020, and how it has changed our thinking in many ways, we have little desire to visit large busy cities and wander aimlessly around countless buildings, no matter how much they may be a part of the tourism routine. This is why we have again chosen one of our favourite destinations, Peru, for this very special escorted tour in August 2021. Here more than almost anywhere else on the planet, we can reconnect with “Pachamama”, Mother Earth and we welcome the opportunity to restore our minds, bodies and souls as we immerse in the Natural and the Spiritual in this land of the ancient Incas.
Our accommodation will be comfortable and sufficient, rather than luxury, thereby allowing us to experience a more realistic way of life in Peru. But the cuisine and the service will remain first class! And your Tour Leader from Custom Touring will take care of everything, including luggage control and all the tipping.
If you are of like mind as the world of travel returns to the new normal, join us on a tour you will never forget and fall in love, as we have, with a truly unique destination.
(Subject to prevailing travel conditions in 2021.)
