Visiting Peru and Machu Picchu tops the list of must-visit destinations for many adults. But for kids? Well, let’s just say that the idea of touring a bunch of ancient sites, as archeologically impressive as they are, is a good way to “ruin” a vacation. That is until they get there.

Classic Journeys’ Peru Cultural Walking Adventure is built around the things that both kids and adults want to do. We know because our own kids helped put together the itinerary, which we’ve tweaked after feedback from past guests. This multisport vacation is kid-tested and parent-approved.
