What People Are Saying

"Wow! Purely Peru was our 4th tour with Global Drift and our first in South America. What an amazing journey. Once again the scope and organisation was way above expectations. Highlights where Machu Picchu, Arequipa, llamas and alpacas, community markets, Lake Titicaca, Peruvian hospitality, great food - including alpaca and guinea pig washed down with Inca Cola (and beer), the list goes on. The expertise of our wonderful tour leader, his knowledge and passion for Peru, enthusiasm and sense of humour combined for an extremely well organised, easy paced, cohesive tour"
