It’s one of the most popular destinations in the world for trail-blazers, monument seekers and bucket-listers, but a tour that sells Peru for history and heritage, and not its contemporary culture is missing out on one of the most exciting food cultures in the world.

Gate 1 Travel’s tours of Peru take in both sides of the coin – the historic and the contemporary – in a marriage of revered sights through the Sacred Valley, taking in Machu Picchu and the Nazca Lines, as well as visits to the cosmopolis of the country, Lima, where you’ll find world-revered eats.
