Vacation type
This trip is for families only (including any aunts, uncles or cousins who’d like to come along, of course). As long as you’re traveling with a child under the age of 18, you’re a family in our eyes. Plus, unlike other travel companies, children aged 17 years and younger receive a 10% discount off the price of their trip. Traveling our way is a bit like traveling with a group of friends. Made up of 3-5 like-minded families, the kids tend to hit it off on these trips straight away, allowing you to enjoy some well earned R&R. We often find the whole family ends up making friendships with people from all over the world, staying in touch long after the adventure ends.

Our family group sizes are small enough to avoid the crowds and reach some out-of-the-way places, but big enough for a good social mix. Our average group size of 10 allows us to hop aboard local boats, buses or trains, eat at friendly, family-run restaurants and kick back in traditional accommodation and homestays.

We know the biggest challenge on a family trip is keeping the kids entertained. So we’ve planned in advance. Nearly all of our hotels feature pools, and each day has a great mix of action-packed adventure and flexible free time. Your local leader can also suggest activities based on your kid’s hobbies or school curriculum.

Responsible tourism: Family teenager vacation in Peru

On this trip: We stay in locally owned hotels and camps and eat in local restaurants. We travel in small groups and we use a local Peruvian agent, local drivers and a Local Group Leader. This fulfils part of our commitment to make a positive contribution to the local economy and is the best way of ensuring that our money reaches as many people as possible. Local overseas leaders offer a great way to find out more about the local culture, speak the language, understand the day-to-day life around them and help to ‘open doors’ to a fuller experience.

Our agent in Peru operates in a responsible manner and is committed to preserving the area in which they work. For every client traveling on any of our trips to Peru we donate £5 to Plan International, a humanitarian charity that helps children in developing countries to realise their full potential. Plan will use the donations to help fund their project to support under-privileged children in Lima. We will also match any donation made to Plan International by clients traveling with us to Peru (up to a maximum of £10 per person).Whilst in Chinchero we include a village homestay, putting money and mutual understanding into rural Peru.

Responsible code: Being Responsible is at the heart of everything our company does - full details of our code can be found on our website. The local supplier for this trip will promote our responsible travel code throughout your adventure. You will also receive specific information on this trip’s responsibility in your trip notes.

Helping to minimise negative impact: All of our customers are invited to offset their international flight emissions. Contributions go to the Blue Ventures Carbon Offset program, a non-profit organisation which provides solar stoves for subsistence communities in Madagascar, benefiting the people and protecting the environment. We also contribute £2 per person towards offsetting of your in-country travel. We fully offset all emissions from our staff travel and run an energy efficient office.

Giving something back: We have a foundation that collects the funds that you donate to us to support our projects. All our customers are invited to make a £1 per person contribution to the foundation at the time of booking. We will match every contribution that you make with our own £1. You as a customer choose where these funds are used from a shortlist of nominated projects – so it really is YOUR foundation.

Partnerships: As a company we support The Travel Foundation, a UK charity that has been established to promote responsible travel practises throughout the whole of the travel industry. We also work with a number of charity partners who work in the destinations that we visit; including Friends of Conservation and Born Free Foundation. We partner with many small grassroots projects throughout the destinations that we visit - they all share our responsible vision.

1 Reviews of Family teenager vacation in Peru

4 out of 5 stars

Reviewed on 11 Aug 2015 by

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The camping, food and walking through the Sun Gate and seeing Machu Piccu are a few of my many highlights. Our guide, Reni was terrific and the family we travelled with were super. The vacation gradually gears you up for the big trek, you acclimatise in Cusco before exploring the Sacred Valley and attempting the mountain bike ride.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

The accommodation is on the whole fairly basic, with one or two quirky gems, but we weren't expecting the hotel in Agua Calientes to be so dire. As we walked to the end of the railway track after spending three nights camping and desperate for a shower, it was a real let down. It was noisy and uncomfortable with freezing water - but the staff were really helpful.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

There is a benefit to the locals by following the advice of the vacation company and our guide we tipped directly and ate in restaurants that supported their charitable work. The impact to the environment was minimal, we used our own water bottles, took all litter back and followed the rules in order to protect the historical sites.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

It was a fab vacation, non-stop adventure.
