Recently named the world's leading culinary destination, this small group tour offers a fascinating revelation into the extraordinary cuisine and rich culture of Peru.


Peru was recently awarded the World´s leading culinary destination by the World Travel Awards and Lima is without doubt the food capital of South America. Amazing biodiversity, a ridiculously huge variety of local ingredients, pre-Columbian and Spanish culinary traditions mixed with the creativity of local chefs and influences from all over the world are some of the elements still building an extraordinary local cuisine.

Peru was once the centre of the biggest pre-Columbian civilisation (the Inca Empire) and Lima was the capital of the Spanish Colony in South America for almost 300 years. These two factors are significant in understanding the development of such a refined cuisine and also in making Peru an incredible destination in terms of history, culture, art and tradition.

Staying in superb boutique properties we will explore Lima, the Sacred Valley, the ancient Incan capital of Cusco and the World Heritage citadel of Machu Picchu discovering the rich culinary and cultural heritage of Peru’s indigenous and colonial past. We dine in some of the finest restaurants Lima, Cusco and the Sacred Valley have to offer. The diversity of these stunning restaurants and food experiences is true testament to the astonishing produce and extraordinary talents of Peru’s culinary community.

If you are looking for an immersive cultural and culinary experience, this tour is your opportunity to embrace the incredible destination that is Peru.

This trip can include an extension to the Peruvian Amazon, the Galapagos in Ecuador or Patagonia in Chile.

Our story “Why we love Peru” gives a much broader perspective on Peru’s complexity as a country beyond the hyper focus on Machu Picchu.

GuestStories

  • “The Epicurious travel tour of Peru was perfect and exactly what I had been looking for. I had wanted to taste the foods of Peru, to learn something of the country’s history and to see the landscape, all of which this trip did for me. The tour was worth it for the culinary aspect alone, but it also took in many cultural and natural highlights. The hotels, guides, vehicles and so on were all spot on, with no hitches. Jennifer makes a very entertaining host and it’s obvious that she does her research and makes her arrangements within each country very carefully, making the holiday very relaxed from the client’s point of view. If you’re seeking a foodie holiday in a very different country, then this tour is perfect.”
