Peru Highlights

By (author) Stewart, Alexander

Peru is a country that enchants millions of visitors every year. In such a diverse country, deciding on whether to concentrate on history and culture, outdoor activities, ancient cultures or wildlife is a challenge for even the most experienced traveller. Full-colour throughout, "Peru Highlights" cuts through the vast array of available material and showcases the best places to visit, the ultimate itineraries and the finest routes to follow. First-hand descriptions of essential sights and wildlife, and contributions on accommodation and travel tips from expert tour operators create both a valuable planning tool for selecting an itinerary and liaising with operators and a colourful companion to take on your trip.
