Discover Machu Picchu
Machu Picchu is a true wonder of the world, a legendary lost city tucked away high in the Andes. Steeped in mystery and magic, the ancient stones are an evocative testament to the architectural skills of the Incas. But don’t stop there. Peru has so much more to offer, from exquisite colonial cities and indigenous markets to gorgeous landscapes brimming with wildlife and opportunities for adventure. Hike the famous Inca Trail, watch for condors soaring over an Andean canyon, or venture into the Amazon rainforest, one of the most species-rich places on Earth. And most of all, we want you to meet the Peruvians: farmers who will show off their potato crops, weavers who explain their techniques, school children who invite your kids to join in an impromptu soccer game, families who will host you overnight at Lake Titicaca. It’s Peru, your way.

This is not just a slogan - it's the way we do business.
Since its inception in 1988, Myths and Mountains has been a pioneer in the field of customized and solo travel. We know that there's no such thing as "one itinerary fits all," and we're committed to matching your particular trip to your dreams. If none of our existing itineraries are perfect, we're thrilled to create a personalized trip just for you, your friends, and your family.
Our custom trips are not just standard "packages" adjusted to fit your travel dates - they're individually tailored itineraries, as unique as you are. We'll ask you lots of questions designed to help us understand your travel style, budget, interests, and wishes, and then we'll channel all our global connections, in-depth destination knowledge, and decades of travel planning experience into creating an extraordinary adventure filled with unforgettable experiences.
Here's how we will collaborate with you:
2. Talk with us about where you want to go, your timeframe, travel companions, budget, special interests and travel style.
3. We will send a brief sketch and approximate land cost for you to review and suggest changes you would like to see.
4. Based on your feedback, we will rework your itinerary according to your guidelines. Should you wish to talk with previous travelers who have asked us for customized itineraries, we are happy to give you references.
5. Review the new program. If it works, we will ask for a deposit: 25% of the cost usually, 50% if you are 120 days out. At that point, we will confirm all of the reservations and guides, send you a full packet of preliminary information and prepare your formal, personalized, detailed daily itinerary.
After all, it?s your unique vacation. Invite your family. Bring your friends. Dream big. Then call us and let us make your dream a reality.
