From £7,000 per person

On a family holiday to Peru, where the average cost per person starts from £7,000, you’ll stay in some of the most exclusive and remote properties, with transport planned right to the door, every meal taken care of, and almost all activities and excursions included. By chartering a private plane and booking a couple of nights on a private island, or visiting in the low season and staying in more laid-back accommodation, the price of your trip can be altered.

Here at Journeysmiths, we create individual itineraries tailor-made just for you. When you book with us, we’ll design your dream holiday where you will create memories of a lifetime, benefitting from over 30 years of experience, expert travel advice and preparation, flawless organisation, 24/7 support while you are away, and complete ATOL or TOPP financial protection.

Our worldwide network of longstanding partnerships afford us excellent confidential rates with properties, airlines and service providers. This means the price of your holiday will generally be the same as if you booked every individual element yourself - just without any of the hassle.
