Peru for Kids: Machu Picchu and Beyond

Peru for Kids: Machu Picchu and Beyond

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. -- Travelers asked; Myths and Mountains answered. The new Peru for Kids tour is a heart-touching Peruvian experience combining family-friendly activities, lots of one-on-one interaction with indigenous cultures and hands-on education, featuring Mayan history and archaeology that comes to life in front of your eyes.

Recently voted one of the NEW Seven Wonders of the World, Peru's extraordinary monuments and archeology are known worldwide. At the height of its existence, the Inca Empire was the largest nation on Earth and remains the largest native state to have existed in the western hemisphere. The wealth and sophistication of the legendary Inca people has lured many anthropologists and archaeologists to the Andean nations in a quest to understand the Inca's advanced ways. Your family will tour historic cities and ancient ruins, have a picnic lunch with children from Willoq school, visit villages via horeseback, wander through colorful Indian markets, go river rafting then board a first-class train to Machu Picchu, where you will have ample time to explore the famous site.

Myths and Mountains has also added two very popular extensions that will take your family even deeper into Peruvian life. The company will adjust itineraries based on the ages of children, but does recommend a minimum age of 7.

The 2015 departure dates are July 11 and August 15, but custom dates and prices are available. For more information, visit
