Special Tour announcement:

PERU MISTURA: September 2015 (click for more info)
A Cultural and Culinary Exploration in Peru and the 2015 Mistura festival!
Like the Spanish word "mistura", which means mixture, this small group, private tour mixes cultures, cuisines, and geography.

The unique trip is designed by anthropologist Charlie Strader, President of Explorations. His love and appreciation of Peru’s cultures and food diversity started with travels there in the 1980’s. Having traveled throughout Peru, he wanted to plan a special cultural, natural history, and food-focused itinerary that also included the incredible gastronomy fair in Lima, called Mistura! During cultural adventure, resident guides introduce the cultures of Peru, their environment, history, art and foods. You will experience why National Geographic named Peru the "next Foodie Frontier" in their Best of the World for 2012.
