Peru Tour 9 Days

Visit the Fascinating Ancient Inca Kingdom

Peru is a unique place. Standing in the citadel of Machu Picchu is just an unforgettable experience. This Inca fortress has been internationally voted as one the new Seven Wonders of the World and has been considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1983. But Machu Picchu is not the only place in Peru that has been recognized as something outstanding. Lima is a pulsating city that archives Peru’s history in a fascinating manner. And the islands of Ballestas, commonly referred to as the “Galapagos of Peru” displays some of the ancient animal life and vegetation that lured Darwin to his eventual theories.
So come and join us. It’ll be a blast!

ITINERARY

In the center of the Plaza is a bronze fountain dating from 1560. Located in the Plaza is the Cathedral, with its splendidly carved stalls, the silver covered altars surrounded by fine woodwork, and mosaic covered walls bearing the coats of arms of Lima and Pizarro. Next to the Cathedral is the Archbishop’s Palace. Then we’ll visit the 17th century Monastery of San Francisco, famous for the Sevillian tile work and paneled ceiling in the cloisters. The catacombs under the church and part of the monastery are also well worth seeing. We’ll visit the old colonial streets in the center of the city and the Inquisition Museum. On Lima’s modern side we’ll see the suburbs of San Isidro and Miraflores. Dinner at Jewish Community.

Kashrut on Tours

Only strictly kosher food is provided to our travelers on all our tours. On some of our tours we are able to provide glatt meals. Kashrut is of utmost importance to us and we take special measures to ensure that everything served is kosher.

The meals:

Breakfast is prepared using our utensils. We use local fresh fruits and vegetables, and we use milk products when they are permitted. We use kosher cereals, and bread. We usually serve hard boiled eggs and sometimes scrambled eggs or omelets. At breakfast, we prepare our lunches so that people have their choice as to what they eat for lunch. We bring food from Israel to supplement what is served in the hotel such as cheeses, peanut butter, tuna, etc.
For dinners, we serve either fish or meat (usually chicken) as our main course. In areas where meat is not available nor readily acquired, we will have fish. When possible, we acquire the meat locally from Chabad or other reliable kosher source, and in some cases we fly the meat in from Israel. We try to provide as many meat meals as possible. The main course at dinner is preceded by soup and salad and accompanied by freshly prepared vegetables. Dessert typically consists of fresh fruits.
We do not guarantee Pat Israel and Chalav Israel for all destinations.
In many destinations we have our own dishes and silverware. Where we don’t, we provide disposables at the meals. When we cook in hotel kitchens, we use our own knives, cutting boards, pots and pans, cooking implements and disposable metal trays. All food preparation is done on covered surfaces under the strict supervision of our trained staff/guides who function as our mashgichim.
We make great efforts to assure that our travelers will experience local foods first-hand, while maintaining stringent observance of Kashrut laws on all occasions.
On most of our tours, you will be accompanied by two of our staff members- one a guide for the tour who is knowledgeable about the places you are visiting and will accompany you throughout the day and the second, a person who will deal with the logistics of the tour and provide kashrut supervision in the kitchen.

Hotels:

It is our aim to provide the finest hotel possible in each area we visit. We require our hotels to allow us to work in the kitchen and to supervise the cooking and there are many hotels that are not willing to cooperate. They simply have no desire for us to be “meddling” in their cooking process nor are they happy about our bringing our equipment into their kitchens. We work very hard to find the best hotel in the area that will meet our requirements. Because we are not ready to compromise on kashrut, we may not always be able to use a five star hotel.

Deposit, Cancellation Fees & Policy:

A $500 USD Deposit per person must be received at the time of booking in order to confirm your reservation. Payment in full is due 60 days before departure.
