Speak to me of Peru

Jump to last reply

Need opinions about a very basic question: Do we need a tour/guide in Peru?

Background information: We're a couple in our mid-40s, not particularly fit, but we do OK in most situations. We are extensively traveled in Europe, entirely independently, using public transportation and trains or (occasionally) rental cars and staying in small, local hotels.

We did a full-on group tour/river cruise in Russia. We used a series of private guides to see Morocco.

We go to Mexico (not the huge areas) independently at least annually. I have slightly-better-than-a-little-bit of Spanish.

I personally prefer to travel as independently as possible. My husband doesn't mind the tour group scene.

So the question: Do we need a tour and/or guide in Peru, considering that type of background?

Thanks for your insights!
