Classic South America Trip Ideas


Accommodations in Peru

Classic Knowmad itineraries include suggested accommodations that are generally ‘4 star’ and a bit more luxurious than our ‘active’ category accommodations. We have handpicked them after inspecting literally hundreds of properties. Knowmad most often suggests smaller, boutique hotels offering charm, a local feeling, and great service.

As a specialist in custom and private South American tours and travel, we are happy to discuss hotel upgrades and options in every category and price range so that your trip is perfect for you.
