Tauck Bridges adds Mystical Peru to its menu of family-friendly getaways. This eight-day package (from $3,416 person, based on double occupancy) can be booked for departures in June through August.
Families will absorb the local history and culture with visits to Machu Picchu and historical sites in Lima and Cusco as well as participating in hands-on activities such as bracelet-weaving with local school children.
Adventurous activities include a swim with sea lions during a private boat ride, a nature walk in Cusco and a chance to explore the Sacred Valley via horseback. The ChocoMuseo provides a chocolate-making class and, at a traditional Peruvian barbecue, clients will sample local foods that have been wrapped in banana leaves and cooked over hot stones. www.tauck.com
