Our A+ Tour collection features exclusive educational programming and immersive experiences that you can only get through EF–they are rated exceptionally high by educators who travel with us.


Sunlight crests over mountain ruins atop the Andes, the spirited calls of resplendent macaws welcoming its ascent–heralds of another day among hundreds of thousands in the long calendar of Peruvian civilization. In Lima, the nation's capital, you'll get to study architectural gems like the Archbishop's Palace, Lima Cathedral, and the famous Balconies of Lima–whose unique aesthetics seamlessly combine European, African, and South American influences. The heart of your adventure, however, lies in Sacred Valley, where the remnants of the Inca Empire act as your looking glass into life in Pre-Columbian America, grandest of which is Machu Picchu, The Lost City of the Incas. In Urubamba, you'll dive into the world of Peruvian art at the Pablo Seminario ceramics workshop, where ancient motifs and finely honed techniques imbue red-grey Peruvian clay with profound meaning. Finally, through one of EF's exclusive partnerships, you’ll engage in impactful service work that supports economic sustainability, local agriculture, and access to education. Nestled high on the west coast of South America, Peru awaits—its art, its history, and its people are yours discover.
