My brother and I are planning on going to Peru around the end of August this year and as usual we are trying to weigh up going it ourselves or doing a tour. I have done a lot of research into daily budgets for Peru versus the daily amount for a tour and it seems to be cheaper doing it independently. Having said that the Tucan tours are really well priced at the moment. Does anyone have experience doing Peru on their own and could offer any advice? We are used to sorting out our own accommodation, transport etc. It also looks like there are some well-priced and reputable hostels available in Peru. One of my main concerns is also whether it is safe for two people in their 20s to be going around on our own?
