Peru Travel Royal Tour Five...
It will take us to where the Andean condor flies

In Peru Travel Royal Tour Five we are wrapping up the Royal Tour Video Serie, in which former Peruvian President Alejandro Toledo (2001-2006) takes Travel Channel's Chief Correspondent Peter Greenberg to an amazing discovery journey throughout some of Peru's most spectacular tourist destinations.

We have seen Huanchaco fishermen riding waves on straw boats - caballitos de totora - today, as their ancestors did three thousand years ago.

We have visited the Peruvian Amazon jungle: Iquitos and Natal and interacted with the Yahua indian community, experts in blowgun hunting.
