How much does it cost?

The Peru Experience 2023

Pushing yourself towards burnout is not #goals.

Why grind if you can’t unwind? You owe it to yourself to hit pause on your hustle and enjoy the fruits of your labor before you are overwhelmed by stress.

Don’t look back on this time of your life and regret not expanding your first-hand experience of the world. Only a few generations ago, the thought of Black people traversing the globe was incomprehensible. Take the trip your ancestors couldn’t, and light the way for those family members who are only beginning to realize their traveling dreams.

You deserve to be unbothered, moisturized, in an exotic place, well-hydrated, and flourishing.

No matter where you travel, our standards are the same.


Connect with amazing people.

We provide the opportunity to make friendships with people who share your worldview and won't ask why you wear a bonnet to sleep.

Experience attentive and authentic hospitality.

Not only is the staff of Up in the Air Life dedicated to making sure your trip is flawlessly executed, but we are also intentional about choosing locales and vendors who celebrate Black travelers

Be pampered with only the best.

There is no need to take a break from your baller lifestyle when you travel with us. Our lodging, excursions, and dining are pure luxury.

Feel safe and secure.

Our experienced American guides and well-maintained local relationships mean that you will have peace of mind when you travel with us.

Say "goodbye" to FOMO.

Our trips are anything but basic. While we make sure you see well-known main attractions, we also develop itineraries that will give you unique stories to share with your friends back home.
