This journey captures the natural and cultural highlights of this extraordinary country. Arrive in the vast metropolis of the capital, Lima, and move on to the arched colonial plazas of Arequipa, Peru’s atmospheric White City, which sits in the desert in the shadow of Volcano Misti. Travel by road up through stark desert scenery to remote Colca Canyon, where a traditional rural lifestyle has been preserved. 

Drive on to the icy, sapphire waters of high-altitude Lake Titicaca. Continue by road to historic Cusco, the former Inca capital with its meticulous Inca stonework and graceful colonial architecture. It’s a short drive to the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Continue by rail through a narrow gorge to the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, set on a mountain saddle above the Urubamba Valley.

What our clients say

97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.

The whole experience was wonderful. Loved every place we went even Buenos Aires which I thought might not appeal. We went to see the Madres de Plaza de Mayo, it was a very moving and emotional experience.
