Private Journey


This short private tour of Peru explores the Inca heartland in the Andes, and includes all the main attractions in and around Cusco. After landing in Cusco, you travel onwards by road into the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Next is a rail journey alongside the tempestuous Urubamba river through a narrow gorge leading to the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, set on a mountain saddle above the valley. Conclude the holiday in historic Cusco, the former Inca capital and a treasure trove of meticulous Inca stonework and graceful colonial architecture.

What our experts say

This is the perfect trip for people who are short of time but want to see the highlights of Peru. We wanted to show that Peru can be visited in a week – either as a trip in its own right or combined with other Latin America highlights like the Galápagos.
