Signature Peru: The Inca heartland

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 a flight up to the Andes from Lima, 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.
