(6 Days - Departs Daily on a Private Basis) Lima, Cusco, Machu Picchu
This short introductory tour visits the highlights of Peru and includes personalized private sightseeing and the best luxury hotels in Peru.
Begin in Lima, the cosmopolitan capital of Peru. Enjoy private touring personalized to your interests, such as an insider tour of the impressive historic district (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), a visit to a spectacular pre-Colombian art collection, browsing boutiques and art galleries for high-quality handicrafts, and exploring the city’s food markets. Private cooking lessons, a ceviche-making class and tastings of local specialties can also be arranged, upon request.
Next, fly to Cusco and stay at the city’s most historic and distinguished hotel. During a private tour, learn about the fascinating Incan and Spanish history in the city as you explore the narrow cobblestone streets, markets, galleries, boutiques and the best artisan workshops. If desired, also visit important archaeological sites just outside of the city. Alternatively, take a full-day excursion to the Sacred Valley of the Incas (Urubamba Valley), a beautiful region dotted with indigenous markets, villages, and Inca and pre-Inca sites.
Continue to Machu Picchu and spend one night near the ruins. Your private guide will teach you about the fascinating history of the site and ensure that you have the opportunity to explore the grounds after most tourists have left. Spend the following day exploring the ruins with the option to hike trails to stunning viewpoints around the site before continuing to Cusco on the luxury Hiram Bingham train.
Spend another night in Cusco before flying back to Lima to connect with your onward flight.
