(9 Days - Departs Daily on a Private Basis)
Lima, Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, Cusco

Peru has been lauded by many as the gastronomic capital of South America. This exclusive private tour features in-depth private cultural and culinary touring, cooking classes, tasting tours, market visits and reservations at Peru's best restaurants.

Begin in Lima, the cosmopolitan Peruvian capital and the heart of the country's burgeoning food scene.

One day, take a private tasting tour of the city, stopping at a vibrant market and local cafes to sample indigenous produce and local snacks. Learn to make Peru's iconic ceviche (marinated fish) and pisco sour during a private cooking class, and then have lunch at one of Lima’s top restaurants.

Each night, enjoy reservations at Lima's most acclaimed restaurants.

Next, fly to Cusco, and transfer through the beautiful countryside to the Sacred Valley (Urubamba Valley), a river valley with the high peaks of the Andes towering overhead. During private touring with your own guide and driver, experience the best of the local culture, such as visits to indigenous markets and villages, meetings with renowned local weavers, tours of outstanding archaeological sites such as Ollantaytambo and a private cooking class. Perhaps also visit terraced salt evaporation ponds to learn how this natural resource is harvested by local people. One evening, enjoy a traditional pachamanca dinner, in which meat, vegetables and other ingredients are covered and cooked in an underground pit.

Continue to spectacular Machu Picchu, and spend one night near the ruins. With your expert private guide, explore the site and learn about its fascinating history. Also visit a local tea plantation to learn how tea is grown and processed in the region. Also, if desired, visit a local tea plantation to learn how tea is grown and processed in the region.

Return to beautiful Cusco aboard the luxurious Hiram Bingham train. Stay at the city's most exclusive luxury hotel, which is set in a colonial-era palace. During private touring with your guide, walk through Cusco's narrow streets and learn about the city's Inca and Spanish history.
