This private luxury tour perfectly combines the best of Peru and Colombia, including top cultural touring and the best luxury accommodations.

Begin in Bogota, the lively, high-altitude capital of Colombia. During private touring with an expert guide and driver, visit the city's most interesting museums and historic neighborhoods. See spectacular ancient gold artifacts at the impressive Museo del Oro (Gold Museum) and work by famed Colombian artist Fernando Botero at the Botero Museum. In the colonial-era La Candelaria district, walk the cobblestone backstreets, and see the ornate interiors of the Church of Santa Clara. Also see important landmarks surrounding Bolivar Square, such as the National Capitol, the Palace of Justice and the Primary Cathedral of Bogota. Visit colorful Paloquemao Market to learn about Colombian produce and sample delicious local fruit and other foods. Also, if desired, ride a cable car or tram up Monserrate, a mountain towering above the city center, for expansive views and a visit to the pilgrimage church on top. Other options include seeing buildings adorned with elaborate graffiti; browsing the boutiques of the affluent Zona Rosa neighborhood; and visiting Quinta de Bolivar, the former house and gardens of Simon Bolivar. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can also arrange private cooking classes, guided hikes in the hills outside Bogota, excursions outside the city to a coffee farm or the Salt Cathedral and tickets to performances at the renowned Teatro Colon.

Conclude in Cartagena, a historic port on the Caribbean Sea and Colombia's most beautiful city. During a private walking tour of the walled Old Town—a UNESCO World Heritage Site—stroll through picturesque cobblestone streets where colorful colonial buildings are draped with bougainvillea. Walk through Plaza Bolivar, a leafy square surrounded by colonial architecture, and perhaps catch sight of Palenquera women wearing vibrant clothing and balancing bowls of fruit on their heads. Visit the colonial-era Church and Monastery of San Pedro Claver, and, if desired, see the Palace of the Inquisition, an attractive building with a grisly past. One day, venture with your private guide and driver to the Castillo San Felipe de Barajas, the mammoth fortress that protected Cartagena from invaders; visit Convento de la Popa, a monastery on the highest point in the city, for panoramas over Cartagena and the harbor; and perhaps explore local neighborhoods, such as Getsemani and Bocagrande. Also enjoy a private rum and chocolate tasting and time to shop for local designs, crafts and fashions at upscale boutiques. One evening, if desired, enjoy a private salsa class. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can also arrange additional activities, such as a private food tour or canoe ride through mangroves; an excursion to the Cartagena Botanical Garden; and a private yacht excursion to the nearby Rosario Islands.

Continue to Lima with an overnight stay in the cosmopolitan Peruvian capital.

Next, fly to Cusco, and transfer to the lower elevation of the Sacred Valley of the Incas (Urubamba Valley) for a two-night stay. Your private guide will ensure you experience the best of the local culture during visits to indigenous markets and villages, gentle walks or hikes to important Inca and pre-Inca sites, and meetings with renowned local weavers. Active touring can also be incorporated, if desired, such as day treks, rafting, horse-back riding or mountain biking. A private Nuevo Andean cooking lesson can also be arranged, upon request.

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.

Continue to Cusco on the luxury Hiram Bingham train. An oxygenated room will be arranged at the city's most historic and distinguished hotel. Your guide will lead you through the narrow cobblestone streets as you learn about the fascinating Incan and Spanish history in the city. During your tour, visit markets, galleries, boutiques and the best artisan workshops. Also opt to see important archaeological sites just outside of the city. In the evenings, enjoy dining reservations at Cusco's top restaurants. Additional activities can also be arranged, upon request, such as a meeting with a local art expert or an evening cultural performance.

On the final day, fly back to Lima where you will be assisted to the international terminal for your onward flight.
