What You’ll Love...

The Accommodation – Stay in five-star hotels that combine history, luxury and well-being

Your Peruvian adventure starts in the fashionable Miraflores district of Lima, with a stay at the contemporary AC Hotel Miraflores by Marriott, boasting exquisite facilities as well as stunning views of the Pacific Ocean.

Continue to Cusco and the Sacred Valley of the Incas where you will experience a lavish stay at the award winning Aranwa Sacred Valley boutique hotel, a 17th-century colonial hacienda built along the Vilcanota riverbank, beautifully decorated with both colonial and modern style.

After a memorable day exploring Machu Picchu, retreat to the Sumaq Hotel Machu Picchu, winner of Peru’s Leading Luxury Boutique Hotel at the 2018 World Travel Awards.

Your final leg of the journey will see you staying in the heart of Cusco, at the artsy Aranwa Cusco, a heritage boutique property boasting an impressive collection of over 300 pieces of paintings and sculptures, together with beautiful colonial furniture and fine gold and silverware.

The Experiences – Fascinating cities, UNESCO-listed sites and one of the seven wonders of the world awaits

Begin this extraordinary tour with a visit to Lima’s colonial city centre, with its historic buildings surrounding the splendid Plaza Mayor. Tick Lima’s famous sites off your list including the Government Palace, Cathedral and the wondrous Convent of San Francisco with its priceless pieces of art and famed catacombs.

Explore the country’s intricate heritage at the Larco Herrera Museum. This beautiful building was originally a Republican mansion built on the foundations of a pre-Inca temple. You’ll have access to this 45,000-piece private collection that once belonged to Don Rafael Larco Hoyle.

A short flight will take you from Lima to Cuzco, the ancient capital of the Inca Empire and the oldest continuously inhabited city in South America. Take in the gorgeous panoramas of rugged mountains as you travel through the roads dotted with farms and small villages. Here you will discover Chinchero, Maras and the archaeological site of Moray – an agricultural centre demonstrating the ancient Incan’s mastery of high-altitude crop growing.

Dominated by two massive Inca ruins – including an impressive fortress, the streets of the charming village of Ollantaytambo have been inhabited since the 13th century. An ancient complex of temples and terraces towering high over the valley, this village was the last stand of the Incas in their defence against the Spanish conquistadors.

Stand in awe as the ruins of Machu Picchu appear through the mist and retrace the steps of the Incas as you visit the spectacular “Lost City”. Listed by UNESCO as one of the ‘Seven Wonders of the Modern World', Machu Picchu is arguably the most iconic site in Peru (if not the Inca civilisation). Get to know this location with visits to the Temple of the Sun, the House of the Priest, the Sacred Plaza and more while exploring the various compounds and witnessing the breathtaking views of the nearby peaks.

Enjoy an unforgettable dinner on board the luxurious Belmond Hiram Bingham Train, taking you from Machu Picchu to Cusco through misty peaks and lush natural landscapes in pure luxury.
