Overview & Highlights

Visit Peru's top highlights on this classic escorted group tour. Features Colca Canyon, Lake Titicaca, Cusco and Machu Picchu. You travel in comfort throughout, through mountainous landscapes of never ending variety.

  • Lima: walking tour
  • Colca Canyon: condor spotting
  • Lake Titicaca: boat excursion to the Uros Islands
  • full day luxury train from Puno to Cusco
  • Cusco: city tour and nearby Inca ruins
  • Sacred Valley: tour of the Sacred Valley of the Incas

This is a a fascinating tour through southern Peru, the heartland of the Inca Empire, where plunging canyons and soaring mountains form a spectacular backdrop to ruined temples and fortresses and indigenous markets awash with bold colour.

Stand on the rim of the Colca Canyon as condors soar alongside you and tread a cautious foot on to the floating reed islands on the icy waters of Lake Titicaca. The journey to Cusco is a superb opportunity to drink in the contrasts of the Andean scenery as you descend slowly from the llama-dotted frosted highland prairies to a landscape of small holdings with kitchen gardens and eucalyptus groves on the other side of the watershed.

The adventure continues amid the intricate stonework and cobbled streets of Cusco, the Inca's imperial city, and at the Lost City of Machu Picchu, set on a ridge spur between forested peaks above the River Urubamba, roaring through a tropical canyon.

What our clients say

Machu Picchu. What a privilege to go to such a stunning place. It was a little too busy in the morning, but walking part of the Inca Trail to the Sun Gate in the afternoon, when it had quietened down was an experience I will never forget. The train from Puno to Cusco was also something very special. In fact, most of the trip was just amazing. Well organised and we saw so much that would probably have been impossible as a solo traveller.
