(based on two people sharing & excluding flights)

Peru / Iguazu Falls / Brazil

  • Machu Picchu

Overview & Highlights

Peru’s highlights and two of Brazil’s top destinations, staying in first class accommodation.  Visit the Andean Inca capital Cusco, the Sacred Valley of the Incas  and jungle-clad Machu Picchu. Fly to tropical Iguazú Falls in Brazil and continue to Rio de Janeiro.

This luxurious private journey captures the natural and cultural highlights of the southern Andes of Peru and the exotic beauty of the Iguazú Falls and Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. Arrive in the vast metropolis of the Peruvian capital, Lima, and move on to historic Cusco, the former Inca capital and a treasure trove of meticulous Inca stonework and graceful colonial architecture. Travel onwards into the fertile Sacred Valley of the Incas and travel by rail alongside a tempestuous river through a narrow gorge leading to the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, set on a sub tropical mountain saddle above the Urubamba Valley. 

Fly across the continent to Brazil where you’ll immediately notice a different culture and pace of life. You arrive at Iguazú Falls, where you will step out of your hotel room at Belmond (ex-Orient Express) Hotel Das Cataratas to a symphony of birdsong and the thunderous roar of water crashing over lofty granite cliffs fringed by tropical rainforest. Explore the falls, walking above, below and even behind some of the 275 cascades, then move on to Rio. You have a couple of days in this exciting outdoor city, including an adventurous jeep tour climbing through rainforest to the peak of Corcovado mountain and the famous statue of Christ.

What our clients say

  • Hotels - Quirky mix of old and modern, loved the contrast. Seaman Journey Galapagos boat was superb, cabin larger than expected. Crew and guide outstanding.

    LO, Ascot
  • Even though I had seen countless photographs of Iguazu Falls and Machu Picchu when I first saw the sights I was reduced to a , 'Wow!' every few minutes.

    FB, Spain
  • Education about the history and current situation of the country.  Also enjoyed seeing many distinct parts of the country less visited by tourists such as Baracoa.

    GW, Crieff
  • Jam packed itinerary with so many great places and sights in such a short time! Iguacu Falls, Rio, La Paz, Cusco, Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu- it really had it all. We had a great tour guide; informative, knowledgeable and extremely personable, with a wealth of knowledge and a genuine passion for South America. Logistics were seamless- first time travelling to South America, first time travelling solo- highly recommend it!

    LM, London
  • A great mixture of the Andes and Galapagos - which covered all the main things I wanted to see. I was worried about sea sickness on the trip - but everything was fine and no-one on the cruise had any problems - just a fantastic visit. I advise anyone interested in wildlife to go - but make sure you do the full 7 days to get the full experience.

    CJ, Watford
  • Cartagena - perfect mix of history, culture, nightlife and beach lazing. Colombian people very friendly and genuinely seemed delighted that we visited their country.
