Overview & Highlights

This short, great value holiday includes Cusco, high in the Andes; the Sacred Valley of the Incas with towering ruined temples; and jungle-clad Machu Picchu.  An excellent choice if you’re short of time or on a budget.

This short private tour of Peru explores the Inca heartland in the Andes, and includes all the main attractions in and around Cusco. After landing in Cusco, you travel onwards by road into the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Next is a rail journey alongside the tempestuous Urubamba river through a narrow gorge leading to the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, set on a mountain saddle above the valley. Conclude the holiday in historic Cusco, the former Inca capital and a treasure trove of meticulous Inca stonework and graceful colonial architecture.

Our Expert's Opinion

For those with limited time who still want to experience the highlights of Peru, this is the perfect trip. We wanted to demonstrate that Peru can be explored in just one week, either as a standalone trip or in combination with other Latin American highlights such as the Galápagos Islands.
