Itinerary

Day 1 UK to Lima

Today, make your own way to the airport or be collected by our Private Chauffeur (if you've pre-booked) for your flight to Lima, the 'City of Kings'.

Day 2 Lima

Upon arrival in Lima, the rest of the day is free for you to relax. This evening, get to know your travelling companions over a welcome dinner.

Meals included: D

Day 3 Lima to Sacred Valley

Founded in 1535 by the Spanish Conquistador, Francisco Pizarro, much of Spain's colonial influence can still be seen in Lima. Beautiful squares, fine churches and mansions have changed little since the 17th century. The pre-Inca and Inca artefacts in the city's many museums are also fascinating and you'll have a chance to see them. Later today we will fly to Cuzco. It's important to allow your body time to acclimatise to the high altitude in Peru, so upon arrival in Cuzco we will transfer you to the lower altitude of the Sacred Valley to help do just that. Meals included: B

Day 4 Machu Picchu

The famous ruined city of Machu Picchu was rediscovered by American explorer Hiram Bingham, in 1911. Perched above a steep valley, swathed in dense jungle, and often referred to as the 'Lost City', this is a truly incredible site. We travel to Machu Picchu by narrow gauge railway and take the bus up to mist-shrouded mountain tops and the captivating ruins. A Local Guide will accompany us and be on hand to answer questions. Wandering around the site and exploring the ruins for yourself is one of the greatest ways to experience Machu Picchu. Meals included: B,L

Day 5 Sacred Valley to Cuzco

This morning we will transfer from Sacred Valley to Cuzco. En route, we're going to visit a community centre in Ccaccaccollo to learn how the Planeterra weaving co-operative has impacted the village. Very few communities benefit from tourism and this centre helps maintain a traditional way of life, helping bring back weaving traditions whilst supporting small local communities. Today, more than 55 women are part of the association, constantly learning new methods, whilst also maintaining traditional ones. Women involved the project report that all of their children are now able to study at university, and they are the first generation to be completely literate in Spanish. Learn all about weaving and dyeing techniques used to create traditional garments, and afterwards have the opportunity to purchase them.
Upon arrival in Cuzco, the rest of the day is at leisure. Why not grab a drink in one of the bars and restaurants that surround the Plaza de Armas? Meals included: B

Day 6 Cuzco

Cuzco, the former Inca capital, features a fascinating combination of Inca and colonial architecture in its mansions, churches and cobbled streets. Discover the city on a walking tour today and the surrounding Inca sites, including the mighty ruins of the stone Sacsayhuaman Fortress. This afternoon, we will enjoy a Peruvian cookery and pisco sour making class.

Meals included: B,L

Day 7 Puno

Today we're going to travel to Puno on the shores of Lake Titicaca. We'll travel through magnificent scenery and make several stops en route. First we'll visit Andahuayluillas, where a beautiful 17th century church contains an organ decorated with angels and cherubs. Next we'll call at the ruins of Racchi, and after an included lunch we'll see the archaeological site of Puca-Pucara, before arriving in Puno. Meals included: B,L

Day 8 Lake Titicaca

After an early breakfast, our begin our explorations of Lake Titicaca, which sits at 12,500 feet above sea level, as we set sail for Uros and Taquile. Uros, our first stop, is a group of more than 80 floating reed islands, each inhabited by Uro-Aymara families who build houses out of reed mats. Then, we continue sailing to Taquile. This island is known for its friendly people who still preserve traditional customs and wear traditional dress. Among the highlights are the expertly crafted textiles with symmetric and symbolic patterns, with strong colours that reflect Andean customs and beliefs. Lunch will be served in a local restaurant.
Later, we return to hotel in Puno and head downtown for dinner. Meals included: B,L,D
