Duration
7 Days
Prices From:
US$ 2,745

Peru is a country that captures the imagination. So why not splash out for the extra comforts as you explore the land of the Incas in detail? Stay in some of the country’s most luxurious hotels, and enjoy complimentary nights in between taking in sights including Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley.


This 7-day luxury trip to Peru welcomes you with some of the country’s most luxurious stays (including some complimentary nights), and a ride aboard the scenic Vistadome train bound for Machu Picchu.

Your adventure starts in the oft-underestimated city of Lima. Embark on a city tour that takes you to the Plaza de Armas, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, then visit the Monastery of San Francisco, home to the world’s largest network of catacombs outside of Paris. Finish with a visit to the Larco Herrera Museum and its famous pre-Columbian art collection, then enjoy dinner on Goway for a taste of Lima’s exceptional dining scene.

Transfer to Cusco the following day, with a tour to get you settled into the Inca capital. This includes nearby ruins including the Sacsayhuaman Fortress. The fusion between Inca and colonial culture remains a part of Cusco to this day. Depart for the Sacred Valley, visiting the Pisac Indian Markets and Ollantaytambo Fortress. See ‘the birthplace of the rainbow’ that is Chincheros, and the Pisac Ruins, known for their advanced irrigation system. The following day here is devoted Moray and the Maras Salt Pools, further evidence of the incredible agricultural techniques the Incas used.

The following day takes you to Peru’s biggest attraction, the awesome ruins of Machu Picchu. Travelling on the Vistadome train, you’ll get a good view of the surrounding mountains before finally coming upon the lost city of the Incas. Your guide will take you for a tour of the ruins to put things into perspective, and tell you about the many theories that shroud the once-hidden city.

Accommodations throughout the trip are of a 5-star standard, ensuring a luxurious place to rest your head as well as an awe-inspiring journey. Some also reveal their own stories, including The Palacio del Inka, a500 year-old mansion in the heart of Cusco that enchants with its vibrant colours and attention-to-detail service.

A full day excursion to the Chincheros and Pisac Indian Markets and the Ollantaytambo Fortress in the heart of the Sacred Valley.

This traditional Andean town is known as 'the birthplace of the rainbow', and it has the full complement of photogenic attractions: Inca ruins, Andean village houses, an elaborate colonial church built on Inca foundations, and of course the lively weekly market. Please note: The main market day is Sunday. Other days the market is open but much smaller in scale.

Then continue down the valley to visit colonial village of Pisac where the Indian Market is one of the town and areas, main features.

You then visit Pisac Ruins which lie atop a hill at the entrance to the valley. It features an irrigation system, an astronomical observatory, and a solar clock and calendar (Intiwatana). Continuing down the valley and ever so slightly lower in altitude you head to the impressive archaeological complex of Ollantaytambo.

Day 5

Moray and Maras Salt Pools

Today you pass through unspoiled and picturesque Andean communities on our way to the Incan agricultural experimental center of Moray, famous for its sunken amphitheatre, made up of four circular terraces, which appear to fade away into the earth like an artificial crater. The site was apparently an Inca agricultural research station filled with fertile earth and watered by a complex irrigation system, designed for experimenting with crops at various altitudes.

Continue onto the impressive Maras salt pools formed by water emerging from a lake inside the mountain in the Urubamba Valley. An amazing view is offered of the evaporating ponds used for the extraction of salt. Learn about ancestral techniques, which are still used, in agricultural, irrigation and salt-recollection tasks, as well as in Andean festivals and rites.

Meal Plan Breakfast
Day 6

Machu Picchu

Enjoy an early breakfast before you are transferred to the train station at Ollyantaytambo in the heart of the Sacred Valley where you board the Vistadome train for the ride through the Urubamba valley to Aguas Calientes and the 'Lost City of the Incas,' Machu Picchu.

On arrival at Aguas Calientes in the valley below the ruins you transfer to a small bus for your trip to the entrance gate of Machu Picchu.
Perched 8,200 feet above the valley, the ruins were hidden by mountains and semi-tropical jungles for 400 years until discovered by Hiram Bingham of Yale University in 1911. Archaeologists believe that the Inca 'Virgins of the Sun' took refuge from the Spanish Conquistadors here. With your guide you tour the ruins.

Lunch is at the Orient Express' Sanctuary Lodge located just a few steps from the Inca citadel. Late afternoon you return by bus to Aguas Calientes to connect with your train back to the Sacred Valley.
