Wonders of Peru

Duration
7 Days
Prices From:
US$ 1,150

MODERATE | SMALL GROUP: Spend some time in cosmopolitan Lima, enjoying the vibrant energy and fantastic cuisine. A stop in culture-rich Cusco and the Sacred Valley is the perfect lead up to a visit to the ancient Incan citadel of Machu Picchu, a top highlight on any trip to wondrous Peru.


This 7-day Peru vacation starts in Lima, one of South America’s oldest colonial cities. Then discover life before the Conquistadores, visiting the Sacred Valley, Cusco, and Machu Picchu.

Often unfairly dismissed as a mere entry and exit point for Peru, Lima offers much more to any visitor willing to explore its historic streets. You’ll visit Miraflores, a popular tourist area, plus the Historical Centre, Main Square, the Palaces of the government and Archbishop, and Huaca Huallamarca, a pyramid that even predates the Incas. You’ll also visit the Santo Domingo Convent, and tour the Archbishop’s Palace, which is filled with art works dating back as far as the 1500’s.

Fly to Cusco and transfer to the Sacred Valley of the Incas. After some time to acclimatise to the altitude, take a full day to explore Chincheros and Ollantaytambo. In Chincheros, immerse yourself in local culture, admiring Inca ruins, Andean village houses, and the colourful local market. Visiting the citadel of Ollantaytambo, let your imagination take you back to the Inca’s only known victory against a Spanish siege.

Time to visit the centrepiece of your trip, majestic Machu Picchu. This Inca city lay abandoned and unseen by outsiders for centuries, until its rediscovery in the early 20th century. Today, it is one of the world’s ‘must-see’ attractions, but this has diminished none of its mystery or wonder. The scenic Vistadome Train takes you Aguas Calientes, where you’ll transfer to a shuttle bus to visit the main site. Your tour takes you through the ruins in detail, uncovering their original functions and stories – at least, the ones we know so far. There are still many questions surrounding Machu Picchu, and you’ll have plenty of time to contemplate them before returning to Cusco.

Take a day at leisure in Cusco, the former capital of the Inca world and one of South America’s great cultural destinations, before returning to Lima for your departing flight.

Day 4

From Cusco to the Sacred Valley

On your way from Cusco and into the heart of the Sacred Valley you will stop in the town of Chinchero to visit the PARWA Center, where you can appreciate beautiful textiles and perhaps buy some to take home. After, visit the Chinchero church, which was built by the Spanish in 1607 and remains standing today. Continue with a visit to the ruins of Chinchero, where you will find an important Inca center in which terraces and aqueducts were built. Then, carry on to the Racchi Viewpoint, from which you can enjoy a panoramic view of the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Lunch will be served at a local restaurant. Afterward, the tour heads toward the town of Ollantaytambo, where you will find the imposing Inca fortress that bears the same name. This place is of great historical importance because it is where Manco Inca defeated the Spanish forces in 1538. Then, you will descend to the town of Ollantaytambo which stands out for still maintaining the Inca urban planning as part of his original urban layout, with some buildings and narrow stone alleys.
