Detailed Description

Experience the delights of Peru on this 7-day deluxe tour meant for Incan emperors, American royalty, European princesses, Indian princes, or anyone who has ever wanted to experience true indulgence. Float through your holiday as if taken along the journey on a pillow filled with feathers. Experience the Andes while feeling lighter than air, the beauty of the Plaza de Armas in Cusco inviting you in. Drift along the railway in style aboard the Hiram Bingham train, where the experience caters to your tastes and comforts. Glide through the sky through the ruins of Machu Picchu as you explore the Lost City of the Incas which looks as if it floats on the clouds. From the diversity of Lima’s neighborhoods to the encircling terraces of Machu Picchu, step into the deluxe and experience Peru the way every royal would want to.

Begin your lavish holiday with your arrival in Lima, an eclectic city meant to sooth all your wants and desires. Along the trendy seaside neighborhood of Miraflores your hotel reflects the sapphire waves of the sea. The ancient remnants of an adobe pre-Incan Pyramid sits in contrast to the Spanish structures of the historic city center. Make your way to Cusco where the beauty of the streets is mirrored by the splendor of the architecture, the Spanish styling lain over the Incan bases. Outside of Cusco you can experience the stunning ruins of Pisac and Ollantaytambo, where the lingering remains of the Incan past stand along the mountainside, watching over the centuries old villages below.

Continue your easy journey through Peru along the Hiram Bingham Railway, the well-appointed sitting car and the decadent food of the dinning car will have you wanting to stay for more, that is, of course, until you reach the base of the citadel. At the top of the plateau the remains of the Lost City of Machu Picchu will embrace you, the stone structures climbing up and over the mountain in lingering terraces, as the clouds slowly disappear. Enjoy another morning exploring the ruins and the history before returning to Cusco and the beauty of its meandering, rolling streets. Return to Lima where the lapping waves of the sea reflect in the windows of your Miraflores hotel. As your exclusive journey ends you will board your flight and climb into the pillow-like comfort of the sky. Every time you pass through the clouds a smile will come to your face as you remember your time in Peru.
