Detailed Description

Locals will gather at the open-aired markets of Cusco while pedestrians and hurried taxis pass by the ancient remnants of the Inca Empire. In Lima, cars will weave along major boulevards while waves crash against the sandy beaches of the Pacific. Meanwhile, in the Sacred Valley, the quickened pace of city life will fall to the wayside as condors swoop and the isolated sounds of cowbells ring out into the green lands.

You and your partner will embark on a romantic getaway to explore Peru's breathtaking natural beauty and fascinating culture and history. You will begin your journey in the bustling city of Lima, where you will indulge in a guided tour of the city's highlights. Your expert guide will lead you through luscious public parks and Lima's downtown area. Here, you will learn about the impact of cultures that were mixed with the influence of Spanish conquistadors during the 16th century. Later, you will venture to the Barranco District, which exudes creativity and artistry with its vibrant buildings and whimsical street art.

During the second half of your visit, you will travel to the charming city of Cusco and the famed UNESCO World Heritage Site of Machu Picchu. You will visit local markets, where you can converse with charismatic vendors and sample local fruits. On your second full day in Cusco, you will marvel at Incan innovations at Qorikancha, Tambomachay, and Saqsayhuaman before carrying on to the Sacred Valley. In Chinchero, you will sit in on an authentic yarn dyeing class. Then, you will witness this region from an entirely new perspective as you travel on horseback along the undulating hillside. Lastly, you will board a scenic train along the final stretch of the Sacred Valley before arriving at your final destination at the famed ruins of Machu Picchu.
