Detailed Description

Your plane will touch down just minutes from Lima's center, which is always bursting with boundless energy. You can take a look from your private balcony as shop owners sell vibrant jewelry and listen to the soothing melodies of local musicians while couples take relaxing strolls along the luminescent coastline. Follow your expert guide on a lively tour through whimsical neighborhoods, past opulent skyscrapers, and around coveted relics of history that date back thousands of years. You can dip your toes into white sandy beaches as waves crash against the rocky shores of Paracas, and then, step aboard a private cruise ship for a glimpse of stunning wildlife like the humpback whale as it migrates to warmer waters.

You must cross the sandy beaches of Peru's west coast and the rugged mountains of central Peru to arrive at the palatial terrains of the Amazon Jungle. You will zipline along verdant treetops and keep watch for some of the rarest bird species in the world. As you become one with nature, you will spend the night in a luxurious lodge hotel among the jungle's gorgeous, green foliage.

After a brief visit to the culturally rich region of Lake Titicaca, you will circle back inland to the regal Andes Mountains. As you arrive in the birthplace of the Inca Empire, you will encounter some of the most exquisite examples of Inca design in the city of Cusco and on its outskirts. You will travel through the scenic Sacred Valley as you experience the wonders of Andean traditions that have been upheld to this day. You will disembark at the base city of Aguas Calientes for two unforgettable days at Machu Picchu.
