Detailed Description

Peru is a treasure chest of wonders ready to be collected on this unique 7-day tour tailored to show you just how much gold one country could hold. Journey beneath Lima, the City of Kings, to witness the centuries old catacombs. The stunning colors of the Andes are natural in their lushness and are woven into locals’ clothing. Discover the crowned jewel of Machu Picchu glistening over the sunken Sacred Valley. Explore, adventure, discover, and collect the precious memories of Peru and guard them like the treasures they are.

Begin your search for gold with your arrival in Lima, the City of Kings. Journey beneath the Church of San Francisco where the catacombs flicker with light and history. Venture to Cusco where the streets roll along the hills, rising and falling at the earth’s will, with the remnants of ornate Spanish architecture following the cobblestones. Explore the Sacred Valley where the ancient fortress ruins of Ollantaytambo linger over the once Inca city. The Pisac market explodes with color, a treasure trove of wonder in itself, where garments are traded and bought with traditional precision after centuries of practice.

Venture into the mountaintops where you will find the crown jewel of Machu Picchu sitting above the valley. The stones shine and the city almost flies into the clouds. Return to Cusco and experience the golden sentiments of the city with a tour through the remaining Inca culture and Spanish decadence. From the Temple of the Sun to the Cusco Cathedral, the opulence of the city is within, below, and above the architecture. You will witness the shimmering beauty of the Spanish colonial past with the engineering riches of the Inca, glittering like a gem on a pedestal. Your journey home will remind you that the memories of your time in Peru are precious and you will keep them guarded like the treasures they are.
