Detailed Description

Iridescent coastlines hug major metropolitan cities, and looming mountain peaks hide remnants of ancient civilizations of centuries past. The mystical Sacred Valley and the towering Andes mountains will peel away to reveal the awe-inspiring relics of Peru's ancient Inca Empire: Machu Picchu. Hand-in-hand, you and your partner will embark on an unforgettable, 7-day journey to the many wonders of Lima, Peru and beyond.

You will begin your romantic getaway with an invigorating first day in the bustling city of Lima. A lovely sunset dinner that overlooks the Pacific coast will wait for you before you return to your luxurious hotel in the esteemed neighborhood of Miraflores. The following day, you will travel through the city with your expert guide as you tour highlights of the Old City. Then, you and your partner will roll up your sleeves as you partake in a romantic cooking class for two in which you will learn to make Peru's classic lemon-lime ceviche dish. Later in the week, you will venture just south of Lima's downtown to admire the vibrant facades of the Barranco District. Here, electric hues of blue, red, yellow, and orange exude from the buildings. As you travel across the Puente de los Suspiros, you will marvel at the brightly colored, abstract street art and the nearby quaint cafes.

Beauty and intrigue of the ancient Inca Empire abound when you travel to Cusco en route to Machu Picchu. You can enjoy a day of self-exploration in Cusco as you converse with locals at open-aired markets and sample the region's fresh fruits. The Plaza de Armas will offer the perfect respite before boarding a luxury train ride to the base of the ruins in Aguas Calientes. Over the next two days, you can discover the fascinating history of the UNESCO World Heritage Site ruins alongside your expert guide. Finally, you will summit the mountain peak behind Machu Picchu and enjoy a soothing dip in the medicinal hot springs that evening as you reminisce on your incredible adventure to Peru.

These 7-days will provide you with the ultimate Peruvian experience as you are privately transferred to and from destinations in addition to having every experience catered for you with your wants and desires in mind.
