Trip Motif Culture History True Peru : Journey Highlights





Explore the cradle of the Inca Empire with a deeply knowledgeable Peruvian guide. The adventure begins in Cusco, then itís on to the Sacred Valley's intriguing archaeological sites and terraced mountains. A river float offers spectacular views, and a walk on an ancient trail takes you to a traditional village. A scenic train ride delivers you to Machu Picchu for an unforgettable exploration there. Topping off the trip, you catch a quick flight to Lake Titicaca (at 12,500 feet elevation!), where you can step onto the famous floating reed islands of Uros.

  • Unique perspective on Peru: See the Sacred Valley from a raft and Lake Titicaca from a floating island, and view Peruvian culture through the eyes of your local guide and villagers.
  • Machu Picchu and other Inca sites: Explore the Temple of the Sun, Ollantaytambo, Inca terraces, Inca Bridge, Machu Picchu, Sillustani, and more!
  • Exquisite textiles: From Cusco markets, to Uros weavers, to Taquile's woolen mosaics, discover Peru's textile arts.
  • Exceptional lodgings: Stay in an 18th century manor house in Cusco, quiet Sacred Valley bungalows, and a lakeside hotel at Titicaca.
