So that we can offer you the best deals, our packages are, like most hotels and cruises, priced based on double occupancy rooms or cabins. We charge solo travelers an extra fee to cover the extra costs of single occupancy rooms or cabins. (Consider: if you booked a $200/night hotel room solo, you would pay the $200 yourself; but if a couple booked the same room, each one would pay only $100.) But you only pay extra for the rooms or cabins, nothing else, including meals, sightseeing, tips, etc. Why are single rooms more?

Flights & Departure Cities

Detailed Itinerary

Day 1 Depart Miami/Arrive Lima

  • Depart Miami on your flight bound for Lima, Peru
  • Upon arrival, transfer to your hotel for check-in

Iberostar Selection Miraflores or similar

Day 2 Lima

  • Tour the historic district of Lima, including the Cathedral of Lima and Convent of San Francisco
  • Participate in a Ceviche making class
  • Visit the Larco Herrera Museum

Iberostar Selection Miraflores or similar Breakfast

Full Day Itinerary
Saint Francis Monastery, Lima

After breakfast, your exploration begins with a tour of the historic district of Lima. First, see the Presidential Palace on Plaza Mayor, which serves as the official residence of the President of Peru, City Hall of Lima, located in the Plaza de Armas, which was built in the early 20th century and is home to the local government of Lima. Next, visit the Cathedral of Lima, built in the mid-16th century. This stunning cathedral is the largest in the city and home to many architectural and artistic treasures. After, visit the Convent of San Francisco, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1991. This bright-yellow Franciscan monastery and church is most famous for its bone-lined catacombs (containing an estimated 70,000 remains) and its remarkable library housing 25,000 antique texts, some of which pre-date the conquest.

Next, learn about the authentic and unique flavors of Peru during a hands-on Ceviche making class, comprised of chili, fresh raw fish coriander, and of course, lime juice. 

After, visit the Larco Herrera Museum. Located in Lima, Peru, this archaeological and ethnographic museum contains one of the world's largest collections of pre-Columbian art. The museum was founded in 1926 by Rafael Larco Herrera, a Peruvian archaeologist and collector. The museum houses over 45,000 ancient artifacts spanning over 5,000 years of Peruvian history, including ceramics, textiles, metals, and jewelry. Highlights include the most extensive collection of Moche ceramics worldwide and essential pieces from the Nazca, Wari, and Inca cultures. The museum is housed in an 18th-century colonial mansion built on top of a pre-Columbian pyramid.

End the day with a visit to the fashionable district of Miraflores, with beautiful parks and elegant residences overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

Day 3 Sacred Valley

  • Transfer to the airport for your morning flight to Cusco
  • Explore the Pisac Market and shop for unique crafts
  • Continue to Ollantaytambo and tour the fortress and ruins

Casa Andina Premium Valle Sagrado Hotel & Villas, Aranwa Sacred Valley Hotel & Wellness or similar Breakfast & dinner

Full Day Itinerary
Ollantaytambo fountain

Early this morning, transfer to the airport to board a short flight to Cusco, the capital of the Inca Empire (11,000 feet above sea level). Upon arrival, travel to nearby Pisac, a picturesque Andean village with a wonderful market. Here, you'll have a chance to buy locally made ponchos, sweaters and other handcrafted clothing, ceramics, and hand-painted beads. Enjoy browsing the "locals" section of the market, where villagers come from miles around, dressed in traditional clothing, to barter and sell their produce.

Continue to Ollantaytambo (9,160 feet above sea level), located at the foot of spectacular Inca ruins, which protected the strategic entrance to the lower Urubamba Valley, also known as the Sacred Valley. The temple area is at the top of steep terraces, which helped provide an excellent defense. The stone used for these buildings was brought from a quarry high up on the opposite side of the Urubamba River, an incredible feat involving the efforts of thousands of workers. Afterward, check in to your hotel for dinner and overnight.

Day 4 Machu Picchu

  • Transfer to Ollantaytambo station to board the Vistadome train to Machu Picchu
  • Enjoy a guided tour of the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu

El MaPi Hotel or similar Breakfast & dinner

Full Day Itinerary
Machu Picchu

After an early breakfast, transfer to the Ollantaytambo station and board the Vistadome train that will take you through the lush Urubamba Valley. The train ride passes through stunning scenery en route to the Lost City of the Incas, Machu Picchu, one of the world's most spectacular and enigmatic archaeological sites (8,000 feet above sea level.)

Unknown to the outside world until archaeologist Hiram Bingham rediscovered it in 1911, Machu Picchu is now the most recognizable symbol of the Incan Empire. Believed to have served as a country retreat town for Inca nobility, the complex consists of giant walls, terraces, and ramps constructed from precisely cut rock formations. This impressive architectural feat, combined with its breathtaking natural setting amid mist-covered green mountains above the rushing Urubamba River, makes for a visually stunning and mystical experience. Enjoy the remainder of the day and evening in Aguas Calientes, at the foot of Machu Picchu.

Day 5 Machu Picchu & Cusco

  • Spend the morning at leisure or join an optional second visit to Machu Picchu
  • Return to Ollantaytambo station by Vistadome train, then transfer to Cusco by bus

Novotel Cusco or similar Breakfast

Full Day Itinerary

Full Day Itinerary
Cusco

Enjoy the day at leisure in this beautiful town high in the Andes Mountains. You may stroll through the main square or wander through the many charming side streets. Alternatively, take advantage of one, or both, optional excursions!

Note: December 19, 2024 departure includes a holiday dinner at Novovel, Cusco.

Optional Excursion: Chinchero & Maras or Moray, $110
Chinchero

This morning's optional excursion begins with a visit to the ancient village of Chinchero and its beautiful colonial church built upon the original foundations of Tupac Yupanqui Palace. Explore Chinchero's artisan weaver complex and discover the traditional weaving, dyeing, and spinning techniques.

Next, depending on your departure date, you will visit Maras or Moray. During the dry season (May through late November), visit the salt works of Maras, consisting of about 3,000 small pools constructed on a mountainside. The ancient Inca would irrigate these pools with brackish spring water, allowing them to evaporate to produce salt for the empire. During the rainy season (late November through April), visit the archaeological site of Moray, which has enormous terraces in concentric rings that allowed ancient farmers to create diverse microclimates and harvest various crops.

Optional Excursion: Tipon & Huaro, $90
Tipon ruins

This afternoon's optional excursion begins with a scenic drive to Tipon, an impressive complex located 15 miles outside Cusco. Tipon is an ancient marvel of engineering consisting of twelve agricultural terraces and an advanced irrigation system still used by the local population today. Next, continue to Huaro and visit the Church of San Juan Bautista, a Renaissance-style church built between the 15th and 17th centuries, home to over 60 fascinating sculptures and 50 paintings of the Cusqueña School of Art, in addition to other unique treasures. Most notably, its interior is covered from ceiling to wall with intricately painted murals by Tadeo Escalante illustrating the afterlife.

Note: Andahuaylillas Church will be temporarily closed for repair works following the recent earthquake. In the meantime, we will visit to the Huaro Church as an alternative.

  • Delight in a Pisco Sour class
  • Spend the afternoon at leisure in Cusco for last-minute shopping and exploration
  • This evening, transfer to the airport for your flight to Lima, arriving in Miami the following morning

Breakfast & lunch

Full Day Itinerary
Plaza de Armas, Cusco

After a leisurely breakfast, enjoy a panoramic city tour of Cusco. See the Plaza de Armas, the center of the Inca Empire, where Francisco Pizarro proclaimed the conquest of Cusco. Here, you'll visit Cusco's beautiful 16th-century cathedral. Then, just a few blocks away, discover the ruins of the Koricancha, an important temple built to honor Inti, the Incan sun god. When the conquistadors first arrived in Cusco, the temple was covered in sheets of solid gold and adorned with golden statues. However, within months of their arrival, the temple was stripped, and the gold was plundered as a treasure for Spain.

Then, visit the Sacsayhuaman fortress, an emblematic Incan construction built in the 15th century. The fortress's size and massive stones are remarkable, and how they were transported, cut, and laid is still a mystery. Next, travel to Puka Pukara, also known as the "red fortress," which is thought to have been a military stronghold. It has many rooms, courtyards, aqueducts, and towers to explore.

Before lunch, put your mixologist skills to the test as you participate in a Pisco Sour class. This famous Peruvian cocktail is made with pisco, lime juice, simple syrup, egg whites, and bitters. This popular, refreshing drink serves as a perfect appetizer before lunch!

The balance of the afternoon is yours to explore Cusco and shop for last-minute souvenirs. Why not make your way to the San Blas neighborhood, known as the "Balcony of Cusco"? Here, you'll find excellent workshops and art shops of some of the best artisans specializing in goldsmithing, pottery, and wood and stone carving.

This evening, bid adiós to Peru as you transfer to the airport for your overnight return flight via Lima, arriving in Miami the following morning.

Important Notes

  • The high altitudes reached on this trip (Cusco is at 11,000 feet above sea level) and the amount of walking involved, often on uneven terrain, requires that you be in good physical condition to fully enjoy the trip. We strongly suggest that you consult your physician if you have any concerns regarding your ability to handle these conditions.
  • In order to visit so many of Peru's must-see sights, this tour requires several long bus rides as well as early morning departure times in order to comply with flight and train schedules. Your patience and understanding are appreciated.

Full Day Itinerary
Sea lions, Ballestas Islands

Transfer to the dock for a thrilling 2-hour speedboat tour to the Ballestas Islands, a group of protected rocky archipelagos located off the Pacific coast of Peru near Paracas. Nicknamed “The Peruvian Galapagos,” the islands are a must-see for all wildlife lovers looking to catch a glimpse of several species of birds and mammals, including penguins, Inca terns, Humboldt penguins, pelicans, sea lions, humpback whales, and dolphins.

Later, enjoy a visit to Paracas National Reserve. Founded in 1975, it is the oldest marine reserve in Peru, consisting of desert, ocean, and islands that are home to over 400 species of flora and fauna, including several varieties of algae, cacti, desert saltgrass, and Peruvian boobies. The reserve is also the location of the Candelabra geoglyph, a large candlestick-like figure etched into the desert cliffs. It is believed sailors used this as a coastal reference point for many years, whereas others have linked it to the mysterious Nazca Lines.

Continue to the on-site museum, built on the ruins of the original, which was destroyed by an earthquake in 2007. Integrated into the landscape using elements of Paracas culture, the museum is dedicated to conserving local archaeological heritage in one of the most important reserves in the Peruvian coastal desert.

† The Carefree Booking policy is not travel insurance and only applies to a new booking—defined as booking without the use of funds on file from a previous cancellation. With our Carefree Booking policy, if you book one of our scheduled departures and decide later not to travel for any reason, you can transfer all payments you've made excluding the cost of any issued flight tickets, towards another available departure date or package, with no change fees or penalties.

Alternately, you can choose to receive a future travel credit for all payments made, excluding the cost of any issued flight tickets; or you can choose to receive a refund for that same amount, minus the deposit, per person future travel credit.

You may use these credits anytime, however they must be used or transferred within 5 years of your booking.

The Carefree Booking policy only applies to your original booking—limiting rebookings to one. Subsequent bookings will be subject to standard cancellation penalties. Additionally, any coupon or discount (other than our Instant Savings) does not transfer from the cancelled booking and therefore will not be applied to the new booking.

Travel protection premiums may be credited to your new tour provided: no claim is filed; (no vendor penalties such as Air, sea or rail etc have been incurred); and your new trip departs within 1 year of the cancellation of your original tour.

Valid for bookings made on or after September 23, 2022 Offer may not be available on all packages, including private and custom group departures and Biblical Journeys. Changes or cancellations requested after final payment due date are subject to our regular change and cancellation fees & policies. For more information and some additional restrictions, see our terms & conditions.

†† $199 deposit available on select packages. Valid for new bookings only. Changes to your package, departure date, or flights may require an increased deposit. If you select our optional travel protection plan, the premium will be added to your deposit. See additional terms & conditions.
