Peru: Machu Picchu Discovery

From £1349 for 7 days
Trip Overview
This journey from Lima to Cuzco is the perfect introduction to Peru’s vibrant culture and fascinating heritage. Lima’s historic centre is replete with impressive colonial architecture, and home to the ornate Basilica Cathedral and catacombs. To the south lies Cuzco, the ancient Inca capital, nestled on a plateau surrounded by the Andes. This charming city is awash with Inca ruins and museums juxtaposed with Spanish churches and buildings, not to mention its bustling markets. Beyond Cuzco rural life continues much as it has done for centuries and we’ll meet some of these traditional communities in the Sacred Valley before visiting the colossal fortresses at Pisac and Ollantaytambo. No trip to Peru is complete without journeying through cloud forest to visit Machu Picchu, majestically perched on a mountaintop.

Itinerary & Notes
The tour starts in Lima; those on the group flights arrive in the morning but there are no excursions planned so land only travellers can arrive throughout the day (please note that hotel check-in times are usually from 3pm). Our hotel is based in the residential Miraflores District, within walking distance of the coast. Your leader will be on hand to help you get your bearings and can help make arrangements should you want to visit somewhere in particular. There will be a group briefing at the hotel this afternoon/evening. *Accommodation: Casa Andina Select (or similar)*
