Day 1
Arrive Lima, Peru

Arrive in Lima this evening and transfer to your hotel. Founded in 1535 by Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizzaro, this “City of Kings” is a blend of colonial structures, pre-Columbian sites and modern conveniences.

The Westin Lima Hotel & Convention Center
Day 2
Lima | Colonial Splendors

After a morning at your leisure, discover Peru’s capital, strolling the Plaza Mayor, birthplace of the city, and the beautiful Cathedral, an architectural marvel built in 1535.

Day 3
Cusco | The Immense Stone Marvel of Sacsayhuaman

This morning, fly to Cusco, where you are met upon arrival and transferred to your hotel. This afternoon, discover the city on a guided exploration that includes the Cathedral on the Plaza de Armas and the Santo Domingo Temple, a Dominican church built on the foundations of the Koricancha, the Incas’ principal religious building. Learn from a local expert who explains how the historic clashes between the Incas and the Spanish played a role in forming today’s Peruvian culture. Later, visit the well-preserved ruins of Sacsayhuaman, a testament to Incan architectural skill. Compiled of colossal stones, the largest of which may weigh as much as 200 tons, the walls were cut and placed together with incredible precision and without a single drop of mortar to hold them in place. This imposing fortress, which witnessed the greatest battle between the Spanish and the Incas, overlooks the red-tiled roofs of Cusco.

Meals: Breakfast
Day 4
Sacred Valley | People of the Andean Highlands

This morning, visit a remote village seemingly frozen in time. Immerse yourself in the daily life of this local community while you learn how they create their traditional dishes, gather medicinal plants, make adobe bricks, and hand down farming and weaving techniques through the generations, to thrive in this challenging Andean mountain environment. Continue to Moray, a very different Incan site that was apparently used as an agricultural experimentation center. It is believed that its different levels were planted to test the productivity of various crop strains under a variety of circumstances. Stop for lunch at Hacienda Huayoccari, a hidden gem tucked away on a lush private estate, far off the beaten path. Afterward, return to Cusco for an afternoon at leisure.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch
Day 5
Machu Picchu | The Stunning Incan Citadel

This morning, board the Vistadome train to Machu Picchu at Ollantaytambo station. Journey deep into the Andes, gazing out at the lush Peruvian countryside along the way. Disembark in Agua Calientes and transfer up to the famed Incan citadel, where you enjoy lunch at the Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge before beginning your explorations. Overlooking the Urubamba River and revealed to the rest of the world in 1911 by American historian and adventurer Hiram Bingham, Machu Picchu forever holds the secret of its passing — its Incan inhabitants left no written records of its purpose. Walk the ruins alongside your expert guide, and then continue on your own. As you wander amid the age-old stone walls, picture life as it might have been in this majestic citadel, set some 8,000 feet above sea level.
