Itinerary



Upon arrival at the Lima airport, meet our Incas Expert Travel representative for a transfer to your confirmed Lima hotel.

If arriving early, you can also take in scenic Parque del Amor (Love Park) in Miraflores for views of Lima's gorgeous coastline.



Fly from Lima to Cusco. Upon arrival at the airport, meet our Incas Expert Travel representative for the short drive to your hotel in the historic center. Along the way, you will see stunning examples of the city’s hybrid Spanish-Inca architecture.

You have the rest of the afternoon to explore the city. Remember to take it easy on your first day at altitude.



Begin your day with a private guided tour of Cusco’s most important sites. Start with a visit to the Cusco Cathedral and Qoricancha. Later, see the impressive ruins of Sacsayhuaman.

Spend the afternoon at your leisure. Shop with locals at San Pedro Market or wander the streets of bohemian San Blas.



In the morning, meet your guide for a trip to the Sacred Valley. Your private tour visits the concentric circle terraces of Moray which descend nearly 500 feet into the earth, the multi-hued salt pans of Maras, and the monolithic fortress ruins of Ollantaytambo. At the end of the tour, catch the train to Aguas Calientes, base town for Machu Picchu.



Wake up early and meet your guide for a memorable walk through the “lost city of the Incas” and let yourself be swept away by the magical landscape that surrounds this important ruin. Finish up with last photos and then return to Aguas Calientes town for the return trip to Cusco.

Upgrade options:
Climb Huayna Picchu for views over the ruins or add an extra day in Machu Picchu.



After breakfast, transfer to the bus station to begin the trip to Puno and Lake Titicaca. The comfortable, first-class bus includes stops along the way at the beautiful church of Andahuaylillas and the archaeological center of Raqchi. On arrival, meet our representative for a transfer to your Lake Titicaca hotel

Upgrade option:

Ride aboard the luxurious Andean Explorer train to Puno. Depending on the season, service is limited to 3-4 weekly departures.



Departing from Puno port, begin your waterborne exploration of the world’s highest navigable lake. Stop at the Uros Floating Islands and Taquile Island to see how indigenous people maintain their traditions in an extreme high altitude lake environment.

Follow this with a visit to a local island. Depending on your preference, you can choose from a unique homestay experience in Amantani or a visit to the private island - Isla Suasi.



Take another day to further explore the island at your leisure. After lunch, board the boat back to Puno, enjoying one last look at the blue expanses of Lake Titicaca.



Enjoy a final breakfast at your Puno hotel. Then meet our representative for a transfer to the airport to begin your journey back home.
