Itinerary



Upon arrival at the Lima airport, you will be greeted by our Inca Expert Travel representative. After a transfer to your confirmed Lima hotel and assistance with the check in, you’ll be provided with everything needed in preparation for your upcoming journey.

Use this arrival day to rejuvenate yourself by resting or enjoying hotel spa services. If arriving early to Lima, take a scenic walk to Parque del Amor (Love Park) in Miraflores for views of Lima’s gorgeous coastline or dine in at one of the many gourmet restaurants throughout the city.



Fly from Lima to Cusco. Upon arrival at the Cusco airport, be met by an Inca Expert Travel representative. The short drive to your hotel in the historic center will provide you with stunning examples of Cusco’s hybrid Spanish-Inca architecture.

Enjoy your day with some light exploration of Cusco’s main plaza and a cup of coca tea - the local remedy for altitude sickness - while you acclimate on your first day at altitude.



Immerse yourself into the story of Cusco’s past with a private guided tour of its foremost historic sites. Start with a visit to the impressive Cusco Cathedral and Coricancha temple. Then ascend above the sea of terracotta roofs as you visit the monumental Sacsayhuaman citadel.

The afternoon is yours to spend at your leisure. Explore new flavors and pick up souvenirs at the San Pedro Market or wander the cobblestone streets of bohemian San Blas.



After a satiating breakfast your guide will meet you for the scenic private drive through the Sacred Valley. Your private tour will visit the Moray archaeological site and multi-hued salt pans of Maras and delight you with the intellectual legacy of the Incas. The tour ends with a visit to the monolithic fortress ruins of Ollantaytambo but the sightseeing continues. Gaze at the changing landscapes on your comfortable train ride to Aguas Calientes, base town for Machu Picchu.



An early morning rewards you with a momentous day of exploring the “lost city of the Incas”. Your private tour guide will take you through the iconic ruins of Machu Picchu, discussing the mystery and skill of its construction as you absorb the magical landscape that surrounds this important ruin. Return to Aguas Calientes for the train journey back to Cusco where your driver will be waiting at the station to take you to your hotel for some much deserved rest.

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



After a hearty breakfast at your Cusco hotel, transfer to the bus station to begin the journey from Cusco to Puno. The comfortable, first-class bus maximizes your time by including stops along the way at esteemed archeological sites including Raqchi and the “Sistine Chapel of the Andes” Andahuaylillas.

Remember that Lake Titicaca is at higher elevation than Cusco. Take time to rest, try out spa services, or do some light exploration while you acclimate.

Upgrade: Ride aboard the luxurious overnight Andean Explorer - A Belmond Train to Cusco. Depending on the season, service is limited to 1-2 weekly departures.



Begin your waterborne exploration of the world’s highest navigable lake - Lake Titicaca. Feel the sensation of standing on Uros Floating Islands and learn about how indigenous people maintain their long held traditions in a high altitude environment. Finish with a hike on Taquile Island to take in a spectacular sunset over the lake before the boat ride back to your hotel.



Enjoy a final breakfast at your Puno hotel and a final glance towards Lake Titicaca. Our Inca Expert representative will meet you in time to transfer you to the airport to begin your journey back home.

You can also customize this itinerary to continue your exploration of Peru’s world wonders!
