Private luxury escape to Machu Picchu, Lost City of the Incas

This luxury private tour of Peru will show you all the major sights and take you off the beaten track.

The Incas, Machu Picchu, Cusco, the Sacred Valley, these are just some of the amazing sights you’ll see on this luxury 14-day tour, along with natural wonders like Lake Titicaca, the colossal Colca canyon and Peruvian Amazon.

Peru is made up of roughly three regions: the long, low coastal strip (where you’ll find Lima), the vast, remote wilderness of the Amazon basin in the east and the spectacular peaks of the Andes in the centre. Beginning in Lima, we’ll journey in style to each of these areas and take in the hidden treasures that lie in between. To ensure you get the most out of everything you see and do, we’ll have expert guides on hand the whole way. Get ready to soak it all up…

As this is a private, 14-day luxury escape you can travel any time. We recommend from March to December.

The Inside Word

We Love...

The Colca Canyon! At 62 miles long and up to 3,000 metres high, it makes the Grand Canyon look like a little ditch by comparison. On the other side of the valley you can see terraced villages, where life has hardly changed for hundreds of years. It’s a special place indeed.

Learn Something New...

Did you know that Inca engineers were able to build vast stone temples without using cement or any mortar. At Cusco you’ll be able to see this for yourself when our expert guide shows you the amazing temples overlooking the city. You’ll see further testament to their strength in Cusco itself, where many of the magnificent Spanish colonial buildings harnessed elements of the Inca buildings that stood there previously.

Experience a Taste of...

Peruvian cuisine is spicy and very varied, but one thing you should try is 'aji de gallina' – chicken strips cooked in a sauce of milk, bread and chilli peppers. It’s delicious.

Jaw-dropping Moment...

It’s a pretty tough call but Machu Picchu clinches it. No matter how many photos you’ve seen of it before, there’s really no preparing for the real thing. A collection of buildings arranged around a high mountain plateau where clouds drift past below you. Bring a spare memory card for the camera…

Flying Time From The UK

Around 13 hours.

The Last Word

This private luxury escape to Machu Picchu, the Sacred Valley and the Amazon Rainforest will go straight to number one in your “Unforgettable Experiences” chart. We guarantee it. 

Don't Forget

To take your camera, a small journal and a sketchbook. There’s so much to see here and you’ll want to capture it all.

Wear light cotton clothes during the day but bring a wet weather coat and warm clothes for the nights. The Andean sun can be strong so sun block is highly recommended.

When to Escape

Peru’s diverse geography means that the weather is determined both by altitude and season, depending on where you are. While May to October is generally the best time to travel, the Amazon area is hot and humid throughout the year.

January to February

The Inca trail closes for a couple of weeks during this period.

April to October

The dry season. However, it’s worth remembering that the weather in the mountains can quickly change and it’s not uncommon to encounter rain during the dry season.

“Arriving at the Lost City of the Incas, it was truly amazing to see the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu lying before us. Even though we were so high above the surrounding landscape, our only thought was to go higher into the sky. So we climbed Wayna Picchu, the mountain overlooking the ruins, and gazed down in awe at the Inca buildings below us.”
