10 Day Peru and the Romance of Rail

At its peak, the Inca Empire held sway over 12 million people across a realm that stretched along the Pacific from Ecuador to northern Chile. Today, all we know of this mysterious civilization lies in what they left behind: hidden ruins, an enduring culture, and proud descendants. Experience Old World romance as you step into their world on this captivating rail journey through the Andean foothills of Peru, aboard South America’s first luxury sleeper train, seeking out colonial cities, archaeological sites, and natural wonders. The Inca may be gone, but their legacy is eternal. Witness it.

It all starts in Lima, the Peruvian capital, with a privately guided tour of the city’s principal sights – the Government Palace, the extravagant Cathedral, Miraflores’ boutiques, and many more – before exploring the Larco Museum’s impressive collection of Inca artifacts in the company of a local scholar. In elegant Arequipa, visit the Santa Catalina Monastery, Peru’s most important religious site, to meet “Juanita,” a 15th-century Inca mummy before exploring the city and gaping at the impressive Misti Volcano in the distance. Later, board a luxury sleeper train and head to Lake Titicaca to join the local Uru people for lunch and learn how they live on the surface of the world’s highest lake atop structures made from dried reeds. In Cusco, enter the domain of the Inca with a visit to the Raqch’i archaeological site, then discover the highlights of the UNESCO-protected city, including the colorful artisan’s market at Pisac before venturing up to Machu Picchu, the fabled Lost City of the Inca, for a private tour. Later, return to the mountains for an exhilarating hike up Machu Picchu Mountain to take in the truly staggering views of the ancient city and the Sacred Valley below. Finally, participate a private half-day walking tour through the cobblestone streets of Cusco with an expert local guide before returning to Lima.
