Is peering down at the awe-inspiring ruins of Machu Picchu on your bucket list? How about a picturesque boat ride on Lake Titicaca or a stroll through the charming city of Cuzco? Check all of this off and more on an 8-night comprehensive tour of Peru while saving $1,000 from similar tours offered.
For $1,999 per person ($182 per day), this package from smarTours includes round-trip airfare on LAN Airlines, 8 nights of accommodations at first class hotels, all domestic flights, ground transportation and transfers, 11 meals (8 breakfasts, 1 lunch and 2 dinners) and sightseeing with an English-speaking tour guide.
Depart from Miami on Nov. 17, 2014 or Feb. 9, 2015 at this rate. Additional gateways and dates now through June 2015 are available for $100 to $200 more.
Arrive in Peru‘s capital city, Lima, then take a quick flight to Cuzco — an ancient city resting comfortably between towering peaks of the Andes Mountain Range — to visit to the spectacular Sacred Valley of the Incas, with plenty of stops for sightseeing and indigenous ceremonies along the way. The Indian market in Pisac is next on the agenda, as well as the Incan ruins at Ollantaytambo.
Next is the moment you’ve been waiting for — a Vistadome train ride to Machu Picchu or “The Lost City of the Incas.” Experience breathtaking views of the Urubamba Valley from the comfort of your seat, where you’ll also receive a guided tour of the ruins that trace back the history of this beloved site. Then, take a fascinating walking tour of Cuzco and a full day to explore the city on your own before traveling south to Puno.
Sail through the waters of Lake Titicaca for a look at indigenous life in this area, including the man-made Uros Indian islands and Taquile Island. Finish back in Lima for a guided tour of this vibrant coastal capital and for more time to discover the city’s gems by yourself.
