Train to Machu Picchu escorted tour

Example itinerary...

Oliver's opinion "If you have a little more time on your hands this is the perfect tour that allows you to see all of the main highlights of Peru and then some. Accommodation is of a high standard and the guides are excellent!"

In Machu Picchu, Peru has perhaps the most breathtaking archaeological site in the world. Yet it also offers a wealth of other magnificent sights: ancient, colonial and scenic. Staying in good hotels of great character with some free time to relax, this tour reveals Peru’s many wonders, including Cuzco and Arequipa, the Colca Canyon, Lake Titicaca and, of course, Machu Picchu.
