Central + South America
Colonial cities, lakes, rainforest and ancient ruins combine to make a perfect introduction to South America.
While the city of Cuzco and the dramatic Inca site of Machu Picchu should be included in any first-time itinerary, we always try to pair them with something more off the beaten track to create a truly unforgettable, luxury holiday in Peru.
Experience treks which most do not know about, private access to museums, leisurely lunches in quirky locations and Amazon expeditions with world-class naturalist guides. Our network of contacts makes pretty much anything possible.
With our expert planning, you can take a private trek to remote villages and ruins in the Sacred Valley, ride on horseback to visit the condors in the spectacular Colca Valley, travel by luxury train through Andean landscapes and also spend time on the magical islands of Lake Titicaca or in a remote Amazonian lodge.

Stories from Peru
"I must single out the grand picnic lunch near Moray in the Sacred Valley - the elaborate cooking and dining tents (plus loo tent) was a lovely surprise."
"From a boutique hotel to grand city mansions to a converted convent and a hacienda, to casitas in the Sacred Valley and in Ecuadorian Amazonia - each splendid. This, Sarah, is first and foremost a sincere thank you."
"One of the guides, Lena (short for Magdalena) at the Napo Wildlife Centre, was outstanding, a complete and utter star. They were all attentive, assiduous and well-mannered, if not always easily or consistently understandable."
"For each and every one of the places at which you arranged for us to stay, please accept my unreserved congratulations and hearty thanks. Each one of them was extraordinary in its own particular and memorable way."
"It has taken us a few days to come down to earth, as it were, from our trip of a lifetime in another world. It did indeed seem like another world in Machu Picchu, the Amazon rainforest, the Andes, Galapagos and places in between."
"Lunch at Gaston & Astrid on our first full day in Lima was unforgettable, one of the best meals I've ever had."
"I liked the books on your reading lists, which paved the way."
"We were treated to a breathtakingly beautiful walk around the flora and fauna, notably orchids, tanagers and humming-birds, of the Inkaterra in Aguas Calientes. The botanist who showed us around, another star, was born in the Amazonian jungle."
