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.

We work in some of the most ecologically and culturally sensitive parts of the world, so have always been conscious of operating in a way that has a positive impact on both the environment and the people.
When you travel with us, we will make a contribution on your behalf to one of the following charities: All About the Light Foundation in Africa, ABOUTAsia Travel & Schools in Cambodia, the Alalay Foundation in Bolivia and Scott Polar Research Institute in the Polar Regions.
If clients are interested, we are always keen to get them involved in local projects and conservation efforts. Whether it be whale counting in Antarctica or rhino relocation in Kenya, you will leave knowing your actions have made a difference.
Our service includes booking and managing all your international and domestic flights. However, you can also book your own international flights if you would prefer. We can also organise private charters and private jet travel for both international and domestic flights.
We have a fantastic VIP service in place to help you navigate the airport and make your journey as smooth and easy as possible. We can collect you from your home, take you to the airport and escort you through check-in and immigration to avoid any queues, straight through to the airport lounge before boarding your flight. The same service can be put in place on your return journey.
We understand that one of the most important factors to our clients is flexibility to give you as much assurance as possible when booking your next trip. We are extremely flexible and are on hand to discuss with you the latest updates on flexibility in any one of our destinations.
We have excellent relationships with a handful of insurance companies who provide various forms of cover. Each one offers a different policy with varying terms and conditions, so we strongly recommend getting a series of quotes and discussing your personal requirements in detail with them in order to find the best one for you.
Booking and travelling with an accredited tour operator is more important than ever. cazenove+loyd is a bonded tour operator and is ATOL protected by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). Our ATOL number is 3208. This means that the UK government guarantees all funds paid out to a bonded operator and is bound to pay in full if the bond holder is unable to deliver as contracted. This gives our clients peace of mind and full financial protection. Please see our booking conditions for further information.
We have put the relevant measures in place so that our destinations are ready to welcome you safely. In all of our destinations, sanitation and hygiene in our vehicles and the properties we work with are extensive, with cleaning protocols rigidly followed as well as other necessary safety requirements. We always arrange private vehicles and guides for our clients when travelling in a destination.
The price of our service is dependent on the intricacies of the itinerary. No two trips are the same. Our philosophy is to make every detail tailored just to you.

Stories from Peru
Efrain is the most amazing guide. The train today was such a surprise. We thought we would be packed in on the Great Western Railway equivalent but this is MEGA... Love that we didn’t know as well!
"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."
"I just wanted to say what an AMAZING surprise today was. We got to the train thinking we were going on a standard train (then bus) and thought – "this is going to be fun but a lot of tourists!" So when we got to the train, we were like two kids at Christmas. Not even our amazing guide had said anything except that the food for dinner will be okay. Haha!"
"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."
Thank you so much. What an amazing surprise today was and we still haven’t even got to Machu Picchu, which has always been a huge dream of mine to visit. Genuinely, I would say this is already shaping up to be the best day of my life bar getting married, as it was just such a surprise. PS. We have used the bag everyday!
We cannot thank you enough for everything you did to organise our honeymoon. It was a once-in-a-lifetime trip and doing it with cazenove+loyd really made the difference. It was so brilliant to not know every detail of what we were doing and to be surprised along the way. We never felt stressed about travel and everything worked together seamlessly. It really was so amazing.
