Explore the highest navigable lake in the world, Lake Titicaca, home to the Uros, the floating islands and indigenous people from both the Quechua and Aymara cultures. The great glacial mountains in the vicinity of Cusco and the Sacred Valley, gods to the Incas and to the local people are additional reminders of the great forces that have sculpted not only this landscape but also its people and its cultures.

From Indigenous cultures arriving in South America thousands of years ago grew the power of the Incas. Machu Picchu, the remarkable UNESCO world heritage site and ‘lost city’ was discovered 106 years ago by Hiram Bingham and remains a unique example of an ‘untouched’ Inca city. Cusco, our base in this part of Peru is a remarkable, cosmopolitan city than provides ample demonstration both of its position of Inca capital and colonial stronghold. It was here that two of world’s great cultures collided. Historical, natural and cultural our Luxury Peru Program will inspire all visitors to this truly remarkable and enchanting country

    Climate

    Rain is possible at any time of year, especially in high mountains and cloud forest, and one should always be prepared. The climate in sites we will visit is as follows:

    Cusco and the Sacred Valley: days are warm if sunny, slightly chilly if cloudy. Nights are chilly in Cusco.
    Lake Titicaca: similar to Cusco but colder.
    Lima: warm to hot days, cool evenings, almost never any rain.
    Amazon basin: hot and humid year-round. We recommend light clothing (in weight and in color) that fully cover arms and legs to avoid mosquito bites.

    Money guide

    The unit of currency in Peru is the nuevo sol. Automatic cash points are available in Lima and Cuzco. Visa, MasterCard, Plus, and Cirrus are the most common usable types of cards. Traveler’s checks are difficult to cash (American Express is best but you may be charged 5-8% to cash) or a Visa or MasterCard for cash advances are also options. Do not bring Money Grams or International Money Orders, as they are extremely difficult to exchange. Banks and exchange houses are available in Lima and Cuzco. For currency, U.S. dollars are recommended and most easily exchanged. Please note that cash must be untorn. It can be older-looking, but even the slightest tear on an edge will make it un-changeable. Acceptable bills come out of the ATMs in country. Expect to spend about US$3-10 on a meal, US$2 on a beer, water or soft drink in Peru. Artisan market prices are usually lower than people expect. Alpaca sweaters, for example, run between $5 and $30. Currency Converter
