This program was designed for those who only have a week and want to see some of the highlights (based mainly around the Cusco region) at a relaxed pace. It may suit a couple or friends working to their short time-scale, it could also be a group of like-minded travellers who want to see Peru together. For that, we suggest from 2-7 people in total.
In this 7-day journey we will offer you to gain an unforgettable experience that would be difficult to plan yourself independently in the time given!
The starting price of this tour is based on 2 people. If you are a larger group of people, the price will go lower at the booking. We advise this as an adult only tour as the places of interest are set to an adult taste.
Any time depending on international flight arrival!
Today, someone would meet you from your international flight at any time then transfer to your centrally located hotel in the safe district of Miraflores. The transfer takes around 45-50 minutes depending on the time of day and level of traffic.

Upon arrival in Cusco you will be picked up and transfered to your hotel near the main centre in around 15 minutes. Ideally you will arrive early evening allowing time for your dinner. You may wish to explore on your own (it is safe at night and reception can offer a map and quick suggestions) or await the guided tour on the next morning. Cusco is elevated at approximately 3400m or 11000 ft so you may fee some symptoms of altitude sickness and wish to just rest until the next day.
