Sampling the Inca TrailPERU GRAND TOUR 2011Cusco, PeruWhere better to sample the rich culture of South America than Peru? Heart of the ancient Inca world and site of the remnants of the Spanish conquistadores. A city tour of Lima, the country's capital, offers a unique contrast between modern and colonial. Overlooking the Pacific, the city was founded by Franciso Pizarro, on the site of numerous Inca ruins. One of Peru's most popular pilgrimage sites, the Pachacamac ruins, includes the 'Temple of the Sun God'.There are few occasions in life when the backdrop for brunch will match the view from the Hiram Bingham Train as it makes its intrepid way towards Machu Picchu. It seems the Inca ruler, Pachacuti Inca Yapanqui had seclusion in mind when constructing the site's 200 buildings around 1465 - they are protected by jungle and circled by the steep cliffs of the Urubamba Valley. No postcard can truly encapsulate the real-life beauty of the mountain-top ruined city, and our arrival there is when most other visitors are leaving, creating a less crowded experience. Next are dinner and entertainment on the return journey as the sun sets on this World Heritage Site.The historic capital of the Inca Empire, Cusco is just a stone's throw from the majestic Andes mountain range. The Sacred Valley of the Incas, Ollantaytambo's Inca Fortress and 'Koricanche' (Temple of the Sun) are all tour highlights. The colonial city built on its foundations offers a complete contrast - the Plaza de Armas and colourful Pisac Market are both well worth a visit.2 nights at the Casa Andina Private Collection Hotel, Lima (or 1 night on post-cruise holiday)Tour of Pachacamac Ruins in Lima2 nights at the Aranwa Hotel, located in the Sacred Valley (or 1 night on pre-cruise holiday)Full day tour of the Sacred Valley of the Incas, Ollantaytambo Fortress and the colourful Pisac Market, including lunch at a local restaurantJourney to Machu Picchu aboard the luxuriously appointed Hiram Bingham train.
