Hike among some of Peru’s most enigmatic ruins and learn from Professor John Rick about the ancient civilizations that created them.

Trains crossing plains. Take in stunning views of the Andean plains aboard the Andean Explorer, South America’s first luxury sleeper train. Mystery buffs. Join the millions of scholars and tourists who have pondered the mysteries of Machu Picchu, the mystical 15th-century citadel that sits nearly 8,000 feet above sea level. Pisco, por favor. Get a taste of Lima’s world-renowned culinary scene, and toast our adventure with the classic Peruvian cocktail, a pisco sour. A visual banquet.
