Belmond Sanctuary Lodge

With only 31 rooms, this is the only hotel located at the entrance of Machu Picchu. While most travelers have to wake up at 4am to get in line for the local shuttle bus (then spend another 40 minutes en route) to get to the entrance of Machu Picchu, an overnight stay here means you can avoid the crowds and visit Machu Picchu conveniently without any hassles. Although a night here has a price tag of almost $1000/night, it is well worth it for a chance to experience Machu Picchu at different times of the day.

GHL Hotel Lago Titicaca

A stay at Libertador Lake Titicaca, on the private island of Esteves, offers you a privileged position from which to marvel at the richly colored dawn sky or relax at the end of the day with a glass of red wine as you watch the sunset over the lake. The hotel is located at one extreme of Titicaca, in the bay of Puno on a rocky hill surrounded by the extensive reed forest or totorales that dominate this side of the bay.

Andean Explorer Train

South America's first luxury sleeper train will be our home for one night as we journey from Cusco to Lake Titicaca. This train travels along one of the highest train routes in the world and offers breathtaking views along the way.

I want to say mahalo AGAIN for doing such an excellent job in guiding us through the amazing tour of Peru and returning us safely back home. Your warm personality and cheerfulness that greeted us every morning pushed us to our physical limits on the climbs.....of which I’m sure I lost some brain cells from lack of oxygen.....but now we can all say “been there-done that!!”

Travel Information

Health & Safety 

This tour is a well-paced active tour that includes walking on inclined or uneven pavements in high altitudes.
We're sorry, guests in wheelchairs are not encouraged to join this tour due to lack of wheelchair accessibility in hotels and sites, including Machu Picchu.

Travelers can experience altitude sickness in destinations higher than 8,000ft above sea level. Common symptoms include headache, nausea, shortness of breath, fatigue, and lack of appetite. For most travelers, it is a manageable condition through medication, herbal remedies, and breathing exercises. We have designed our tour to start at a lower altitude and gradually progress to higher altitude areas, so it allows the body time to slowly accumulate. All of our buses and hotels are equipped with oxygen tanks, medical professionals are also accessible if needed.
Guests with preexisting medical conditions such as heart or lung disease should consult with your doctor before traveling. 
We strongly encourage you to visit the CDC website and check with your health care provider for a list of recommended and required shots when traveling to Peru and other South American countries. 
Zika virus is present in Peru. Please practice enhanced precautions when traveling. We do not recommend women who are pregnant to travel to Peru. For more information, visit the CDC or CA Department of Public Health websites.
