You will arrive in Lima and settle in your hotel.
Today you will explore the artsy side of Callao, the seaport town: a place where various cultures merge. You will find colonial forts, European-style squares, urban art, and excellent seafood. Then, you will try traditional Peruvian dishes through an innovative tasting menu, and end the day with a luxurious Nikkei dinner.
Explore the frontiers of the Lima ceviche, on a tour across its varieties, compelling history, and evolution. Ranging from the most traditional approaches to more experimental execution. Whether they are prepared on the fly at a local market or a huarique, or plated and garnished at an award-winning restaurant, you’ll come to realize that every ceviche has an allure of its own.
We will pick you up to take our flight to Cusco early in the morning. Upon arrival, our team will welcome you at the Cusco airport, and from there, you'll be transferred to the Sacred Valley of the Incas. You will start by visiting Pisac, a charming little town famous for its artisanal market.
Then, we will take you to a charming colonial hacienda and farm for your first gastronomic experience in Cusco. You will meet Maria del Pilar and Yussef, third-generation producers of giant white corn.
Finally, you will arrive at your hotel for some well-deserved rest.
A long-awaited day: it’s time to visit Machu Picchu! You will enjoy amazing views and learn about Andean life, traveling back in time.
