On arrival in the Argentine capital, you’ll be warmly greeted and escorted to the Alvear Palace Hotel. Situated in La Recoleta, one of the city’s most exclusive, districts, our luxury hotel promises exceptional service and elegant rooms decorated in Empire and Louis XV style.

The Argentine capital is a rich mosaic of Spanish, Italian, German and French influences - in its cuisine, architecture and the spirit of its residents. With our expert guide, you'll explore this delightful city including the elegant Plaza de Mayo; it’s the oldest public square in town and has been the scene of many significant and historic events. You’ll also see City Hall, an impressive Colonial-era landmark, and tour the Metropolitan Cathedral with its grand interior and lavish Rococo-style altar. Adding a unique twist to this morning's city tour, your guide will offer fascinating insight, relating each of these landmarks to the colorful life of Eva Peron. In the afternoon, you’ll delve into the city’s vibrant arts scene in the leafy and upscale Palermo district – filled with colorful murals and vibrant street art. This evening, enjoy dinner and the Tango show at La Ventana, a venue famed for the passion and skill of its dancers and musicians. Meals B, D

Begin your sightseeing in La Boca, the colorful and historic neighborhood where the Tango was born. It’s situated along the waterfront and retains a strong European ambiance thanks to the area’s early settlers, many of whom came from the Italian city of Genoa. The homes and buildings are colorfully painted, there’s always music to be heard, and street performances of Tango are a regular occurrence! Then continue to San Telmo, where the weekly San Telmo Antique Fair hosts more than 250 vendors. Mingle with residents who are out to shop and to enjoy the impromptu performances of dance and theater that make this one of the capital's liveliest events. San Telmo has also emerged as a gastronomic hub making this a terrific place for lunch. Today, you’ll also visit Zanjon de Granados. Discovered in 1986 and dating to the 1700’s, this unusual subterranean architectural site encompasses a network of tunnels and cisterns that have been carefully reconstructed and lit, offering a fascinating look into the earliest days of the city.  Meals B+L


After breakfast, we’ll take you to the airport for you included flight to Iguassu Falls, where you’ll be met and escorted to the luxurious Belmond Das Cataratas, the only hotel located inside Brazil’s Iguassu National Park. Then join our naturalist guide to explore along the Park’s well-maintained trails, hitting all the best vantage points here on the Brazilian side of Iguassu. Later, if you wish, you can continue exploring on your own, even after the Park has closed to other visitors!  Meals B


The Argentine Side of the Falls

Belmond Das Cataratas Iguassu, Brazil

To complement yesterday’s sightseeing of Iguassu’s Brazilian side, you’ll set out with our guide this morning for a full-day tour focusing on the prime vantage points on the Argentine side of these mighty cascades. At the famed Devil’s Throat Cataract, the thundering waters and towering mist often create thousands of rainbows suspended in mid-air. The vegetation is lush and there are multiple trails to explore the different angles and unique viewpoints. Whereas the Brazilian side offers a wider, more panoramic view, today’s sightseeing immerses you in the Falls’ environment and will make you feel like you are a part of this remarkable force of nature. Together, our complete Iguassu experience promises a richer, more rewarding visit.  Meals B

You’ll be escorted to the airport for your included nonstop flight to exciting Rio! On arrival, you’ll be met and taken to the Belmond Copacabana Palace, a city landmark for nearly a century. A+R guests enjoy luxurious oceanview rooms overlooking one of the world’s most famous beaches!  Meals B

After breakfast, join your engaging native-born guide to explore the important landmarks and natural wonders of this sophisticated and exciting city. Your sightseeing begins at the Sambadrome where Brazil’s famed Samba schools compete during Carnival. Then tour the Metropolitan Cathedral; designed by Edgar Fonesca, its soaring angular silhouette was designed to evoke ancient Mayan pyramids. Inside, you’ll behold beautiful stained glass windows that soar more than 200 feet to the building’s apex. Next up, a thrilling 2-stage cable car takes you up Sugarloaf Mountain for amazing views over Rio and its dramatic backdrop of sea, mountain and sky. Then ascend Mt. Corcovado c to gaze in awe upon the 100-foot tall statue of Christ the Redeemer and to enjoy the 360º views over Rio.

Welcome to Lima

Upon arrival in the Peruvian capital, you’ll be warmly greeted and escorted to your choice of 5-star hotels located in Lima’s vibrant Miraflores district: the lovely JW Marriott Hotel or Belmond’s Miraflores Park, both with oceanview rooms.


Discover Lima

After a leisurely breakfast, your car, driver and guide will be waiting to show you Lima’s highlights – starting at the Larco Museum; renowned for its superb collection of pre-Columbian artifacts, your private tour is the perfect introduction to the Inca sites you’ll explore in the coming days.
After a light lunch, continue to Plaza Mayor in the historic heart of the city. Admire the Archbishop’s Palace, easily recognized by its grand wooden balcony, and behold the impressive 18th-century Cathedral. Close by, you’ll tour the beautiful Convent and Basilica of Santo Domingo, built in 1766.
Then spend time exploring the streets of Barranco, where 19th-century aristocratic homes have been given new life as cafés, galleries and boutique. Visit MATE, a pioneering contemporary art museum founded by Mario Testino, the Peruvian photographer famed for his portraits of cultural icons including Diana, Princess of Wales, Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow. In addition to a permanent collection of Testino’s works, MATE features rotating exhibits devoted to established and emerging contemporary artists.  Meals B+L


Fly to Cuzco

This morning, you’ll be chauffeured to the airport for your flight to Cuzco, where you’ll be warmly greeted and escorted to the JW Marriott Hotel or the Belmond Palacio Nazarenas, where you enjoy oxygenated rooms. With your own personal guide, this afternoon’s tour begins in the peaks outside of town where you’ll discover the magnificent ruins of Sacsayhuaman. Built in the 1400’s by the Inca Emperor Pachacútec, the massive limestone blocks of this venerated complex were cut with such precision that they fit together without mortar like the interlocking pieces of a jigsaw puzzle! With some individual stones towering more than 10 feet tall and weighing several hundreds of tons, Sacsayhuaman is a monumental achievement of architecture and masonry.
You’ll also visit San Pedro Market and Almudena Cemetery; here at these seemingly quotidian sites, your guide will offer fascinating cultural perspectives and personal insights into how ancient traditions – many dating back to Inca times – still endure in the life of local citizens. Then discover Cuzco’s Cathedral and the other Colonial-era landmarks that line the Plaza de Armas. At the Temple of the Sun and Convent of Santo Domingo, you’ll discover one of Peru’s most fascinating sites. It also demonstrates the rich layering of history here in Cuzco, where a sacred structure of one culture, the Convent, literally sits atop and practically encloses another, the Inca-built Temple of the Sun. Finish your tour with an engaging local bartender and learn how to make the perfect Pisco Sour, Peru’s signature cocktail.  Meals B


Through the Sacred Valley to Machu Picchu

After breakfast, you’ll be chauffeured to the station to board the Vistadome Train for your journey through the Sacred Valley. Sit back and enjoy the views as you travel through this timeless region of snow-capped Andean peaks, quiet villages and terraced fields that have been cultivated for centuries. On arrival in the charming town of Aguas Calientes, you’ll board the coach for the 30-minute ride up the switchback mountain road that brings you to the entrance to Machu Picchu. The fabled Lost City is certainly the single greatest landmark in Peru – and perhaps all of South America. Indeed, little can be written here that would do justice to the breathtaking grandeur of its mountain setting, the enigmatic power and aura that so permeate this ancient citadel, and the unforgettable experience of standing among these ancient stones. And with your personal guide’s illuminating expertise, your visit will bring to life the ancient Inca civilization that built Machu Picchu. After sightseeing, return to town for a peaceful overnight at the Inkaterra El Pueblo Machu Picchu, a charming deluxe resort nestled in an Andean cloud forest along the banks of the Urubamba River or the Belmond Sanctuary Lodge, the only hotel adjacent to the ruins. Meals B+L+D


Machu Picchu and back to Cuzco

For guests staying at the Inkaterra El Pueblo, we’ve included your motorcoach transportation back up the mountain and your entry ticket so you can explore the Lost City at your own pace. Our guests at the Sanctuary Lodge will also have their ticket and can simply walk to the Machu Picchu entrance. At this early hour, people have yet to arrive from Cuzco or the Sacred Valley. With far fewer visitors and the soft light of morning just breaking over the surrounding mountain peaks, your return visit promises an exceptionally powerful and evocative experience.
In the afternoon, you’ll make the return rail journey through the Sacred Valley. On arrival in Cuzco, you’ll be met and chauffeured back to the JW Marriott Hotel or Belmond Palacio Nazarenas.  Meals B


Back to Lima…and home

We’ll take you to the airport this morning for your included flights to Lima and Buenos Aires. Meals B
