Overview

Inca treasures, wild landscapes and ancient legends are brought to life in the Sacred Valley, centuries-old ruins of Machu Picchu and the charismatic capital streets of Lima.

  1. Welcome to the Capital of the New World - the launch pad to our effortlessly delivered encounter with the iconic and unexpected highlights of Peru. On arrival in Lima, you'll be transferred to your hotel in the exclusive bairrio of San Isidro where you'll enjoy a Welcome Reception this evening to meet your Travel Director and travel companions.

    meal(s):Welcome Reception
    hotel:Novotel Lima
  2. Connect with the colonial heritage of Francisco Pizzaro's "City of Kings," admiring the colonial splendor of Lima's UNESCO-listed Historic Center. Stand in the birthplace of this ancient, yet modern city, surrounded by the Baroque façades of Cathedral of Lima and Palace of the Union. See the Church of the San Francisco and discover its hidden catacombs. Celebrate Lima's status as the culinary capital of South America and connect with locals when you meet Ignacio Barrios, who has worked alongside many of Peru's most award-winning chefs. We visit a local market where Ignacio will explain how Peruvian fruits, vegetables, seafood and meats are the basis of Peruvian cooking. Then, continue to Chef Ignacio's cooking school where we'll enjoy a demonstration on how to prepare some of Peru's most popular dishes and have an opportunity to sample some at a Be My Guest lunch before spending the rest of the day at leisure.

    meal(s):Buffet Breakfast, Lunch
  3. We leave the coastal capital behind and board a morning flight to Cusco and the Sacred Valley. Dive into culture at Awanakancha and learn how your visit makes a difference to this living museum, which provides sanctuary to llamas, alpacas and vicuñas and preserves traditional weaving techniques. Enjoy a picnic lunch before visiting the Pisac market where local Quechua people come to sell their produce and handicrafts. Stroll past the colorful stalls, sip a cup of coca tea to acclimate to the altitude and keep your ears open for roving bands playing the traditional music of the Andes. Later this afternoon, we arrive at a former 18th-century colonial-style monastery in the heart of the Sacred Valley, our hotel for the night. Dive into culture and meet Nilda Callañaupa Alvarez, who will share centuries-old Andean weaving techniques. Tonight, we dine at our hotel.

    meal(s):Continental Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
    hotel:Sonesta Posadas del Inca Yucay
  4. The mystical empire of the Incas takes center stage today. We visit the famous Sacred Valley stronghold of Ollantaytambo, before boarding the Vistadome train (light snack included) for our epic journey to Machu Picchu, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Delve into the mysteries of this once-great civilization, admiring the 15th century stone ruins of temples, palaces and terraces perched high amidst the clouds. Join your Local Specialist for an exploration of the iconic great Temple of the Sun, the House of the Priest, the Sacred Plaza and the Intihuatana, an intricately carved rock most likely used as a sundial centuries ago. We return to our hotel where we dine tonight.

    meal(s):Buffet Breakfast, Dinner
    hotel:El Mapi by Inkaterra
  5. The ancient ruins of Machu Picchu beckon again and we have an opportunity to re-connect with this ancient wonder. If you're feeling adventurous, hike up to the Gate of the Sun for stunning views over the fortress. We board a train to the Sacred Valley, then head to the colonial city of Cusco, stopping en route at a local chicheria. Dive into culture and enjoy the sweet flavors of chica as you learn how this Peruvian corn beer is brewed by the local women.

    meal(s):Buffet Breakfast
    hotel:Novotel Cusco
  6. Embark on a sightseeing tour of the sacred city of Cusco this morning, admiring the 16th-century Spanish colonial buildings that stand on the foundations of former Inca temples and palaces. See the baroque Cathedral on the Plaza de Armas and 17th-century Church of Santo Domingo. Visit the ruins of the Sacsayhuaman fortress and see nearby warehouses where the Incas once stored their grain. The afternoon is free to explore on your terms. This evening, gather for a Regional Meal at a local restaurant, enjoying Cusquenian dishes and ancestral dance performances.

    meal(s):Buffet Breakfast, Regional Meal
  7. A leisurely start to our day sees us return to Lima this afternoon.

Service rating : Excellent trip to Machu Picchu, Peru! Rudy was a wonderful guide - he handled everything seamlessly and was able to convey and share the culture and history. It was just the right amount of active time and social time. Enjoyed the excursion to the salt mines and Moray agricultural grounds. Thank you for a memorable trip!

Service rating : GET service was top notch! The two service reps we worked with were friendly, informative, and very thorough in guiding us through the booking process.
Vacation : The lodging and ground transportation were all first class. The itinerary was perfect to get the feeling of the country and culture. Danny, our travel guide, was the best. Very personable, and knowledgeable. He added insightful historical and societal perspectives of the Incas and the Spanish conquest that went far beyond the usual sightseeing. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip. We recommend it to anyone.

Service rating : Booking vacation was straight forward. We were pushed to eatly August due to full house in July. Probanly better weather in Peru in August. Only issue was getting our documrnt and itinerary. We had to call after waitng and ask for them. Finally, getting the airline s hedukes and boarding data correct was difficult, requiring several calls to GET, AMER. AIRLINES and LATAM. Only finalized 48 hours before take off. LATAM had no Passport info, from GET or AA. Once entered manually on LATAM website, the bogus BOGATA flight disappeared and everything was resolved. But up to then, no one could answer my question. Very disconcerning! Great trip! High quality with TRAFALGER. Great group.
Vacation : Very informative and deeply insightful thanks to Trafalger's Tour Guide.

Service rating : Initially I was not particularly interested in a couple of cultural learning experiences based on prior experiences I had on a different tour. However, I was genuinely surprised by the cultural experiences as scheduled. These opportunities were engaging in large part due to the enthusiasm generated by the presenters. Loved each opportunity to interact with community members and learn from their perspectives. Please continue recruiting presenters who are personable and enthusiastic about their communities!
Vacation : Overall the tour was terrific. There were booking issues with our flights which took several phone calls to resolve over a couple of days. Our travel documents were not sent until a short time (8 days) until our departure. I had to call GET to request our travel documents which were then sent electronically.

Vacation:
Service rating : Could have done a better job of booking airline between Atlanta and Lima We opted supposedly to fly in a day early if we hadn't done that we would have missed welcome reception.Also flying home was not a good experience we had a full day on Friday and the minute we returned from the farewell dinner we had to jump in cab for airport so went 48 hrs without getting into a bed we had hotel room and breakfast it should have been suggested to fly out at 1:00 AM on Sunday rather than 1:00 AM on Saturday I thought that is why a person books through a travel agent to be guided through process I probably will book my own flight next time as i have in the past
Response from Grand European Travel:
Thank you for letting us know about your experience with your flights. We do book the most direct and convenient flights available at the time you book your trip and the schedules to/from Lima are for the most part the same on every airline. Very late arrivals and extremely early departures. We apologize if this was not properly explained to you when you booked. We hope that you were able to enjoy Lima overall.

  • U.S. citizens traveling to Peru must have a current passport that is valid for six months beyond the conclusion of their trip. You can find information on how to apply for a passport here, and how to renew a passport here. No visa is required for U.S. citizens entering Peru.

  • The currency in Peru is the Peruvian Sol. You can use your debit or credit card to pay in most places and will usually find a better exchange rate in Peru.  The most convenient way to obtain cash is to use your ATM card at local banks. We recommend you also bring a valid credit card for purchases while you are traveling.  It is important that you inform your financial institutions of your travel plans before you leave home so they don’t flag your purchases as potentially fraudulent charges.

  • One of the most enjoyable parts of traveling is sampling the local cuisine.  Peruvian food is a colorful mix of cultural influences and flavorful ingredients. Sample popular specialties including seafood ceviche – the country’s national dish –stir fried beef, potatoes with spicy cheese sauce, and stuffed peppers. And there’s nothing quite like a South American pisco sour cocktail prepared with lemon juice, egg white, and pisco liqueur.

    The hot and spicy nature of Peruvian food, created by ají and ajo (hot pepper and garlic), has become celebrated at home and abroad. Peruvians enjoy a wide variety of vegetables, with over 2000 kinds of indigenous and cultivated potatoes alone. Tropical fruits are abundant. And the seafood is incredible. Try ceviche and the local seabass, prepared in a variety of ways. Typical dishes made with scallops (conchitas), mussels (choros), octopus (pulpo) and shrimp (camarones) are plentiful and delicious. Try the popular specialties sopa criolla (spicy soup with beef and noodles) and ají de gallina (shredded chicken in a piquant cream sauce).  Rice and potatoes accompany virtually every dish here. Alfajores (wafer-thin spirals of shortbread dusted with icing sugar) are Peru’s most popular dessert. 

    You’ll also encounter a variety of interesting beverages.  Peru’s most famous drink is the pisco sour cocktail, made from a potent grape brandy. Chicha de jora (fermented red or yellow corn juice) and chicha morada (non-alcoholic purple corn juice) are popular drinks dating from Inca times. Peruvian beers and national wines are also good.

  • We suggest bringing a variety of comfortable, lightweight clothing that can be layered to save space in your suitcase and give you more options for how to dress in Peru’s various regions. Sturdy walking shoes are important. Insect repellant and sunscreen may come in handy, as well as a light jacket and reusable water bottle. A more formal outfit will serve you if you plan on dining out in nicer restaurants.  Keep in mind that your shoulders and knees should be covered while visiting religious sites. For more helpful information please refer to our Packing Tips & Packing List.

  • There is no hard and fast rule about tipping when dining out in Peru. Some restaurants will add a service charge to the bill in which case there is no need to leave an additional tip. In upscale restaurants it is appropriate to leave 10 percent gratuity.

    At the end of your guided vacation, it’s customary to offer your motor coach driver and Travel Director a gratuity.  We recommend the equivalent of $4-5 per person/per day for your driver and $6-7 per person/per day for your Travel Director.  Recommended gratuity for a Local Host and Local Specialist is 1-2 dollars per person, paid at the conclusion of each guided visit.  A convenient option is to prepay your tips before your departure.

  • Baggage on our trips is restricted to one large suitcase per person with dimensions not exceeding 30x19x10 inches and a maximum weight of 50 pounds. You are also permitted one piece of hand luggage, which should be small enough to fit under your coach seat or on the small overhead shelf compartment. Please note that luggage with an adjustable handle and wheels will not fit in the overhead compartment of the coach. Hotel porterage is included in your vacation.

  • You will need to be comfortable on your feet, walking and standing for up to three hours in various weather conditions.  All of our vacations involve walking, often on cobblestone and uneven surfaces in historic city centers.  In order to get the most out of your vacation you need to be able to comfortably walk 1-3 miles unassisted in one day, be in good condition and be able to keep pace with the group. 

    If you need any medications, it is important that you bring enough to last you the whole trip and keep them in your carry-on bag while you travel.

  • We highly recommend our optional Travel Protection Plan, which allows you to cancel for any reason up to 24 hours before departure. The plan also includes trip interruption, baggage loss or delay, and medical and emergency assistance. Click here for a summary of coverage details, terms and conditions.
