About this trip

Discover the ancient Inca ruins and local culture of Peru... Explore the Inca capital of Cusco and the Sacred Valley to witness living history around every corner. Ascend into the clouds toward Machu Picchu in a 1st class panoramic train with breathtaking views of the Andean landscape. Spend the night under the shadow of the mighty Machu Picchu for easy access to this ancient wonder.


Machu Picchu!: You'll have 2 chances to visit this bucket list-worthy site and explore it in depth whereas most visitors just do a day trip there and head back to Cusco.


Coca leaf reading: Purify your spirit with this ancient practice performed by a shaman just like the Incas did centuries ago!


The secrets of chocolate: Learn all about chocolate, from beans to bar, and its role in the local culture. Then, create your very own treat in a fun and tasty workshop.

Itinerary

Day 1
Lima

Welcome to Peru! Arrive in Lima and settle into your hotel in the vibrant Miraflores district which is full of great restaurants, cafes, shops, pubs and more. Depending on your arrival time, you'll have time to explore your new surroundings such as Huaca Pucllana, an adobe pyramid built over 1500 years ago! Or stretch your legs with a walk on the oceanfront boardwalk and through El Parque de Amor with its mosaïc walls and a giant cheeky statue depicting two lovers embracing. Otherwise, kick back and relax with a glass of wine at your Spanish colonial-era hotel. 


Included:

  • Activities: Free time
  • Accommodation: Boutique hotel

This was such an amazing trip. Andy our guide was off the charts fantastic. It could not have been any better, it was above and beyond my expectations. Thank you Globe Drifters for making all of the arrangements. I've made friends for a life time.

This Thailand trip was more of an adventure than a vacation! I'm not sure how they were able to pack so many exciting activities and locations into 2 weeks while also offering tons of free time. I met interesting people, made some new friends, and fell in love with the Thai people and culture! Currently shopping for my next Globe Drifters trip!

I loved this trip! The itinerary was really exciting as there were so many different environments I enjoyed living in. From beaches to jungles and then from llakes to the beautiful city of Chang Mai-I could not of asked for a more diverse experience. Jodie, our Guide, was an absolute delight to be with. She was funny, full of fun but when it mattered, she was absolutely on the ball in organising us so that we stayed safe in the house. I can honestly say that this is one of the best holidays I have been on. Thank you so much for arranging this.

This trip was absolutely wonderful! The group we had all got along really well, and it totally added to the fun of the experience! We did and saw a lot of really cool stuff that I likely wouldn’t have been able to manage on my own. Most of the guides were also really helpful and friendly, and it was nice to have what I described as a “Vacation Mommy” handle everything for us. The accommodations were gorgeous (the hotels in Cappadocia and Sirince were especially impressive!). Also, I don't know if you noticed but, YOU GO ON A HOT AIR BALLOON RIDE! That bucket list experience alone makes this trip a great one. Some days felt a bit overpacked (I could have done without the whirling dervish performance, personally), and some of the travel occasionally felt overwhelming — but the chemistry of the group helped lighten that kind of stuff up. The trip, for the most part, felt pretty well organized but I would have liked a tiny more free time on some days. Overall, this is a fantastic trip and I would highly recommend it to others (in fact, I already have!) I will definitely be booking with Globe Drifters in the future!

Thanks so much for the kind words and recommendation, Elyse! It sincerely puts a smile on our faces to read that you had the trip of a lifetime! We appreciate your feedback and are making adjustments to next year's trip regarding guides and free time. Hope to see you again on another adventure! :)

This trip exceeded our expectations. Our leader Rioger Andy Guilarte Joubert was superb. One of the best we have had traveling all over on at least 15 trips.
