Dear ABOTA Friends,

We are excited to provide a bucket-list opportunity for you and your family and friends to experience the wonder and mystique of Peru. Exploring these areas will reveal fantastic contrasts of old and new, sophisticated and rustic, metropolitan and jungle, mountains and ocean, and luxury and simplicity. Most are familiar with its geographical wonders in Machu Picchu and the Amazon Rainforest, but Peru’s rich history, diverse wildlife, sumptuous cuisine, and devotion to art and textiles by the friendly and welcoming Peruvians are certain to capture your imagination.

We will begin our journey by gathering in Lima, a vibrant city of contrasts, culture and commotion. Ancient pyramids and other pre-Inca ruins are scattered among high-rise modern buildings, historic churches and museums brimming with ancient treasures. As many as 12 million people call Lima home, and the exponential growth of the last decade has created a gastronomical surge in upscale restaurants featuring Peruvian cuisine fusions. We will stay in the most exclusive district, Miraflores, where the JW Marriott offers ocean views to all guests and a spacious lounge area where I am certain our ABOTA travelers will want to gather. A food tasting tour is among the many optional activities we have in store for you in Lima, as well as a visit to the Larco Museum, and a walking tour of the boho district of Barranco, an ancient fishing village which is now brimming with small art shops and cafes.

We will then fly to Cusco and make our way down to the Sacred Valley, (Valle Sagrado), to Urubamba. This stop will allow us to acclimate to the elevation and provide a luxurious home base for exploring Machu Picchu. Our resort, Tambo del Inka, is an oasis of luxury set in the heart of an ancient and modest village. There will be an opportunity to explore local artisans’ workshops and galleries, as well as nearby Ollantaytambo and the Moray ruins. Our journey to Machu Picchu begins with luxury train service and ends with a motorcoach delivery at the entrance of the Citadel. For the more adventurous, earlier departure from the Sacred Valley may be arranged to allow you to hike a portion of the Inca Trail on your way in.

From Valle Sagrado, we travel by land to Cusco, where the ancient history of the pre-Incans, Incans, and Spaniards is displayed throughout the city’s museums, architecture and cathedral. Cusco is home to a fascinating open-air market, as well as boutique shopping for pottery, handmade textiles and everything alpaca!

As reluctant as we may be to leave the mountains of Peru, the Amazon Rainforest awaits for those who continue on our post-trip. Small luxury vessels insure that you have a front-row seat to all the flora and fauna along the Amazon River. Crew members outnumber guests on these vessels which accommodate only 16-20 cabins, so you will want to act promptly to secure your room. Small numbers allow the crew to cater to our every whim, the weather conditions, and our preferences. We will trek into the jungle to observe amphibians and birds, visit a local village, and explore the river by skiffs to see pink dolphins, several varieties of monkeys, hundreds of bird species, and exotic foliage and flora. All the while, we are pampered with excellent cuisine, massage treatments, entertainment and specialized service that can only be found on such an exclusive basis.

We don’t make any promises here—only a trip of a lifetime! Come enjoy it with us!
