Day 1 UK to Lima

Our VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your flight to Lima.

Day 2 - 3 Lima

On arrival you are free to explore and on day three, a tour of Lima begins with a walk around the Plaza Mayor, the city’s historic heart. The afternoon is at leisure.

You stay at Jose Antonio Hotel (4*) or Four Points by Sheraton Miraflores (4*).

Day 4 Sacred Valley

We fly to the Inca heartland of Peru. Passing through Cuzco, we arrive in the Sacred Valley.

We’ll visit the well-preserved fortress of Ollantaytambo and the village of Pisac, noted for its lively market and stone Inca buildings.

You stay at Sonesta Posadas Yucay Hotel (3*) or Casona Yucay (3*).

Day 5 Machu Picchu

One of the standout highlights of Latin America is Machu Picchu; Peru’s ancient archaeological masterpiece.

The sheer scale of this complete city once buried in the jungle is simply unparalleled. The complex is considered to have been constructed at the height of the Inca Empire between the 15th and 16th centuries.

Day 6 Sacsayhuaman to Cuzco

The ruins of another Inca fortress at Sacsayhuaman offer a wonderful, panoramic vantage point on Cuzco.

Take some time to absorb the site and its views before enjoying a city tour of Cuzco.

Day 7 Santiago

Transfer to the airport for a flight to Santiago via Lima.

Day 8 Santiago

Explore the colonial buildings and modern towers framed by the snow-capped peaks of the Andes on a tour of Santiago today.

We’ll visit the National Museum, San Cristobal Hill and the bohemian Bellavista.

Day 9 Valparaiso to Viña del Mar

A full-day excursion north of Santiago introduces two contrasting cities.

Valparaiso, Chile’s main port city, has in places a strong British character from the 19th century when Britain was Chile’s biggest trading partner.

Viña del Mar could scarcely be more different - a popular, yet peaceful summer resort noted for its fine beaches.

We stop at an award-winning winery for a brief tour and tasting.

Day 10 Puerto Varas

Today we fly to Puerto Montt, gateway to the Chilean Lake District.

We enjoy a short tour before continuing to the town of Puerto Varas, overlooking the vast Lake Llanquihue.

Day 11 Puerto Varas to Vicente Perez Rosales National Park to Nahuel Huapi National Park to San Carlos de Bariloche

Enjoy an unforgettable day of scenery as we travel across lakes and through the dramatic Andes into Argentina to the city of San Carlos de Bariloche.

En route, we cross Lake Frias and the immense, glacier-carved Lake Nahuel Huapi.

Day 12 San Carlos de Bariloche

We take a scenic tour of the region, stopping at the foot of the Campanario Mountain, the Llao Lao peninsula and the Angostura River, in the shadow of the Lopez Mountains.

The afternoon is at leisure.

Day 13 San Carlos de Bariloche to Buenos Aires

After a free morning in Bariloche, we fly to Buenos Aires.

Day 14 - 15 Buenos Aires

Known as the ‘Paris of the South’, Buenos Aires is a city of simmering excitement and a tango heartbeat. We enjoy a morning tour of the city’s highlights.

For your second day in the city, explore at leisure or join an optional excursion to a typical Argentinean Estância to learn about the daily life of the gaúcho, South America’s answer to the cowboy.

Day 16 Iguazu Falls

Today we fly to the World Heritage Site of Iguazu Falls - a stunning natural border between Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay.

Taller than Niagara and twice as wide, Iguazu Falls are an unforgettable sight.

Day 17 Iguazu Falls

Cross the border to the Brazilian side of the falls, where carefully constructed walkways and viewing points yield breathtaking panoramic vistas.

Relax or explore independently this afternoon.

Day 18 Rio de Janeiro

Today we fly to Brazil’s capital, Rio de Janeiro - the ‘samba city’.

Day 19 - 20 Rio de Janeiro

Enjoy a full-day tour of this world-famous city, including a cog-train ride through the Tijuca Forest to see the iconic Statue of Christ the Redeemer, plus a day at leisure.

We’ll have a farewell dinner in a popular churrascaria on our final evening.
