From day one, this tour is so full of his­tory, cul­ture and amaz­ing sights it’s dif­fi­cult to know where to be­gin! You start with a city tour of Lima, Peru’s cap­i­tal. You then travel by train on the sec­ond high­est rail­way in the world, as­cend­ing to nearly six­teen thou­sand feet. Stun­ning gorges, epic tun­nels and photo op­por­tu­ni­ties galore await. Your An­dean ad­ven­ture con­tin­ues apace. Af­ter the Salt mines of Maras, you visit the world-fa­mous Inca site at Machu Pic­chu, then tour Cusco, the an­cient cap­i­tal of the In­cas and home to the fa­mous Tem­ple of the Sun. You’ll cruise across Lake Tit­i­caca, the high­est nav­i­ga­ble lake in the world. With a ride through the An­des on one of Peru’s most lux­u­ri­ous trains to savour and travel on one of Bo­livia’s few pas­sen­ger trains, the ‘Ex­preso del Sur’, the rail­way as­pect of your tour is not ne­glected this tour is as spec­tac­u­lar and spe­cial for the rail­way en­thu­si­ast as any.
