Itinerary Description:

Lima, the capital of modern Peruvian cuisine, is the first stop on your journey. Balance your time between visits to the city sites and excursions into the culinary landscape. The experiences range from the hands on to the luxurious and refined. Go shopping with a local chef for ingredients to prepare your own authentic meal, and have a lesson at the Cordon Bleu cooking school with the future pioneers of Peruvian dining. Taste pisco and wine over lunch in a vineyard south of the bustling city, and return to its center to be hosted at the dinner table by the family of Casa Aliaga, the oldest colonial mansion in South America that has been occupied by the same family since the 16th century.

Continue into Peru's Sacred Valley, where you will experience the ruins of the past at Ollantaytabo fortress, as well as the centuries-old traditional practices and cuisines common in the villages. Twice you will explore the iconic ruins of Machu Picchu, with the chance to hike Huayna Picchu for a unique view of the citadel.

End the journey in Cusco, taking time to visit the San Pedro Market, the Santo Domingo Convent, and many other intriguing destinations. Have a lesson in regional Cusqueno cooking, and take your final dinner in Peru surrounded by stunning artifacts within the Museo de Arte Pre-Colombino.
