Tour Itinerary

Buffet breakfast daily (B), 2 lunches (L), 2 three-course dinners (D); Local Host service in each city; sightseeing with a Local Guide and transportation as outlined in the day-by-day itinerary (except intra-vacation flights, which are additional; inside visits and special features are shown in UPPERCASE).

Day 1: Arrive Lima, Peru.
Arrive in Lima, where you will be met by your Local Host.

Day 2: Lima–Pisco–Nazca Lines–Paracas.
Enjoy a scenic drive south along the Pan-American Highway to Pisco, the wine capital of Peru. Have your camera handy today as you board your aircraft for a FLIGHT over the Nazca plains, which can only be appreciated by air. Your pilot will point out the mysterious markings known as the Nazca Lines, a series of drawings of animals and geometric figures etched into the parched soil—some up to 1,000 feet long! Theories vary, but the most accepted belongs to German mathematician Maria Reiche, who dubbed the land the “astronomical calendar” of the ancient Peruvians. (B,D)

Day 3: Paracas–Ballestas Islands–Lima.
Head north to the Bay of Paracas. CRUISE out to the Ballestas Islands, which are inhabited by a wide variety of sea mammals and exotic birds, including boobies, sea lions, and Humboldt penguins. The huge Candelabro, an unexplained candelabra-shaped etching on the Paracas cliffside, can also be seen as you cruise back to shore. Later, return to Lima. (B)

Day 4: Lima.
Your included city TOUR focuses on Lima’s rich colonial history as well as the modern city. Lima was the bastion of Spanish South America from its founding in 1535 until the independence of the South American republics in the early 19th century. See the Cathedral, where the remains of Francisco Pizarro are sealed in a wooden coffin and San Francisco MONASTERY with its eerie burial crypts. (B)

Day 5: Lima–Cusco.
Fly to Cusco high in the Andes. Your guided TOUR visits the Santo Domingo MONASTERY, previously the Koricancha Temple, one of the most important temples devoted to worship of the sun. It is said it was covered in gold leaf and filled with golden representations of nature. In the Plaza de Armas, see the Cathedral before taking a short drive outside the city to the ruins of SACSAYHUAMAN with its intricate stone walls, amphitheatre of KENKO, and the Red Fortress of PUCA PUCARA. (B)

Day 6: Cusco–Sacred Valley.
Today, a short drive into the Sacred Valley of the Incas brings you to AWANAKANCHA, where you will learn about the importance of the alpaca (llama) for Inca cultures as well as the ancient weaving techniques. Continue, to the market town of PISAC. Handmade rugs, alpaca sweaters, and jewelry can be bought here at bargain prices. At the other end of the valley is OLLANTAYTAMBO. Here, some of the finest examples of Inca masonry can be seen. (B,L)

Day 7: Sacred Valley–Machu Picchu.
Board a TRAIN bound for MACHU PICCHU and cut a path through the Sacred Valley to this “Lost City of the Incas,” discovered by American explorer Hiram Bingham in 1911. On a guided TOUR, explore this intact fortress with its temple remains, holy houses, and mile-long aqueduct. For hikers, a brisk one-hour walk leads to the Sun Gate, the ancient entrance used by the Incas. (B,L,D)

Day 8: Machu Picchu–Sacred Valley–Cusco.
A morning at leisure in MACHU PICCHU allows you to wake up early to see the sunrise over Machu Picchu. Return to Cusco, where your Local Host will recommend options for your free time. Perhaps visit the Inca Museum or wander through the artisan district of San Blas. (B)

Day 9: Cusco–Lima.
Fly to Lima, where the remainder of the day is at your leisure. (B)

Day 10: Lima.
Your vacation ends with breakfast this morning. (B)

By Theresa T on Sep 03, 2016

i enjoyed every aspect of this trip. the excursions were great and well planned and all guides were wonderful . the hotels were so well situated and food was wonderful.

By James P on Aug 12, 2016

We went to London, Paris and Rome in August. It was our first European trip so we chose to use Monograms to eliminate the stress of booking rooms and arranging transportation between cities. Everything worked flawlessly. The hosts in each city were excellent and very helpful. This made our vacation much more stress free and relaxing.

By Heather B on Aug 04, 2016

This was our first trip abroad and it was a dream come true! Our Monograms hosts in each city made us feel welcome and provided us with excellent advice and were easily accessible always. I was extremely happy with the mix of escorted excursions and independent exploring provided. My only regret was not enough time in York. That little city has so much to offer and we could have done with at least one more day. London was fabulous (with our excursions to Warwick Castle, Oxford, Stratford, the Cotswolds, Stongehenge and Bath.) Edinburgh was beautiful, as well. We were there at the same time as the Fringe Festival which added energy to the city. This was a fantastic trip!

By Anita S on Jul 01, 2016

It was truly a wonderful trip...no problems whatsoever. Guides were excellent and very willing to help you with suggestions to get around their city ..in this case Geneva and Lucerne.

By Robert W on Jun 13, 2016

The day trip Monogram provided was 5 1/2 hours long. They provided no water on the bus trip, did not stop for a lunch break, but visited the Vatican and then the Coleseum and Roman Forum without a break. A lot of walking for one morning since we left the hotel at 7:00 am. Then asked who wanted to take the optional walking tour in the afternoon. No response. A little too much for one day, especially since we arrived in Rome the day before. Experiences with Viking tours are much better.

By Richard S on Sep 29, 2015

Our second trip to Conca Park and Sorrento. They gave us what we asked for, and we are very happy.

By Katherine C on Sep 28, 2015

Hotel in Rome (NH Collection Giustiniano) was great...convenient location, clean & comfortable rooms, quiet and no big crowds. The Monograms host was wonderful.

By Shirley H on Sep 10, 2015

Monogram Tours was first class ... definitely 5 star. Thanks for using them in India ... they made our trip very enjoyable.

By Louise L on Aug 26, 2015

Great tour, great prices, wonderful local hosts, couldn't be better!

Everything happened as expected. We didn't need to worry for being stranded. all pick up and drop off happened without any problem.

By Paul T on May 08, 2015

A terrific trip. The Monograms staff covered every detail, offered numerous suggestions for things to do and was very knowledgeable.

By Minn S on Apr 22, 2015

It is our first River Cruise of any kind. We like it very much as most of the land tours are very informative. The guides for the land tours are all experienced experts of the subjects they presented. Concised, technical and made interesting. Some of the extra tours we booked are also very interesting. All in all it is what we expected and more. We will do it again.

By Carol M on Mar 19, 2015

This trip exceeded our expectations- from organizing it to the wonderful local hosts, everything was perfect.
