Built around 1450, at the height of the Inca Empire, it is located in a gorgeous mountain setting above the Sacred Valley.

Board one of the world’s most luxurious small ships—the Delfin III—and enjoy fine wine, famous Peruvian cuisine, and all-inclusive comfort while venturing deep into the Amazon jungle in search of elusive wildlife.

The cabin and service by housekeeping and restaurant was not up to the standards of other river trips I have taken. The land part of the trip was good. Hotels were 5-star and the tour guide was exceptional.
