    Journey to Machu Picchu

    The ruins of Machu Picchu are one of the most beautiful and enigmatic ancient sites in the world, and are truely a sight to behold. I can make this spectacular part of the world easily accessible for you, combining it with an incredible cruise itinerary.

    Fred Olsen's intimate and classy Balmoral will take you from Southampton to Peru's desert capital of Lima next January 2011 as part of her world cruise. She takes in a brief visit to Tenerife in the Canaries before continuing on to the white-sand beaches and coconut trees of the colourful Caribbean, then through the iconic Panama Canal and calling into Ecuador before arriving into delicious Peru.



    This mighty voyage alone is a trip-of -a-lifetime, even before our tailor-made add-on. However, the 5 day land-tour to Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley after your cruise is the sweet cherry on the cake.

    Upon arriving into Callao, Peru (for Lima), you will transfer to the airport for your internal flight to Cuzco. That same afternoon, you will embark on a City Tour of beautiful Cuzco. The following day, you will transfer to Machu Picchu, where you will stay overnight, giving you 2 days to soak up everything about this iconic site. You also have a day to the Sacred Valley before flying back to Lima and continuing your journey back to the UK

    This is undoubtedly 2 holidays in one, with a luxury cruise, plus a land holiday of a lifetime in Peru. Prices start from 4499 for this 26 night holiday of a lifetime. Please do not hesitate to call me directly on 0800 408 6125 or email markg@cruise.co.uk for more details.

    My wife and I are going on this cruise and have debated whether or not to go to Machu Picchu. What has (probably) scared us from going is that we are worried about the effects of the hight above sea level, going so fast up without acclimatising.
    Has anyone got any experiences to share?

    I have just realised that the described tour is over 5 days. We are going with the Black Watch (not the Balmoral) and as far as I can gather we are talking about a 2 day trip.

    We did Machu Picchu on our land tour of Peru. Please do not miss this opportunity to see it it is really beautiful. If you take it easy and don't rush you should be okay. Go and enjoy you will remember for ever.
