Machu Picchu Luxury Tours
One of the New Seven Wonders of the World, Machu Picchu is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most important archaeological sites in Peru, if not the Americas.
The Lost Incan City is situated on a mountain ridge north west of Cusco, 2,400 metres above sea level. It is a marvel of human engineering and a testament to the advanced level of Incan science and culture.
There’s something so special about this place and it really has to be seen and experienced to be believed. Our expert local guides will help you discover the citadel, exploring the best viewpoints and pondering the many questions about its mysterious past. As well as an in-depth private tour, we make sure you have some time to explore the ruins by yourself – you may even like to climb Huayna Picchu for an alternative view.
Machu Picchu can be reached from Cusco and the Sacred Valley by luxury rail services including the Vistadome and Hiram Bingham trains, or by hiking the famous Inca Trail. Our experts are here to help you choose the option that will suit you best on your luxury Peru tour.

All the Jacada people were great to be with. They assisted us from the planning through to the execution of our journey. The home office people were very knowledgeable in setting up our travel plan and the guides and drivers got us to all the places and informed us well regarding the sights. Machu Picchu was the center point of our adventure and the assistance of our guide Nilo made it every bit of our expectations and then some. Visiting the Sacred Valley in advance of M P gave reference to the role and life of the Inca nation and made the visit to MP much more worthwhile. Also, feeding the baby Alpacas that morning was great fun........ As an added bonus to our trip, we were set up with a cooking class in Cusco that was fantastic for us. Peruvian cuisine organized by a master chef and then able to enjoy it all was our best meal of the trip.
Beyond expectations! Work with George and Susann and you will have no worries! My wife and I live in the USA and needed someone to coordinate our trip to The Galapagos Islands, Sacred Valley/Machu Picchu, and an Amazon River Cruise. Our trip was flawless and a guide was holding our hands at every juncture. Go with Jacada for an incredible journey! Thanks for the opportunity to applaud these good folks. James
Every aspect of the travel experience was right on and taken care of from recommendations of sites and length of stay to printed boarding passes at our departure. Selection of hotels and restaurants choices were perfect. Hiking was as advertised, spectacular and tough, but doable thanks to the excellent guide.
65 year old Canadian cardiologist who has traveled moderately previously (Nairobi, Nepal, SE Asia, etc) with the most recent trip to Kyiv Ukraine who wanted an organized excellent educational tour of Peru (Cuzco, Lake Titikaka, Machu Picchu, Amazon, Lima). Jacada was superb with great pretrip internet and telephone consultation as well as guiding my wife and myself thru the entire visit (not intrusive yet comprehensive). When we asked for something additional they organized it to our satisfaction. Fernando the guide in Cuzco/Sacred Valley was the best guide we have ever had, knowledgeable, taking our requests in stride and supporting yet not pushing us. If you want to visit and enjoy a Peruvian trip this is for you.
Our entire trip was extremely well coordinated, we had many change/transfer points and they well all done timely and by highly professional folks
