Itinerary in detail

Every Jacada trip is tailored to your personal preferences and interests. Below you’ll find a sample itinerary to inspire your own custom-designed journey.

Days 1–2

Overnight in Lima

Enjoy an evening in Lima, Peru’s capital, taking advantage of its world-class restaurants, enjoying a pisco sour and getting a good night’s sleep before your adventure in the Amazon.

Days 2–5

Cruising the Peruvian Amazon

Enjoy your in-depth cruise of the northern Peruvian Amazon, well known for its abundant wildlife. Your day-to-day itinerary will depend on the chosen vessel, cruise length and season, but all involve daily expeditions by smaller boats or guided walks to explore deeper into the rainforest and waterways, as well as visits to local villages.

Days 5–6

A day in Lima

Enjoy the capital of Peru, known for its excellent cuisine and fantastic museums as well as the historic down-town areas. You’ll have all of our recommendations at hand for the best things to see and do in the city to make the very most of your stay.

Culinary tour: Market visit and lunch at La Picanteria

Start with a visit to one of Lima’s most emblematic and picturesque markets, where you can see, taste and purchase the most popular ingredients used in Peruvian cuisine. In the hands of our culinary expert, you may have the chance to try fruits from the coast, mountains and jungle, such as chirimoya, pacay, mango, passion fruit, aguaymanto and aguaje. Then heading to La Picanteria, a restaurant owned by chef Hector Solís. The restaurant recreates the rustic and traditional atmosphere of a picanteria, and the menu varies according to what’s best in the market that day.

Days 6–8

Explore the Sacred Valley

Spend your time relaxing and exploring the incredible scenery of the Sacred Valley. It’s a great place to experience the culture of Peru and the landscape is breathtaking.

Fortress town

Salt terraces


Visit the Inca fortress town of Ollantaytambo. The site was built just as the Spaniards arrived. It is a fascinating place to explore. There is a fortress at the top of the hill (and quite a few steps) which is particularly interesting for the techniques the Incas used in its construction.

Maras and Moray

Explore the fascinating and beautiful sites of Maras and Moray. Maras is an open system of terraces that has been used for centuries to harvest salt from a stream of mineral rich water that comes from within the mountain. Moray is an ancient system of Inca terraces which they used to acclimatise new plants to the high altitude environment.

Days 8–9

Discover Machu Picchu

You’ll travel from the Sacred Valley to Machu Picchu on board the luxurious Hiram Bingham train. The two and a half hour journey takes you through beautifully scenic landscapes. Once you reach your destination, your private guide will take you out on a comprehensive tour of the Machu Picchu citadel, really bringing it to life by detailing the history, significance and myths surrounding it as well as taking you to the hidden corners and best viewpoints. After your tour, you’ll descend to Aguas Calientes for a delicious lunch at the rustically elegant Inkaterra hotel, before an afternoon at leisure. You’ll have some free time to explore the citadel and climb up either Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu Mountain. Both scenic sites offer incredible, sweeping views, but vary in route.

The Hiram Bingham Train from Machu Picchu to Cusco

Board the luxurious Hiram Bingham train once more and head back to Cusco. Departing in the early evening, a full five-course meal is served in the dining carriage as well as drinks and live music in the bar carriage for an enjoyable trip back after visiting Machu Picchu.

Days 9–11

Time in Cusco

Enjoy this beautiful city and UNESCO World Heritage Site. You’ll have our list of recommendations as well as private guides on hand to enjoy the best of this beautiful city. We can arrange a number of private, interest-led tours to booking fine restaurants for you. Your personal travel designer will be able to recommend activities that are most suitable to your interests.

Back in time

All aboard

City and ruins tour

Your expert guide will take you on a private tour of the city, starting at the Santo Domingo convent monastery which was previously the Koricancha Temple, devoted to the worship of the sun. According to the chronicles, it was covered in gold leaf and filled with golden representations of nature. Your next stop will be the Plaza de Armas and the Cathedral. You’ll also visit the remarkable Inca ruins just outside Cusco.

PeruRail Titicaca Train to Puno

The best way to cross the Andes from Cusco to Puno, the PeruRail Titicaca Train features an open-air observatory car, allowing you to take in the majestic views while enjoying the typical music and dances of the Peruvian highlands. The journey takes ten and a half hours.

Days 11–14

Lake side at Titicaca

Spend your days exploring this beautiful area of Peru from the fabulous Titilaka. With the rarefied airs and expanse of calm blue water it’s easy to see why this became a sacred place for the local people. You can enjoy visiting the man-made floating islands of Uros and spend time getting to know the people who live on them, wander market places, the ancient Sillustani ruins and explore the area by boat, bike and on foot.

“Amazing adventure in Peru‌”

We just returned from a trip to Peru that was immaculately planned and put together by Jacada. Every portion of the trip was well organized, and each of our local guides was fantastic. I only have one small nitpick. Our trip included a four-day Inca Trail hike, a three day visit to the Peruvian Amazon, and multiple days in Lima…
