Machu Picchu - Deluxe

Machu Picchu - Deluxe

Delve into the sacred and mysterious landmarks of the Inca Empire, including famed Machu Picchu, the Lost City of the Incas, and other ancient temples, all precisely constructed without mortar.

DAY 1 – Saturday, January 31st, 2015

After flying into Lima International Airport, you will be met by a representative and transferred to the elegant Country Club Lima Hotel. This five-star property stands proudly among the grand embassies in the capital’s affluent San Isidro district.

Afterwards, enjoy dinner on your own in the hotel or in one of the nearby restaurants and then retire for the evening in a spacious Master Room.

DAY 2 - Sunday, February 1st, 2015

Much of the morning is devoted to the flight from Lima to Cusco, once the capital of the Inca Empire. After arriving in Cusco and checking into the luxurious Hotel Monasterio, you will enjoy free time to acclimate to the elevation (11,152 feet above sea level) and explore a bit on your own.

In the early afternoon, you will embark on a city tour of Cusco, starting with the sacred site of Koricancha. Here, you will admire the lovely Dominican Convent of Santo Domingo that was built on the foundations of the Temple of the Sun, the most sumptuous temple in the Inca Empire. The curved, mortar-less masonry wall at the west end of the church is considered to be one of the greatest existing examples of Inca stonework.

Continuing on, you will see the splendid Baroque-style Cusco Cathedral, built in the mid-1500s on the foundations of an Inca palace. Many of the stones used in its construction were looted from the nearby Sacsayhuaman fortress, your next stop.

Strategically located on a hill overlooking Cusco, the fortress was constructed without mortar like many other Inca structures. Yet the enormous stones (some weighing 200 tons) of the remaining walls fit so tightly that not even a thin blade of grass can slide between them. The craftsmanship is a stunning example of the Inca’s sophisticated construction techniques and architectural skills.

After returning to the Hotel Monasterio, you will spend the evening at your leisure. As you will be dining on your own, you will receive a dinner certificate for a three-course meal and drink. The “dine around” certificate can be used at several participating restaurants.

DAY 3 – Monday, February 2nd, 2014

Following breakfast, you will drive to the train station and board the deluxe Hiram Bingham train, named for the American archaeologist who initiated the excavation of Machu Picchu in 1911. Brunch will be served during the journey, as you take in the spectacular Andean scenery.

Upon arriving in Aguas Calientes, you will drive to the ruins of Machu Picchu to explore this famous “Lost City of the Incas.” Constructed as a royal retreat for the Inca emperor Pachacuti in the 1400s, Machu Picchu was abandoned less than 100 years later, its population probably devastated by smallpox. Because the Spanish conquistadors never found this hidden city, Bingham discovered it largely intact.

Architectural highlights include the Temple of the Sun, designed much like the one in Cusco, several other temples, hundreds of terraces, and a mysterious carved stone situated on a raised platform that towers above the plaza. The stone may have been used for astronomical observations, but no one knows for certain. The Inca had no written language, so there is no record of Machu Picchu’s ultimate purpose. Scholars are still striving to uncover clues as to its mysteries.

After visiting Machu Picchu, you will enjoy a relaxing afternoon tea at the Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge Hotel at the site’s entrance, and then board the Vistadome Train back towards Cusco. Along the way, you will stop for dinner at the Sol Y Luna Hotel and then transfer back to the Hotel Monasterio for the evening.

DAY 4 – Tuesday, February 3rd, 2014

After flying back to Lima, you will transfer to the port of Callao to embark the ship.

Culinary Creations: Chile at its Best

Culinary Creations: Chile at its Best

Chile’s passion for food and wine take center stage on this wonderful excursion of hands-on cooking classes and winery tours, punctuated by explorations of Chile’s historical architecture and German-style alpine villages.

DAY 1:

After disembarking in Valparaiso, you will accompany a local guide and chef to the fish market at Caleta Portales. Here, you will pick up all the necessary ingredients to prepare the traditional Chilean dish “Caldillo de Congrio,” a dish so culturally important that Nobel Prize-winning Chilean poet Pablo Neruda wrote an ode to it.

Then, it’s on to the Cardonal Green Market, another bustling marketplace with stands overflowing with fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables. As no traditional meal is complete without an aperitif, the chef will purchase the ingredients for the ritual preparation of Chile’s iconic Pisco sour.

Afterwards, the chef will continue on to prepare the kitchen for your cooking class, while you explore Valparaiso, a city whose architecture earned it a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage distinction. During the tour, you will meander through the hilly old part of Valparaiso, as well as the impressive downtown section.

You will also ride two “ascensores” or funiculars; one of them climbing to the top of Concepción Hill, an area revered for its boutiques, mansions and restaurants. The chef will be waiting at the Hotel Gervasoni, where everything has been arranged for your culinary experience.

Following your immersion into Chilean cuisine and additional time to further explore this part of Valparaiso, you will check in to the Hotel Gervasoni to spend the evening. Dinner is on your own.

DAY 2:

After departing from the hotel, you will travel east into the beautiful Casablanca Valley, a wine-producing area since 1875. The growing conditions are ideal and similar to those in California’s Napa and Sonoma valleys. The valley is oriented in such a way that daily ocean breezes cool the grapes on the vine and result in intensely fruity wines.

Here, you will visit two signature wineries in Casablanca: William Cole and nearby Casas del Bosque. You will enjoy tours and tastings at both wineries. The white wine produced in the Casablanca Valley is particularly noteworthy.

Following the winery tours, you will visit the esteemed Puro Caballo Ranch, where you will discover the unique qualities of the Chilean horses and watch the gauchos skillfully ride them. Then, after a pisco sour cocktail near the stables, you will enjoy a traditional Chilean barbecue lunch featuring various grilled meats. You will also learn how to prepare the meal.

Then, it’s on to Santiago for a panoramic tour of the city, during which you will see the Presidential Palace and main square downtown, among other attractions. After checking in to the Hotel Noi Vitacura, the remainder of the day and evening is at your leisure, with dinner on your own.

DAY 3:

After breakfast, you will check out of the Hotel Noi Vitacura and transfer to the airport to fly to Puerto Montt. Upon arriving, you will be met by a local guide and begin a panoramic tour of the city. One of the highlights is the city cathedral, which was built of wood in 1856 and topped with a copper cupola.

Departing from Puerto Montt, you will head towards Frutillar, an area where many Germans settled beginning in the 1850s. The majority of the houses were built in a style reminiscent of those in Germany’s Black Forest region. Upon arriving at the Se Cocina Restaurant, which overlooks Lake Llanquihue, you will participate in a hands-on cooking class and then dine on the traditional dishes that you have prepared.

Afterwards, you will drive along the Pan-American Highway to Puerto Varas, another city known for its alpine, German-style architecture. It too overlooks Lake Llanquihue, where the perpetually snow-covered Osorno and Calbuco volcanoes are reflected in the lake’s clear waters. Following free time to shop and explore the handicrafts market near the main square, you will transfer to the pier in Puerto Montt and embark the ship.

Iguazu Falls from BUE for in-transits

Iguazu Falls from BUE for in-transits

Experience the extraordinary natural beauty and wildlife of South America during this memorable journey to Iguazú Falls ~ one of the great natural wonders of the world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Iguazú River Delta is located in the center of a sub-tropical forest spanning 457,000 acres, and possesses unique characteristics that have made it an important economic and ecological reserve for its neighboring countries. On this overland adventure you will visit the northeastern section of Argentina - an area that is inhabited by over 400 different varieties of birds and marks one of the most beautiful landscapes of the world.

80m high and 3km wide, the Iguazú Falls span the border between Argentina and Brazil and is made up of many cascades that generate vast sprays of water producing one of the most spectacular waterfalls known to mankind.

DAY 1

Transfer from the pier to the Domestic Airport to board your flight to Iguazú. Upon arrival, you will be met by your local guide and then transferred to Iguazú Falls National Park. A buffet lunch will be served at La Selva Restaurant shortly after your arrival.

Following lunch, enjoy a motorized boat cruise (zodiacs) which allows you to view the falls from water level and get close enough to feel the spray and energy created by this great mass of falling water. Please note that you will get wet on the zodiacs. Along the way, your guide will explain all about the trees, birds, falls and more. Note: the zodiac loading area is not accessible to wheelchairs. There are approximately 100 steps down / up to reach the boats with no ramps. The zodiac tour is optional and any guests wishing to remain ashore can do so. There are shaded areas and benches to sit on throughout the park.

The name Iguazú means Great Waters in Guarani. This natural wonder is taller and twice as wide than Niagara Falls and combines 275 falls in a massive, magnificent cascade stretching for nearly 1.7 miles. Situated on the border between Argentina and Brazil, its waters pass over lush, sub-tropical greenery. One of the most breathtaking sights you may see during your tour is the fluttering of more than 700 species of butterflies that make this area their home.

After the zodiac tour, check-in at your hotel and enjoy some free time to relax before dinner.

Overnight at Loi Suites Hotel or similar

DAY 2

After breakfast at the hotel, check out & transfer by bus to Iguazú National Park to visit the impressive Garganta del Diablo (Devil’s Throat), where the Iguazú River crashes down almost 80 metres forming many rainbows. You will reach this fantastic sight via a unique train ride - the Eco-Train - which travels on a 1000-meter footbridge from the train station to the Garganta del Diablo. You will end your visit with a moderate walk through one of the circuits of the National Park on the Argentine Side. Along the way traverse over catwalks and view the observatories. You will transfer to the Iguazú Airport in time to catch the flight back to Buenos Aires where you will return to the ship.
