This trip is out of the ordinary. The itinerary marries trips to some of Peru’s most famous sights with once-in- a-lifetime experiences. One day you`ll be padding around the ruins at Machu Picchu, the next you’ll be sleeping in a capsule that clings to the cliff face, 1,200 feet above the ground, in Peru’s Sacred Valley. A visit to the Amazon is also on the cards on this tour.
