Father’s Day has passed by, but it’s never too early to start planning the next big adventure! Gondwana’s tour of Machu Picchu, Cusco and the Sacred Valley has been recommended by 4 publications as a bonding experience for fathers and their families. Travel with Dad and cross Peru off his bucket list, explore archaeological ruins and learn about a beautifully intact culture.
See Peru on the Vistadome Train
Remember when the train was the ultimate form of luxury travel? Even if not, the train ride between Aguas Calientes and Cusco is an awesome way to see southern Peru. Safe, modern and comfortable, the Vistadome is a great way to travel in style. Traveling In Heels shares that the glass-walled Vistadome Train offers the “…most scenic views and innumerable opportunities to capture panoramic photos of the Andes and Peruvian countryside.” Offering local Peruvian food, entertainment and drinks, the Vistadome experience takes travelling by train to new heights.
Machu Picchu & Inca Culture
Brazil’s Oyster.com reports, “Peru’s iconic Machu Picchu site will be limiting visitors starting in 2019, so it’s the perfect year to make sure dad gets there.” A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Machu Picchu is an amazing representation of Inca culture. Seeing this man-made structure, made only by sheer manpower is baffling. The drainage systems, staircases, terraces and layout features are impressive, especially because they were built in the 15th century! For all history, carpentry and architecture buffs, Machu Picchu qualifies as an amazing destination.
Explore Cusco in Style
Known as the historical capital of Peru, Cusco was once the cultural center of the Incas. Pre-Columbian archaeological ruins, cathedrals, plazas and more are kept in pristine condition to preserve them for future generations. Guests who identify as “foodies” will appreciate the unique Andean cuisine, which focuses heavily on the potato, one of the region’s staples. Walking through the bustling streets, while appreciating the markets, textiles, architecture and food is a stunning combination of modern and traditional lifestyles. Do as Luxury Travel Magazine recommends and “…scour the winding streets of Cusco…” looking for insight into this ancient culture.
