Peruvian Pasos in the Sacred Valley

Day 3

An equestrian demonstration featuring Peruvian Pasos

Elegant Peruvian Paso horses are known for their graceful side-to-side gait, their high spirits, and their luxurious manes. The beauty and poise of these remarkable animals are evident as horsemen put them through their places in a private equestrian demonstration at Wayra Ranch in Peru's Sacred Valley.

The Uros people of Lake Titicaca

Day 9

Visit the floating reed islands of the Uros in Lake Titicaca

The indigenous Uro people of Lake Titicaca, on the border of Peru and Bolivia, live on more than 40 floating, artificial islands made from Totora reeds that grow naturally on the lake, following much the same lifestyle as their ancestors did centuries ago. Ride a powerboat to visit them on one of the Islas Flotantes de los Uro, and discover their unique folkways.

Visit the Aymara on Taquile Island

Day 9

The Aymara people welcome you to Taquile Island

Amidst the high elevations of Lake Titicaca, naturally formed Taquile Island is home to the Aymara, an indigenous people known for their hand-woven textiles and traditional way of life, which has changed little from that of their ancestors; they live without electricity or vehicles. A traditional lunch and dances await when you visit an Aymara family at home.

Tambo del Inka – Luxury Collection, Valle Sagrado

Nights 3 and 4

Healing waters high in the Andes

Practicing the art of relaxation and wellness, the Spa at Tambo del Inka believes in the healing power of water, and offers a number of treatment and experiences that call upon its power to soothe and relax, as part of a full range of spa and massage therapies offered. Heated indoor and outdoor pools, whirlpools, Vichy and jet showers, sub-aquatic beds and hydrotherapy treatments are available.

Small Group Departures

Our small group departures, averaging just 24 guests, are designed for travelers who want more time to experience each destination up close and personally. One of the benefits of small group travel is the personalized service and attention you’ll enjoy. Small groups enable our Tauck Directors to spend more time in the places you explore with more opportunities to connect with them. Smaller groups foster camaraderie and lasting friendships among like-minded travelers; you'll engage more closely with local experts and enjoy enhanced insider access, ease of travel and freedom to linger longer.

Solo Traveler Savings

Traveling solo doesn't mean traveling alone – with Tauck, it means camaraderie on a journey with like-minded travelers who share similar interests, enjoying the spirit of travel that makes exploring the world a necessary part of life – and sharing the special travel experiences found on Tauck’s guided land trips and cruises that create lifetime memories. For 90+ years, solo travelers have found a special "travel" home with Tauck in destinations the world over – and we’re offering solo travelers an additional reason to travel with Tauck – special Solo Traveler Savings on select departures.

What you need to know

Before You Go


Travel Documents, Booking and Deposits, and more

No matter where your destination may be, you should bring identification with you; a valid passport is always an appropriate form of identification. Contact your booking agent for information about all necessary documents required for your journey, such as passport and visa information or documentation required for transportation security measures.

Important Information

Health and Activity

You'll find Activity and Pace Levels on all of our trips to give you a better idea of physical activity level – higher numbers mean a more active journey. To fully enjoy most journeys, you should be in good health and able to walk reasonable distances; some of the most memorable sightseeing can only be accomplished on foot and may include unpaved and uneven surfaces. Please consult your physician for pre-departure health advice.
