Itinerary

Welcome to South America! Consisting of 13 countries, it is the fourth largest continent and home to some of the world's most recognisable UNESCO World Heritage sites. This evening we arrive in Lima, the capital of Peru. The city was founded in 1535 by the Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro, and is now a mix of modern shopping malls, high rise buildings, large urban sprawl and beautiful colonial architecture. As Lima was the seat of Spanish rule for some 300 years, it offers wonderful churches, cloisters and monasteries. Meet your fellow travellers this evening over a welcome drink in the hotel.

Adventure awaits as we fly to Puerto Maldonado, a city with a laid-back ambience and a sweltering climate. Puerto Maldonado is also known as the gateway to the southern Amazon Jungle, an incredibly diverse ecosystem, filled with rivers, lakes, rainforest and incredible native wildlife. Think monkeys, otters, parrots and caiman! Upon our arrival, we'll cruise along the Madre de Dios River to our jungle accommodation for the next three nights. We'll take an informative walk for our first experience in the jungle, followed by a twilight boat trip to see if we can spot the caiman that live along the riverbank. Tonight, we'll enjoy a group welcome dinner. (B/L/D)

We venture into Tambopata Candamo National Reserve this morning and hike through the jungle to Lake Sandoval. Here we'll head out by canoe in search of the endangered river otter, red howler monkey and blue and yellow macaw. We return to the lodge for lunch before taking a motorised canoe to the Inkaterra Canopy Walkway Interpretation Centre. Here we learn about its construction and the Inkaterra Asociación's conservation projects. We'll cross the 7 hanging bridges connecting the treetops and enjoy the breathtaking vistas. Keep an eye out for the white-throated toucans, woodpeckers, trogons, squirrel monkeys and the three-toed sloth.

We then descend to the forest floor and cross the wooden bridge over the swamps, learning about the flora and fauna of this flooded ecosystem. This evening we'll discover another side of the rainforest on a nocturnal walk before returning to the lodge for dinner and some relaxation time. (B/L/D)

After an early breakfast we go on excursion to a native farm. We'll learn about their cultivation techniques and taste some of the local products. This is followed by a trip to the botanical gardens, where we'll discover the variety of medicinal plants that are considered part of the ‘natural pharmacy' of the region. We return to the lodge for lunch and some time to relax. Later this afternoon we enjoy a Cocha water excursion in a dugout canoe. Why not try your hand at some native fishing using the ‘catch and release' techniques? Or sit back and relax, enjoying the scenery and observing the many birds. Tonight we'll be able to see different species going about their nightly routines by participating in the Inland Collpa. (B/L/D)

This morning we visit the butterfly house in Puerto Maldonado before transferring to the airport for our flight to Cusco, the Inca capital of ancient times. High up in the Andes Mountains, Cusco is also known as the gateway to both the Sacred Valley and the world-famous site of Machu Picchu. On arrival we are transferred to our hotel and are greeted with some coca tea to help us acclimatise to the altitude. Later, we'll take a walk to Plaza de Armas, Cusco's main square. The plaza features wide stone pathways, colourful gardens and is home to the city's iconic buildings; the Cusco Cathedral and Church La Compañía de Jesús. This evening, we'll enjoy a group dinner at Casa Qoricancha Restaurant. (B/D)

Our first stop for the day is the San Pedro Market - a huge, open-air market with an eclectic variety of produce and interesting wares for sale. This is a great stop for freshly squeezed juices and beautiful pastries, or maybe you'd like to try the local delicacies of roasted guinea pig or soup with a jawbone garnish. We'll then explore the fascinating fortress of Sacsayhuaman, one of the best known Inca ruins in the Cusco vicinity before visiting the religious complex of Qoricancha, which contains the Temple of the Sun. It served as the main astronomical observatory for the Incas and was considered home by 4,000 priests and their attendants. Later we tour the 17th century Cusco Cathedral – the façade of which is a fine example of colonial baroque architecture.

Special Experience: Learn how to make the deliciously sweet and sour cocktail, Pisco Sour. For decades it has been regarded as the signature drink of Peru. (B)

It's a short trip this morning into the famed Sacred Valley of the Incas. The Urubamba Valley, as it is also known, encompasses the heartland of the Inca Empire. The valley was formed by the Urubamba River and contains numerous archaeological remains and villages. It was valued by the Incas due to its special geographical and climatic qualities and was one of the empire's main points for the extraction of natural wealth. We first stop at the village of Awanacancha, where we'll meet native weavers and see the South American camelid species – llamas, alpacas, guanacos and vicuñas. We'll then continue onwards to the lively Pisac markets, well known for its handicrafts, and the Inkariy Museum, which showcases pre-Hispanic Peruvian cultures. (B)

Today begins with a visit to the ancient Inca village of Ollantaytambo, one of the best surviving examples of Inca city planning. We'll climb the steep stone staircase to enter the fascinating Incan ruins that form an impressive fortress. The next stop is the Seminario pottery workshop in Urubamba which contextualises styles and techniques used in Peru's ancient cultures. Special Experience: Enjoy an Andean brunch, with traditional chicha and cuy, a regional delicacy of guinea pig. Finally, we will explore the amazing salt ponds at Maras, which have been harvested since the days of the Incan Empire. (B)

A magical day ahead. This morning we take an early Vistadome train ride through the Urubamba Valley to the breathtaking ruins of Machu Picchu! On arrival in Aguas Calientes we check into our eco-resort before taking a local bus up the mountain to the entrance. Our guide will give us an in-depth introduction and description of the site and we'll also have the opportunity to explore the ruins at our own pace afterwards.

Alternatively, if you have chosen to undertake the optional Inca Trail (must have been pre-booked at time of tour booking), you will have an early start, taking a train to the ‘Km 104' station where your trek commences. For those on the trek, the first site along the way is the incredible archaeological complex of Chachabamba. From here the trail ascends for 8 kilometres. At approximately the 4 hour mark we arrive at the impressive ruins of Wiñay Wayna built into the steep countryside.

As we continue, we'll enjoy magnificent views of the Urubamba River valley and the Choquesuysuy archaeological complex. We continue along a trail of flat stones on the edges of cliffs in highland jungle for another hour or so, until we arrive at the picturesque Sun Gate of Inti Punku - a wonderful photo opportunity. The trek ends in the ancient Incan city of Machu Picchu. Our guide will take us through this mind-blowing site, pointing out the most important parts of the ancient civilisation. (B/D)

This morning is at leisure. You have the option to return to Machu Picchu for a second visit to enjoy the beauty of this ancient phenomenon before the crowds arrive. We'll then return to Ollantaytambo via the Vistadome train. On our way to Cusco we'll stop at Chinchero and visit the temple, which is built on the Inca walls of the Inca Tupac Yupanqui Palace. The temple is made up of Inca stone structures, which were used as foundations for colonial construction and shaped its design.

Optional Excursion: Your tour already includes one visit to Machu Picchu; however, you may wish to take a second visit to explore this phenomenon further. Alternatively, you may wish to also incorporate a climb up to Huayna Picchu (considered to provide the best view over Machu Picchu). Please note both options include entry into Machu Picchu and transportation (guide not included). If you choose the Huayna Picchu option, entry to the peak is also included. Half day Machu Picchu only - from $84pp US. Half day Machu Picchu incl. Huayna Picchu – from $102pp US

Please Note: Huayna Picchu has a limited number of tickets available each day, with two times available to visit – 7.00am and 10.00am. There is a restriction of only 200 visitors per time slot. These usually sell out well in advance and it is unlikely it will be possible to arrange entry upon arrival into Aguas Calientes. To avoid disappointment, we suggest you purchase your entrance ticket online in advance to secure entry. However, it is important to note that this option is non-refundable even if entry is cancelled due to bad weather. If possible, we recommend booking the earlier time slot, visiting Huayna Picchu first prior to touring the Inca site. The online option will only secure your ticket to Huayna Picchu and entrance to Machu Picchu; the return bus from Aguas Calientes will be in addition and will need to be arranged locally. (B)

Enjoy a day at leisure in colourful Cusco. Full of plazas, archaeological ruins and interesting craft shops, it's a great place to explore and experience on your own. Why not check out the Casa Concha Museum, containing artefacts from Machu Picchu that were found by Hiram Bingham and recently returned by Yale University? (B)

Today we travel through the majestic Andean Mountains to Puno, located on the shore of Lake Titicaca - the world's highest navigable lake, fed by 25 rivers! Along the way, we'll stop at the Raqchi Ruins – an Inca archaeological site. The complex has many buildings and structures, with the most prominent being the Temple of Wiracocha. This large structure reaches 92 metres tall and is said to have been built to appease Wiracocha, the ‘creator god'. We'll then stop for lunch at a local restaurant before continuing to Puno. (B/L)

This morning we visit an Indian community on the floating Uros Islands. What makes the Uros Islands so unique is the material used to create them - reeds that are found in Lake Titicaca are used for the foundation. They are bound and connected by ropes, then anchored by logs which go deep into the bottom of the lakebed. The main activities of the people who live here are fishing, weaving and handicrafts, which are then sold to visitors. Later we discover Taquile Island - famous for its craft production and beautiful textiles. The island is narrow at approximately 1 kilometre wide and between 6-7 kilometres long. There are numerous pre-Inca and Inca ruins as well as Inca terracing on the island to explore. (B/L)

After breakfast we make our way to the town of Chivay, home to the Colca Canyon - the world's deepest canyon at twice the depth of the Grand Canyon. Along the way we'll pass through the villages of Patapampa, Chucura, Toccra, Vizcachani and Patahuasi (Chinito). Enjoy the incredible scenery created by the valley's many magnificent volcanoes as we travel through. (B/D)

An early start this morning to reach the Cross of the Condor. Special Experience: The Cross of the Condor is the deepest point of the Colca Canyon. It is where the majestic Andean condor can be seen cruising over the morning thermals. Watching this amazing bird in flight is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We'll then explore the villages of Yanque, Achoma, Maca and Pinohollo. On our way to Arequipa, we stop at Antahuilque to observe the importance of the balconies and mountain terraces.

We also visit Choquetico and view the remains of the hanging tombs. (B/L)

A popular spot for tourists, Arequipa, the 'white city', has something for everyone. In fact, Arequipa is Peru's second largest city and its historic centre is a UNESCO World Heritage-listed site. Highlights of this morning's city tour include a visit to the Convent of Santa Catalina, the Plaza de Armas, the Cathedral (outside only), Church of La Compañía and the Carmen Alto viewpoint, for a stunning view of the surrounding volcanic landscape. The afternoon is at leisure for you to rest and relax or explore at your own pace. Tonight, we'll enjoy a group dinner at a local restaurant. (B/D)

This morning we fly to Lima, Peru's largest city and its capital. This incredible place is covered in history, gloriously messy and full of aesthetic delights. The city has world-class food, an incredible nightlife and mesmerising colonial-style architecture. We'll begin exploring Lima during a half day city tour. Highlights include the Cathedral, the San Francisco Convent and the Larco Museum. The afternoon is at leisure for you to rest and relax or explore at your own pace. Tonight, we'll enjoy a group dinner at Huaca Pucllana. (B/D)

We bid farewell to Peru this morning and transfer to the airport for our flight to vibrant Rio de Janeiro, the Cidade Maravilhosa (Marvellous City). Situated amongst lush, forest-covered mountains and breathtaking beaches, Rio is one of the world's most lively and beautiful cities. (B)

Imagine being on top of one of the most iconic sites in one of the most famous cities in the world, and all before it opens to the masses. Today we will do just that! Special Experience: Waking early, we will drive to the mountain peak of Corcovado before the official park opening hour and take in the breathtaking, panoramic views over the city of Rio as the sun slowly rises. Sitting beside the tranquil waters of the scenic Rodrigo de Freitas lagoon, we'll enjoy our sumptuous, picnic breakfast and reflect on our early morning experience. One of the ‘New Seven Wonders of the World', Christ the Redeemer is situated at the peak of the 700 metre high Corcovado Hill. There will be so many fantastic photo opportunities here.

Keep those cameras handy as we ride the cable car to Sugar Loaf Mountain, offering amazing vistas over the entire city. Sugar Loaf Mountain's name is said to have stemmed from when blocks of sugar (sugar loaves) were placed in conical moulds made of clay to be transported on ships. The shape given by these moulds was similar to the peak, hence the name. (B)

This morning we'll visit Museu Do Amanhã, which translates to the Museum of Tomorrow. This science museum was designed by Spanish neofuturistic architect, Santiago Calatrava on the waterfront at Pier Maua. We'll enjoy some time to explore the different exhibits, which focus on sustainable cities and an ecological world. This afternoon is at leisure to relax or explore some more at our own pace. You may wish to visit the beautiful botanical gardens or simply stroll along Copacabana Beach, watching the world go by. We'll enjoy a group dinner this evening at Fogo de Chao.

Optional Excursion: This guided walking tour traces the route of open-air artwork located in some of Rio's oldest neighbourhoods, from the original settlement of Praça XV to the recently renovated Porto Maravilha. This area's historical importance can be told by its monuments, statues, art installations, murals, and graffiti. Candelária Church, the Olympic Pyre, Maua Square and Rio's Art Museum (MAR) are some of the highlights in this 4km walk. The amount of walking can be established by your interests and conditions. Most museums close on Monday in Rio. Entrance in any of the sites can be included for an added cost. Includes driver and guide. 4 hours – from $85pp US

Optional Excursion: This tour starts in the historical centre of Rio de Janeiro. The architecture of Praça XV, Arco dos Teles, the França-Brasil House (Old Alfândega), the São Bento Monastery, and the Lapa Arches are prime examples of buildings from the Colonial era. The Banco do Brasil Cultural Museum, Municipal Theatre, Museum of Fine Arts and the Public National Library are examples of architecture from the Imperial era. Next stop on the tour is the neighbourhood of Santa Teresa. This traditional neighbourhood of Rio de Janeiro is home to mansions from the beginning of the 20th century, built mainly by the English who sought out this region for its mild climate. Nowadays, it is a hotspot for artists and eccentrics. The antique cable car still runs through the narrow streets as the main form of collective transportation. Includes transportation on a seat-in-coach basis. 4 hours – from $46pp US (B/D)

Today we fly to Iguazu Falls! Straddling the borders of Brazil and Argentina, Iguazu Falls is one of the world's biggest waterfalls with a total of more than 240 individual falls. The waterfalls are surrounded by lush rainforest. They are more than 3 kilometres wide and 80 metres high, making them wider than Victoria Falls and higher than Niagara Falls. After our arrival, we'll see the Brazilian side of the falls and travel the canyon path, discovering the panoramic views over San Martin Island. We will get wet, so bring a spray jacket!

Our next destination is Parque das Aves Bird Park, set in 12 acres of beautiful rainforest and home to more than 150 species of birds, including colourful macaws, toucans and flamingos. This afternoon there is the option to take a helicopter flight over the falls. This can be organised locally through your guide and is at your own expense. Optional Excursion: Departure is from the entrance of the Iguazu National Park (Brazilian side) and can be taken when doing the Brazilian Falls tour. Please advise your guide if you are interested in this tour. (min 2/max 4 participants per helicopter) 10 minutes – from $173pp US (B)

We'll spend today exploring the Argentinian side of this natural masterpiece. A small train takes us into Iguazu National Park and we continue on foot to the falls. We'll stand on a platform suspended over the thundering Devil's Throat - the largest of the waterfalls, to feel (and hear) the water's power. Warning: you will get wet! (B)

Today we fly to Buenos Aires, Argentina - the 'Paris of the South'. With European charm, gourmet cuisine, plenty of shopping, colonial architecture and grand parks, Buenos Aires is a delight for the senses. It's also the cultural capital of South America. (B)

This morning we enjoy a city tour of Buenos Aires, including the main square - Plaza de Mayo, known for La Casa Rosada, 'the Pink House' and office to the President of Argentina. We'll also walk through the famed Recoleta Cemetery where Eva Peron was laid to rest and visit the vibrant neighbourhood of La Boca. Special Experience: Visit the stunning Colon Theatre. The main opera house in Buenos Aires, it is ranked as the world's third-best. Our final stop for the day takes us to the exquisite El Ateneo Grand Splendid bookstore. Recognised by National Geographic in 2019 as the most beautiful bookstore in the world, this historic building was once a palatial theatre that has since been meticulously transformed into an opulent haven for lovers of literature. (B)

Enjoy a day at leisure to relax or explore. You may choose to hit the shops of Calle Florida and the Palermo districts or explore the city's wealth of museums and art galleries, either way there is lots to see! This evening we'll experience a lively tango dinner show - an absolute must while you are in Argentina. Don't forget your dancing shoes - we'll participate in a tango lesson too. (B/D)

Today marks the end of our South American adventure. We hope you leave with fantastic memories as we begin our journey home. (B)

Wonderful 28 Day Bunnik tour of South America   1 , NSW, Australia, Oct 2018
It was an Incredible tour. I've travelled with Bunnik before & I've never been disappointed. We did so much & saw so much. It's pretty full on & we were tired by the end of each day but it was wonderful.
Stop procrastinating and go! 4 , Australia, May 2014
I booked this tour with Global Journeys, as I came across the trip on their web site. All went smoothly. The buses on tour were first class, clean and modern. Accommodation was brilliant. Machu Picchu, in particular, was beyond belief. Whilst Casa Andrina Private Collection Valle Sagrado was excellent, if there was any way of skipping it and going to ...read more Inkaterra for an extra night, it would be worth doing. Inkaterra was amazing. Or tour guide Gina really looked after us. Her knowledge was great and her humour made her fit in with the Aussies. The sightseeing in Cusco, Machu Picchu, Colca Canyon, Sacred Valley & Iguassu Falls was mucho excellent!! How do you describe sitting on the edge of a 4,000m canyon as Condor fly about you? I took 420 photos in about 90 minutes and still could not capture the experience. Almost every day was new highlight. Not a better or poorer highlight, just a different one. The jungle brought the group together, Cusco just assaulted the senses, the Sacred Valley was an incredible experience then onto Machu Picchu. One of the best days in the last 20 years. Add to this the amazing Iguassu Falls and you have an incredible experience. Anyone thinking of doing this trip should stop procrastinating and go!
Well organized with plenty of spare time in most places 0 , Australia, Feb 2014
South America tour was excellent. Guide was excellent and the local guides in each place were very knowledgeable and spoke very good English. Overall accommodation was of the highest standard.
