Every experience in our Private Trip Collection offers the hallmarks B&R's known for with the flexibility of going with your own group and on your own schedule. Simply pick your dates, pack your bags, and go.
When deciding where to host an exceptional culinary adventure, B&R Trip Designers and the editors at SAVEUR quickly agreed that Peru hit all the marks. Having been recently awarded World´s Leading Culinary Destination by the World Travel Awards and home to Lima, the food capital of South America, Peru has emerged as a popular destination for fantastic cuisine. From cutting edge restaurants to traditional tastes of Peru’s exceptional culinary legacy—like an amazing array of ceviche, aji pepper-spiced stews, Andean specialties and one-of-a-kind Amazonian finds that can’t be
found anywhere else on the planet—there’s nowhere we’d rather be eating right now in South America.
We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.
These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.
“I can’t say I really ‘work out,’ but I’m in good shape and am relatively active.”
“I enjoy a good walk or ride, and feel comfortable while on the move.”
“I get moving at least once a week, and don’t mind a little sweat.”
“I get moving a few times per week and enjoy some exertion.”
“I want to feel invigorated each day and going hard is how I like to do that.”

Visit the authentic Quechua Andean Community and participate in their daily activities such as knitting and agriculture. For lunch we'll enjoy a typical Watia (a high altitude BBQ) before continuing towards Pisac Archaeological site and town. Dinner tonight is at a local hacienda belonging to an old and traditional Cusqueño family.

Miraflores Park Hotel, Lima
Set in one of Lima’s most fashionable areas, the Miraflores Park Hotel takes you straight to the heart of all that's best about this great capital city. Renowned for its beautiful garden location beside the Pacific Ocean, it has breathtaking views out to sea. Colonial architecture, superb museums with Inca gold and Pre-Columbian antiquities, and glamorous shops, bars and restaurants are all just moments from the hotel. View hotel website »
Sol y Luna, Sacred Valley
Sol y Luna blends Old World charm with the tranquility of the Sacred Valley. Our hosts, Marie-Helene and Franz, have made Peru their home since the early 1990s. The stylish bungalow-style cottages on this intimate property are all thoughtfully decorated with local ceramics and indigenous woods. The hotel is surrounded by lovely gardens and features a fully equipped spa. View hotel website »
Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge, Machu Picchu
The Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge embodies the three truths held sacred by the ancient Incas: “Location, location, location.” But besides being the only hotel in the lost city’s citadel, just a three-minute walk from the main ruins, this exclusive retreat also scores high on what B&R holds sacred: it’s been refurbished by the Orient Express group; its services are unequalled in the valley and it has breathtaking llama’s-eye views.

Hotel Monasterio, Cusco
Situated in the heart of the city’s old district, this 16thC monastery has been converted into a deluxe hotel, surrounded by Inca walls and Spanish colonial architecture, with beautiful inner courtyards. The Gregorian music, vaulted ceilings, and roaring fireplace make the hotel lounge a particularly enchanting setting for enjoying a cup of tea. View hotel website »
This trip is rated Occasional. Our daily walks will go on cobbled city streets, grassy terraced hillsides and along the winding footpaths of Machu Picchu. We travel throughout the Sacred Valley at altitudes between 2,900 and 3,200 m (9,500 to 11,000 ft.). You may find that the effect of the altitude will make the walks require more effort than they would at lower elevations. Expect some uneven stairs on our hikes in the ruins as well as some sheer drop offs in places.
