Watch the beautiful, changing landscape from the elegant comfort of a very special train.

And visit Lake Titicaca, where much of life and agriculture continues as it has done for centuries

You'll stay in comfortable hotels and guest houses in excellent locations and enjoy some great meals. It's an ideal family holiday for children aged from about 10 - but if your children are younger contact us and we'll see where elements of the trip can be tailored to suit.
