Why our trip is different:

  • Source seasonal ingredients in a colourful local market with chef Penelope Alzamora and learn to prepare traditional Peruvian dishes in her home
  • Witness the flavours of Amazonian ingredients brought to life at the chef’s table in Lima’s flagship restaurant, Malabar
  • Be paired with likeminded and affable Limenos for an authentic insider’s experience, and see the things matter to you in Lima 
  • Visit the private home of the distinguished Navarro Reategui family with a sumptuous meal followed by folkloric dancing and a demonstration from their fleet of fine Paso Fino horses
  • Indulge in a private Pachamanca meal (traditional Inca cuisine) paired with a visit to their organic farm in the heart of the Sacred Valley
  • Cook with the Urus on their floating reed islands in Lake Titicaca and learn about traditional medicine
  • Ascend Machu Picchu with an Inca elder as your special guide
