The tour Best Of South America - Over 55's Adventure starts in Buenos Aires and ends in La Paz. This is a trekking tour that takes 23 days taking you through Buenos Aires, La Paz and Buenos Aires in Argentina and Bolivia. This is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation in hotels, transport, meals and others.

An unrivalled journey through Argentina, Peru and Bolivia and a trek to Machu Picchu. On this complete panorama of South America we combine the cultural highlights with time in the Amazon jungle and a spectacular day walks in the Andes. Exploring the cultural dimensions of our journey we travel from Buenos Aires, the vibrant Paris of South America, and the magnificent Iguazu Falls to Lima. We continue onto Cusco, with its endearing Inca and Spanish heritage and La Paz with its colourful markets and live music clubs. By contrast, the more active stages of the program will provide further enduring memories. In the rainforest of the Amazon jungle, we undertake gentle canoe trips in search of the prolific birdlife, while in the Andes we trek on ancient pathways. In the company of our experienced guides we follow sections of what were once ancient Inca Trails past traditional villages before finally ascending to the cloud forest to join the last section of the legendary Inca Trail into Machu Picchu.

“Some people say you need a holiday after travelling overseas because it is so stressful and tiring. We came home from our trip feeling excited, refreshed and energized. Your service was excellent, not missing a beat. We felt confident that we would be picked up, looked after and made comfortable in every new location. Your guides were excellent, providing informative tours, going out of their way to anticipate our needs and fulfil any requests we had. We were very impressed with the level of co-operation shown between driver, man guide and local guide to work together to get through difficult circumstances.We enjoyed being taken to local market to enjoy traditional foods and felt very much immersed in the culture, rather than the tourist view only.The balance between organized free time was perfect, allowing us ample time to explore, shop and absorb the culture. Providing quality water at the hotels was excellent and saved us any worry of quality health.We look forward to our next trip with you”

“Very interesting and well organised. Great guides throughout. Wonderful scenery and cities. This was our first time in South America and it won't be our last. We were the only two on the trip as it was early in the season (March start), but was no problem. In fact it is highly recommended.”

“Diego in La Paz was the best guide of all of the trips I have taken with WE.”
If you are arriving on day one of the trip, you will be met at the airport and transferred to the group hotel in the centre of the city. Otherwise please make your way to the hotel listed on your final itinerary – our pre-departure information provides details on travelling to the city from the airport.

Today we undertake a 4-hour sightseeing tour in Buenos Aires. Dependent on the flight schedule of all group members the sightseeing tour starts in the morning or early afternoon (latest at 1pm). The exact time will be advised in your travel voucher. We will be visiting the main points of interest in the city, such as the 9 de Julio Avenue, the widest on Earth, driving down this avenue past the famous opera house, the Colon Theatre and the Obelisk, a symbol of Buenos Aires, the Plaza de Mayo (May Square), in the historic heart of Buenos Aires which is surrounded by some of the oldest and most important buildings: The Casa Rosada (Pink House), where the government's executive branch is housed, the historical Cabildo and the Metropolitan Cathedral, where inside lies the remains of the General José de San Martín. We will also visit La Boca, a typically Italian neighbourhood, with its colourful houses and the famous Caminito walkway, a museum of Arts in the open air. If time allows, we will continue to the modern Puerto Madero neighbourhood with its former port warehouses, now turned into offices, apartments and restaurants. Our city tour continues to the elegant district of Recoleta to visit Recoleta Cemetery and the tomb of the famous Eva Peron. We return to the hotel along the elegant Alvear Avenue.

Overnight Hotel Buenos Aires.
Today we leave early for the domestic airport to take the first flight in the morning to Iguazu Falls (Cataratas del Iguazú International Airport, Argentinean side of the Iguazu Falls), set in lush rainforest on the border of Argentina and Brazil. The flight needs to arrive no later than 11am to have sufficient time to enjoy the Argentinean side of the Falls (please ask us which flight to book if we are not organising your flights). Though not the highest or largest falls in the world, they are very spectacular. The area contains more than twenty-five different cataracts – some small, some absolutely massive. The largest of all is the Boca or Garganta del Diablo. In the afternoon we will enjoy a guided tour of the falls on the Argentinean side.

Overnight at Iguazu (Argentinean side of the Falls).

Please note: Due to the early departure today, breakfast options at the group hotel are limited, however a basic breakfast will be provided (tea/coffee & sandwich).

*All passengers with accommodation in the city of Puerto Iguazu must pay a Municipal Tax. This tax is collected in pesos by your hotel at check-in (approx USD$2 per person per night). The hotel will provide a receipt and this should be carried with you to avoid being charged again if visiting the Brazil side of Iguazu Falls.
Meals
  • Breakfast
During the morning you have free time before we will take a tour of the Brazilian side of the falls in the early afternoon (some nationalities, including Australians, require a pre-organized visa to visit Brazil). Following the tour, we will be transferred to the airport on the Brazilian side of the falls for our onward flight to Lima. You will be met at Lima airport and transferred to the hotel which is well located in the suburb of Miraflores.

Overnight Lima.
Meals
  • Breakfast
This morning we will be taken on a guided tour of the city, founded by Francisco Pizarro in 1535. It has a superb combination of Spanish Colonial and 19th century European architecture. We'll also visit the famous Museo de la Nacion or the Larco Herrera Museum - which give us an excellent overview of the Andean cultures. The rest of the day will be at leisure giving you time to rest in the hotel or just wander around Miraflores, the area of Lima where our hotel is located. Some of Lima's best galleries and shops and restaurants are found in this area.

Overnight Lima.

NOTE: This evening, please be sure to re-pack your luggage for the jungle. Dependent on your accommodation in the jungle the luggage policy differs. Please see pre-departure information (under 'luggage') for more details. You will also be advised on arrival in Lima on the applicable luggage regulations.
Meals
  • Breakfast
We transfer to the airport for a flight to Puerto Maldonado in south-eastern Peru near the border with Bolivia. On arrival you will be met at the airport and taken to the office of the lodge to leave our main bags to be stored for our return. We continue to the river wharf where we board a 30-40 foot open launch for a short river journey to one of our lodges. During this journey which can take between 45 minutes and 2 hours (depending upon the lodge and availability) we can relax and watch the river bank and jungle canopy for the particularly abundant bird life in this region. Among the birds we may expect to see (dependent on weather and river height) are horned screamers, raptors, plovers, terns, macaws, parrots, kingfishers and toucans. Depending on the lodge you are staying at, you may walk for approximately 1 hour to Lake Sandoval and take a canoe for a 25 minute journey on the lake before you arrive at your lodge in the middle of the jungle. The lodges we use are beautifully positioned and apart from being our jungle home, they also serve as a base for naturalists to work from. The rainforest (both pristine primary and secondary growth forest) surrounding the lodges are a naturalist's paradise. During the remainder of the day we go for walks with our naturalist guide along forest trails. After dinner we get a chance to relax and discuss with resident naturalists the research projects taking place in the area. Serenaded by a chorus of jungle noises we go to sleep in our comfortable bedroom.

NOTE: It is important to be aware that the lodges are comfortable but basic - only some of the lodges have electricity or hot water for a few hours a day. Please note that due to demand it is sometimes necessary to use an alternative lodge in this area. While staying at the jungle lodge you may be with other people from other operators worldwide in a group.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
The day is spent enjoying jungle walks to find monkeys and capybaras and also taking canoes out on to some of the jungle lagoons in the area. There is a particularly abundant bird life - including anhinga, hoatzin, horned screamers, raptors, plovers, terns, macaws, parrots, kingfishers and toucans. We can almost guarantee we will see lots of monkey including troops of capuchin, dusky titi, spider & howler, plus possibility of seeing large caymans and giant river otter. Before the evening meal we head out for a short river trip using torches to look for caymans - this always proves to be exciting.

PLEASE NOTE: The program may vary according to flight schedules, weather, river height, group sizes, etc and participants should be aware there is no guarantee of seeing specific animals or birds and in general you may not see much wildlife since the rainforest provides such good camouflage for its inhabitants - but you will have a good chance to experience true Amazon rainforest first hand.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
Early morning departure after breakfast for the downriver trip to Puerto Maldonado and the short flight back to Cusco 11,200' (3,400m), arriving there around midday. You’ll be met at the airport and transferred from Cusco airport to our hotel located in the historic centre where you will have some time to explore the city and also enjoy a few hours of rest, essential to initiate successful acclimatisation to the altitude. In the evening you will meet with your guide around 6pm at your hotel for an initial trip briefing.

Overnight: Casa Andina Standard Cathedral or similar.
Meals
  • Breakfast
Today we have a guided tour of Cusco and its nearby ruins. The city, once capital of the extensive Inca Empire, has seen many changes since Francisco Pizarro's men took the city with such apparent ease in November 1533. We explore the city by foot to appreciate its superbly constructed Inca walls and architecturally extravagant colonial churches and palaces. This also includes a visit of Koricancha, the Golden Temple of the Sun, in ancient times. After this we take a short drive to visit the monolithic walls of Sacsayhuaman along with Tambomachay, better known as ‘the bath of the Inca’. Both sites are spectacularly set above the city. In the afternoon you may have time to explore some of the central parts of the city and a chance to look at some of the great varieties of local craft work on sale in open-air artisan markets and shops. Overnight: Casa Andina Standard Cathedral or similar.
Meals
  • Breakfast
We leave Cusco and head to the Chinchero Plateau to explore Chinchero, an important town in Inca times. The most striking remnant of this period is the massive stone wall in the main plaza which has ten trapezoidal niches. There are beautiful views overlooking the Sacred Valley of the Incas, with the Cordillera Vilcabamba and the snow-capped peak of Salcantay dominating the western horizon. Chinchero is believed to be the mythical birthplace of the rainbow. Next we visit the mysterious concentric circular terraces of Moray which, according to some scholars, could have been an agricultural research centre. From here we head to the salt mines of Maras. This village is a salt-producing centre that dates back all the way to pre-Inca times. There are thousands of salt pools all carved into the mountain side. We walk down through the salt pans to the Sacred valley for a lunch break before heading to our hotel in Ollantaytambo. The rest of the day is free to relax and enjoy beauty of this famous valley. Overnight: Tika Wasi Hotel or similar.
Meals
  • Breakfast
Today we enjoy another day in the beautiful Sacred Valley with a tour of Ollantaytambo. During our time in Ollantaytambo we visit its remarkable temple/fortress set high on a ridge above the village. We also explore the quaint village itself with a fascinating mixture of Inca and Colonial architecture. This afternoon we have a another short briefing with our guide at our hotel and prepare for the day walks ahead.

Overnight: Tika Wasi Hotel or similar.
Meals
  • Breakfast
An early morning departure awaits us for a beautiful 90 minute drive to the trailhead at Patacancha (3750m) from where we start our trek. If it’s market day, we will have a chance to try the local produce before we commence our walk. We follow the course of the small Patacancha River to Huilloq (3520m), a traditional Andean Village that keeps its original way of living. People in this village wear their traditional clothes every day and not just for special occasions, they live in their original houses and their traditions are still part of the everyday life in this community. Here we will have the opportunity to attend a weaving demonstration and to learn more about the technique, preparation of the materials and how natural dye and raw materials are used. We will also visit some of the classrooms at the local high school built by the World Expeditions Foundation almost 10 years ago. We then continue our hike down through steep fields offering us the chance to see how traditional methods of farming still continue to this day. After a 2 hour walk we will arrive at Pumamarca, an archaeological site in the Sacred Valley. We have time to explore this impressive Inca site made of many well built stone and adobe-brick walls and extensive terracing. The nature around us is beautiful and the views are superb. This is also a great place for our box lunch and we enjoy the mountain scenery and pure air of the Andes. After lunch we continue our hike down to Ollantaytambo, passing more Incas terraces and agricultural fields. This hike will take as approximately 2 hours until we arrive back in Ollantaytambo town.

Overnight: Tika Wasi Hotel or similar. Walking time approximately 4 hours.

PLEASE NOTE: This trail is beautiful and should not be mixed up with the Classic Inca Trail. This ancient and classic Inca pathway is less arduous and at a lower altitude than the traditional Inca Trail, and for those not wishing to trek, we can accommodate you in a comfortable location in Ollantaytambo.
Meals
  • Breakfast and Lunch
Early in the morning you will be picked up from your hotel for your spectacular day hike to the lytic workshop and quarry of Ollantaytambo. Our hike will begin at the Inca Bridge at the Vilcanota River. We are going up an old Inca path through terraces and tombs until we reach the base of one of the most important mountains of the area, the Apu Buena Negra, a granite geological formation. After a couple of hours of fairly gentle hiking with terrific views across to the great Inca fortress and citadel of Ollantaytambo, we end up at the quarry of Cachiccata (2700m). It was this quarry from where the Incas used to get material to build the Ollantaytambo fortress. On our way up, we will follow the very same path that was used by the Incas to move massive rocks of several tons down to the fortress of Ollantaytambo. From the quarry we will have an impressive view of Veronica Mountain, one of the most important in the Urubamba range, the Pakaritampu Pyramid and the town of Ollantaytambo and its fortress. We will enjoy our packed lunch here before following another Inca path down to the community of Cachiccata. On our descent we can admire breathtaking views of the Sacred Valley and its beautiful typical little houses, corn fields and rivers. The houses in the community of Chachiccata were built on stone foundations, using adobes (mud bricks) and all have roofs made of straw. From here we will be transferred back by car to our comfortable hotel in Ollantaytambo.

Overnight: Tika Wasi Hotel or similar. Walking time approximately 5-6 hours.
Meals
  • Breakfast and Lunch
Today we will have another early start. After breakfast we will drive to Rumira from where we start our hike. Our spectacular walk follows the left bank of the Urubamba River as we descent further into the Sacred Valley. During the day we get some of the best views of snow peaks in this part of southern Peru, including views of the classic peak of Veronica at 5990 metres. After enjoying our packed lunch along the way, we continue our walk to Piscacucho where the traditional Classic Inca Trail starts. We won’t join other trekkers on the Classic Inca Trail today but we can feel the excitement for our next day when we hike the last section of this iconic trek. Form Piscacucho we will be transferred back to our hotel in Ollantaytambo.

Overnight: Tika Wasi Hotel or similar. Walking time approximately 4-5 hours.
Meals
  • Breakfast and Lunch
After an early breakfast we will take the train from Ollantaytambo to KM104 (2150m). This is an impressive one hour train journey with stunning views of the Sacred Valley and surrounding mountains. At KM104 we will join the very popular last section of the legendary Inca Trail - an opportunity to exchange tales with lots of other trekkers! Below us are laid out the great forest-covered peaks and deep dark valleys - the setting of our goal, Machu Picchu (2430m). On the way we'll take time out to explore the recently cleared extensive ruins of Wiñay Wayna (2600m), before covering the last few miles to finally reach Inti Punku (The Gateway to the Sun) awe-inspiringly set above the 'lost city' of Machu Picchu. Your first view of the ruins really does take your breath away! After a brief 'first look' at the ruins, we take a 30 minute bus journey down to our hotel in Aguas Calientes (2350m) for a well deserved soak in the nearby hot springs (optional). Walking approx 6 hours.

*Important: Please be aware that, because of the Peruvian authorities' new rules on the Inca Trail, there may be changes in the actual trek itinerary. Peruvian authorities have implemented entry restrictions to protect Machu Picchu from the impact of its immense popularity. As of January 2018 there are two time slots (morning and afternoon) in which patrons can enter Machu Picchu for a limited number of hours and must follow one of three predetermined routes. Additionally, all visitors must be accompanied by a guide at all times. These changes have been made to improve the visitor experience and in an effort to deal with overcrowding. World Expeditions endeavour to ensure you get the most of your Machu Picchu experience regardless of these restrictions.
Meals
  • Breakfast and Lunch
Today we start early to explore these remarkable and truly enigmatic ruins. In the afternoon or early evening we depart from Machu Picchu for the train ride back to Ollantaytambo where we transfer to our vehicle for the drive back to Cusco. Here we transfer to our hotel for two nights. NB - depending on train schedules, we may arrive into Cusco very late at night.

OPTIONAL HUAYNA PICCHU CLIMB OR MACHU PICCHU MOUNTAIN CLIMB - For the more adventurous, you can purchase an additional Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu Mountain permit (ask us for costs), and forego the guided tour of Machu Picchu which is non-refundable and non-transferable. Please be aware that this is NOT a guided climb, and it takes a minimum of 3 hours return. Both climbs are very steep (including many small and narrow steps) and can be slippery and are very exposed with vertiginous drops. Before purchasing the permit on your behalf (non-refundable and non-transferable), we require any passengers to sign a waiver form. Note - there are limited Huayna Picchu permits and they sell out fast, if you are interested in this option, we encourage you to contact us as soon as possible.
Meals
  • Breakfast
A good day to relax, do your washing and re pack after the time in the Sacred Valley and perhaps a chance to do some 'tourist shopping', selecting from a great variety of expertly made craft work - including alpaca sweaters and hats, ceramics, weavings and traditional Andean instruments. In the evening we prepare for the next stage of our journey through the Andes.
Meals
  • Breakfast
We depart early in the morning for the 6 to 8 hour journey by private vehicle* to Puno set on the shores of Lake Titicaca at 12,630' (3,820m). The road takes us south along the great valley below Cusco and then as we head further south we start to climb towards the great continental divide at La Raya. To the east we see some of the strange peaks of the Carabaya Range. From the pass we descend quickly onto the vast dry altiplano with its isolated villages and herds of Andean camelid including the alpaca and vicuña. Our first glimpses of lake Titicaca remind us that this is hardly a lake - its more like a vast inland sea that also happens to be the highest navigable lake in the world! We spend our night at our hotel in Puno.

*Note: For smaller groups of 2 - 5 passengers we use the first class public bus to Puno.
Meals
  • Breakfast and Lunch
Puno is a typical high Andean town, set on the shores of the lake and located on the great altiplano that stretches all the way to La Paz. There will be an opportunity to cruise Lake Titicaca – the highest navigable lake in the world – and visit some of the unique floating 'tortora' reed islands of the Uros Indians. The afternoon is free to relax in Puno and explore its streets and markets.
Meals
  • Breakfast
Drive around the lake and across the border into Bolivia to the town of Copacabana - beautifully situated on the shores of the lake. We have an opportunity to savour the delicious Lake Titicaca trout. We have the rest of the day at leisure to explore this small interesting lakeside town or to walk to the top of the great hill above the city that is the destination of many pilgrims from all over Bolivia. We spend the night in an hotel that has great views across the lake.
Meals
  • Breakfast
After breakfast we take a 4 to 5 hours drive via the straits of Tiquina - the narrowest and also by coincidence the deepest part of Lake Titicaca - and on across the immense Bolivian altiplano to its biggest city, La Paz - at 12,800' (3,900m) the highest 'capital' city in the world.
Meals
  • Breakfast
We spend the morning in this fascinating city visiting its many local and tourist markets and one of its museums. The afternoon is free for you to explore the city. On the last evening after a farewell meal we can visit one of the superb 'peñas', live music clubs to watch a variety of excellent bands and soloists playing the magical traditional Andean instruments. La Paz has a reputation as the centre of Andean traditional music.
Meals
  • Breakfast
There is a chance to join an optional tour to the ruins of Tiahuanacu or the highest 'ski-resort' in the world at Chacaltaya. Please discuss the options with your trip guide.

How our Travel Expert Service Works
  • 1 We connect you with a hand-picked and qualified travel expert who can match your trip requirements. The advantage of working directly through a travel expert is that you get the best and unfiltered advice from the very beginning.
  • 2 The travel expert will help you with creating and customising a trip for you. If you have any questions or concerns relating to the trip, the travel expert will also be able to help you with those.
  • 3 When you feel that your trip is exactly per your wish, you'll be able to book the entire trip here on Bookmundi.
The Advantages of Bookmundi
  • Selected Local Travel Experts All our local travel experts have been chosen based on rigorous selection criteria. In fact, we reject 98 out of 100 local travel agencies, and thereby giving you access to the top 1-2% local travel experts.
  • Secure Online Payment and Financial Guarantee Each and every trip is required to go through Bookmundi's secure payment platform, powered by Stripe and supported by SSL. All payments are therefore carried out in secure manners. We are furthermore member of the Danish Travel Fund which gives you a 100% financial guarantee for any money you pay on Bookmundi, even if we went bankrupt (which we we will not!).
  • Trip Replacement or 100% Reimbursement Bookmundi has hand-picked your local travel expert. Our role, as your trusted third party, is therefore to make sure that your entire experience runs as seamless and secure as possible. We guarantee to you that in the unlikely event where a local travel expert cancels your trip after your deposit or full payment has been made, we commit to replacing these services with another equally qualified agency so that your trip can go ahead as planned, or failing to replace it, we will give you a 100% reimbursement.
