£3,145: Train to Machu Picchu group tour

This 16-day/14-night group tour, departing 11 June, includes flights from London to Lima with KLM via Amsterdam, accommodation in characterful hotels with breakfast daily and most lunches and dinners. Cox & Kings' Latin America product manager, Marie-Louisa Lowther, says: "June is the perfect time to explore Peru. This departure coincides with the Inca's Inti Raymi festival, the Festival of the Sun. It is filled with colourful dances and costumes and is a fantastic insight into the Inca culture and their ceremonies." Along with the train journey to Machu Picchu, the tour features the Andean Explorer from Puno to Cuzco, regarded as one of the best rail journeys in the world. (020-7873 5000; coxandkings.co.uk ).
