An early start for your flights to the colonial town of Arequipa. You will be transferred to your hotel in the pretty Old Town, with the afternoon to begin exploring and acclimatising.
Day 4
You will meet your private guide for a tour of Arequipa. Most areas of interest are within walking distance, so the majority of the tour will be on foot.

Day 9
You will meet your private guide for a half-day tour of the impressive city of Cusco, visiting its impressive cathedral and Coricancha, the most important temple in the Inca Empire.
