The Peru Belmond Andean Explorer is a South American luxury sleeper train between Cusco to Puno, “Lake Titicaca,” and the white city of Arequipa. It is a luxury experience, and Belmond has succeeded in creating a unique travel experience that combines five-star luxury with exciting attractions and an authentic travel experience in this beautiful region of Peru. This is an overnight train with a journey of one or two nights. Four rooms are available: the fun school and the good old school, where the long sofa converts to the upper and lower beds at night; the twin room; or the large school with two beds and two small beds. As you would expect, every element of this luxury project is impeccable, from the decor from Peru, including alpaca throws and Andean fabrics, to the comfort of the bathroom with air conditioning. Oxygen in each room to help you to the top. (It is one of the tallest trains in the world, after all!).

The train has two dining cars whose favorite team of chefs will treat you to gourmet meals during your journey. These menus are designed by one of the greatest chefs in Peru and are inspired by the region’s diversity and variety of Andean products.

The train also has spacious and comfortable lounge cars with a bar and grand piano for evening drinks while enjoying the sunset and music with old and new friends. The scenic drive is also a great place to enjoy the passing sights. We especially like the open space of the observation car, where you can stand outside and watch the countryside go by.

Lounge Car: Gather new-found friends and sit in the Piano Bar Car. A medium-grand piano sets the musical tone as you discuss your day’s adventures. With a refreshing cocktail in hand and sensational passing scenery as a backdrop, it’s the ideal spot to weave together your spellbinding story.

DINING CARS: The two elegant dining carriages serve fresh, colorful, and seasonal dishes using locally sourced ingredients. Our chefs from the Belmond Hotel Monasterio skillfully design menus.

SPA: Unwind in our sumptuous Picaflor Spa Car and enjoy luxurious treatments as you glide through spectacular Andean landscapes. Choose from an exceptional menu of therapies to enhance your Peruvian experience with natural Andean ingredients. To make an appointment, speak to any member of the onboard crew.

OBSERVATION CAR: The Observation Car is the ultimate spot to unwind and let the world pass you by. Breathe in the fresh Andean air from the open deck as the train meanders through breathtaking landscapes.

Maras and Moray + Pachamanca Easily the best tour experience I had during my trip to Peru. I highly recommend Kondor Tours as the customer service is top-notch. James responded to my queries almost instantly each time and was very helpful. We were even treated to a can of cusquenia beer each when we visited the office! Our guide Alfredo was absolutely amazing and we were fortunate to have him as our guide for the tour. He is very passionate about his job and shared so much valuable information with us. He has a very candid character and we were very comfortable throughout! I highly recommend requesting for him as your guide (the best we had while touring Peru for 3 weeks). Also, I would say opting in for and additional traditional peruvian pachamanca meal experience must not be missed. The community people were very warm and gracious hosts and it is eye opening to witness the preparation of such a traditional feast normally done only for special occasions like weddings. We even had time for dancing! Two thumbs up for sure!

3-day Choquequirao Trek We took a three-day private group trek to Choquequirao as a family of five. Kondor Path Tours organized a pick-up and drop-off in Urubamba instead of Cusco and did an extra stop at the Saywhite archeological site. Everything went very smoothly during the entire trip, meals and accommodation were as expected or better. The trek itself is quite demanding (particularly in three days), but the nature/ views/ Choquequirao/ dearth of tourists largely compensate. Anyway, we were looking for a physical challenge! Our guide Oron was great. Explaining, motivating, solving potential problems/ demands. We would definitely recommend Kondor Path Tours.
Proffecional company and perfect guide Kondor Path Tours are so proffecional and easy to work with. We went with them on the 2 days short Inca trail to Machu Picchu with our three children. The correspondence was great and everything was perfectly planned in every detail. Our guide Alfredo was so friendly, knowledgeable and pleasant to be around! Thank you Kondor Path Tours - we couldn’t have asked for more!!
Trip to Rainbow Mountain Excellent experience!! Our guide Odon was prompt with pickup time and extremely friendly. The drove to rainbow mountain was smooth. We did the horseback ride up the mountain, and Odon was right there with us. The actual hike up, he provided support, laughter, and information about the region. Amazing experience with an awesome guide. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience.

Alittle bit of everything We had a last minute change of plans when it came to our tour. We were supposed to visit the rainbow mountain but with the recent protesting we called to see if we could change last minute and they were very accommodating. Odon and Fernando were amazing! They took us to see multiple attractions and made us feel very at home. And kudos to Renee for the amazing driving. I would highly recommend using this company for a tour. We will definitely use them if we ever come back!

Atv Tour Odin and Fernando were great as well as our driver Rene. Very informative about the city of Cusco. Enjoyed our tour with this company and these individuals who took us around. Great time! Highly recommend!!!
Family vacation Kondor path tours arranged a couple of private tours on our last vacation in Peru. Our first tour was the Rainbow Mountains and the next day we did the sacred Valley Tour. The administrative services were excellent, we met at our hotel the day before our tours and our head guide, Fredy, explained everything perfectly, including what to wear and bring for each tour. On the tour days, our guides (Fredy and Juan Carlos) and driver (Juan Carlos) were great! very knowledgeable, considerate about our party, always helpful and ready to answer questions and meet the expectations (completely different expectations because we had different ages in our party (from 11 to 69 years)) of each party member. The rainbow mountain is awesome and is is really helpful to go with a guide that knows about the area, but also about hiking!!!
Excellent guide who stays with you for the entire day The Vinicunca one-day horse tour was fantastic. The friendly and informative Freddy guided us for the entire bus ride and mountain trek. He knew where to stand to get the best photos and made everything fun and accommodating. The horse ride up made it much easier to enjoy the final hike. Lunch was large and tasty. Door to door service.
Awesome Service and Tours Fernando and Patricia were SUPER responsive - usually responded to emails within 10 minutes!!. The arrangements they made for Cusco, Machu Picchu, Sacred Valley, and surrounding areas were awesome. They were waiting for us at the airport and did everything we asked them. Our guide for the four days was Herberth and driver was Juan Carlos. Both were SUPER SUPER great. Juan Carlos was such an amazingly pleasant driver with cute stories. He also was a very safe driver. Herberth was very knowledgable and helpful. Took us all over the places with details about the history and details. We had friends who were not able to climb much and they accommodated us all. On the day we had planned to do rainbow mountain we did not feel great and emailed Fernando at 5am and he responded within 5 minutes with other options for us to do that day. Overall, if you are going to Peru and want to visit the historic sites, you SHOULD go with these people. They are SUPERB!!
