Machu Picchu in Peru and the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro are two of the iconic UNESCO World Heritage sites that were selected by the New Seven Wonders Foundation in Switzerland, as a way to highlight symbols of unity in the modern world and raise funds for their preservation. Luxury Gold can show your clients these extraordinary cultural masterpieces – and many more iconic attractions in Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Peru and Ecuador – on its itineraries in South America.

And that’s not all – this journey includes a visit to a working tea plantation, a private ceremony with a local shaman in Moray, lunch with a local Quechua scholar, and a visit to the Center for Traditional Textiles in colonial Cusco. At Lake Titicaca guests cruise the lake, see the floating islands of Uros, and admire the stone carvings of Amantaní.
