April – Peru
Whether travelling to Peru for the food, the scenery, the famous sites or the outdoor activities, autumn is a good time to be there.

A&K's eight-day itinerary reveals highlights in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, Machu Picchu with a chance for some hiking as well as the ancient capital Cusco. There are two departures in April at an affordable $3,220 per person.

The intriguing fairy chimneys of Cappadocia are the next stop and you stay in an atmospheric cave hotel. Finish off on the Aegean coast where Ephesus is the major draw card.
