For your foodie clients, Libertador Hotels, Resorts & Spas’ Palacio del Inka property, a Luxury Collection Hotel in Cusco, is offering the Encounter of Two Worlds package that starts with an introductory walk through Cusco City to the San Pedro Market, where guests will begin learning about how the Incan culture and the Spanish legacy have shaped the city and its culinary traditions. On the way back to the stunning Palacio del Inka, a private guide points out a few cultural sites such as the San Francis Convent and the Archiepiscopate Palace, as well as other important buildings. Back at the hotel, clients enjoy pisco sours and/or coca tea and a variety of local specialty snacks at the bar, with its vast artwork and an original Inca wall.
The package is also available for folks staying at the 128-room Tambo del Inka in Urubamba; the property is also a member of Starwood’s Luxury Collection. In fact, guests can start at Tambo del Inka in the morning (check-out and they’ll transfer their luggage to Palacio del Inka), do the tour with the private guide and end at Palacio del Inka after the tour (checking into the Palacio at the end of the day with their luggage already there).
Rates for the excursion for guests staying at Palacio del Inka are $57 pp with a 2-guest minimum; for Tambo, it’s $133. Hotel rates at Palacio start at $300; for Tambo, it’s $330. For more information, visit libertador.com.pe.
