Women's Only travel invites you to travel with April Merenda, president and co-founder of Gutsy Women Travel, on Nov. 20, 2208, for 11 days to mystical Peru, the land of the ancient Incas.

Come and discover the secrets of the Urubamba sacred valley and the lost city of Machu Picchu.

Your journey will start in Lima with a cooking demonstration where traditional Peruvian food will be prepared. Afterward, enjoy a tour of Lima.

Continue on to Urubamba, the sacred valley of the Incas. In Chinchero a private weaving demonstration has been arranged, where you will watch weavers from villages as they demonstrate their remarkable skills.

Enjoy the opportunity to be immersed in local culture as you barter with vendors for a variety of handicrafts in the vibrant, native market place.

All aboard the Ollanta train station to Machu Picchu. You will be assisted and take a 25-minute coach ride to the lost city of the Incas, a city that has roused curiosity, intrigue and wonder in the hearts of travelers for nearly a century. Wake up early to see the sunrise over Machu Picchu then travel to Cuzco. Here you will tour the Santo Domingo monastery where you can revel in the Spanish architecture.

Travel by motor coach to Puno and view the dramatic landscapes of the highland plateau. Then you will motor boat through Lake Titicaca for a visit to the Uros Island to view handmade indigenous towns and boats.

Each traveler must have a passport valid for at least six months from the date of departure. Cuzco's altitude is 11,000 feet above sea level. Other altitudes in areas of Peru are: Machu Picchu, 7,800 feet, the Urubamba Valley, 9,300 feet and Puno, 12,600 feet.

The trip includes 10 breakfasts, eight lunches, eight dinners and a tour director throughout.
