Tour Peru with Trains magazine in 2017! In Part One of our tour, we will travel the Andes Mountains, traversing 58 bridges, 69 tunnels, and 13 zigzags — all on an exclusive, private charter. Special Interest Tours and Trains magazine are teaming up with the FCCA (Ferrocarril Central Andino) to offer this VIP experience, an exclusive tour with railroad photography opportunities that cannot be duplicated. The FCCA charter will journey on segments of track that are not available to the public, and travel at a pace for guests to fully appreciate the route. The FCCA is said to be the “highest and hardest” railway and one of the “railway wonders of the world.” To experience this in person at this pace is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience for any trains enthusiast.
In Part Two, we'll travel iconic Peru by rail. We'll start this leg of the tour in the town of Puno on beautiful Lake Titicaca. After exploring that region, we'll travel to the ancient city of Cusco via the Andean Explorer, which claims the title of second most beautiful rail route in the world. We'll enjoy spectacular views of the Andes and Huatanay River. Next, we'll travel to see Machu Picchu, the breathtaking 15th century Incan citadel built high in the Andes Mountains.
Special guests on the tour include Jim Wrinn, editor of Trains magazine, Dr. Juan Olaechea, FCCA Chairman, and Henry Posner III, Chairman of FCCA shareholder, Railroad Development Corporation. This tour takes place Sept. 25–Oct. 5, 2017. Be sure to make your reservation soon because space is limited. Call 727-330-7738 to reserve today!
