Seabourn Sojourn Cruise Sales Specialist Pierre van Breda escorted a group of guests on a five-day Seabourn Journey from Guayaquil, Ecuador to Cuzco, Peru and Machu Picchu. They flew high into the Andes, to the ancient Inca capital of Cuzco at 12,500 feet of altitude, where they began to acclimate to the thin atmosphere and visit ancient Inca sites and Spanish colonial splendors. The group then took the luxurious Hiram Bingham Express train to and from the ruins of Machu Picchu at 8,000 feet above the Urubamba Valley. After their adventures, they returned to the coast at Callao, Peru and rejoined the ship.
