Machu Picchu to the Galapagos

Discover the Amazon’s flora, fauna, and villages

Begin your journey in Lima and spend two nights in the Sacred Valley—visiting important Inca sites and indigenous villages. Travel by train to Machu Picchu, the stunning “Lost City of the Incas,” overnighting at an on-site hotel and exploring the ruins on two tours. Discover the archaeological hub of Cuzco, and enjoy lunch in a gracious family’s home.

Tour Quito, a UNESCO site, then fly to the Galapagos Islands where you spend four nights on Santa Cruz Island in a beautiful hotel, taking day cruises on a privately chartered yacht to nearby islands. Learn about Darwin’s “living laboratory” firsthand as you observe giant Galapagos tortoises and other unique Galapagos wildlife during your excursions. Your journey concludes back in Quito.
