Treasures of Peru

Explore the archaeological hub of the Americas

A land of archaeological, cultural, and natural treasures, Peru draws people eager to learn about the distant past and encounter a vibrant present. As our small group takes in some of the country’s highlights—Cuzco, Machu Picchu, and Lake Titicaca—we will immerse ourselves in the riches of a land off the beaten path.

Travel to the beautiful Sacred Valley where highlights are the colorful Indian market at Pisac, the Incan farming town of Chincheros, and the massive Inca ruins of Ollantaytambo. Then traverse the snow-capped Andes, stopping to visit several small villages, before ending your journey in Lima.
