October 14 - October 28, 2014
Activity Level: Moderately Active
Check off two "bucket list" destinations and have the time of your life with our upcoming trip to Machu Picchu and the Galapagos Islands. With near-private access to the enigmatic ruins of Machu Picchu and a four-day cruise through the Galapagos accompanied by an experienced naturalist, travelers are given an exclusive look at two of the world’s greatest gems.
Tour highlights include:
- Visit historic Cuzco, South America’s oldest, continuously-inhabited city and the archaeological hub of the American continents.
- Journey through the indigenous villages of Sacred Valley, where residents live much like their ancestors, wearing traditional clothes and adhering to age-old customs.
- Explore the ruins of Machu Picchu. While there, come to your own conclusions about the mysterious 15th-century “Lost City of the Incas” and what its architect had in mind.
- Cruise the Galapagos Islands aboard a privately-chartered boat. You'll experience close encounters with giant tortoises, sea lions, iguanas, and more in Darwin’s "living laboratory."
- Straddle two hemispheres on a visit to the Middle of the World Monument in Quito
