Machu Picchu & Galapagos Islands
Activity Level: Moderately Active
Accompanied by UW Emeritus Professor George "Jim" Kenagy
Near-private access to the enigmatic ruins of Machu Picchu, plus four days’ cruise through the wonders of the Galapagos make for an unrivaled and exhilarating discovery of lost worlds in the 21st century.
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 hewing to age-old customs
- See Machu Picchu, the “Lost City of the Incas,” on a guided tour by day, and at a more leisurely pace in the evening (after all the day-trippers have left!)
- Cruise the Galapagos, Darwin’s “living laboratory,” aboard a privately chartered boat and experience very close encounters with sea lions, pelicans, iguanas, flamingos and more
- Tour three UNESCO World Heritage sites, including Quito, the very first city so designated
- Straddle two hemispheres on a visit to Middle of the World Monument in Quito
- Enjoy extensive sightseeing and first-class accommodations on a small-group tour
Lose yourself in the beauty and mystery of two of South America’s greatest treasures!
