The thrilling beauty of the Galápagos Islands and the rediscovered jewels of the Inca Empire await you on this tour through the Galápagos and Peru. A highlight of your vacation is a tour to Machu Picchu, where you’ll visit this amazing Inca city. Stand in awe as you witness the ancient ruins surrounded by soaring peaks-one of the most majestic images in South America! Also, see the Temple of Sacsayhuaman, which was built in the early 12th century with some stones weighing more than 350 tons. Try to figure out how it was built so precisely without the help of modern machinery and technology!

These are just a couple of the many highlights you’ll see in wonderful Peru. You’ll also see the Nazca Lines in Ica and experience an once-in-a-lifetime thrill in the Galápagos Islands. Just like Charles Darwin, you’ll be able to see many species of animals and birds that call the Galápagos their home. On your 4-night cruise, watch for blue-footed boobies, frigatebirds, sea lions, land iguanas, flamingos, giant tortoises, and more. For even more fun, consider swimming and snorkeling in search of sea life.

From the ancient ruins and fascinating culture in Peru to the amazing wildlife in the Galápagos Islands, for travelers looking for a new adventure, this tour is not to be missed!
