Machu Picchu Tour and Galapagos Cruise — Overview

Introduction

Enhance your Galapagos adventure with a visit to Machu Picchu. We begin with an overnight in Lima, Peru, then fly to Cusco for a walking tour of historic Cuzco. We explore Sacsayhuaman above Cuzco en route to the Urubamba Valley to overnight at a country inn.

The next morning we catch the early train to Machu Picchu for our 3-day/2-night stay at the ruins. You will have time to explore the less-visited corners, to contemplate the ruins at your own pace, visit the Inca Bridge, hike to the Sun Gate, or take optional hikes with our guide to Huayna Picchu and Machu Picchu Mountain.

Then it's off to Ecuador for a Galápagos adventure including an overnight on the Island of Santa Cruz to complete this nature and cultural experience!
