Machupicchu Peru & Galapagos Ecuador - Amazon Tour
     
Tour Description :    

This most scenic of Ecuador Peru eco-tours includes three top South America destinations. You'll marvel at one of civilization's greatest achievements, Machu Picchu, witness the unparalleled biodiversity of the Amazon Rainforest, one of nature's true wonders, and experience the otherworldly destination of the Galapagos Islands where wildlife rules. In your Andean travels learning about Peru culture, you'll explore the charming colonial town of Cusco, once the center of the Inca Empire and spend time in the magnificent Sacred Valley on your way to the hidden Inca city of Machu Picchu. You'll stay in an indigenous Amazon eco-lodge in a lush rainforest setting. These South America tours kick off with the Galapagos cruise of your choice. Three indelible, distinctly different, experiences, all incorporated into one great trip, truly make the most of your South America travel time.
