Discover the best of Peru as you travel to the high Andes and the magnificent ancient citadel of Machu Picchu, the most important archaeological monument in South America. Accompanied by our local guides specialized in archaeology, history and Andean culture, visit monumental Inca stone temples and explore the fascinating towns and Quechua Indian markets of Cusco and the Urubamba (Sacred) Valley. Guides take you hiking to remote villages in the highlands outside the Sacred Valley of the Incas where you learn about weaving, farming and daily life. A portion of trip proceeds support a nearby community center restored by Wildland Adventures where native students can go to study after school. Traveling through the land of the Incas, you’ll stay in comfortable boutique hotels – including the cozy Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel, with options to upgrade hotels throughout the itinerary to create a more deluxe, custom itinerary.
