Travel provider: Odysseys

Machu Picchu’s enigmatic ruins and the fascinating Galápagos Islands rank among South America’s greatest treasures, and a small group tour is the ideal way to experience both.  

This outstanding 16-day adventure begins with Lima’s highlights.  Traverse the magnificent Sacred Valley, visiting impressive Incan sites and indigenous villages during a two-night stay.  Taking a scenic train ride to Machu Picchu, absorb this astounding site’s mystery on two tours, overnighting nearby.  

Then encounter the history and beauty of Cuzco and Quito – both UNESCO sites – along with lunch in a Cuzco family’s home.  Spending the next four nights on the Galápagos’ beautiful Santa Cruz Island, cruise on a private yacht to two nearby islands to learn about Darwin’s incredible “living laboratory” from an expert naturalist guide.  

After this unique experience, return to Quito for a final day of touring.  Discover the Amazon’s amazing flora, fauna, and villages with an exceptional 4-day/4-night pre-tour option.
