Overview & Highlights

A well priced holiday where you visit two of Latin America’s top highlights: the wildlife rich Galápagos Islands off the coast of Ecuador and Machu Picchu and Cusco, Peru’s biggest stars. 

  • 5 night cruise around the Galápagos Islands
  • Panoramic driving tour of
  • Lima
  • Half day city tour of Cusco and visit Sacsayhuamán Inca fortress ruins
  • Full day excursion to the
  • Sacred Valley of the Incas
  • Guided tour of Machu Picchu ruins

A comprehensive well-priced holiday combining a Galápagos cruise  with colonial Quito and the best of Peru: Machu Picchu, Cusco, and the Sacred Valley of the Incas.

This economical two week holiday is really packed with highlights: you won’t believe you’ve managed to see and do so much.  Arriving in Quito, Ecuador, you are whisked off to your hotel right on the historic main square of the colonial heart of this Andean city, and have a day to explore. Then you fly off to the Galápagos Islands, 1000km off the coast but only a couple of hours by air: what a difference though, you are now basking in the tropical sunlight of this enchanting volcanic archipelago.

Board a friendly, good value motor yacht for a five day cruise exploring the islands; viewing its extraordinary inland, shore and marine wildlife from a hiking trail, an inflatable boat, or your snorkel.  After this you fly down to Peru to visit probably the continent’s top sights: Machu Picchu and Cusco, cultural icons in a gorgeous highland setting.
