Overview & Highlights

This escorted group tour takes you to the Lost City of the Incas Machu Picchu and to Lake Titicaca in Peru before flying to the Galápagos Islands to swim with sea lions and cruise with expert guides.

  • Cusco: city tour and Sacsayhuamán
  • Sacred Valley: tour of ruins and villages
  • Machu Picchu: guided tour of the ruins
  • Lake Titicaca: Uros Islands and Sillustani
  • Guayaquil: city tour
  • Galápagos Islands: guided island visits and snorkeling

This is an inspirational group tour which includes some of the continent's most breath-taking highlights. The welcoming smiles of the Peruvian people, combined with the country's rich human culture, past and present, alongside the diverse and hauntingly beautiful landscapes make it an easy place to fall in love with. Survey the Inca temples of Machu Picchu, colonial Cusco, the bucolic splendour of Sacred Valley and Lake Titicaca's vast expanse of shimmering waters. 

The grand finale of this unforgettable trip is a cruise around the greatest wildlife show on earth, the Galápagos Islands. On a similar trip 200 years ago Darwin returned from the archipelago to write the seminal book 'The Origin of the Species'. Step into his shoes and explore the aptly named Enchanted Islands. 

One of the joys of the Galápagos is that each island is unique, with varying landscapes from scorched lava to white-sand coves and forest-shrouded mountains, and each has its own array of wildlife. You can also make the most of the boat and your time at sea; relaxing on deck with a cocktail at sunset, snorkelling with angel fish or swimming with dolphins.
