Day 1: Arrive in Lima, Peru We know you will be tired from traveling, so your hotel is the nearest possible to the airport.

Day 2: Cusco and Sacred Valley Tour Fly over the Andes to the Inca city of Cusco— 11,000 feet above sea level.  We pick you up from the airport and take you to the considerably lower altitudes of The Sacred Valley.  On the way, you will visit some of the most specatcular Inca ruins above Cusco, including the fortress of Sacsayhuaman.  After time to explore colorful Pisac Market, you have the afternoon free in Ollantaytambo.

Day 3: Machu Picchu by Train Catch the train to Machu Picchu. Arrive with plenty of time to begin exploring the breathtaking Incan city. After your fully guided tour,  you have time to explore Machu Picchu on your own - walking to the Inca Bridge, the Sun Gate, more photos or just quiet contemplation.  Afternoon train to Cusco. Option! Spend a second day at Machu Picchu to climb up the peak of Huayna Picchu.

Day 4: Cusco to Lima You have the morning free in Cusco to visit the Cathedral or Quoricancha (Sun Temple).  Afternoon flight to Lima.

Day 5: Lima to Guayaquil Fly from Lima to Guayaquil, Ecuador for the second part of your trip – the Galapagos Islands!

Days 6—9: Galapagos Islands Cruise After a short flight, you arrive in The Galapagos Islands – brimming with plants and animals found nowhere else on earth.  You will be met there and transferred to your ship to begin your next adventure - a 4 day cruise of the Galapagos Islands (can be extended to 5 or 8 days). Choose between larger, more stable vessels of 90-100 passengers and the smaller, more intimate vessels (16-20).  Choose the ship that suits your traveling style and the sturdiness of your sea legs!  Whatever your choice you will have a comfortable cabin, excellent food throughout and, importantly, naturalist guides who can help you tell your booby from your finch. Itineraries vary depending on your cruise ship, but every day you will have two excursions - boarding a panga (motorized raft) to go ashore and walk with your guide through mangrove, cactus forest and beaches to experience the nature of these amazing islands.
