Machu Picchu and Galapagos

A winning combination of Machu Picchu, Peru's premier tourist destination, and the famed Galapagos Islands, one of the world's top wildlife locations

15 days from £5,935pp plus international flights.

A magical combination of human history and natural wonders - Machu Picchu and the Galapagos is a show-stopper!

  • Guided tour of the 'Lost City of the Incas'
  • Tour Cusco and Quito with your guide
  • Seven-night deluxe Galapagos cruise
  • Visit the giant tortoise breeding centre
  • A boat trip through mangrove habitat
  • Snorkel & kayak with incredible marine life

The combination of two of the most iconic sites in the world, Machu Picchu and the Galapagos Islands, creates a holiday of a lifetime. You'll learn about past civilisations in details that will bring them vividly to life and have breath-taking close encounters with wildlife; a true privilege.

This is a holiday of two halves, which will enchant and excite in equal measure. In Peru you'll head to Cusco, high in the Andes. Once an Inca stronghold, transformed into a colonial headquarters and now a thriving modern city, it's a great introduction to human history in this region. And that's just for starters!

Next, it's Machu Picchu… Your first sight of the spectacular citadel sitting on a narrow mountain ridge is one you will never forget. After a guided tour you'll have plenty of time to enjoy the site for yourself.

Usually we'd leave Machu Picchu as the finale to your holiday, as it's impossible to top, but this trip is an exception. The Galapagos Islands are on almost everybody's wish list. They're unique and you may have to pinch yourself to believe you're really here! You'll spend a week on a deluxe motor yacht, with excursions that enable you to see plants and animals that exist nowhere else on earth, with some found only on one tiny island. As if that weren't enough, these creatures have little or no fear of man, so you can get incredibly close. It's a rare honour and one you'll never tire of.

Experienced, professional guides in all locations will fill you with information and insights and, just as importantly, pass on their passion, bringing their respective worlds well and truly to life.
