What our specialists say...

This itinerary is ideal for those looking to combine the lush and unique ecosystem of the Amazon with the splendor of Machu Picchu. Each day in the Amazon will offer something different as you embark on excursions from your lodge. Activities can include anything from seeking out wildlife on a jungle walk to taking a sunset cruise. Certain lodges are also excellent at catering itineraries towards children and families. Before heading to the ancient Inca citadel, time is spent in the bustling city of Cuzco with its unique architecture, cobblestone streets, and excellent restaurants serving up traditional and contemporary Peruvian dishes. While a trip into the Sacred Valley will open your eyes to the rural communities of the country with bustling markets and friendly people.
