  • Today you'll have another opportunity to return to Machu Picchu and explore by yourself — and at your own pace. Entrance fee to the ruins to be paid locally. After your exploration you'll take the train back to Cuzco be met at the station. You'll then be transferred to your hotel.

  • You'll be collected from your hotel again to return to the airport. From Cuzco, you will fly to Lima and then on to Santiago de Chile, where a driver will be ready to take you to your hotel.

  • This morning you take to the air again and fly across the Pacific to the tiny dot that is Easter Island. We've included a stay at an all-inclusive property here. Each evening you'll meet with your guides and discuss the options for the following day. These range from gentle walking tours, or hikes, to more energetic or adventurous options.

  • Today is a day of island exploration, perhaps visiting the nursery where the moai were carved.

  • Another day to continue exploring the island, perhaps visiting the top of Rano Kau, with its stunning views across the whole island.

  • Today you'll leave the island and return to the mainland, where you will spend a final night in Santiago.

  • Depending on your flight time there may be opportunities for tours out in to the surrounding countryside, famous for its wine production. In this version we have included a city tour of Santiago but that can be easily changed. Later on you will be transferred to the airport for your onward journey.
