Our trips to Machu Picchu & the Galapagos will help you get to know these extraordinary destinations up close. In Peru, you’ll enjoy the finest local hotels, carefully chosen to reflect the best of what the country has to offer, whether you prefer a simple B&B style inn, a more refined boutique hotel experience, an exceptional jungle lodge, or some combination of all of the above. Our outstanding English-speaking local private guides will give you a deeper appreciation for the local culture, while maintaining a flexible schedule based on your interests and pace.
In the Galapagos, you’ll be on one of the finest small vessels available. From in depth, firsthand experience, we carefully choose our vessels from among the dozens of options available. Our criteria are simple: we only want to offer the highest quality ships, guides, and itineraries, as well as the best value in any vessel class.
We are careful to create itineraries suited to our travelers’ interests; just let us know if you want more free time built in, or want to add nights in a specific location, or want some help figuring out how to get off the beaten path. Our specialists take pride in putting together itineraries that go above and beyond the ordinary.
You can review the itineraries above to get a sense of some of the options you have, and decide whether you want to stick to the main highlight areas of Cusco, the Sacred Valley, and Machu Picchu in Peru, or whether you might also want to visit the Amazon rainforest (a 3 night extension that adds a unique element to the trip). You can also consider whether you want to do a 5, 6 or 8 day cruise in the Galapagos, or do a cruise oriented towards those traveling with children. We are happy to discuss the details with you and help you figure out how you can get the most out of your time and budget. Please call us with any questions or to discuss your plans.
