Machu Picchu Tours
The ruins of Machu Picchu, "lost" city of the Incas, perch precariously on the spine of an impossibly beautiful green mountain 120 km from the ancient imperial capital of Cuzco, Peru. Miraculously missed by Spanish invaders for three hundred years, it wasn't until American historian Hiram Bingham was led to the site in 1911 that the outside world learned of its existence. The finish line of the modern Inca Trail, your first glimpse of the site upon cresting the final pass at sunrise is a spiritual experience. Surrounded by steep valley on all sides, rising mist floating past stone terraces and grazing llama, Machu Picchu is one place that always lives up to its mythical status.

Get off the beaten path in the highlands of Peru and discover stunning mountain scenery and remote cities few tourists visit. Getting to Cuzco is half the adventure—travel by public bus keeps costs down and allows you to connect with the locals in the rarefied mountain air of the Andes. Climb the legendary Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, the 'Lost City of the Incas'. We operate our own treks in Peru and can ensure the fair treatment of our porters—and an exceptional experience for you.
Highlights: Gazing at Andean vistas, experiencing the culture and mingling with the locals on public buses, conquering the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, sampling the seafood in Lima.
