South America Peru Land Tour

Machu Picchu Explorer

Travel to Peru and explore the most spectacular archaeological monument in South America, the ancient Inca site of Machu Picchu. The 5-day Machu Picchu Explorer adventure is designed to complement a Galapagos small ship cruise or Peru Amazon cruise. This privately guided, independent Peru tour can be combined with other regions of Peru such as Lake Titicaca or the Amazon River to craft a custom tour of Peru. 

The journey begins in Cusco, exploring the Sacred Urubamba Valley including Pisac and Ollantaytambo before proceeding by rail to the citadel of Machu Picchu. Enjoy a guided tour of Machu Picchu and an overnight at the famous Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel, a National Geographic Unique Lodge of the World. Charismatic guides versed in archeology, history and Andean culture reveal monumental Inca temples, traditional villages and markets of the Quechua people in Cusco and in the Sacred Valley of the Incas.

In addition to the main 5-day Machu Picchu Explorer that begins and ends in Cusco, Peru, there is also a 6-day alternative itinerary that begins and ends in Lima, Peru. Contact AdventureSmith to learn how to add an additional day in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Our Machu Picchu travel experts are ready to discuss your dream, custom Peru vacation.
