The Amazon -- Sacred Valley -- Cusco -- Machu Picchu -- Lake Titicaca


Everyone who loves to travel has one – a ‘bucket list’. These are places we feel the need to see before we ourselves ‘kick’ the bucket. Websites listing ‘Must See’ destinations always include Machu Picchu. We have combined this World Heritage Site with four more exotic locales, which are sure to impress: the Amazon, the Sacred Valley, Cusco and the Uros Islands of Lake Titicaca.

First, we tour Lima and then off to the Amazon staying in a Jungle Lodge where you can hike, paddle through lagoons, and take riverboat rides. After hanging in the jungle, we visit the Sacred Valley exploring the ruins and market of Pisac and much more. Once in Cusco, the Vistadome train will take us 7,793 feet above sea level to Machu Picchu. We complete the trip by going to Puno. Many consider seeing the floating Uros Islands to be as fabulous as Machu Picchu – decide for your self.

For most of us, it will be our only adventure to this part of the world. We will fill it with sites and experiences found nowhere else on earth. 5 spectacular places in 1 trip!

IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING CANCELLATION

Once you submit your initial deposit and trip application, a minimum of $175 per person cancellation penalty will apply regardless of when you cancel.

This insurance does not cover trip cancellation or interruption prior to departure, nor does it cover reimbursement of lost nights on the tour once it begins. Optional Trip Cancellation and Interruption insurance that will cover these items is listed below.

TRIP CANCELLATION/INTERRUPTION INSURANCE: The medical insurance included within the program protects the traveler in the event of trip interruption due to medical reasons beyond their control, forcing the passenger to leave the trip earlier than expected. The insurance DOES NOT reimburse the cost of the trip due to a cancellation nor does it reimburse unused portions of the trip once a passenger returns early. In order to have this full coverage, the passenger must pay the additional premium amount for the trip cancellation insurance. The premium depends on the amount of coverage desired and is based on the tour cost as indicated. It will cover all non-refundable amounts in the event of a covered cancellation or trip interruption up to the amount of coverage selected.
