This six-day module gives you the opportunity to walk in the footsteps of the Inca and get to know their culture better. On a privately guided city tour you will not only explore the former capital of the Inca, but also their historical sites in the area. During a visit to the Sacred Valley of the Inca you can enjoy the picturesque landscape and at the same time learn more about the agricultural cultivation and salt production of this ethnic group. The crowning glory of this module is of course a visit to the “lost city of the Inca” – Machu Picchu!

Discover South America’s ancient ruins, explore colonial sights and wander through vibrant markets to get a real taste of Andean village life in the Sacred Valley.
