Make the most of your travel to South America by combining your Amazon River cruise with our Machu Picchu travel package! A visit to Machu Picchu, the grandest of all the Inca sites, must stand out as a highlight of anyone’s travels. It has the most dramatic of settings, atop an Andean mountain surrounded by other peaks. For all its extent — Machu Picchu has some 200 structures, along with brilliant stone masonry — it was almost forgotten until its rediscovery in 1911 by Hiram Bingham. But there is a great deal more to see, and this Machu Picchu expedition includes a variety of experiences in the great city of Cusco and in the Sacred Valley of the Incas.
