Overview Itinerary Pricing


Combine the best of Peru and Ecuador, visiting Machu Picchu in Peru and the Galapagos in Ecuador!

This special itinerary includes our top recommendations for both countries.

In Ecuador, visit historic Quito in the high Andes and add either a trip to the market city of Otavalo or to beautiful Cotopaxi National Park. After flying to the Galapagos, explore the islands on a first class cruise led by expert naturalist guides to view seabirds, iguanas, sea lions, giant tortoises and marine life.

In Peru, travel to Cusco, the heartland of ancient Inca culture. You'll discover the city of Cusco, the highlights of the sacred valley and the amazing citadel of Machu Picchu.

The tour can run in reverse, starting in Peru and ending in Ecuador. We recommend a 5-day Galapagos cruise, but we can also arrange other options including 4-day cruises, 8-day cruises and land-based Galapagos options.

We can also offer extensions to the Amazon (in Ecuador and in Peru), to the Ecuadorian highlands, and throughout Peru including Lake Titicaca and Colca Canyon.

Feel free to inquire with us regarding international or internal flights - we help you book all the necessary fights for the trip.
