MACHU PICCHU & THE AMAZON

MACHU PICCHU & THE AMAZON

$1430 per person

This tour will introduce you to two of South America`s greatest icons – Machu Picchu and the Amazon River. The sky-scraping citadel of Machu Picchu was built in the peaks of the Andes around 1450. If its walls could talk they would tell tales of Incan sacrifice, worship and royalty. The Amazon River, meanwhile, is the life-giving artery that pumps its way across South America. Much of its territory is untamed and some is even unchartered. Visits here are as far removed from the rat race as possible.
