ANCIENT SITES AND ADRENALINE
This trip shakes up the traditional Peruvian itinerary. In addition to including trips to the country’s most recognizable sights, the tour includes adrenaline activities. So you can expect to be padding around the thought-invoking citadel of Machu Picchu one day, and bulleting along a zip line another day. You’ll be soaking up the colonial sights of Cuzco one day, and soaking up the white water of the Urubamba River rapids the next.
