Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

Love a good mystery? This 17-day vacation to Peru is the perfect escape to delve into the world’s most intriguing lost and found story. Featuring not one, but two days behind the misty gates of Machu Picchu, this below-the-equator tour takes you high into the Andes and deeper inside the Lost City of the Incas to unearth its centuries-old secrets. Navigating the cryptic maze of trails, temples, and terraces in the world’s most famous forgotten city is one for the memory books. Other great finds on this tantalizing tour of Peru? Up-close encounters with llamas, alpacas, and other Sacred Valley locals; vibrant, handwoven textiles in the former Inca Empire capital of Cusco; bold, multicultural cuisine in the foodie capital of Lima; and a warm welcome inside a traditional family home for an authentic taste of Peruvian hospitality. There’s more to squawk about when you combine the wonder of the Andes with the wilderness of the Amazon. Canopy walks, canoe rides, and higher speed motorboat jaunts offer varying perspectives of the macaws, monkeys, and myriad of other rainforest creatures you’ll discover when you start your tour of Peru in the Amazon. When satisfying your inner historian, don’t forget your inner naturalist. Cruise around the famed Galápagos archipelago, where you’ll share the shores with every native species from the blue-footed boobies to the pint-size penguin. A meet-and-greet with a colony of sea lions seals the deal on this wondrous extension to your Peru vacation.

Also, in the Sacred Valley, experience an [LF] El Pago a la Tierra, or Mother Earth Ceremony, performed by a local shaman.

  10. Day 10
    CUSCO
    Sun Worship & Spanish Conquests
    On your guided sightseeing tour of Cusco today, learn more about the Inca and Spanish influence. Begin at the heart of Cusco in the Plaza de Armas (main square), with a visit to the imposing Cathedral, where construction began in 1550 and was finally completed 100 years later. Join a traditional [LF] Pasacalle through the streets of Cusco before continuing to Koricancha and the Santo Domingo Monastery and see how the two sites have become one. The Temple of the Sun at Koricancha was once the most important Inca site, dedicated to the worship of the Sun. The walls, altars, and decorations were all said to be covered in gold—until the Spaniards looted the temple and then built the contrasting Baroque Santo Domingo Monastery on top of the temple’s foundations. Also visit the Temple of Sacsayhuaman, perched on a hillside overlooking Cusco. It remains unfathomable how and when this fortress of gigantic stones—with some blocks weighing more than 350 tons—was built. This evening, your Tour Director hosts a festive farewell dinner at a local restaurant. (B,D)

    LOCAL FAVORITE
    CULTURE & TRADITION A special treat is in store for you when you are greeted by a group of Andean musicians dressed in vibrant Inca textiles.

    ART & ARCHITECTURE Ecuador’s capital city of San Francisco de Quito stands on the ruins of an Inca city as one of the largest and best-preserved historic landmarks in the Americas. Here, a monument marks "Mitad del Mundo" (the middle of the world) - very fitting as Ecuador is Spanish for equator.

  15. Day 15
    CRUISING: SOUTH PLAZA & SANTA FÉ
    Natural Selections
    On South Plaza Island, take a walk through an impressive cactus forest populated with land and marine iguanas. Due to the proximity of land iguanas and marine iguanas here, this is the only place on Earth where you will find the Galápagos hybrid iguana. From the summit, watch for tropicbirds, Nazca and blue-footed boobies, and swallow-tailed gulls. On Santa Fé, a large sea lion colony greets you on its white-sand beach. Walk through a cactus forest in search of the endemic Santa Fe land iguana, the largest in the islands. This island is home to a number of endemic species, including the Galápagos hawk, Galápagos snake, a variety of finches, and one of the four species of Galápagos mockingbirds. You also have time to snorkel in the turquoise waters with sea lions, turtles, reef sharks and spotted eagle rays. (B,L,D)

    TOUR HIGHLIGHT
    NATURAL WONDERS A true rock star of South Plaza Island is undoubtedly the hybrid iguana which is found nowhere else on earth. The island is the breeding ground for both marine iguanas and land iguanas. The breeding season happens to be simultaneous for both species thereby creating this unique population of hybrid iguanas.

This site offers great swimming, a lovely walk along the shore, and a visit to a lagoon with wading birds, marine iguanas, and sometimes flamingos.

    TOUR HIGHLIGHT
    PICTURE PERFECT Warm, gentle waves lap against the glistening sand of Bachas Beach, where life truly is a walk on the beach. Named Bachas as an attempt of locals to pronounce ‘barges,’ the island was once the site of US ships during WWII. Nearby ponds provide a paradise for pink flamingos and coastal birds, including Darwin finches, mockingbirds, and gulls – along with marine iguanas amid the mangrove trees.

Globus/Monograms delivered as expected. The pre and post parts were managed by Monograms. and we were met at every change of locations by an escort. However there were some hiccups not within the control of Affordable tours. On arrival in Lima at 9:30 pm, I was advised that the location of the Amazon lodge had been changed. It was because of civil unrest at the original location and the change was justified. However, they had to know 2 to 3 days in advance, and did not notify me. The new arrangements were great but could not have been made in the one day while I was traveling. Upon return to Lima for the main tour, the guide for the main portion did not know of the Amazon change.--- Also, when I arrived in Quito I was given incomplete and inaccurate written information on the Galapagos portion. I was met at the Galapagos Airport by Kline Tour representatives of the ship, none had a Globus sign as advised. No information on the flight from the islands to Guayquil was provided, the ship had to call others to find what our flight was. The paperwork given to me in Quito listed a different hotel in Guayguil than the one on the original schedule, but that was incorrect, we were taken to the Hilton as scheduled. My cabin on the ship was unpleasant. It was designed as a single, but had two twin beds which left six inches between the bed and the hull of the ship opn one side and mothering on the other. I had to crawl on the bed from the foot. There was no place to store my large suitcase. So, left it out on the second bed, which was against a wall on one side and the 2nd bed (that I slept in on) the other side. The ships phone was on the porthole ledge, no table or chair in the cable. It also was on the lowest deck for passengers. Below me was a two deck space for the ships engines, They were so loud as to limit use of the TV. The next cabin size was a junior suite that was much better and if given the choice, I would have paid extra for the upgrade. Hotels in both countries DO NOT HAVE HEAT, only AC. Take warm sleeping clothes. Two hotels provide small electric heaters (shaped like radiators), The Hilton Guayguil suggested I turn of the fan for the room AC and open the Window. That worked!! I am out of room to add more. But, Good Trip!!

We had a great time but with all the flights between places visited it was tiring and felt like we lost many days just flying. The trip was more tiring than we expected but we learned a lot and saw a lot. Globus took good care of us and got us to all the airports on time with no problems.

This was a more complex and personally challenging experience than our previous Globus tours to Italy, Ireland and Scotland. But it was highly interesting and rewarding. Guides did a very good job ( although Peru director gave out incorrect info about accommodations in Guayaquil Ecuador which led me to make an additional night book at a different hotel, and the Cuzco city tour guide went too slowly, spending too much time in same spot for excessive time).
