Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca, and the enormous, enigmatic Nazca Lines — this is our classic tour of Peru and Bolivia. Explore the world-famous sites of the Inca alongside the intriguing remains of their lesser-known predecessors as we climb into the highlands to the ancient heartland of the Inca empire, which once covered over two million square kilometres...

From rainforest temples to royal estates on the Urubamba; from colonial cities to breathtaking golden artefacts left by the earliest Andean civilisations, this is truly an epic adventure.
