Lima, Cusco, Sacred Valley, and Machu Picchu - 4 days for $1093

This is a great program highlighted by the best of South American culture, namely, the grand Machu Picchu complex built by the ancient Incas. The Peruvian scenery is also delightful. As Machu Picchu was built on forested hillsides, culture and nature combine more dramatically here than most anywhere else on Earth.
