Lima, Machu Pichu, Cuzco, with extension to Amazon Lodge | PEU

Our A+ Tour collection features exclusive educational programming and immersive experiences that you can only get through EF–they are rated exceptionally high by educators who travel with us.


Under the protective gaze of the Andes mountains rest the centuries-old ruins of the Inca Empire—enduring marks of the civilization that once mastered these heights. Hike through misty mountain trails to Machu Picchu, a mighty citadel perched atop a cloud-wreathed mountain ridge, the crown jewel of the empire and a testament to the Incas' architectural ingenuity. Wander the hallowed corridors of the Korikancha Temple, where the golden glow of history illuminates tales of a bygone era. Immerse yourself in the vibrant tapestry of a local community in Cusco, where tradition weaves itself into the colourful fabric of daily life. Stand in awe at the Sacsayhuaman Fortress, where the colossal stones stand as sentinels of the past, guarding the legacy of a powerful culture. This journey is an invitation to see, touch, feel, and be transformed by the enduring spirit of the Incas.
