Welcome to the land of the Inca, a short-lived mysterious ancient civilization whose origins are unknown. Although the Incas produced many ornaments and figurines of gold and silver, very little remains due to the Spanish Conquistadors’ greed for precious metals, melted down the jewelry and statues to ship to Spain. The only testament of the Incas that remains is the ruins of magnificent temples and large cities they constructed, such as the ruins of Machu Picchu. This tour will introduce you to the enchantments and heritage of Peru. Here we will sojourn amid a wide array of mysterious archeological riddles such as Machu Picchu, ruins of Ollataytambo, colonial Cuzco and Lake Titicaca, home to the floating islands of the Uros, an ancient Indian lake tribe, still maintaining traditions and way of life as they have for centuries, with opportunity to meet indigenous Indians who still speak the ancient tongue of Quechua and maintaining a traditional way of life.
