Galapagos, Machu Picchu, & Easter Island Tours

Galapagos, Machu Picchu, & Easter Island Tours offer a great way to experience the best of Ecuador, Peru, and Chile. The Galapagos Islands were the inspiration for Darwin’s On the Origin of Species and provide an unparalleled opportunity to observe wildlife up close. Machu Picchu served as a center of worship, an astronomic observatory, and a private hacienda for the Inca Pachacutec, and was recently named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. And, Easter Island, located 2,200 miles west of Chile in the Pacific Ocean, is home to over 800 Moai statues that stand up to 33 feet tall, and whose origin is still a mystery.

“We just returned from our trip to Machu Picchu and Easter Island…Thank you for a truly great experience.”

Ed Shallenberger
