Machu Picchu & Easter Island Tours

Our Machu Picchu & Easter Island Tours offer a great way to experience the best of Peru and Chile. 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.
