Travel back in time to the Land of the Incas!

Dive into the History and Culture of one of the most marvelous, vibrant, and diverse South American nations for a 2 week EduTour that will change your life!

Your first week will take you way back into Peruvian History with a Walking Tour of Cusco and a Day Tour of the nearby Historic Cities. You’ll also visit Qoricancha, the Inca Museum, and the Tipon Inca Ruins before finishing the week out with the Religious Route and Sacred Valley Day Tours.

During this Ultimate History and Culture EduTour, you’ll also enjoy learning the South American art of Salsa Dancing and have some evenings free to explore on your own!

The beginning of week 2 is full of magical experiences: encounter majestic scenes and awe-inspiring history with trips to Maras in Salineras & Moray, the Potatoe Cultural Tour, and the Regional Historic Museum and Santa Catalina Convent.

Now if the tour ended there, it would probably still be worth the trip. But we haven’t even made it to the end of week 2…

A FOUR DAY TREK through the Salcantay Trail to Historic Machu Picchu! Disconnect from the Modern World and travel back in time as you visit the famed Ancient Incan Temple on foot and spend four days exploring the man-made and natural wonders of the area.

Feel the history of the Incas beneath your fingertips. Walk the same ground they walked. History buff or not, you can’t miss this.

This once in a lifetime trip offers you the chance to expand your viewpoints, dive into a unique culture, and witness history and mythology in one breathtaking place.
