If this is something that interests you, we suggest an Avalon Waterways cruise through Peru, Ecuador, the Galapagos, and the Amazon for a 20-day journey. With this itinerary, you will fly to Lima, Peru, where you will site see with guided tours and an arranged dinner on the second day, we suggest you search for ceviche on your arrival. On day three you make your way to the ancient Incan capital city of Cusco, for a two-day trip to Machu Pichu, which you will arrive by on a scenic route via train through the Sacred Valley. Then on day six, you will visit Cusco and the ruins of Sacsayhuaman before going to Quito, Ecuador. In Quito on days eight and nine, you will visit the famous Otavalo Indian Market, the famous Quito chocolate factory, and be dined in an old hacienda. On day 10, you fly to the Galapagos. Here you will see a tortoise reserve on San Cristobal Island, snorkel, and have guided walks on Española, Floreana, Santa Fe, and Santa Cruz Islands over the course of three days. On day fourteen you will fly back to Quito and have a free day for what you like on day fifteen – a good option is to visit the house and museum of one of Latin America’s most revolutionary and loved artists, Diego Guayasamin. For days sixteen through nineteen, you will go to the Amazon, where you will go by Canoe through a flooded forest, fish for piranhas, visit a local community, and visit a parrot sanctuary. After twenty days, we think you will agree that this journey is worth a lifetime of storytelling. Trips happen every month, year-round.
