Fantastic treasures await you on this river cruise vacation to Peru and the Galápagos Islands. Enjoy a walking tour of Lima; guided sightseeing in Quito, where you can have your photo taken at the "Center of the World," and also in Cusco, the former capital of the Inca Empire; and an excursion to Otavalo's famous Indian market, where you can shop for beautiful textiles, artwork, and other unique souvenirs. Also, visit the fascinating Inca constructions of ancient Puca Pucara, which translates to "Red Fortress," the magnificent Temple of Sacsayhuaman, which overlooks the city of Cusco, the Inca fortress of Ollantaytambo, and mystical Machu Picchu. Then, fly to San Cristobal Island for a fantastic 4-night Galápagos Islands cruise onboard the recently refurbished Treasure of Galápagos. In the company of a local Naturalist, you'll encounter indigenous plants and animals found only in the Galápagos Islands, such as giant tortoises, Galápagos fur sea lions, and marine iguanas-just to name a few. Also, enjoy an amazing opportunity to snorkel in the turquoise waters and see the colorful fish, sea lions, and perhaps a penguin or shark!

Next, fly to Coca, where you'll travel by canoe to your lodge in the Amazon Jungle. Spend three nights here and enjoy a rainforest canopy walk, guided night tour to see the wildlife that comes out at night, cruises through the flooded forest, and spend time with the natives on a visit to a local village and school. Ancient ruins, spectacular scenery, an amazing variety of animals in their natural environment, and historic buildings-this cruise vacation has it all!
