Summary

The Galapagos Islands and Machu Picchu are two of the must-see highlights in South America. Lucky for you, Galapagos and Machu Picchu tours are just our thing! It’s easy to combine Galapagos Machu Picchu into one Peru and Ecuador trip since Lima and Quito (or Guayaquil) are a relatively short flight from each other.

Fly to Lima, the capital of Peru, nicknamed ‘the City of the Kings.’ Your guide and driver will greet you at the airport to welcome you to Peru and escort you to your hotel.

Set out to visit Lima’s highlights on a city tour. Start in the historic district, featuring the main square, the Cathedral, the Archbishop’s Palace, and the Government Palace. Later, visit the Monastery of San Francisco or the Convent of Santo Domingo to admire the quaint colonial architecture of these buildings and learn about the influence of Catholicism in the country. Tour the residential districts and finish off at Miraflores, located on the coast, the most modern and elegant part of the city.

Spend the rest of the day at your leisure. Lima is considered the gastronomic capital of South America, so don’t miss the chance to treat yourself with a tasty Peruvian meal.
