Ecuador & Peru: Two of the most fascinating and diverse countries in all of South America

Our fourteenth program featuring Ecuador and Peru and one of our most popular tours. Connect with one of a kind wildlife and delve into ancient cultures, from cities bursting with history to extraordinary landscapes – this is Ecuador & Peru. In Peru, visit the current capital, Lima; and the ancient Inca capital of Cuzco, gateway to the Sacred Valley of the Incas and the magnificent archaeological park of Machu Picchu. Then join a cruise in the Galapagos Islands – one of the most undisturbed and incredible eco systems on earth with it’s incredibly unique species and the home of Darwin’s theory of evolution. And finally explore Quito, with it’s UNESCO colonial centre and countless museums and churches.

This program has been featured over the years in several articles in the Medical Post and Doctors Review. To read more please see our 'Featuring Doctors-on-Tour' section!
