Also enjoy guided sightseeing in Cusco. On this Peru tour, you’ll also learn about the local culture. On your motorboat tour of Lake Titicaca, visit Taquile Island, where you’ll see how the local people integrate their Inca and Spanish past, and the Uros Floating Islands, where you’ll learn how the Uros Indians construct their islands, homes, and boats from totora reed. In the Incan town of Ollantaytambo and in Sillustani, visits with locals in their homes give you insight into their way of life. Spend time at the Indian market in Pisac and in Awanakancha, learn about the importance of camelids (llama, vicuña, alpaca, and guanaco) to Inca culture. But that’s not all…you’ll also spend time in the Amazon, where you’ll enjoy canoe rides and walks in search of the thriving flora and fauna. Accompanied by knowledgeable Naturalists, you’ll appreciate the Amazon both during the day and at night. Also experience the thrill of cruising for three nights in the Galápagos Islands. Swim and snorkel in search of sea life, explore the islands, marvel at the many bird species, and enjoy seeing giant tortoises, sea lions, blue and red-footed boobies, land iguanas, and much more.
