Machu Picchu - Lost City of the Incas, Peru

Visit the 'Lost City of the Incas'

Machu Picchu is one of the most impressive archaeological sites in the world, set deep in the Andes mountains of Peru.

Customer Reviews

Heather

"I went to South America for 6 weeks in November 2014. I found the booking process easy, the members of staff helpful and friendly and the trip itself to be really memorable. The tour leader on my trip was fantastic and would have done anything for us to make it more enjoyable. I'd definitely sign up with Tucan Travel again in the future and would recommend them to anyone."
