September 3 to 16, 2018

Hike among some of Peru’s most enigmatic ruins and learn from Professor John Rick about the ancient civilizations that created them.

The statistics are impressive. Marvel at the Amazon River, the second-largest river in the world and the largest by water volume, carrying one-fifth of the world’s fresh water to the Atlantic Ocean and providing nutrients to the world’s largest and most biodiverse rain forest. Highest of standards. Cruise aboard the custom-designed Aria Amazon that boasts five-star cabins and cuisine, and stay at top-rated hotels in Cusco and near Machu Picchu. Magical mystery tour. Enjoy this opportunity to explore the Incas’ remote 15th-century citadel of Machu Picchu, a mystical, awe-inspiring site.
