Itinerary In Detail

Good Life Expeditions carefully selects the best destinations and pace, and offers you a choice of attractions to visit on some of the tours. Like all our itineraries, this can be personalized and tailored for you and your travel style.

Starting in the capital Lima, enjoy a tour showcasing the contrast between old and new Lima. Visit the historic downtown district filled with beautiful colonial architecture and impressive squares with manicured gardens and statues of Peru’s illustrious heroes. Explore the cathedral, Plaza de Armas (main square), San Francisco convent and more. You’ll also visit the upscale coastal Miraflores district, strolling along the green clifftop Malécon park and an ancient olive grove in nearby San Isidro.

Next fly to Cusco, then head straight off to the Sacred Valley – we recommend this as the lower lying valley will help you acclimatize to the altitude before returning to Cusco. Here you’ll visit stunning archaeological sites such as the fortress of Ollantaytambo, Pisac and the unique spherical formations at Moray. Watch locals collecting salt from the naturally forming salt ponds of Maras, and learn about traditional textiles in Chinchero and Awanacancha.

The highlight of Peru for many people is their visit to the ancient citadel Machu Picchu. Enjoy a tour of the ruins with an expert guide, learning about the Incas who built it, and visiting the temples, terraces and all the best spots for photos.

Now acclimatized to the altitude, return to Cusco and enjoy a tour of this beautiful ancient city, where the legacy of the Incas and Spanish colonizers sit side by side. Choose from the many ancient sites to visit such as Qorikancha, the Cusco cathedral, Sacsayhuaman, Qenqo, Puka Pukara and Tambomachay.

Fly back to Lima for your international connecting flight to Quito. In the Ecuadorian capital city, enjoy a full day tour taking in the historic city center with beautifully preserved architecture. You’ll also visit the Mitad del Mundo, where the equator line is located, with a monument and line to take photos with.

Fly from Quito to the Galapagos islands to join your all-inclusive 5 day / 4 night Galapagos cruise. All the excursions will be arranged by the cruise provider and led by an expert naturalist guide. You’ll explore the islands on land and by sea, with shore excursions and hikes, coastal dinghy rides, snorkeling, kayaking and more. You’ll have close encounters with the incredible wildlife and scenery – look out for Galapagos penguins, giant tortoises, land and marine iguanas, inquisitive sea lions, blue-footed boobies and more.

And the end of the cruise, fly from the Galapagos back to mainland Ecuador, either Quito or Guayaquil for your onward travel connections.
