The dramatic plot structure of this Peru journey has you exploring the Sacred Valley, sampling the Inca Trail, and arriving on foot to the gate of climactic Machu Picchu. The denouement is an exploration of Cusco and a foodie experience in Lima.

But the most important part of any good story is the characters you meet. This service-minded trip is all about people. Collaborate with indigenous communities through the innovative non-profit, Andean Alliance. Visit an inspiring educational project that provides access to schooling for marginalized girls.
