Embark on an enriching journey to Machu Picchu with your children, an experience that promises to be the highlight of your South American adventure.

Nestled atop a rugged hill, shrouded in lush forest and overlooking the majestic Urubamba River, Machu Picchu remained concealed for centuries beneath the dense canopy of cloud forest vegetation. It wasn’t until the intrepid American explorer, Hiram Bingham, stumbled upon its ancient ruins in 1911, that this awe-inspiring citadel was brought back into the world’s consciousness.
