Venue Information

Peru is truly one of the treasures of South America. Travel through this intriguing land visiting some of the world’s most legendary sites, including Machu Picchu, the “Lost City of the Incas”. Few places can actually be called a “lost city”. Yet, Machu Picchu remained undiscovered by the Spanish Conquistadors and unknown to the outside world until 1911. Today, travellers come from around the globe to experience the most spectacular sight on the South American continent. Built at the height of the Inca Empire, this classic archeological treasure continues to intrigue researchers. Venture through the mountains and semi-tropical jungle during a spectacular train ride. After a day exploring, overnight at a luxury hotel for a chance to spend a second day at this ultimate bucket-list locale. Perhaps you will see something no one else has. Can you unlock Machu Picchu’s mysteries?
