“Lost” Machu Picchu

Exploring mystical Machu Picchu in Peru’s Sacred Valley

The abandoned Incan "city" of Machu Picchu in Peru's Andes Mountains is a mystery. No one knows for sure why it was built, some 500 years ago – or why it was deserted. In fact, this ancient citadel was hidden from the western world until Hiram Bingham, an archaeologist from Yale University who was searching for other ruins from the empire of the Incas, stumbled upon it by accident in 1911, and dubbed it the “Lost City of the Incas.” Maybe you can figure it out as you explore this amazing maze of a place, with what experts guess was a palace, dungeons, and over 100 staircases.

Belmond Sanctuary Lodge

At the gateway to the Inca Empire

The only hotel located at the entrance to Machu Picchu, Belmond Sanctuary Lodge lets you beat the daily crowds that flock to Peru's centuries-old Inca citadel. Sitting in the shadows of the Lost City, this stylish retreat is an oasis of calm before or after a day exploring Machu Picchu. Unwind with a yoga session, take part in a traditional shaman ceremony in the garden, or sip muña tea in Tampu Bar. Tranquility, wonder and beauty are at the heart of the lodge's unique experience.

This was our first Tauck trip, and we were not disappointed. We went to Machu Picchu and the Galapagos. While it was a whirlwind trip, there was so much to see and do.

This was our first Tauck trip, and we were not disappointed. We went to Machu Picchu and the Galapagos. While it was a whirlwind trip - we were up at the crack of dawn - there was so much to see and do. Our tour Director was wonderful and extremely valuable - especially in the face of last minute airplane changes.

Most Memorable Moment:

There were several memorable moments - can't pick one. Of course exploring Machu Picchu was one highlight. Also, the many visits to the various Galapagos islands and the remarkable wildlife was breathtaking. It was particularly amazing to see that the animals had no fear of the humans - that we could approach without scaring them away.


lets start with the App. it provided great information prior to our trip so we could plan our free time. the hotel and restaurant guide need to be updated. Gaston was fabulous and the local guides top notch. I am always amazed at the quality of guides. the ship was great,the excursions left many memorible moments. Be ready for rigoruos walks.

Most Memorable Moment:

Staying at Machu Picchu lodge and hiking to the Gate of the Sun at 6 am the morning before we left. This was free time for us and not an easy trek. The guides were very proud of their heritage and conveyed the culture to us very well. Swimming with the sea lions on a deep water snorkel trip. Very well planned itinerary for both areas visited.
