Genesis of the Andean Culture will introduce you to the unique, authentic cultures of the Andes. You will learn about their ancestry, including the great Indian empires of the Aymara and Quechua tribes, and their past and present relationship with Spanish descendants. This short and well packed, yet flexible trip enables you to sample the very best of Bolivian & Peruvian daily life and history combined with breathtaking landscapes in the Andes, and featuring privately guided tours.

Explore La Paz and its lively markets, and discover the highlights of South America's Central Andes: Tiwanaku archaeological site and Lake Titicaca including the Island of the Sun — mythical birthplace of the Inca Civilization. Then carry on across the Altiplano to Puno and Cuzco, the capital of the Inca Empire. Finally you will have plenty of time to explore Machu Picchu — arguably the highlight of any trip in South America.

Our Genesis of the Andean Culture travel package has an extraordinary scope, taking in one highlight after another. Unquestionably, one of them will be spending one night at Machu Picchu.

As you combine the best of Bolivia and Peru, you will experience South America first hand, including fascinating cultural wonders and a wealth of outstanding natural sceneries.

With many opportunities to customize your stay, Genesis of the Andean Culture is designed to give you an authentic look at Bolivia & Peru, its people and the daily life in the Andes.

• Tiwanaku - This site near La Paz flourished as the religious and administrative capital of a major Andean state/power for approximately five hundred years. The Tiwanaku civilization was the most important precursors to the Inca Empire. Its monumental architecture is characterized by large stones fitted, notched, and dressed with a precision unequaled even by the Inca. Tiwanaku painted pottery is one of the great achievements of pre-Columbian art.
