The following land adventures feature deluxe accommodations, all transportation, transfers, guided sightseeing and some meals. Prices are per person, based on double occupancy.

Amazon Explorer -- Travelers on this journey to Peru's Amazon basin may witness pygmy marmosets, howler monkeys, toucans and other wildlife that inhabit the region's lowland forests.

This six-night, post-cruise program departs from Lima and is priced from $6,259.

Machu Picchu Explorer -- Set in the Peruvian Andes is the Lost City of the Incas, Machu Picchu. In addition to exploring this monument of human achievement, participants will enjoy a roundtrip journey in Peru's Vistadome train.
