and the Amazon basin. Here you will board the tourist bus and proceed up an incredible winding road that leads
to the fabled site of Machu Picchu. On your arrival your guide will explain the history and the myths that
surround this archaeological wonder. Several ideas or possibilities have been noted of this massive archaeological
complex of acropolis proportion. Whether this site was pre Incan, a previous leaders sanctuary for his retirement,
or maybe a location for the virgins to be separated from the kingdom and used as wives for the Inca rulers or even
sacrificial for the gods. It seems that the world will never know. After your tour ( 2 hours ) time will permit to
