Experience the ancient citadel of Machu Picchu that remained hidden in the jungle until Yale’s Hiram Bingham rediscovered it in 1911.

You’ll have two days in the area to allow you to explore this UNESCO World Heritage Site as well as the option to hike to Huayna Picchu or walk to the Gate of the Sun.

Enjoy exclusive visits with your family to the Yale International Center for the Study of Machu Picchu and Inca Culture, the Koricancha Temple's "golden courtyard," which during Inca times glittered in gold.
