New for 2015 – Earth Journeys, created by Tauck and BBC Earth – join us on an active adventure that combines the timeless natural world of the Galápagos Islands with exploration of the ancient empire of the Incas. One of our most popular trips immerses you in the Earth Journeys experience, featuring BBC Earth on-tour films and a specialist wildlife filming kit. Unravel the mysteries of the centuries on a visit to Machu Picchu, the spectacular "Lost City of the Incas" – one of the must-see destinations on any world-traveler's list. Enjoy a six-night cruise aboard one of the finest expeditionary-style yachts in the Galápagos, the Isabela II – where you'll be accompanied by naturalists who inform and inspire with insights into the amazing wildlife including the giant Galápagos tortoises, blue-footed boobies, sea lions, marine iguanas, and penguins. Your wildlife viewing experience is enhanced by camera technology such as thermal imaging cameras, and parabolic or directional microphones that capture the voices of nature and bring them to your ears. Peru tours include meeting the famous Paso horses on a Peruvian ranch... a weaving demonstration at a local farm... and a scenic rail journey to the gateway to Machu Picchu for an overnight stay next to the ancient Incan site.
