Machu Picchu plus climb up either to Machupicchu or Waynapicchu mountain which are worth it!
Machu Picchu, "lost" city of the Incas, perch precariously on the spine of an impossibly beautiful green mountain 120 km from the ancient imperial capital of Cuzco, Peru. Miraculously missed by Spanish invaders for three hundred years, it wasn't until American historian Hiram Bingham was led to the site in 1911 that the outside world learned of its existence. The finish line of the modern Inca Trail, your first glimpse of the site upon cresting the final pass at sunrise is a spiritual experience. Surrounded by steep valley on all sides, rising mist floating past stone terraces and grazing llama, Machu Picchu is one place that always lives up to its mythical status.

We are from New Zealand and have nearly zero Spanish, but we thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Edwin, who was a ready source of high quality knowledge in a very wide range of areas of our interest. We would thoroughly recommend him to other English Speaking travellers in particular, but I'm sure his caring approach would work for all.
