At VBT, each of our 49 biking and walking vacations are deliberately selected to give you ample opportunity to explore both the landscape and the culture of your desired destination. But we recognize that it is, after all, your vacation, and we take comfort on the road very seriously. After an invigorating day of discovery, we want you to relax, unwind, and enjoy the time spent at your on-tour accommodations. Traveler’s on our popular Peru: Machu Picchu & the Sacred Valley walking tour will stay in hotels ranging from 4-star eco-lodges near the lost Incan City to a centrally-located 5-star hotel in the heart of Lima.
