JENKINTOWN, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Known as the world’s most remote inhabited island, Easter Island is endowed with magnificent archeological sites and treasures. Similarly, Machu Picchu is isolated in its high-altitude ancient Inca setting, making this “lost city” one of the world’s most breathtaking and culturally dynamic sites. Now, unlock the mystery of these world-class historical sites with Friendly Planet Travel’s surprisingly affordable price of $3,599—airfare included—allowing savvy travelers who love great deals as much as they love great destinations to put Easter Island and Machu Picchu at the top of their must-do vacation list.
Friendly Planet Travel’s luxurious Exotic Easter Island and Machu Picchu package takes travelers on a spectacular South American journey to discover the massive and mysterious Moai stone statues that stand guard over the Polynesian island, while also visiting Lima, Peru’s capital city, Cusco, the archeological heart of South America, and Machu Picchu, the mysterious lost city of the Incas.
“Our new program to Easter Island and Machu Picchu combines two exotic and fascinating destinations; luxury accommodations; plenty of adventure, history, art, and archaeology-focused sightseeing; and many meals, all elegantly wrapped in one incredibly affordable package,” says Peggy Goldman, President of Friendly Planet Travel. “Easter Island is normally out of reach for most travelers due to its extreme geographic isolation, limited transportation options to the island and, as a result, high cost. But thanks to our very aggressive pricing, our tour makes the island accessible and affordable by allowing travelers to take advantage of LAN Airlines new direct flight from Lima, which then serves as the gateway to the magnificent lost Inca city of Machu Picchu. Despite the affordable price, this is a deluxe program based on carefully selected hotels and small groups of eight to 16 travelers for a more intimate traveling experience. The Friendly Planet tour is priced at nearly half what similar programs to the region cost, and departures from four convenient LAN Airlines gateway cities –MIA, JFK, LAX and SFO, are the same price. We’re really excited about this extraordinary, luxury-for-less opportunity, and we believe our travelers will be too.”
Friendly Planet Travel’s Exotic Easter Island and Machu Picchu tour includes round-trip airfare from four gateways via LAN Airlines (Miami, New York, Los Angeles, or San Francisco); fuel surcharges, airline taxes, and fees; all intra-South America flights; land transportation and transfers; Vistadome train to and from Machu Picchu; and nine nights in deluxe hotels. The tour also includes daily breakfast, two lunches, and three dinners; a comprehensive touring program, including entrance fees; and professional, English-speaking tour guides.
The tour is available for $3,599 on the departure dates of Nov. 10, Nov. 24 and Dec. 1, if booked by Oct. 3. For $100 more, travelers can depart on Jan. 5, Jan. 19, Feb. 16, Feb. 23, Mar. 2, Mar. 9, and Mar. 16, if booked by Oct. 3.
