December 28, 2015 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel NewsDecember 28, 2015 - Pacific Holidays, a leading specialist in arranging unique tour and travel opportunities, is now offering vacation packages that highlight a series of World Heritage Sites. World Heritage Sites are landmarks around the globe that have received special recognition through the United Nations as having special cultural significance to the area. Although World Heritage Site tours are being featured in dozens of the packages from Pacific Holidays, the agency is highlighting several standouts that vacationers will not want to miss.
Machu Pichu and Galapagos Islands Cruise - For 14 days and 13 nights, travelers on this itinerary will get to tour the fabled and tropical Machu Pichu and Galapagos Islands. Machu Pichu in Peru stands over 2,000 meters above sea level and is made up of lush tropical forests. Home for centuries to Inca settlers that remain shrouded until discovered in 1911, there are close to 200 historical structures in the region that can now be explored by visitors.
The Galapagos Islands were one of the first regions to be added to the World Heritage Sites back in 1978. The islands are home to several active volcanoes and house a diversity of land and sea life that can't be found anywhere else in the world.
As part of the Pacific Holidays vacation package, guests will receive roundtrip airfare from Miami, overnight accommodations, and daily meal selections. Extensive sightseeing tours are also included that stop at the Ollantaytambo ruins, the Machu Picchu citadel, the Andahuaylillas and Racchi ruins, and a cruise around the Galapagos Islands.
Coastal Uruguay - The coastal cities of Uruguay are toured in this week-long unique excursion from Pacific Holidays. On the trip, stops are made at the cities of Colonia, Montevideo and Punta del Este. Two of the days are spent in Colonia, home to the World Heritage Site of Colonia del Sacramento. The Portuguese founded the city in the late 17th century and it was one of the first areas to break away from the "grid" pattern of architecture.
The Pacific Holidays tour includes roundtrip airfare, overnight hotel accommodations, daily breakfast, and extensive sightseeing coach tours of Colonia, Montevideo, and Punta del Este.
Chile's Lake District - Chile's lake district is a gorgeous area nestled between the Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. During the seven-night trip, vacationers explore the area's wine country, volcano ranges, and national parks. As part of the package, the seaport city of Valparaiso is visited-a World Heritage site that was first founded in the 16th century by the Spaniards. The city would go on to become one of the most important seaports in European trade.
