A safari, maybe, with a walker. But Machu Pichu - I don't think so. It's lots of climbing, lots of steps with no railing and the high altitude makes for difficult breathing. We were there with friends and it was the high light of our trip. However, the wife of the couple we were traveling with almost passed out soon into the climb and had to give it up. There's no trolley or anything to take you around. It's walk, walk, walk.

Here's a good link with travel destinations for the disabled.

I agree that Machu Picchu would be very difficult with a walker, not to mention the high altitude. Hopefully the link will give you some ideas.
