Day 1: Arrival to Cusco

Upon arrival to Cusco's Airport, you will be welcomed by our local staff and transferred to your comfortable hotel in Cusco’s historical city centre. Then, at the coordinated time, we’ll take a few minutes to sit down with our local guide and go through our entire program together. The rest of today is all about relaxing and beginning our acclimatization to this high altitude destination (3,400 masl).


Day 2: Exploring Cusco

Today, after a good breakfast, we have the entire day to explore Cusco. One of the main advantages of this beautiful city is that everything is really close to its colonial city centre so you can easily explore its main sites at your own pace. We recommend spending today simply strolling around the squares, churches and picturesque cafés you’ll find in almost every corner.
Because all the cities’ landmarks are close it’s not really necessary to take a private guided tour (but we’ll be happy to provide it upon request). We’ll give you a map and useful information so you can make the most of your first day in Cusco.

Recommendations: Visit the Cusco Cathedral one of the most fascinating colonial and religious buildings in Peru, explore the beautiful Koricancha and don't miss the chance to hike up to Saqsayhuaman Fortress overlooking Cusco.


Day 3: The Sacred Valley of the Incas

This morning we'll set off on a tour to visit the Sacred Valley's most impressive sites. First, we'll reach Moray, one of the most unusual Inca sites consisting of circular terraces built upon a natural depression which seem to have been an agricultural experimental station used to adapt crops to different temperatures. Then we continue to Maras, an impressive salt-extraction complex consisting of thousands of small terraces. During the dry season they fill the pans every 3 days with salty water that comes from a natural spring, once the water is evaporated, they collect the salt they have been selling at the markets of the region since before the Inca times. For lunch, we'll enjoy a local & international near the town of Urubamba and after we'll continue to Ollantaytambo, an old Inca fortified village where we may observe some of the best examples of Inca architecture in the region.
From Ollantaytambo Station we'll board the train to the town of Aguas Calientes (Machu Picchu). The train journey is a spectacle in itself as we'll be able to appreciate the changing landscape from green fields and eucalyptus forests to lush jungle always travelling besides the meandering Urubamba River. Upon arrival, reception and then we'll be transferred to our hotel.


Day 4: Machu Picchu; Discovering the Lost City of the Incas

Today is the big day! Early in the morning, we'll take a 20-minutes bus up the steep zigzagging road to Machu Picchu Citadel, located on an impressive mountain setting.
We'll first have a 3 hours guided excursion so we can have a better understanding of Machu Picchu and the Incas culture. Our guide will be happy to answer all the questions you may have. Afterwards, you'll have free time to continue exploring every corner of the "Lost City of the Incas" at your own pace.
After visiting Machu Picchu, you’ll return to Aguas Calientes where you can have lunch in a good restaurant (not included) before boarding your return train back to Cusco, from where a private transport will be waiting to take you to your hotel.

Important notes:
(1) If time allows, we recommend hiking up to Inti Punku for great views of Machu Picchu or the Inca Bridge (Free hikes). Additionally we can include the Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu Mountain tickets for an extra cost. (If interested you should inform us as the time of booking so we can purchase the tickets in advance and assure availability)
(2) Be sure to be at the train station 30minutes before your train departure.
(3) Please don’t forget to bring your passport with you since it will be required when entering Machu Picchu.
