2D1N CUSCO EXPERIENCE
with options for 3D2N and 4D3N
This is the most rewarding visit to Machu Picchu!
All our trips begin with a Sacred Valley active tour on our way to Machu Picchu; the ideal way to acclimatize and prepare for this fabulous experience. We overnight at a hotel in Aguas Calientes to next morning catch an early bus to reach Machu Picchu in time to enjoy the most amazing sunrise and an in depth tour of the site.
DAY 1: SACRED VALLEY
At 7:30 a.m. in the morning, we will pick you by private vehicle from your hotel for a great Sacred Valley tour the day before you enter the Inca Trail, this is the natural way to get close to the trail head while acclimatizing and getting familiarized with Inca trails. We will drive over the “Ccorao” pass above Cusco to descend on a winding road to the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Here we will hike on Inca trails through the magnificent Inca citadel of PISAC considered as one of the outstanding Inca remains because of the quality of the stonework and breath-taking location on a mountain saddle overlooking the Sacred Valley. After a 1 1/2hour visit and hike, we will drive down the mountain for a short visit to the colonial town of the same name with a quick stop at their famous Indian handicraft market. Afterwards we will drive following the Urubamba River downstream to Urubamba city; here we will visit the local food market and have lunch at a local restaurant nearby. Afterwards we will visit Ollantaytambo, considered the most authentic living Inca town. This town has been continuously inhabited since Inca times until the present, conserving its original urban layout and stone walled homes. A guided walking tour through the extensive ruins and cobblestone paved narrow streets will make you feel like you are travelling back in time. You take the 4:30 pm train from Ollantaytambo to Aguas Calientes/Machu Picchu and stay at Hotel in Aguas Calientes for the night. L, Dinner on your own.
Day 2: Visit MACHU PICCHU
Early wake up to take the bus up to Machu Picchu in time to enjoy the sunrise over the Inca citadel (optional hike to Wayna Picchu at this point). Our Guide will provide an introduction to Machu Picchu and begin an in-depth tour of the this World Heritage site and later enjoy some time wandering and wondering in the midst of its eternal beauty before we exit. We’ll take the bus down to the town of Aguas Calientes and have time to eat lunch on your own at one of the local restaurants before we board the return train to Ollantaytambo and Cusco.
