Day 1: Lima
As you will be tired on arrival in Peru, we will arrange for you to stay right by Lima Airport.
Day 2: Lima/ Cusco
Fly over the Andes to the UNESCO Heritage city of Cuzco. After a chance to freshen up we will take you on a Cusco City Tour to appreciate the mix of Incan and Colonial styles including visits to the huge Inca fortress of Sacsayhuaman. Stay in Cusco or take the short trip to the Sacred Valley of the Incas for a comfortable night’s sleep.
Day 3: Sacred Valley Tour
Start your exploration of the Sacred Valley of the Incas — the vast valley below Machu Picchu and an area where a traditional lifestyle continues to this day — by visiting the charming town of Chinchero. See traditionally dressed locals in the handicrafts market at Pisaq and practice your bartering skills. After lunch alongside the Urubamba River, your tour ends in Ollantaytambo, a pretty village laid out in the traditional Incan format and dominated by the Inca terracing fortress above. Stay here or return to Cuzco.
Day 4: Machu Picchu Tour
Catch the early train to Machu Picchu passing through lovely mountain scenery. Arrive with plenty of time to begin exploring the breathtaking Inca city. Your guide will take you around the site, then you will have time to explore Machu Picchu on your own – walking to the Inca Bridge, the Sun Gate, more photos or just quiet contemplation. Then in the afternoon you will head back down to your evening train and transfer to Cusco and your hotel.
Day 5: Machu Picchu Second Day
A second day´s visit to Machu Picchu will allow you to climb one of the viewpoints and wonder at the surrounding mountains, climb Huayna Picchu, see the Inca bridge, Sun Gate or maybe just walk around and take in the nearby site at your own speed. Afternoon train back to Cusco.
Day 6: FreeMorning Cusco
Spend a free morning in Cusco to give you the chance to visit some of the museums, do some souvenir shopping, or just people-watch in the main square. In the afternoon we take you to the airport for your flight to Lima and home.
