Day 1
Sacred Valley

Met on arrival at Cusco Airport and transfer by road to the Sacred Valley Incas. This valley was of symbolic importance to the Incas and is littered with holy sites. It also contains some of the more fertile and flattest land for the production of the staple Andean cereal, maize. The rest of the day is at leisure to relax and acclimatise to the altitude.

Staying at Sol y Luna Hotel. Includes No Meals.

Day 2
Sacred Valley

Today enjoy a full day guided tour of the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Visit the Inca ruins of Pisac perched above the town of the same name. These ruins are some of the largest and finest in the Sacred Valley. Then visit the town of the same name and visit the town’s colourful market.

After lunch at a local restaurant visit the town of Ollantaytambo. This town is one of the few places that still has the original Inca layout, with the town laid out in a trapezoidal shape with the buildings arranged in blocks. The ruins at Ollantaytambo are very impressive. It was to here that Manco Inca retreated in the great revolt against the Spanish.

Staying at Sol y Luna Hotel. Includes Breakfast and Lunch.

Day 3
Cusco

Transfer to Ollanta train station for the train service to Machu Picchu town. Board the bus to Machu Picchu and begin exploring the Inca Citadel with a guide.

The famous lost city of the Incas is one of the most evocative places in Peru. It is perched on a mountain ridge 600 metres above the Urubamba River which winds spectacularly through the valley below. The mountainside is clad in thick cloud forest, often covered in mists which are quickly burnt off by the powerful equatorial sun. Constructed from precisely sculpted granite blocks carefully joined with the projecting exposed stone of the surrounding mountain, Machu Picchu may well be the finest architectural achievement of the new world. Your guide will tell you the story of the rise and fall of the ancient civilisations of the Andes, the tragic end of the Incas, and the unresolved mystery that this ‘lost city’ remains. Return to Cusco in the late afternoon.

Staying at Palacio Nazarenas. Includes Breakfast and Lunch.

Day 4
Cusco

Spend the morning in guided exploration of Cusco and the surrounding Inca sites. Sites of interest in the city to be explored include the Cathedral, considered to be the second largest in South America after Sao Paulo, and Qoricancha, the Temple of the Sun with a 17th Century church built on top. The Inca sites above Cusco include the large Inca fortress of Sacsayhuaman, and the Inca baths of Tambo Machay. The afternoon is at leisure to explore on own.
