Itinerary

DAY 1: CUSCO – CHINCHERO – URQUILLOS

Then we will visit the archaeological zone, the Inca terraces an, we will be able to observe the textiles. At the end of this visit, we will begin our hike of approximately 3 – 4 hours in an Andean landscape; this tour runs along a stretch of 8 km along the Inca Trail, which connects the town of Chincheros with the community of Urquillos. We will hike through the gorge, and then we will look out over the Sacred Valley from a viewpoint or “ushnu” where we will be able to appreciate the sacred mountains of Pitusiray and Sahuasiray. Then we will enjoy a typical lunch in the Sacred Valley. After lunch, we will go to Ollantaytambo train station and take the train that will take us to Machu Picchu town, where we will spend the night in a previously selected hotel. The next day we will visit the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu very early in the morning.

DAY 2: AGUAS CALIENTES – MACHU PICCHU – CUSCO

Early in the morning, we will hike or take the first bus to Machu Picchu to enjoy the sunrise in this magical place before the arrival of other tourists from the city of Cusco. We will enjoy the tranquility of the lost city of the Incas in a guided tour (Approx. 2 ½ hours), then we will have some free time to walk around the Citadel or climb the mountain of Huayna Picchu(you have to book this ticket in advance). From here, we will have spectacular views of the entire citadel of Machu Picchu, as well as the valleys and mountains that surround it. In addition, we will visit the Temple of the Moon and the fabulous Inca Bridge.

Excellent - keep it going The more that is said about this team is definitely less. Jhon and I had been in touch for the last six months to draw this trip and since then to now when it is in conceptualisation it has been top notch professional with a touch of personal with them checking on my well-being etc. Abel came in once I arrived at Lima and since then has been my support. Guys this is a tour operator must to be considered. Infact I have met so many in Cusco who asked me of my trip details and I have no hesitations in recommending them. Bravo

Ótimo passeio! Fizemos o passeio para Machu Picchu e tudo foi incrível, nós buscaram no horário combinado no hotel, o carro e motorista eram ótimos. Eles cuidaram de reservar as passagens de trem e ônibus e os ingressos para vista à Machu Picchu e tudo saiu perfeito. O guia da vista também foi excelente, muito atencioso e solicitou, além de ótimo fotografo. Tudo foi impecável!

Merveilleux, foncez ! Que dire à part un grand merci. Nous avons contacté l’agence la veille, ils nous ont répondu directement en nous proposant des expéditions sur mesure selon nos envies et nos disponibilités (2 jours d’expéditions : 1. Vallées sacrés des incas et 2. Machu Picchu). Abel s’est rendu disponible pour nous expliquer tous les détails avant le départ et même pendant les expéditions. Nous avons passé deux jours incroyable, tout était planifié, nous n’avions plus qu’à visiter et s’émerveiller. Le tout pour un prix raisonnable ! Nous recommandons ! (Francais 22 & 26 ans)
