Itinerary: Cusco, Sacred Valley & Machu Picchu Tour
Day 1: Arrival at CuscoArrive at Cusco and transfer to your hotel. You have the morning free to acclimatize to the altitude (3400 m). In the afternoon, we take you on a city tour (5 hours) which includes the most important sites of Cusco history. Such as the famous fortress of Sacsayhuaman, an amazing example of Incan precision construction, and the Temple of the Sun (Sunturwasi). This tour also includes visits to places located around the city, such as Tambomachay (bath of the Inca and sacred spring for the worship of water), Kenco (astronomical observatory) and Pucapucará (military strength monitoring). Overnight at the hotel (including breakfast).
Day 2: Sacred Valley of the IncasThis tour begins at 8:00 am. We visit Pisac and enjoy its craft market where the farmers and artists congregate to offer their better products. Then we go to Calca village, Urubamba where we have lunch in a rustic restaurant. The tour will continue on to Ollantaytambo, which is described as a living Inca town. It is an impressive fortress town that was built up during the reign of the Inka Pachacutec, and is an excellent example of the military architecture of those times. Here you see the fortress and carved stone terraces built into the side of the hill. A fascinating piece of precision Incan construction. On the return trip to Cuzco, we visit Chinchero, where the residents speak Quechuan and still preserve Incan customs. They make colourful handicraft and wear traditional dress.
