Day 1: Awesome Cusco

 

You private driver and guide will pick you up in the morning or afternoon depending on your choice, and take you to visit the most impressive attractions of Cusco, such as the breathtaking site of Sacsayhuaman, an archeological complex which holds sacred and ceremonial value to this day. There, not only will you be able to appreciate the huge -up to 70 tons- stones that fit perfectly, but you will also be afforded a spectacular view of the whole city of Cusco. You will also visit the Plaza de Armas and the Cathedral that overlooks the Plaza.

 

Inside this unique building, you will be able to appreciate many examples of the works of the Cusco Art School and a quite unusual and interesting version of Christ´s Last Supper.

 

Another sacred site you will visit is the Qoricancha, the former Incan Temple of the Sun, which is still considered sacred ground.

 

Finally, you will also visit the San Pedro Market, where you will have a taste of what the everyday life is like in Cusco and where you will become acquainted with a wide variety of local produce and its nutritional value. Afterwards, we will take you to Ollantaytambo, where you will board the train -Expedition or Vistadome, the choice is yours- that will take you on a 1.5 hour journey to Aguas Calientes, the closest town to the ruins of Machu Picchu.

 

Upon arrival to Aguas Calientes, you will settle in at the hotel you have booked for the night . On this day you will coordinate the tour of the following day with your guide. 



Optional Lunch may be included, please enquire.

Overnight: Aguas Calientes ( 6692,913 ft )

Day 2: Discovery & exploration of Machu Picchu Citadel

The next morning, your guide will pick you up at your hotel and take you to the bus that will take you on a 20 minute drive from the town up to the entrance of the Citadel itself. You have finally reached your destination!

 

You will then have your private guided tour of Machu Picchu, during which you will learn about the temples and buildings, such as the Temple of the Condor or the Temple of the Sun. Afterwards, you will have time to explore Machu Picchu on your own, so you may choose to hike up to the Sun Gate, which affords a spectacular view of the Citadel, or visit the Incan Bridge, one of the ancient entrances to Machu Picchu. Additionally, if you choose, you may add the ticket to visit Wayna Picchu or Machu Picchu Montaña, for a longer but very rewarding hike, but please remember these tickets need to be reserved in advance!

 

Finally, you will take the bus back down to Aguas Calientes, where you will board an afternoon train back to Ollantaytambo train station, where your driver will be waiting to take you back to your hotel, after a very intense day full of unforgettable experiences.
