Embark on a journey through the heart of the Inca Empire. Be greeted by picturesque Andean landscapes, and exhilarate your senses with the tastes and smells of regional cuisine.

Day 1: Arrival to Cusco & City Tour

 

The tour begins the moment you step off the plane in Cusco. Our airport shuttle will pick you up from the airport and take you to your Cusco hotel to drop off your luggage (CHECK-IN 12:00 pm).

Day 1 of the tour begins at 1:00 pm in Cusco, also known as the Imperial City. The tour begins visiting the Koricancha Temple, a preserved Inca palace and worship center in Cusco’s Historic Center.

From there, the tour visits Plaza de Armas (the main square) and the Cathedral Basilica (a historic catholic temple) before heading on to the Sacsayhuamán Fortress (15th century Inca ruins and Q'enqo archeological site).

After the tour, we return to Cusco. Our service will end in the surroundings of the Plaza de Armas.

 

Day 2: Sacred Valley

 

We will pick you up from your hotel in Cusco. From here, we will take a bus to all of our destinations for the day.

On our way to Pisaq, about 30 minutes from Cusco, we will make our first stop at the market of Ccorao. Here, locals display their crafts to appreciate their art and buy some beautiful handmade souvenirs for you and your loved ones. You will also have the opportunity during this stop to take photographs of the beautiful landscape of mountains, valleys, and even native animals like llamas!

Afterward, we will continue heading to "the Sacred Valley viewpoint". This lookout of the valley will give you a perfect opportunity to photograph the Andes mountain range and the Sacred Valley all together. We will then arrive at Pisaq to visit its main market and archaeological site. Once finished, we will go to Urubamba and enjoy a delicious buffet lunch of traditional Peruvian dishes.

In the afternoon, we will visit Ollantaytambo's town to visit its unique and extensive archaeological site with its royal baths, high terraces, temples, etc.

Surrounded by towering mountain peaks and colorful valleys (plus a view of a faraway glacier) this town is the most well-preserved layout of a typical, Incan-built city with its narrow, cobbled streets and stone walls. Its conservation allows for the enduring legacy of the Incan people to live on for us today!

On our way back to Cusco, we will make a final stop at the town of Chinchero. Here, we will have the opportunity to visit a beautiful colonial temple known for its mural painting above the entranceway (this temple was built on top of Inca foundations). We will also have the opportunity to see the Incan walls in the town's plaza.
