Full Itinerary

DAY 1 - Travel to Cusco

Today we depart Ecuador and board our flights to Cusco in Peru, via Lima

You'lll be met on arrival at the airport in Cusco and transferred to the hotel where the evening is at leisure.

Included meals: Breakfast 
Accommodation: Costa del Sol Ramada, Cusco 

DAY 2 - Cusco Sightseeing & Dinner Show

We start the day with a half day city tour, taking in the best view of the city from atop Cerro Pukamoqo (Red Peak).

We will visit the nearby Fortress of Sacsayhuamán, a colossal structure of enormous stones carved and fitted together in antiquity with incredible precision.

There will also be a stop off at the Mercado de San Pedro, the city’s main street market which will give you an opportunity to get to know the products of Cusco. The sights, aromas, tastes, and colours of this region can be overwhelming - you may just want to sit and watch the world go by, enjoying a hot drink and soaking up the atmosphere.

Our tour will also take in one of the most impressive buildings of Incan Cusco: the Korikancha (the Golden Temple) - a temple dedicated to the worship of the Sun God, whose interior walls were said to have been covered in gold. The tour ends with a stroll through the Cusco Plaza de Armas (Main Square), where you can visit the Cathedral and admire its exquisite vestibules and priceless paintings from the Cusco School of the 17th and 18th centuries.

Tonight we'll enjoy the best combination of Peruvian Novo-andenean dinner and folkloric show.

Included meals: Breakfast & Dinner 
Accommodation: Costa del Sol Ramada, Cusco 

DAY 3 - Cusco to The Sacred Valley & Macchu Pichu

This morning, we continue towards the Sacred Valley.

Our first stop will be at Pisac, a beautiful place where Incan and Colonial influences have reached a perfect balance and created a unique way of life for the local inhabitants. Explore this quaint town, famous for its artisan markets where you can find extraordinarily fine jewellery and ceramic and textile craftwork.

Afterwards, we visit one of the last remaining Incan towns, Ollantaytambo, once fiercely guarded by a massive fortress. Discover the large archeological complex of what used to serve as a wayside inn for royal delegations on long journeys. Surviving structures here include multiple walls and towers that were used to protect the citadel from possible invasions.

This afternoon we will transfer to Ollantaytambo train station to take the vistadome train up high to the town of Aguas Calientes, the gateway to Macchu Pichu

Included meals: Breakfast Lunch & Dinner 
Accommodation: Machu Picchu Hotel Sumaq Luxury Edition, Aguas Calientes 

DAY 4 - Machu Picchu & Return to Cusco

Today is probably the highlight for most visitors to Peru as we visit the Historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu

This morning, we board a bus to the entrance gate of the citadel of Machu Picchu, rediscovered by Hiram Bingham more than a century ago. Machu Picchu is considered one of the Seven Wonders of the World, with its architectural beauty, spectacular natural landscapes and the energy held in its enigmatic structures - it will take your breath away. Follow in the footsteps of the ancient Incans as you explore the magical citadel with a local guide.

After the tour, we'll stop at a local restaurant for lunch before we re-board the Vistadome train at Aguas Calientes Station for the journey back down through the stunning scenery of the Sacred Valley

We transfer back to our hotel from the station and enjoy a final dinner at the hotel together to round off our South American adventure.
