Once arrival our personal will escort you to your comfortable hotel in Cusco. Acclimation to the new altitude of Cusco 3400mtrs.

Rest of the day free.


You will begin your day by enjoying the best view of the city of Cusco from atop Cerro Pukamoqo (Red Peak), a natural scenic overlook from which the outstretched arms of Cristo Blanco, a massive white statue of Christ, embrace the city in a benevolent gesture. You will then visit the nearby Fortaleza de Sacsayhuamán (Fortress of Sacsayhuamán), a colossal structure of enormous stones, carved and fitted together with incredible precision. As you return to the lower part of the city, you will stop off at the Mercado de San Pedro (Market of St. Peter), which being the city’s main street market, will give you an opportunity to get to know the products of Cusco, overwhelming you with the sights, aromas, tastes, and colors of the region. Just a few blocks away, you will discover 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. You will complete the day with a stroll through the Cusco Plaza de Armas (Main Square), where you will visit the Cathedral and admire its exquisite vestibules and priceless paintings from the Cusco School of the 17th centuries.


After an early breakfast, it’ll be time for next day of adventures. With your Peru travel guide, you’ll embark on a journey into the famous Sacred Valley of the Incas, also known as the Urubamba Valley. As you wind through the Andean mountaintops, you’ll find echoes of a traditional lifestyle that has existed there for more than 500 years: traditional clothing, clay fire ovens, and many of the irrigation techniques developed more than half a millennium ago. The drive to the Sacred Valley isn’t very long, but it will give you a chance to see typical Andean villages and scenery. Remember your camera. Once you descend into the Sacred Valley, you’ll know why the Incas revered this land. Its lush fertile soil, the inspiration for the Incas’ advanced agricultural methods, is still ever-present. The tour will include a visit to the town of Pisac , famous for its local market. Here you can purchase any number of Andean garments and handicrafts to remember your Peru vacation. The town also offers interesting architectural elements, such as terraces, tunnels, and temples to explore. It’s obvious why Pisac is such a gem of the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Next, it’ll be time to visit the magnificent ruins of Ollantaytambo, which offers amazing lookouts over the valley. Built in the mid-15th century, the structure was originally a residence: the royal estate of Emperor Pachacuti. During the Spanish conquest of Peru however, Ollantaytambo transformed into a fortress, as Manco Inca Yupanqui and the Inca resistance made a final stand against the invading Spanish conquistadores. By late afternoon and after wandering the ruins of  Pisac  and Ollantaytambo for most of the day, it’ll be time to head back to Cusco.
