4 Days

Discover the mysteries of the ancient Inca in Peru while exploring the oldest inhabited city in the world, Cusco, and the Inca fortress that was once lost, Machu Picchu.

Later on, during your itinerary you will visit the Machu Picchu fortress via train. During the ride you will witness the impressive landscapes changing from the Sacred Valley to mountainous, forested slopes, until you finally arrive at Aguas Calientes. Here you will step off and begin venturing into the ancient citadel to learn about its incredible history and the mysterious that come with it.

4 Days Lima & Cusco

ITINERARY

Upon your arrival to Lima you will be transferred to your selected hotel to spend the night.
Depending on your departure time, you will be transferred to the airport for your flight to the city of Cusco. When arriving, you will have another transfer waiting to take you to your selected hotel. After you have settled in, you will have an afternoon city tour that will include the very best of Cusco. You’ll visit the Koricancha Temple (Temple of the Sun) and the Cathedral, with its magnificent chapels and baroque altars and paintings from the Cusquena School. The tour also includes the surrounding ruins of the fortress of Sacsayhuaman, the Inca bath of Tambomachay, Puca Pucara and the Amphitheater of Kenko (Private services). After the tour you will return to your hotel where you can stay and relax, or continue to explore Cusco on your own.
You’ll leave Cusco for the Poroy train station to reach Aguas Calientes, and the amazing citadel of Machu Picchu. Arriving at Aguas Calientes, you visit the citadel by bus to the ruins for a guided tour. In 2007, Machu Picchu was selected as one of the 7 New Wonders of the World. In 1981, it was declared a Peruvian Historical Sanctuary, in 1983 a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its beauty, history, conservation and mysterious architecture make these Incan ruins the most important of the ancient empire. Machu Picchu is also thought to be a place for astronomical observation. You’ll be bewildered as to how the Inca were capable of such feats while exploring the ruins of the temples, living quarters and many terraces. Afterwards, you’ll return to Aguas calientes and depart by train back to the Poroy train station. You’ll then be transferred back to Cusco to your hotel.

After breakfast you will be transferred to the Cusco airport for your flight back to Lima. Your connection afterwards will be on your own according to your international flight.
