Your local guide will welcome you at the airport and will transfer you to your hotel. On route he/she will explain you the next few days' activities.

    Cusco is the favorite destination of many visitors to Peru. As you wander the streets and side alleys of the city you will witness the perfect tapering Inca stonework that provided the foundations for many of Cusco’s colonial and modern buildings. The city itself is the continent's oldest continuously inhabited city and was the home of the Inca Empire for two centuries before the Spanish built their first capital here.
    Today Cusco is a fascinating combination of both cultures. Take the time to acclimatize to the city's 3450-metre high (11,150 ft) altitude.

    In the afternoon, you’ll enjoy of a nice tour around the most characteristic places in the center of Cusco. On the way you will see the Stone of Twelve Angles at the Inca Roca Palace, on Hatun Rumilloc Street. You’ll visit the Qoricancha temple, considered the most sacred Inca building. According to archaeologists it housed over 1000 priests and attendants. It was built over an Inca palace dedicated to the worship of the Sun.

    Then, you’ll head to the heart of the city, “the Plaza de Armas”, surrounded by colonial arcades and four churches. Here you’ll appreciate the façade of the beautiful “Cathedral” of Cusco, built in the XVI.

Known as Wilcamayo to the Incas, the lush, fertile valley has long been the main source of food for the high Andes. Maize crops can be seen surrounding the river and covering the terraces carved high into the valley walls.

    The first stop will be at Huaypo lagoon. Here, you’ll start your bike adventure through the Sacred Valley. This is a must for all mountain biking lovers as this trip takes you from Cusco to the Sacred Valley in spectacular scenery, a combination of smooth dirt roads to rugged trails. One of the best mountain bike routes in the country. You’ll enjoy the magnificent views of the Vilcanota mountain range from the seat of your bicycle.

    Then, you’ll head to a community in the Valley to learn about local lifestyle and activities and if our visit coincides with market day you can spend time browsing the stalls in search of hand-painted beads or warm
    ponchos and maybe practicing some of the local language, Quechua. Typical lunch will be included in the community.

    Afterwards, you’ll drive along the Urubamba River towards the town of Ollantaytambo, a magnificent example of Incan urban planning. It's one of the few places where the Incas defeated the Spanish.

    Ollantaytambo's archaeological site is located to the east of the Plaza de Armas. The upper terraces of this site offer great photo opportunities of the squared grid town below.

    At the end of the day, you’ll be transferred to your hotel located in the middle of the Sacred Valley.

On the way you will see more scenic spots in the Sacred Valley. First, visit the ancient salt ponds near the village of Maras, where salty springs emerge from the hillside and the Incas built terraces to capture the flows and harvest salt.

    Continue the excursion to Moray, where huge circular agricultural terraces were built by the Incas on limestone sinks served to plant various crops. It is said to have a cosmological significance, however, the Incas used the terraces as an agricultural laboratory to determine the optimum conditions for each species
    in varying altitudes.

    Afterwards, enjoy lunch in a local restaurant in the small town of Yucay. Then, return to your hotel to relax at the hotel’s facilities.

    The train ride to Machu Picchu is one of the most beautiful journeys that visitors can experience in our country. After passing the Sacred Valley of the Incas the train starts to descend gradually along the edge of the Urubamba River, till finally reach the cloud forest. After approximately 1 hour 45 minutes you will have arrived in Aguas Calientes town, where you will be taken to the Machu Picchu ruins starting with a short bus ride up the steep, zigzagging road to the impressive Lost City of the Incas.

    This is one of those genuinely magical places, and your first glimpse of these ruins in the mist is something to remember. The site is perched high in the Andes, surrounded by verdant cloud forest, with the river Urubamba running through the gorge far below. Hidden away on a ridge, Machu Picchu is
    invisible from below, so it's no surprise it remained a secret for so many years (until 1911).

    Your ticket grants access to the site for 4 hours. Explore the upper terrace with your guide first, making sure to get that great portrait! You will then take a guided tour of the ruins, learning more about these 200 or so houses and temples. It's fascinating to be able to gaze down on the city from above and imagine how it would have looked during the height of the Inca empire. Catch the bus back into town and enjoy lunch at Ayaska Machu Picchu restaurant.

    In the afternoon, you’ll take the tourist train back to Ollantaytambo, followed by a private transfer to your hotel in Cusco.
