Itinerary

DAY 1

Cusco Arrival And City Tour

Welcome to Peru!  You will be met at the airport by a representative and taken to your hotel.  Once you are settled in, a GOTOPERU tour guide will pick you up to begin your Peruvian journey.
Trip highlights include:
•    A guided tour of Cusco.
•    Visit to Q’enko, a large amphitheater that hosted ceremonial sacrifices.
•    Tour of Cusco Cathedral (Iglesia de Santa Domingo).
•    A walk through great Incan monuments including Tambomachay and Sacsayhuaman.
•    A brief jaunt to Incan tambo, the traveler’s rest stop of Puka Pukara

DAY 2

Sacred Valley Experience

Get ready to witness the majestic Sacred Valley!  After breakfast in your hotel, a GOTOPERU representative will greet you and pick you up for a scenic bus ride through the Andean landscape to the Sacred Valley (El Valle Sagrado).
Trip highlights include:
•    Tour through Pisac, a small town rich with Incan architecture and culture.  Be sure to stop by the artisan market to view and purchase unique souvenirs.
•    Visit to Ollantaytambo, a town and Incan archaeological site that once was the estate of Emperor Pachacutec.  During the Spanish Conquest, it served as a fortress for Manco Inca Yupanqui.
OPTIONS
A: Train and Overnight to Machu Picchu ( Included in the Price )  After your tour to Ollantaytambo fortress you will have a couple of hours extra to enjoy this small inca town before taking a 1.5hrs train to MachuPicchu Town where a representative will welcome you and transfer you to your confirmed hotel.

B: Overnight at Sacred Valley :  you will be transfer to your comfortable hotel surrounded by spectacular landscapes in the Sacred Valley.

C: Return to Cusco : After Ollantaytambo you will enjoy a tour through Chinchero, an Andean village with Incan ruins and a colonial church that produces extraordinary textiles, woven with ancestral tools. After a visit to the Textile Market you will be transfer to your hotel in Cusco later in the afternoon.

DAY 3

Inca Trail (day 1)

The first day of this trip starts early in the morning, directly after a GOTOPERU rep picks you up from your Cusco hotel. You will be taken to the Ollantaytambo station and subsequently take the train to KM 104, where the real journey begins.

The first thing you’ll notice upon arriving at your destination is an old-fashioned suspension bride. This is the start of the trail. We will begin trekking over the Urubamba River en route to some very old, small and intriguing Inca ruins on the Chachabama historic site. Make sure you get plenty of pictures and plenty of water, because then begins a four-hour hike to the Wiñaywayna enclosure, which is well over a mile above sea level (8,858 feet to be exact). The air up here is crisp and clean, however light, but the journey upward is actually rather gentle. 

This location is an important spiritual site of the Incan people. With large stone structures carved into the mountain, Wiñaywayna looks like an outdoor stadium for giants and is one of the most well preserved (naturally so) Incan sites in the region. 

Make sure to keep your head on a swivel as you cross this monument and onto the main Inca Trail. The river valleys and peaks of the lush, green expanse will leave you speechless for the entire journey. The goal is to cut through the ridge above Machu Picchu and to descend on this historic location.

After a short hike, you will reach Intipunku (modern day Puerta del Sol), where you will head down the 40-minute trail to the town of Aguas Calientes. Here, you will get a great meal and have access to the hotel. Sleep tight, because day two is right around the corner.

 

DAY 4

Inca Trail (day 2)

You won’t have to walk nearly as much on day two; this is all about soaking up the historic site of Machu Picchu. You will receive a guided tour of what experts refer to as the world’s most ancient—and perhaps most sophisticated—city. Machu Picchu is an entire city, built by the Inca Pachacuteq, and it features many houses, storage areas, temples, a large central gathering area, and even roadways and hundreds of steps – all carved out of stone by the ancient Incans. 

After getting a personal tour of the city from an expert historian tour guide, you will get to enjoy the rest of your day before returning back to your Cusco hotel.

DAY 5

Checkout Time

When your vacation is all said and done, regardless of the package you have chosen, you will still be seen off like royalty. After you eat a hearty regional breakfast, we will deliver you in style to the airport, where your flight awaits.

We’ll offer assistance with whatever you need: Check-ins, tickets, luggage, etc. 

Just remember to come back and vacation with us again. You can never see too much of Perú.
