The excitement to see Machu Picchu is vibrant and catching. Travelers dream about it, read travel guides, shop for special gear, buy new hiking boots, travel across the world to get to Lima, continue on to Cusco, travel by train through snowcapped roaring Andean mountains and lush valleys and finally drive a zig-zag dirt road up the mountain to get to Machu Picchu… to see it for just a few hours?
Stay extra nights.
We have been pioneering new ways re-discover the Inca culture since 1976. We can proudly say that we were one of the first tour operators to include overnight in the Sacred Valley back in 1978 when the only property was the Alhambra II (now Sonesta Posada del Inca Yucay) and later on to include visits to authentic Quechua villages.
We are now introducing programs with two-night stay that allows travelers to tour Machu Picchu when the crowds have left. Extra nights will give travelers the opportunity to enjoy the many activities available in Machu Picchu.
There is plenty to do in Machu Picchu, this is you Main Destination, extra nights will give you time to return to the citadel to study these magnificent ruins at your leisure, to stroll to the Inca Bridge a secret entrance used by the Inca's army, to walk toward the Inca Trail to find the historic Intipunku or Sun Gate, to wander into the Mandor valley, to explore the open air market of Machu Picchu village, to visit Manuel Chavez Museum, to hike the round shape mountain of Putukusi or to hike the steep stone-paved trail of Huayna Picchu, the pyramid-shape mountain above Machu Picchu to for an impressive and breathtaking “condor view” of the site.
