Tour of Lima is enhanced with a visit Larco Museum and to “Casa de Aliaga” the oldest mansion of the America and jewel of Lima.
Upon arrival in Cusco travelers are transferred to the Sacred Valley of the Incas for two meaningful day excursions with lunch at extraordinary locations and before going to Machu Picchu.
The stunning beauty of the Sacred Valley (between Cusco and Machu Picchu) has inspired us to design since 1978 many tour packages with overnight stay in the Sacred Valley so travelers can enjoy an enhanced experience in this spectacular land.
The Sacred Valley is also considered the perfect location in order to acclimate to the elevation of the Andes and to prevent altitude sickness.
On your way to the Sacred Valley, visit Awana Kancha, the living museum of the Andes.
Lunch at Wayra with a unique show of the “Peruvian Paso Horse” at the award winning Sol y Luna, ranked by TripAdvisor as one the best 25 hotels of the world.
Overnight in Machu Picchu, which is only a short train ride from the Sacred Valley.
The overnight in Machu Picchu allows travelers to hike the steep stone-paved trail of Huayna Picchu, the pyramid-shape mountain above Machu Picchu for a breathtaking view of the site, 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 Sun Gate or just revisit the citadel to further enjoy one of the most incredible sights on earth. The rating or level for the hike to Huayna Picchu is “moderate”.
A second night to Machu Picchu is available to hike the round shape mountain of Putukusi, wander into the Mandor valley, visit Manuel Chavez Museum, meander through the orchid garden of Inka Terra El Pueblo hotel or just take a birdwatchers walk along the hotel’s cloud forest pathways. Believe us… it is worth it.
Travelers will have free time in Cusco to wander and discover the former capital of the Inca Empire at their own and to explore the astonishing narrow streets of this tile roof colonial town will be an unforgettable experience. Most visitors to Cusco return home some-how disappointed for not having this free time.
