Day
A shuttle will meet you at the Cusco airport to transfer you to your hotel in the Sacred Valley.

Once you have checked into your hotel, get ready to relax in their facilities or to rest in your room.
Overnight at a hotel in Sacred Valley
A shuttle will pick you up in the morning at your hotel to take you to the village of Chinchero*. This traditional Cusco urban center is unique not only for its privileged view of the Sacred Valley landscape but also because its inhabitants preserve the traditions and knowledge inherited from the Incas, which is reflected in their clothing and handicrafts. In addition to its cultural legacy, in Chinchero, you can visit the agricultural terraces and its beautiful 17th-century church, built over an ancient Inca palace and considered one of the first Catholic constructions in Peru. Next, continue your journey through the Sacred Valley towards Ollantaytambo, making a previous stop at a viewpoint to enjoy the scenery before arriving at the Museo Vivo de Yucay. This museum is a center for interpreting Andean traditions, with demonstrations of textile work, adobe handicrafts, ceramics, and silverware using the same ancient Inca techniques. Alpacas, llamas, and sheep live in the place, which you can see up close and even feed. Finally, start your tour of the town of Ollantaytambo with a delicious lunch. Enjoy the Andean essence of the place as you stroll through its streets - which still maintain Inca urban planning and have been inhabited ever since - and climb the iconic fortress built into the side of the mountain. At the end of your visit, return to your hotel to rest filled with the Inca spirit.
*Sunday visits include the Chinchero market.

Your visit to Machu Picchu begins with an hour-and-a-half train ride through spectacular Andean scenery to Machu Picchu Pueblo, departing from Ollanta station. From here, you will take a 25-minute bus ride to Machu Picchu, the 'lost city of the Incas.' It is believed that the archaeological site was built around 1450 by the Inca Pachacutec as a vacation residence. However, a century later, the city was abandoned after the Spanish conquest, sparing the destruction that came to other Inca settlements. Instead, the jungle slowly swallowed its stone constructions and hid them, protecting them. During the guided tour, learn about the origins of this impressive citadel, presenting its most outstanding monuments. At the indicated time, return to Aguas Calientes. Lunch included.
*Lunch time may vary depending on the entrance to the citadel.

Today, you can optionally return to Machu Picchu to visit the other attractions that the citadel houses. We recommend you get up early and enjoy the morning on the mountain; it is an unforgettable experience! You can choose between climbing Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu Mountain, both with incredible views of the buildings of the archaeological site. Another option to visit is the Inca bridge, a secret military road controlling access to Machu Picchu. In the afternoon, board the train back to Ollanta station, and a shuttle will take you to your hotel in Cusco.
*Remember to purchase your tickets before your trip due to the limited capacity of the citadel. Tickets are subject to availability.

Please take advantage of the free morning in Cusco to rest at the hotel, stroll through its cobblestone streets, or buy some handicrafts. In the afternoon, enjoy a guided tour of this charming city, which was the capital of the Inca Empire. The time begins with a visit to the Convent of Santo Domingo, built over the Inca temple of Coricancha, one of the essential precincts dedicated to the sun cult. Ancient chronicles say that its walls were covered with gold leaf and filled with golden representations of nature. Next, visit the Cathedral, the most imposing monument in the Plaza de Armas. Then head to the hills of Cusco, where the fortress of Sacsayhuaman is located, whose imposing walls offer an impressive panoramic view of Cusco. Next, continue to Qenqo, an archaeological complex of religious use where it is believed that the Incas practiced agriculture-related rituals. Your tour ends at Puca Pucara, in Quechua 'red fort', an architectural complex of supposed military use, with multiple environments, squares, baths, aqueducts, and towers. It is believed to have been used by the Inca entourage while the leader rested in Tambomachay. After the visit, you will return to your hotel.
