The Sacred Valley & Machu Picchu Tour – 2D/1N

Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu TourThis tour is a combination of the famous Sacred Valley Tour and the Classic Train Tour to Machu Picchu. It packs an incredible amount of beauty and history into 2 days. It includes a full day sacred valley tour, beautiful Vistadome train ride to Aguas Calientes, lodging in a nice and confortable hotel and dinner at the best restaurant in Aguas Calientes.

Last but definitely not least is a visit to and tour of Machu Picchu along with the opportunity to climb Huayna Picchu Mountain!

The Sacred Valley is an incomparably beautiful stretch of small villages and ancient ruins spread across a broad plain and rugged mountain slopes northwest of Cusco.

The Sacred Valley of the Incas is the main valley of Cusco, capital of the Inca Empire. The valley was of great value to the Incas due to its special geographical location and ideal climate. It was the best place for maize production in Peru as well as a great source of natural wealth.

Through the valley rolls the Urubamba river (called the Willcamayu by the Incas; today part of it is also called the Vilcanota), a vital religious element of the Incas’ cosmology.

The Incas not only believed that the flow of the Urubamba was inevitably tied to the constellations and the mountain peaks, but also that the river was the earthbound counterpart of the Milky Way.

Machu Picchu is considered a masterpiece of architecture and engineering. Its unique architectural features and landscape contribute to a veil of mystery woven around much of the literature published about the site.

The magic and mystery of Machu Picchu is internationally recognized and it has been on the List of World Heritage Sites of UNESCO since 1983 as part of a cultural and ecological site known as the historic sanctuary of Machu Picchu.

ITINERARY

Pre-trek briefing: You will have a thorough briefing with your guide 1 or 2 days before your tour. Your guide will meet you at our office or at your hotel in Cusco and you can take this opportunity to ask questions and make any final preparations.

Day 1: Cusco – Pisac – Ollantaytambo – Aguas Calientes

We will pick you up at your hotel around 7 a.m. and drive to Pisac to see the first Inca ruins of the tour. At Pisac you can see magnificent Inca remains.

The ancient architecture and engineering of the Inca temples is breathtaking and will sweep you off your feet.

Our guided tour of Pisac lasts about 2 hours. Then we will head back to the valley to visit the most colorful and traditional local market in Cusco region and where you can buy traditional textiles at low prices. After our visit to the market our sightseeing continues as we drive along the beautiful Sacred Valley.

Our next destination is Urubamba. we ́ll arrive there at around 12 p.m. In this stuning town you will have the opportunity to choose one of the many delicious local restaurants to have lunch at (not included)

From Urubamba it ‘s 30 minutes drive to get to the last Inca ruins on our tour, known as Ollantaytambo (Inca palace). This ruin was built with pink granite rocks and is another impressive example of Inca craftsmanship.

Here you can see the second biggest rock from the Inca times (90 tons) which was used as part of the Temple of the Sun. we will have a guided tour of the site.

After we will head to the train station, which is 15 minutes by foot. We will take the Vistadome train to Aguas Calientes. During the trip you will see many glaciers and snow-capped peaks, lush, green valleys and Incan farming terraces on both sides of the valley.

Upon arrival to Aguas Calientes you will check in to your nice and confortable hotel. The natural hot springs in town are an unbeatable way to spend a late afternoon/early evening if time is available before dinner. Dinner will be at a local restaurant.

Day 2: Aguas Calientes – Machu Picchu – Cusco

You will have breakfast at your hotel and then we will take a very early bus along the winding road to Machu Picchu, the Inca city that was lost to the jungle but rediscovered in 1911 by Hiram Bingham. Declared a UNESCO world heritage site in 1983, Machu Picchu exceeds all expectations.

Perched high on an inaccessible hilltop the citadel is protected by huge cliffs and the raging Urubamba River. Once there you will be given a 2-hour guided walking tour of the site.

Our expert guide who will explain the history of this ancient Inca citadel will make you back in the time by taking you to the most interesting areas of the citadel. After your your Machu Picchu tour, you will have some  time to be at Machu Picchu before you return to Aguas Calientes by bus.

Upon return to Aguas Calientes you will board the expedition train to either Ollantaytambo or to Poroy. From Ollantaytambo or Poroy you will travel by minivan to Cusco and we will drop you off at your hotel. Arrival time in Cusco depends on the time of your train ticket.
