Along the way you get to enjoy incredible mountain vistas, farming terraces and the Urubamba River flanking you on your left. Our first stop is Pisac, only 45 minutes outside of the city. We visit the bustling and colorful Pisac market before exploring the agriculturally important archeological site that overlooks the city. Enroute, we stop in the small town of Urubamba for lunch. We carefully select the restaurant and we also make sure it´s vegetarian and vegan friendly.

Later, we head over to the historical salt mines, where the locals are still producing salt the same way their ancestors have done for many generations. After, we stop at the fascinating Inca site of Moray, also known as ” The Greenhouse of the Incas.” Finally, we drive to Ollantaytambo to explore the Archeological site that´s famous for being the last resistance of the Incas against the Spanish conquest.

After the tour we will make our way to the Ollantaytambo train station where we will catch the train to Aguas Calientes. Upon arrival, your private guide will transfer you to your hotel to check in for the night.

After an early breakfast at your hotel, we catch the early shuttle bus to the citadel. We arrive just in time to enjoy the sunrise over that magnificent Machu Picchu archeological site (2,430m/7,972ft) declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983 and one of the New Seven Wonders of the World in 2007. We start our very own private guided tour from our experience bilingual guide.

Start your final day in Cusco with a scrumptious breakfast at the hotel. Our guide will pick you up at around 9: 00am. We begin the walking tour in the colorful San Pedro Market, a true representation of authentic Cusqueñan day to day life. The guide will explain the history of this market as you wander through the narrow aisles laden with colorful fabrics, meals, fruit juice, bread, shaman stalls, etc.

After, we visit Cusco’s main square, a busy and vibrant space that marks the colonial center of the city; which features wide stone pathways and well-kept colorful gardens.

Then we venture to the famous street of Hatun Rumiyoc. The walls of the palace have a Snake and Puma on it. Moreover, there you can observe the well-known 12 angle stone which is a symbol of perfection in Incan Architecture.
