Machu Picchu Classic


Cusco, Sacred Valley & Machu Picchu
6 days
Kim MacQuarry
PRESENTED BY KIM MACQUARRIE, PERU EXPLORER & FOUR-TIME EMMY WINNER

Our classic Machu Picchu package visits stunning archaeological sites and immerses travelers in the culture of Cusco and the Sacred Valley.


You need just 6 days to travel to Machu Picchu and take in all the major sights of Peru’s greatest civilization. As you begin exploring Cusco and the Sacred Valley, you will quickly see that the Incan heartland harbors more than ruins. Our guides direct you to the markets, eateries, and local projects where indigenous traditions are alive and well. Perspective enriched, you will travel by train into the Andean cloud forest for your grand entrance to the “Lost City” of the Incas.

Itinerary



Upon arrival at the Lima airport, meet our Incas Expert Travel representative for a transfer to your confirmed Lima hotel.


If arriving early, you can also take in scenic Parque del Amor (Love Park) in Miraflores for views of Lima's gorgeous coastline.



Fly from Lima to Cusco. Upon arrival at the airport, meet a Incas Expert Travel representative for the short drive to your hotel in the historic center. Along the way, you will see stunning examples of the city’s hybrid Spanish-Inca architecture.

You have the rest of the afternoon to explore the city. Remember to take it easy on your first day at altitude.



Begin your day with a private guided tour of Cusco’s most important sites. Start with a visit to the Cusco Cathedral and Qoricancha. Later, see the impressive ruins of Sacsayhuaman.

Spend the afternoon at your leisure. Shop with locals at San Pedro Market or wander the streets of bohemian San Blas.



Meet your guide for a trip to the Sacred Valley. Your private tour visits the concentric circle terraces of Moray which descend nearly 500 feet into the earth, the multi-hued salt pans of Maras, and the monolithic fortress ruins of Ollantaytambo. At the end of the tour, catch the train to Aguas Calientes, base town for Machu Picchu.



Wake up early and meet your guide for a memorable walk through the “lost city of the Incas” and let yourself be swept away by the magical landscape that surrounds this important ruin. Finish up with last photos and then return to Aguas Calientes town for the return trip to Cusco.

Upgrade options:
Climb Huayna Picchu for views over the ruins or add an extra day in Machu Picchu.



Enjoy a final breakfast at your Cusco hotel. Then meet our representative for a transfer to the airport to begin your journey back home.

You can also customize this itinerary to continue your exploration of Peru’s wonders.
