Machu Picchu - 4 Day Tour

Known throughout the world as one of the new Seven Wonders, the ancient Inca Citadel of Machu Picchu is by far the most spectacular creation of the 15th century Inca Empire. 

This 4 day itinerary begins with a full day city tour of Cusco, taking in not only the most important sites in and around the city but also visiting the bustling local market of San Pedro.  Day Two takes us deep into the Sacred Valley where we will have an opportunity to see local artisans working their craft, as well as visiting the visually stunning ruins at Moray and the fascinating salt mines at Maras. Day three is all about Machu Picchu! Starting with the spectacular sunrise over the Andes we make our very own pilgrimage to the Sacred Citadel, where our expert guide will provide a fascinating 2-3 hour tour of the site.

    Stop At: Sacsayhuaman, Cusco 08000 Peru

    This fascinating Inca site was an important site for military and ceremonial purposes and is composed almost entirely of massive boulders held together without mortar.

    Duration: 45 minutes

    Stop At: Sacred Valley of the Incas, 0051 Peru

    In the Sacred Valley we will visit Pisaq, one of the largest cities built by the Incas. Built centuries ago, the complex of stone terraces is an incredible example of ancient masonry and hydraulic engineering. We will enjoy a delicious lunch together before finishing the day with a visit to the vibrant city of Ollantaytambo. The last of the inca cities, but still very much thriving, this is where we will spend our second night.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Pisac Peru

    Today we visit the spectacular terraced Inca ruins that are situated high above the valley floor. We will climb to the top of the ruins for spectacular views across the Sacred Valley, and your guide will teach you about the religious, astronomical and military functions of the site and the terraces that allowed the Incas to grow food at altitudes above 11,000 feet!

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Complejo Arqueologico Chinchero, Chinchero 08651 Peru

    A town where many of the old traditions still exist, we will visit the women's weaving cooperative to watch a demonstration of local weavers who are still using Inca techniques for dyeing fabric and for weaving traditional patterns.

    Duration: 45 minutes

    Stop At: Moray Valle Sagrado de los Incas, Maras 08655 Peru

    Located in the high plains above Urubamba, these ancient mines were created by the Incas but (thanks to the interest of some celebrity Peruvian chefs!) are still in use today. The thousands of pools or ‘pocitos’ are a spectacular site, each yielding around 150kg of salt per month. The famous Peruvian Pink Salt found in markets throughout Peru is sourced here at Maras.

    Duration: 45 minutes

    Stop At: Archaeological Park Ollantaytambo, Ollantaytambo 08676 Peru

    Today we will take a steady drive through breathtaking scenery, deep into the Sacred Valley of the Incas.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Santuario Historico de Machu Picchu, Machu Picchu Peru

    Our final day is the jewel in the crown of this tour, as we visit Machu Picchu, one of the new 7 Wonders of the World. Entering the Sacred Citadel for the first time is a memory that will stay with you forever. No amount of National Geographic photographs can do it justice! For many people, standing in the same place as the ancient Inca pilgrims is a truly spiritual experience. There will be plenty of time to take photos before your guide begins a 2-3 hour guided tour. Experts in the history of the site, our guides and their stories provide the perfect complement to the magnificent ruins that surround you.

    Taking a short break to rest and maybe enjoy a snack, there is an option to hike up to the Inka Bridge or to Inti Punku, the Sun Gate, which used to be the main entrance to Machu Picchu and offers spectacular views of the entire site. You will then have two hours of free time to explore on your own before taking the bus back down to Aguas Clients. We will have lunch together before taking a mid afternoon train back to Ollantaytambo or Poroy where you will have a private transfer back to your hotel in Cusco.

    Duration: 3 hours
