Tour Itinerary

The most important place to visit on your trip to Peru or South America is Machu Picchu which was discovered in 1911 after lying abandoned for centuries. We catch the early morning train on one of the world’s great railway journeys.

The track slowly climbs out of Cusco passing through small communities on the high plains. The scenery is spectacular with wonderful views of the mountains and snow peaks of the Andes.

As the train descends into the beautiful Urubamba Valley we will notice that the vegetation becomes increasingly tropical. It is here in amongst this lush vegetation that we find the ancient citadel of Machu Picchu.

Pisac Market & Ruins

Pisca Market – Sacred ValleyThe town of Pisac is an important archaeological site in the region of Cusco.

There is a colourful market on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays in the morning.

Here we experience a vibrant atmosphere of communities, traditions and bartering. There are many handicrafts and textiles made in true pre-Columbain style to purchase. Every Sunday there is also a procession of the mayors, who at around 09h30 go to church to attend the traditional Mass held in Quechua.

Ollantaytambo

It is here in this most beautiful, strategic spot, 60 kilometres from Cusco, that the Inca Pachacutec built his fortress of Ollantaytambo. It is a beautiful setting and the hills that surround it hide some of the most impressive ruins in the Valley.

It contains structures such as the Temple of the Sun, the Royal Hall, the Incahuatana and the Banos de la Princesa (Princess Baths).

This site is one of the few places that the Spaniards lost a battle during the conquest.

Chincheros

The remains of what was the royal hacienda of Tupac Inca Yupanqui, as well as a beautiful colonial temple built on Inca foundations.

There is also a Sunday market here, although it attracts fewer tourists than Pisac. You can find many handicrafts and local produce here.
