Day 4: Sacred Valley
Breakfast in hotel
Full day tour, including visits to the colorful Pisac Indian Market and the Ollantaytambo Fortress.  At an elevation of 8,500 feet, the Urubamba Valley, or Sacred Valley of the Incas, is the historic heart of the Inca Empire.  It was intensively cultivated with terraces increasing its harvest several fold.  Small villages lined the valley floor, while the stone fortresses of Ollantaytambo and Pisac served the dual purpose of providing protection and serving as religious centers.  Without the benefit of the wheel, the Incas built massive stone cities and ruled an empire stretching 3,300 miles over some of the harshest terrain on earth.  Without the use of mortar, the Inca constructed their cities, suspension bridges, and aqueduct systems, with an engineering expertise that has survived five hundred years of natural disasters, conquest, and modern development.  PLEASE NOTE THE PISAC MARKET ONLY TAKES PLACES ON TUESDAYS, THURSDAYS AND SUNDAYS.
Overnight at the selected hotel in the Sacred Valley.

Day 5 Sacred Valley - Machu Picchu
Breakfast in hotel
Early in the morning, you will be transferred to the railway station for the tourist class train to Machu Picchu.  The 3 hour train journey passes through picturesque Andean scenery, passing traditional villages, Inca ruins and rushing rivers.  We'll descend 1300 metres through the Sacred Valley of the Incas and follow the Urubamba River to Aguas Calientes.  After dropping off our luggage we'll take the 20 minute bus ride up to Machu Picchu , perched 600 metres above the river.  After lunch your archeological guide will take you on a walking tour of the site. The famous lost city of the Incas is one of the most magical and mysterious places on Earth. Situated on the spine of a jungle-cloaked granite peak towering some 600 metres above an entrenched meandering of the roaring river below, the site is frequently shrouded in misty clouds pierced by the powerful equatorial sun. Constructed from precisely sculptured granite blocks carefully joined with the projecting exposed stone of the surrounding mountain, the site may well be the finest architectural achievement of the new world.
Overnight at Aguas Calientes.
