Day 2: /Cusco/Sacred Valley of the Incas
After early breakfast, transfer to the airport to take the flight to Cusco. Arrival at Cusco airport, reception and transfer to the Sacred Valley
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.

Day 3: Sacred valley/Machu Picchu
You will be transferred to Ollanta station where you will catch the train to Machu Picchu. The 1.5-hour train journey follows the ever-narrowing gorge of the Urubamba River to Aguas Calientes town on the way you will see picturesque Andean scenery and traditional villages. As we approach the Machu Picchu Sanctuary, the valley turns into a canyon and the vegetation changes to a cloud forest. Then you'll board a bus for a 30-minute drive up the switchback road to Machu Picchu. Once at the site and after an orientation by the guide, then have sometime guided exploration of the fabled Inca citadel. Situated on the spine of a jungle cloaked granite peak towering some 600 meters above an entrenched meander 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. After lunch, we'll descend by bus around 3:00 p.m. to catch the train to Cusco and then bus transfer to selected Hotel (B).
Recommended optional : Overnight at Machu Picchu at extra cost.

Day 4: Cusco
We'll enjoy a guided tour of the nearby Inca ruins including Kenko, the ceremonial bath of Tambomachay and the amazing Sacsayhuaman, a huge fortress of massive stones.
