The trip of a lifetime! My best friend and I chose this tour to celebrate our 30th Birthdays - it was Amazing!!! We had a really nice time visiting Cusco, Machu Picchu and going to the Rainbow Mountain. The tour guides were really nice and we told us a lot about everything. We visited in November and for Machu Picchu this was amazing - it was misty in the morning and sunny by mid-morning, so we got to see it with all weather types. Highly recommend going at 6am and spending most of the day there - circuit 2 and 4 were great! We even hiked up one of the mountains. Carlos, Judy, and Wilson were great and really educated us about each site.

Great way to experience Peru The tour was a great way to experience Cusco, the sacred valley, Machu Picchu and the Vinicunca mountain. We only had 4 full days, and it was the right amount of time. I was there with my best friend celebrating our 30th, so we will always cherish this moment. The tour guides (Carlos, Judy, and Wilson) were very friendly and knowledgeable. They helped us get immersed to the history of the Incas, and made us feel comfortable throughout the trip. The accommodation provided as part of the package was very adequate, and the overall experience was great.

DESCRIPTION

Description Tour by tourist train to Machu Picchu

Discover the ancient magic on the 2-day tour of Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley, an unforgettable experience filled with history, culture, and breathtaking landscapes.

With the “Sacred Valley & Machu Picchu Expedition tour”, you will enjoy the valley most treasured by the Incas due to its special geographical and climatic qualities. It was one of the main production points because of the richness of its lands and the place where the best corn grain in Peru is produced. It is comprised of numerous rivers that flow down gorges and small valleys and boasts numerous archaeological monuments and indigenous villages.

On our tour, we will visit PISAQ, or P’isaqa, which means partridge (a type of bird abundant in this area). It is known that the architecture of this Inca enclosure combines mystical Inca constructions with the natural wealth of the Urubamba Valley. For the Incas, cities were built based on the figurative designs of animals.

THE PISAQ MARKET OR PISAQ CRAFTS FAIR is one of the most renowned on the continent and is open every day in the main square of Pisaq. You can find all kinds of textile, ceramic, goldsmith, agricultural products, and medicinal plants as souvenirs. URUBAMBA, after an emotion-filled morning here, we will enjoy a buffet lunch in one of the restaurants that offers the best presentations of typical dishes from the Cusco region.

OLLANTAYTAMBO, in the time of the Incas, was a Tambo or accommodation city. It was a key point to reach the Machu Picchu Sanctuary through the Inca Trail. Today, it is one of the most monumental architectural complexes of our ancestors, built over two mountains in a strategic position overlooking the entire valley. It served as a military, religious, administrative, and agricultural complex. Entrance is through a door called Punku-punku, made of stone with a double imperial jamb. It is the entrance to a city with a prestigious legend. You begin by climbing meticulously well-drawn stairs, and at the top is the masterpiece of the Inca architects and stonemasons.

Ollantaytambo is the only living Inca city, which remains almost intact, and its houses still serve as homes where their descendants live. The design of the city, its axes, its urban structure, the beauty of its volumes, and the play of light and shadow attract everyone. The main temple has a facade with six pink granite monoliths brought from elsewhere and perfectly assembled into the rock.

The Sacred Valley tour is one of the most popular activities when one visits the city of Cusco. Also, in the Sacred Valley is the town of Ollantaytambo. Ollantaytambo is an Inca town and is where the train station that takes us to Machu Picchu is located. Everyone who comes to Cusco and the Sacred Valley does so with the intention of touring Machu Picchu.

We will embark on an adventure from Cusco to Machu Picchu at a lower cost. The Expedition train is a tourist service equipped with all the comforts on board and decorated with inspiration from Inca culture – the perfect prelude to visiting the citadel of Machu Picchu. Additionally, we will have highly trained staff taking care of us during the journey. Additionally, we’ll enjoy the Onboard Sale service, offering a wide variety of top-quality products.

MACHU PICCHU, an ancient Andean Inca town, located in the Eastern Cordillera of southern Peru, in the Andes mountain range at 2,430 meters above sea level; it is located in the Cusco region, Urubamba province, Machupicchu district. Machu Picchu would have been one of the resting residences of Pachacutec, the ninth Inca of Tahuantinsuyo between 1438 and 1470.

It is considered, at the same time, a masterpiece of architecture and engineering. Its unique architectural and landscape features and the veil of mystery that much of the literature published about the site has woven around it have made it one of the most popular tourist destinations on the planet, as well as one of the 7 wonders of the modern world.
