Cusco, the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, the Sacred Valley including Pisac and Ollantaytambo ... these are the higlights you can see on this excellent short trip.
All of these extraordinary places will give you a real taste for this stunning area of Peru which is known throughout the world for its unmissable sights. Cusco is a colonial city built on Incan foundations. Take time to explore the friendly city itself, as well as outlying ruins. Then the more low-lying Sacred Valley is worth your time. Here the towns of Pisac and Ollantaytambo offer markets and more Inca ruins. But of course the highlight for most people is the world famous Machu Picchu. One of the new Seven Wonders of the World, it is unmissable and breathtaking.
You have a guide for the times we feel this will add to your experience, for example looking round historical sites such as Machu Picchu, but at other times you are left to explore on your own. All your transfers and transport arrangements are sorted, so the whole trip will be very easy, leaving you to simply enjoy the wonderful places you've come to see.
If you want longer in Peru, that is not a problem, just talk to us about what you'd like to add to this experience and we'll put it all together for you.
