Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu Tour 2 days
From US$557.00
Overview
This 2-day tour of the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu is a great way to hit regional highlights without having to plan a thing. Visit the Moray ruins, Ollantaytambo, and Aguas Claientes before heading up for a full-day tour of Machu Picchu. Learn about the iconic ruins from your guide as you go, gaining a local perspective and insight that you might miss on your own.
What to Expect
Day 1: Pisac – Moray – Salt Mines – Ollantaytambo – Aguas Calientes
We will pick you up at your hotel at 7am, with our private van and head towards the Sacred Valley of the Incas, taking the direct route to Pisac. Then you are off to the mirador of Taray to enjoy a classic view of the Urubamba valley with crops dressing the mountains like a carpet. Onward, we drive to the archaeological site of Pisac, where you can see the biggest Inca cemetery with more than 2000 tombs. Here we will spend more than 2 hours, exploring the Inca city. Then we head back to the colourful market of Pisac, spend some time visiting it and then drive to Urumbamba for lunch.
With timeless charm we visit the archeological site of Moray also known as “The Greenhouses of the Incas” an evolutionary bowl of ecological difference. 
Expanding on our journey to the colonial town of Maras, ascending our hike downhill to the pre-Inca salt mine.  Finally we drive to Ollantaytambo, having time to explore the age old and bustling Inca village and the massive Inca Ruins, with a tour provided by our guide. Then at 7pm, we will take the train to Aguas Calientes where we will spend the night in a hotel.
Day 2: Aguas Calientes – Machu Picchu – Cusco
Bursting out with excitement on your final surreal day, we take the 5.30am bus to Machu Picchu archeological site to enjoy the morning sunrise. With our 2 hour tour we make sure to explore every nook and cranny of this New 7 Wonder of the World and UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site, the magestic Machu Picchu Citadel. What an unforgettable experience. Your guide will expertly direct you through the energetic ruins and its diverse main streets. Then on your own, you can wander around the town squares of the world’s spiritual center of esoteric wisdom, as well as climb the intricately carved stairways made of stone. Or you can stay still and find the peace within as you sit in the pure delight of the moment.
If you wish to indulge in a few of the following activities on your own you can: (not included in the price)
Train to Cusco: You will descend to Aguas Calientes, eat a leisurely lunch and at 4:22pm board the Expedition train for the return trip to Cusco. Upon reaching Ollantaytambo train station, you will transfer to a private van for your return to Cusc, arriving at your hotel at 8pm.
