Machu Picchu + Sacred Valley of The Incas
MACHUPICCHU + SACRED VALLEY OF THE INKAS / TWO DAYS TOUR
- Tour Duration: 2 days 1 night.
- Departure Time: 7:30 am
- End Tour: 11:30 pm
Day 1: Sacred Valley Cusco Pisac Urubamba Ollantaytambo Aguas Calientes.
At 7:30 am you will be transfer from your hotel at earlier time if coordinated. In a tourist bus we travel over the mountains and then we drop 1500 feet to the valley floor of the sacred Urubamba river and the village of Pisac where we will visit a traditional market and you can buy some local souveniers. We then drive up to explore the extensive ruins of Pisac with stunning views over the valley. For those who would prefer to spend more time in the market instead of visiting the ruins, advise your guide so he can organise a time and place to pick you up when they return through the market. We continue on to Urubamba where we stop for you to have lunch. A further 30 mins drive takes us to Ollantaytambo surrounded by the sacred mountains, where we will again discover the magnificence of the Incan constructions and the beauty of the local people in their traditional dress.
You will then be escorted to the train station to board the valle train. This is a 1.5 hr journey to Aguas Calientes where the representative from Hotel will meet you and settle you into your accommodation. You have free time to visit the hot springs if you like and then dinner and overnight in the hotel.
Day 2: Machu picchu- Ollanta- Cusco
After breakfast we take the bus at approx 05.30am and arrive at the ruins at 06.00am when the gates open.
An early morning guided tour of Machupicchu “The Old Sacred Mountain” before the crowds arrive takes approx 2 hrs and leads you through all the most important arqueological sites with the insights of very capable guides. Then you have plenty of free time for more exploring, photos or optional hikes.
We recommend in low season using the bus up to conserve your energy for your 2 hour group tour exploring Machu Picchu (2,400 m) and optional hikes to follow. However in high season June to Oct people who want to climb Huayna Picchu mountain within the Machu Picchu site almost need to walk up to be first in the long line of people who arrive before the buses to get one of the limited Huayna Picchu permits. If you definitely want to climb Huayna Picchu mountain please let us know in the Cusco office at you checkin.
Your guide will advise you of where and when to use your bus ticket for the journey back down to Aguas Calientes to collect your luggage from the hostel.
He will also provide you with the necessary details for the afternoon train return to Ollantaytambo with private transport on to Cusco, arriving 9:30 pm approx
