Located about 100 kilometers southeast of the city of Cusco, at an altitude of 5,200 meters above sea level, specifically in the Cordillera de Vilcanota. It is a mountainous formation colored in bands by various shades of minerals such as red, green, yellow, rose and other variations.

DAY 1 – Arrival in Cusco – Transfer to Hotel

When arriving in Cusco our staff will be waiting at the airport to take you to your hotel where you will be staying. On the way to the hotel you will receive some relevant information about Cusco, such as altitude, climate, etc. In the hotel will be served a tea made with coca leaves. This tea will help to alleviate the effects of altitude greatly.

During the next few minutes our team will give you important information about Cusco, such as: tourist attractions to visit in your free time, and especially about the tours that will take place.

Tips for restaurants, money exchange offices and great places for shopping will also be talked about at this time.

As Cusco is at an altitude of 3,400 meters (over 11,000 feet) above sea level, it is extremely advisable to rest for at least two hours, once you arrive at your hotel.

  • Overnight: Cusco

Day 2 - Cusco Archaeological Tour

On the second day you will Wake up early with a good breakfast.  After breakfast you can go out to enjoy your free time, getting to know the city of Cusco and its beauties. As the ancient capital of the Inca Empire, Cusco is a city that breathes history, art and a spectacular culture.

The tour will begin in the afternoon, starting at 01:15 p.m., so please enjoy a nice lunch or bring snacks as you will be returning to the hotel around 06:30 p.m.

We will visit the beautiful Cathedral of Cusco which is also a museum that shows religious works done by natives in the time of the Spanish rule. This museum shows similarities between the Inca and European culture, from the 16th to the 18th centuries, influenced by the Catholic Church, creating a style of painting called “Cusquenha School”.

After the Cathedral, we will visit the Qoricancha, or Temple of the Sun. Qoricancha means “Golden Surroundings”. The temple of Qoricancha is in the current temple and precinct of Santo Domingo. The Qoricancha was the most important religious and architectural center during the Inca empire. People migrated here to give maximum worship to the sun god. The Qoricancha at that time was considered the center of the Andean universe within the Andean worldview.

After our visit to the Temple of the Sun we will continue to four archaeological sites: Sacsayhuaman, Qenqo, Pukapukara and Tambomachay.


Sacsayhuaman means “Head of the Puma”. It is also known as the second house of the Sun, the first being Qoricancha. When the Spaniards arrived in 1533, they were astonished in front of such an immense megalithic monument of stone walls of enormous weight. Sacsayhuaman was built on top of a hill, and even today, those who visit it have a magnificent view of the city of Cusco.


Qenqo means “labyrinth”, the name was given by Spanish settlers. Perhaps they named it ‘’labyrinth’’ because of its channels “zigzagging” or by other smaller corridors that are in its interior. During the Inca period this ruin was a temple for public ceremonies in contemplation to the sun god, the Moon and the Stars.


Pukapukara means “Red Fortress”, the name is given by the color of the earth where the archaeological group is located. The scholars think that because of its position overlooking the Cusco valley, it was at least used as a military base.


Tambomachay means place of rest. Tambomachay boasts complex architecture adapted to the natural landscape; consisting of a series of aqueducts, channels and several waterfalls that flow between the stones. Tambomachay was first built for the ‘’God’’ of water and then as the rest home of the Inca Yupanqui.

Finishing second day we will return to Cusco around 06:20 p.m. During our return to the hotel, those who prefer, can go to Plaza de Armas, and enjoy shopping, drinks, people watching and dinner.

We will leave for the city of Pisac, located approximately 33 km from Cusco. Pisac means “Partridge”, the name was given because the base where it is built has the shape of this bird.

The archaeological site is located on top of the mountain, with admirable sets of terraces that surround the mountains.  These terraces were formerly used to cultivate tubers and vegetables.

Pisac has a handicraft market located in the main square of the city, where you can find ceramics, paintings, textiles and silverware all perfect for gifts or souvenirs. After the tour of the ruins of Pisac, you will have free time to get to know the town and also to shop.

Our adventure is just beginning!

After Pisac, we will leave for Urubamba, where we will stop for our lunch (lunch is included in the tour). During the trip to the restaurant we will go through different types of landscapes, each one more spectacular than the last.

After our lunch we will leave for Ollantaytambo. Located at an altitude of 2792 meters above sea level, the name comes from the word “Ollanta”, which was an Inca captain and “Tambo”, which means city that offers lodging and food to travelers. During the Inca empire, Ollantaytambo was a strategic military, agricultural and religious center dedicated to the worship of water.

On the third day, our tour ends at around 04:00 p.m. at 06:30 p.m. you will NEED to be at the train station of Ollantaytambo to travel to Aguas Calientes (also called Machu Picchu Pueblo).

Maras is a village located 48 kilometers from Cusco and is situated at an altitude of 3028 meters above sea level. Maras was an important town during the colonization, because it supplied salt to all the southern mountain range.

The Salineira de Maras (Salt Mines) presents thousands of salt pools, from where the natural salt that comes from the mountain “Qaqawiñay” is extracted. The salt of maras is extracted from the Inca epoch to the present day.

Moray is situated at an altitude of 3385 meters above sea level. Moray presents huge circular terraces (called Andenes), which overlap concentrically in the form of an Amphitheater. These terraces had the function of a large agricultural laboratory, where the Incas experimented and obtained incredible improvements in agriculture, which was the main labor activity and the basis of their economic development.

In each of these terraces it is possible to check different microclimates. In the lower parts of the terraces the highest temperatures can be observed and vice-versa, making it na excelente laboratory for perfecting crops.
