Pisac is popular for its weekend market. Farmers and craftsmen from neighbouring villages set up tents around the main square to sell their products. The village is also home to Inca ruins that nestles on a hilltop, overlooking the valley.
This Inca ruins is second to the city of Machu Picchu in size. Here we will be giving you a complete tour of the complex. You will be introduced to Incas farming techniques and their rituals that they practised here.
We will then drive you to Urubamba. Here we will be serving you a typical Peruvian lunch (included in the price) before visiting the Ollantaytambo fortress.
Ollantaytambo is a beautiful village snuggled between the Andes mountains. It is the best example of Inca Empire’s town planning. The village is snuggled in between two hills. We will be visiting the fortress here.
It was built by Inca ruler Pachacutec who also built Machu Picchu and Choquequirao.
However, Manco Inca expanded it. It served as his stronghold when the Spanish invaded Ollantaytambo. He and his troops managed to defeat Spanish intruders in the battle of Ollantaytambo.
After the detailed tour of the complex, we will be dropping you off at the hotel in Ollantaytambo.
After relishing an early morning breakfast, we will be transferring you to Ollantaytambo train station. Here you will be boarding a Ollantaytambo Aguas Calientes tourist train. It will be a three hours train ride along the course of the Urubamba river.

The most awaited day on your trip to Peru. After relishing an early morning breakfast, we will be transferring you to the bus station. Here you will be boarding a 25 minutes bus up the hill to the citadel of Machu Picchu.
Once at the entrance of the citadel, our representative will be meeting you and will be assisting you in entering the citadel.
As you will be walking into the citadel, the clouds would be clearing by as the golden rays of the sun would shimmer on the walls of the citadel.
Our local expert will be giving you a detailed tour of the citadel for two hours. During the trip, you will be visiting some of the important parts of the citadel like the ceremonial centre, main plaza, house of the priests and more.

After a relaxed morning, we will be picking you up from your hotel in Cusco at 0130 PM for a Cusco City Tour with our local expert guide.
Cusco City Tour:
At 0130 PM, we will be picking you up from your hotel to begin the Cusco City Tour. On this half day tour, we will be visiting the Cusco Cathedral, Sun Temple (Coricancha), Sacsayhuaman, Q’enqo, Puca Pucara and Tambomachay.
Cusco Cathedral stands right on the main square of Cusco – Plaza de Armas. It was once an Inca Palace. On conquering Cusco, the Spanish rulers demolished the palace and built the cathedral on its remains. It portrays a blend of Inca and Colonial architecture.
Qorikancha, also referred to as the temple of Sun, was a supreme site of worship to Incas. The Incas revered Sun (Inti) and this former Inca temple was very important to them. But, like most sites in Cusco, the Spanish rulers demolished the temple and built the church on its remains.
Legends say that the temple was once covered in Gold. When the Spanish rulers abducted the then Inca Emperor, Atahualpa, most of the gold from the temple was paid as a ransom. But the Spanish to the typical colonial way, beheaded him on receiving the ransom.
The tour continues with a drive to Sacsayhuaman. It is a notable Inca fortress. Here you will be able to see some of the impressive stonework of Incas.
Each rock here weighs over a ton. It is still a mystery though how the Incas transported these rocks here.
We will then visit Q’enqo. This small archaeological site was used by Incas as a place where they made sacrifices and mummified corpses.
The tour continues with a driver further to Puca Pucara. This massive rock was used by Inca militants as a watchtower to safeguard Cusco from any intruders.
Finally, we will be visiting Tambomachay. It has a series of aqueducts which were built by Incas and are in use even today. This place served as a spa to the political elite.
After the tour, we will be driving you back to the centre of Cusco City.
After breakfast, we will be picking you up from your hotel and will be transferring you to Cusco Airport.
