At 0130 PM, we will be picking you up from the hotel for a Cusco City Tour. 

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:

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:

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, as 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. 

Sacsayhuaman:

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. 

Q’enqo:

We will then visit Q’enqo. This small archaeological site was used by Incas as a place where they made sacrifices and mummified corpses. 

Puca Pucara:

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. 

Tambomachay:

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. 

  • Meals Included: Breakfast

Day 4Sacred Valley Tour

After the breakfast at your hotel, we will be picking you up at 0830 for your full day Sacred Valley Tour. We will begin with a drive to Pisac. This is one of the most charismatic villages in the Sacred Valley. 

Pisac:

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.

Urubamba:

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:

Ollantaytambo is a beautiful village. 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 start our journey back to Cusco city. It will be a three hours drive during which you can enjoy the enchanting views of Peruvian highland farms.

Day 7Macaw Clay Lick - Native Community Visit - Tres Chimbadas Lake

Last day of the Amazon Jungle Experience. We will be leaving the lodge early in the morning and will embark on a twenty minutes boat ride on Tambopata River to see the Parrot Clay Lick. Here you will be able to see dozens of brightly colored parrots and parakeets. 

Every morning they fly to the cliff to eat the clay. The clay here helps them to flush out any toxins they may have eaten. 

Often species such as Mealy and Yellow-headed Amazon, Dark Blue-headed Parrot and Parakeet headed are easy to spot here. The clay lick takes place from early in the morning to midday day. However the best time to visit the clay lick is early in the morning when most birds flock in. 

We will then visit the native community of Granja. Here you will have the opportunity to learn about different techniques of farming. The farmer will show you around the farm where they grow fruits like copazu, araza, pijuayo among other tropical fruits that are distinct to the region.
