Get acquainted with Cuzco on a walking tour that includes a special visit to a coca shop and an opportunity to try unique-tasting coca tea.

Day 3 Sacred Valley/Ollantaytambo

Journey through the lush greenery of the Sacred Valley and pay a visit to a local community. Make new friends and learn about the traditional lifestyle these proud people lead. Spend the night in the town of Ollantaytambo - home to some of the oldest continuously inhabited dwellings in South America.

Days 4-5 Cuzco

Hop on a local bus, head back to Cuzco and make use of the included access to the impressive archaeological sites of Sacsayhuaman, Qenqo and Tambomachay, on the outskirts of Cuzco.

Day 7 Machu Picchu/Cuzco

Rise early to meet the magnificence of Machu Picchu. Explore these special ruins with a local guide and wander through the temples, palaces and living quarters, remnants of a once-thriving society.
