Welcome to Lima, ‘The City of the Kings’! You will be met at the airport and privately escorted to your hotel.
This morning you will be picked up and transferred to the airport to take your flight to Cusco.

You spend 3 nights at Explora Sacred Valley - our choice for explorers wishing to get off the beaten track in style and comfort, while discovering the best of the Sacred Valley in intimate and personal way. Nestled in the Sacred Valley Explora’s architecture reflects a respectful fusion between the history and natural beauty of the region. The story continues inside, with modern and airy suites, a superb fine dining restaurant, and a host of knowledgeable local guides.

Your all-inclusive package includes: transfers to and from the airport, more than 40 options to explore, meals & drinks, meaning you have nothing left to do but enjoy the exhilaration of true adventure away from the traditional tourist hotspots.
With a huge selection of enticing activities on offer, Explora Sacred Valley runs a highly flexible excursion program, all of which you can choose from on the day, depending on weather conditions and your own specific areas of interest. Each of the guided walks; picture perfect hikes; trails to hidden ancient sites; or adrenaline packed bike rides have been designed to offer the ultimate in pioneering adventure, leaving you feeling as if you are truly getting under the skin of this unique and memorable place.
Today you can once again chose between the different activities offered by Explora Sacred Valley.
After breakfast you will be then transferred to Ollanta train station. The train ride takes you through the Sacred Valley of the Incas up to Machu Picchu. Upon arrival, a small coach takes you up the steep roads to the entrance of the citadel. During a guided tour, you will experience the uniqueness of the location and the genius that went into its construction, making this Inca site one of the Seven New Wonders of the World. In the late afternoon, you will start your train ride back to Ollanta to be then escorted back to your hotel in Cusco.
Today your morning will be at leisure. Later in the afternoon, you walk through the major sites of interest in Cusco. You visit the famous cathedral with its magnificently carved woodwork, ornate altar and many hundreds of canvases from the 17th-century Cusco Painting School. You continue exploring the cultural wealth of Cusco at the Temple of the Sun where we witness the incredible masonry of the Incas, an engineering feat that remains an enigma. Afterwards you walk along Hatunrumiyoc Street named after the 12-angled stone clearly visible in the remaining walls of what used to be Inca Roca’s Palace. You make a last stop in San Blas artisan quarter. Its steeped cobblestone alleys not only offer spectacular views of the city but are lined with workshops and galleries, a great way to soak in Cusco's artistic atmosphere.
At proper time, you will be picked up from your hotel and privately escorted to the airport for your next flight.
