Discover the Lost City of the Incas


Forgotten for several centuries and found by Hiram Bingham in 1911 the Incan city of Machu Picchu forms the central part of this tour. Elsewhere, you will get to experience the city of Cusco, its traditional food and its historic red fortress. Then as you proceed along the Sacred Valley of the Incas you will learn of the battle that they won at Ollantaytambo against the Spaniards. Machu Picchu now considered one of the New Seven Wonders Of The World and a UNESCO World Heritage Site provides an awesome and historic backdrop to this tour, that finally ends with a trip to a museum to delve into 3000 years that preceded the pre-Columbian era.

This morning after breakfast, you are driven to the Sacred Valley to visit Ollantaytambo and Pisac. Hundreds of visitors and people from remote communities dressed in their traditional and colorful attires travel to the Pisaq market to barter their products. Enjoy some time to stroll around the market and buy souvenirs, followed by lunch in a typical ‘hacienda’.  

 

Depart Pisac and continue along the valley to Ollantaytambo, location of the Temple of the Sun, formed of six gigantic monoliths, whose total weight exceeds 50 tons. The Terrace of the Ten Niches is another striking sight. Ollantaytambo was the site of the only successful Inca battle against the Spanish conquerors and the only town in the area to still retain its original Inca layout.
