Welcome to Cusco, the historical capital of Peru! Upon arrival, a representative from the Machu Picchu Explorer travel agency will be awaiting you to transfer you to your hotel.

Day 2: Cusco City Tour     

The city of Cusco is one of the most important destinations of Peru. It was the ancient capital of the Inca empire, with its streets and buildings still reflecting its grand historical past. Due to this, the city is known as “the belly button of the world”. In the morning/afternoon, our professional guide will accompany you to discover the best of this Inca city. We will begin by visiting the Temple of the Sun (also called Qoricancha). After, we will visit the treasures that the Basilica Cathedral of Cusco has to offer, and then finish by visiting the ruins adjacent to the city, Sacsayhuaman, Qenqo, Puka Pukara, and Tambomachay.

Next, we will discover a typical day work in the community. We will learn about their weaving techniques, their work on the lands, etc. Then we’ll enjoy a delicious menu based on organic products.

We leave our friends from Huayllafara to visit the wonderful scenery of the Sacred Valley, home to several real properties of the Inca emperors.

In the market, you will have the opportunity to appreciate the beautiful handicrafts, local fruits, vegetables and other natural products. After visiting Pisac, we enjoy a hearty lunch, based on a variety of products in the area. Then we visit the spectacular fortress of Ollantaytambo.
