Arrive to the hotel, rest of the day at your leisure to acclimatization to the altitude.
Urubamba / Aguas CalientesEarly in the morning we will visit the Inca Fortress and Citadel of Ollantaytambo, built to guard the entrance to this part of the Valley, and protect it from possible invasion from the tribes in the Lower jungle. The Fortress consists of a series of stepped carved stone terraces accessed by long staircases. Later you can walk through the quaint streets of the nearby Town, and get a good idea of what this Strategic Military, Religious, and Agricultural Centre was like during the era of the Inca Empire. After lunch, visit an authentic Quechua Village to feel the way of life of the Inca's ancestors. The Inca himself was a noble Quechua. They live off the land and are always wearing their colourful ponchos, see Quechua children scamper about while woman are weaving their family's clothes. A meaningful experience! Transfer to Ollanta train station to take the train to Aguas Calientes town. Arrive and check in.
Overnight: Aguas Calientes
Meals: Breakfast and lunch.
Aguas Calientes / Machu Picchu / CuscoIn the morning we will visit the famous Inca Citadel of Machu Picchu, also known as "The Lost City of the Incas", one of the best known examples of surviving Inca architecture. Declared a UNESCO “World Heritage Site” and one of the “Seven Wonders of the World,” we will begin our tour of the citadel, admiring its steps, temples, sanctuaries and terraces. There is still no known explanation as to how the Incas could move 20-ton stones to the top of Machu Picchu, a mystery that makes this a uniquely spiritual and beautiful site. Upon arrival, you will participate in a guided tour of the Citadel, visiting the Main Plaza, the Circular Tower, the sacred sun dial (the most important preserved Intihuatana), the Royal Quarters, the Temple of the Three Windows and various burial grounds. After the tour, you will have time to stroll around the Archaeological Site at your own Return to Aguas Calientes town for lunch. In the afternoon return to Cusco by train.
Meals: Breakfast and lunch
CuscoAfter a delicious breakfast, we visit some of the fascinating attractions that the city of Cusco has to offer. Visit Cusco's Spanish colonial monuments (including the Main Square) and cathedral, both rich in historical importance and visually striking. Our tour then takes us to the Convent and Church of Santo Domingo, which the Spanish constructed on top of the ancient Incan temple of Koricancha—fabled to have golden walls. After this "golden" visit we explore the surrounding ruins of Cusco, including Sacsayhuamán. Sacsayhuamán puts Stonehenge to shame with its three overlapping platforms of boulders, each over 360m long. It is thought to be designed as a fortress of sorts. Even if that wasn't its original purpose, there's no denying that Sacsayhuamán was yet another great accomplishment among a long list of others for the Incans. In the afternoon, tempt your taste buds with a tour to a chocolate museum, where you can appreciate the different varieties of cacao and their transformation to delicious products. Learn how to prepare chocolate truffles or chocolate candies filled with flavored chocolate ganache. After visiting this delicious museum, return to hotel. At proper time transfer to local restaurant to enjoy a Dinner Show.
Meals: Breakfast and dinner show.
Cusco / LimaAt proper time transfer to Cusco airport in order to take the local flight back to Lima Arrival, reception and transfer to the hotel. In the late afternoon, we will pick you up to a panoramic visit to Lima and the Park of the Reserve to enter the Magic Water Tour, the newest entertainment icon in the city, comprised of 13 water fountains that provide a mixture of color, illusion and fantasy. Return to the hotel.
Lima / IcaAt proper time, transfer to the bus station to take the regular bus to Ica. The way takes 4 hours approximately. Arrival to Ica, reception and transfer to the select hotel. 15:00hrs Check in. At proper time, our guide will pick you up from your hotel to visit Huacachina Laggon, an oasis in the middle of the desert, holding a splendid landscape of palm trees, "huarangos" (acacias) and dunes, where sandboarding is practiced. In this place, you will take tour to Dune buggy and Sandboarding. Half the tour is riding in the dune buggy, up and down the dunes at fast speeds. And the other half of the tour is a chance to try the adventure sport of “sandboarding”. This is just like snowboarding, but instead of snow, you will be boarding on the fine-grained sand of the desert. If you are not athletically talented, no problem! Just lay on your stomach on the board, and go “sand sledding”. This is faster, lots of fun, and does not require any patience or ability.
Ica / Paracas / LimaEarly In the morning, we will transfer to Paracas in order to visit the Ballestas Islands. It is a vibrant and colorful wildlife sanctuary that is filled with wild birds and mammals, including sea lions, fur seals, and endangered Humboldt penguins. During this two hour boat tour you will come face-to-face with these animals in their natural habitation while you are onboard a speedboat. On rare occasions, it is even possible to see dolphins and whales. Obviously, this tour is a spectacular choice for animal lovers and birdwatchers. In addition to the animals named above, a wide range of seabirds also calls these rocky islands their home. You may see and hear pelicans, boobies, red-footed Guanay cormorants, and many other types of birds. During this tour, you can observe a mysterious geoglyph, similar to the Nazca Lines that was carved into the face of a cliff over 1,000 years ago. This symbol is called The Candelabra, and it remains the source of much speculation and debate. It likely was created by the Paracas tribe living in the coast at that time, for reasons unknown. At the end of the tour, transfer to the bus station to take the bus to Lima. The way takes 3 hours approximately. Arrive, reception and transfer to the hotel.
