Explore the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu, Immerse yourself in the culture of Cuzco, Experience traditional Andean life in the Sacred Valley

Tour description provided by Intrepid

Discover South America’s ancient ruins, explore colonial sites and wander through vibrant markets to get a real taste of Andean village life in the Sacred Valley. Take a winding train journey through the steep Urumbamba Valley to Aguas Calientes, the gateway to Peru’s most famous site: the ancient ‘Lost City’ of Machu Picchu. It is a truly extraordinary destination and has to be seen to be believed.


Day 1 Sacred Valley/Aguas Calientes
Cuzco is the gateway to Machu Picchu and a city with majestic architecture, impressive ruins, a lively town centre and cultural significance around every cobblestone corner. The Sacred Valley was once the heartland of the Inca Empire and now contains picturesque villages and impressive archeological sites. Sitting at the base of Machu Picchu in a picturesque valley, Aguas Calientes takes its name from the numerous hot springs that are dotted throughout the area.
Day 2 Machu Picchu/Cuzco
Built sometime in the 15th century and rediscovered in 1911, the staggering ruins of Machu Picchu were thought to be an estate for the Incan emperor, Pachacuti. A World Heritage site set among red-green hills with ruins scattered close by, Cuzco is impressive in every way - be it history, culture, nightlife or architecture.
