DAY 4 Sacred Valley-Machu Picchu-Cusco

Depart for Ollanta where a Voyager Inca Rail train transports you to Aguas Calientes near Machu Picchu. From your seat, admire the passing Andean landscapes of snow-tipped peaks, winding rivers and rainforest before disembarking for a 25-minute coach trip to Machu Picchu. Out of all the places to visit in Peru, this mountaintop “Lost City of the Incas” is the jewel. Likely built in the 1450s by Inca emperor Pachacuti, the mist-shrouded citadel was abandoned within a century and covered by jungle. Take a guided tour of the ruins set against their spectacular backdrop, exploring highlights including the Main Square, Royal Quarters and Burial Grounds as you hear their history. After returning to Aguas Calientes, reboard the Voyager Inca train to Ollanta and transfer to your hotel in Cusco, the Incas’ former capital. Your hotel is the comfortable Sonesta Cusco and you have the option of upgrading to a spacious Executive Room for your stay.

Hear how Coricancha was reputedly coated in gold leaf and then visit colonial-era Cusco Cathedral. Admire its stunning gold decorations and frescoes and view its home—Cusco’s Main Square—before returning to your hotel for an evening free.

After seeing Chinchero, a typical high-altitude Andean town with mythical status as the birthplace of rainbows, you’ll visit Maras’ Inca salt pools and Moray’s circular terraces, believed to have been used by the Incas for crop-growing experiments. Finally, view Ollantaytambo’s ruins before scouring Pisac market for colorful alpaca-wool clothes, ceramics and other souvenirs.
