01 Day  – Lima.

After your arrival at Lima airport we will transfer you to your chosen hotel in the Miraflores area of the city. Enjoy the rest of the day as free time to wander the parks and browse the shops.

Day 2 – Lima City Tour.

Today you will be collected from your hotel for full or half-day tour of colonial and modern Lima, visiting the Lima cathedral and the church and convent of San Francisco among other places of interest. After lunch, which we can arrange for you if you wish, you could visit a museum of your choice, such as the excellent Larco Herrera, the Gold Museum or the National Museum.

The evening could continue with a visit to the spectacular fountain park in the center of Lima. It can be a very full day of sightseeing in this crazy but historic metropolis if you wish, we custom design everything to your wishes. After this you will be worn out and we recommend recovering at a dinner / show at one of the restaurants, where you will hear traditional music and see dances from all over Peru.

Day 3 – Cusco City Tour.

This morning you will be transferred to Lima airport for your short flight (1 hour) to Cusco. Upon arrival in Cusco we will meet you and transfer you to you chosen hotel. In the afternoon we will pick you up from your hotel and we will start by visiting Cusco Cathedral which is one of the finest Colonial Cathedrals in the Latinamerica. Building has started in 1560 and was completed in 1664. More than 90 years of sacrifice and effort Situated on the Plaza de Armas, the Cathedral owes many treasures , history and mysteries.

Finally you visit Qoricancha from the Quechua word Qori Qancha meaning (‘Temple of the Sun’), one of the most important temples of the Inca Empire, it was built to the Sun the father of the INCAS in the 17th century when Spanish arrived every temple was destroyed to the ground but QORICANCHA has survived and still stands to the eye of the world on the side of Qoricancha you will see a catholic church of Santo Domingo which covers all the Qoricancha construction.

Today is a great day a fantastic sunrise clear and fresh weather we recommend to start with a cup of coca leaves tea as you will get more energy, your expert guide will tell you all about the sites and start to explain the history of the Incas and their great empire. Driving to Tambomachay. Situated at 3.700 m of sea level a Quechua word ( Tampu machay ) the place where people can rest a short period of time, it could also be the bath of the Ñusta ( the Inca princess) it is also believed the sanctuary to the cult of water. Next stop will be Puka Pukara Quechua word ( red fortress).

This is an Inca archaeological site it was a military and administrative site it was built to control, provide security and defend the Cusco city, as well as the control of the route to Calca that led to the sacred valley and Machu-picchu. The route then goes to the carved rocks of the Temple of the Moon and through the maze of rocks and tunnels of the Temple of the Monkey before arriving at Qenqo, is believed to be a multifunctional religious site it was also a place of Andean worldview where nature and the space converges this is also astrological observatory commissioned by people specifically looking for the seasons the wise INKAS, this archaeological site is unique here the carving of many animals can be seen in high relief they were considered secondary gods in the time of the Incas, and consists of rests formed by rocks with stairs in a zigzag, and a main building similar to a circular amphitheatre where 19 window sills are located as a way of seats. You then move onto one of the most important Inca sites in South America, the enormous fortress of Sacsayhuaman.

Scene of epic battles between Conquistadores and Incas, brave inka warriors protecting the citadel against the Spaniards, an ancient Inca story of Captain Cahuide he remained more than three days fighting and he had killed to one of the pizarro brothers, after having been alone and no one else around, Cahuide bravely threw himself from one of the towers to avoid being killed by the hands of the Spaniards, this cannot fail to impress.

While the high towers that once dominated the skyline were long since razed to the ground, the sheer scale of the zigzag stone walls is a sight to behold. Its construction took over seven decades and required the work of approximately 20,000 men. The stone was dragged from 20 miles away and still today we are not quite sure how they moved the huge megaliths into place. Some of its external walls exceed 30 feet in height and the largest stone weighs over 350 tonnes. From Sacsayhuaman we will head down to Cusco leaving you some time to wander these ancient streets, explore some more of the sites or just sit in a café on the Plaza de Armas and watch the world goes by.

Day 4 – The Sacred Valley Tour.

After pick-up from your hotel today you will enjoy a full-day Sacred Valley tour, we will be visiting the Inca ruins of Pisac , the market at Pisac, a great place to buy souvenirs and then drive through the valley to the lovely Inca site and village at Ollantaytambo. You will have an English-speaking guide all day and a great buffet lunch included in the sunny valley. You will then spend the night in to take advantage of a change of scene, more oxygen (as you are 800 meters lower), and a shorter journey tomorrow on the train to Machu Picchu.

Day 5 – Machu Picchu Tour.

The advantage you have is that you have stayed in Aguas Calientes overnight and therefore don ́t have to get up as early as you would in Cusco to catch the train. A transfer will pick you up from your hotel and take you to the station or if you are staying in one of the hotels really close to, or in the station itself, you can walk there. After being met in the bus by your guide you will start the tour earlier than the others who are still coming from Cuzco after we finish the tour in Machu Picchu we will get back to Ollantaytambo and drive to cuzco to spend the night.

Day 6 – Cusco.

Day 7 – Sightseeing Train to Puno.

Today you will be transferred to the bus station for your full day trip to Puno. During the comfortable 9 hour journey to Puno there will be several interesting guided visits and a buffet lunch. Its not just transport, you will see and learn a lot along the way. You could also choose to upgrade your Peru tour to use the luxury Andean Explorer train to Lake Titicaca. This is a superb 10 hour train journey which takes you across the spectacular Peruvian Altiplano in great comfort. Whichever service you use, upon arrival in Puno we will transfer you to your chosen hotel which could be the moderately priced Casona Plaza or Casa Andina Classic, or the more luxurious Libertador or Casa Andina Private Collection.

Day 8 – Lake Titicaca Tour.

Today you will enjoy a full-day visit to the strange Uros Islands and the large island of Taquile on the highest commercially navigable lake in the world, Lake Titicaca. This lake is the fabled birthplace of the Inca nation, from where its founders Mama Ocllo and Manco Capac traveled to Cusco to establish the capital of the Empire. You will have a qualified English guide all day and lunch included on Taquile Island. Don’t miss the small details throughout the trip.

Day 9 – Puno to Lima.

Today we will take you with a private transfer and guide from Puno to Juliaca airport via the pre-Inca Sillustani funerary towers for your flight back to Lima. Sillustani is a spectacular site, very other-worldly, and is a great way to round off your time in the Peruvian highlands.
