After a short flight we arrive in Cuzco and tour the city. You will see a series of Inca ruins in the Capital of the Inca Empire including the Temple of the Sun, the Inca Fountains and the Sacsahuaman Fortress. A breathtaking train ride through the Sacred Valley will take you to the famous “lost city,” Machu Picchu with a full day tour of the site with a stay in the nearby village of Aguas Calientes.

This tour includes international airfare from Miami (US), on non-holiday dates. You do not need to fly via Miami; Kontiki will fly you the most direct way to your city of destination. Depending on your travel dates and proximity of travel, we will quote you the most economical surcharge from your city or country of origin.

Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Flight to Lima. Upon arrival, you will be met by our guide and escorted to the hotel near the airport.

Day 2: Flight to Cuzco. Upon arrival in Cuzco, transfer to your hotel. Afternoon city tour of Cuzco, visit the Korikancha Temple or Temple of the Sun. Visits to the Cathedral and its Art Museum, the artisans’ quarter of San Blas and San Blas church are also available. After your visits, you’ll continue to the nearby water shrine of Tambomachay (the Inca Fountains), Puca Pucara (the Red Fortress), the amphitheater of Kenko and finally the Sacsahuaman Fortress. Return to your hotel.

Note: Because of the altitude in Cuzco, we recommend that this tour be done privately at your own pace, at an additional cost of $28 per person, based on two people.

Day 3: Morning transfer to the train station. The train takes us through the Sacred Valley of the Incas up to the town of Aguas Calientes. From here, we will board a bus to Machu Picchu. We will then have a guided tour of the ruins. Machu Picchu, the Lost City of the Incas, was a flourishing ceremonial and agricultural site, probably the gateway to the jungle marshes of the Inca Empire.

The central buildings were erected with the polished stone works of the Cuzco Imperial style, though the site was probably occupied well before the Incas started their expansion. It was associated with the earth cult revolving around the coca leaf, which was a privilege of the Inca royal family and priests. You will have time to enjoy a light lunch or snack and return to your hotel at your leisure. In the evening, we will enjoy a wonderful dinner at the hotel or in Aguas Calientes.

Day 4: Day at leisure. You may choose to return to Machu Picchu, hike Huayna Picchu or relax in the village of Aguas Calientes and its hot springs. In the afternoon, we will board the train to return to Cuzco. Upon arrival, transfer to your hotel.

Day 5: Transfer to the airport to take the flight to Lima and connect with your flight back home.
