Know More about this tour

Day 1: Meet our guide between 7:35 to 7:45amin the lobby of your Cusco hotel and travel through the mountains tothe Sacred valley of the Incas. Relax and take in the spectacular views along the drive, includingthe World Heritage-listed Saqsaywaman citadel and Tambomachay, a historic series of aqueducts, canals, and waterfalls. The winding road descends 1,500 feet (457 meters) and travels alongside the sacred Urubamba River.

Arrive at the village of Pisac, where you can visit the lively traditional market and perhaps pick up some souvenirs. Then continue toPisac's Incan ruins, which lie atop a hill with stunning views over the valley. Stroll around the ancient temples, altars, baths, water fountains, and marvel at the inti watana, a volcanic outcrop carved known as a "hitching post for the sun."

Climb back into your vehicle for the 40-minute journey to Urubamba, where you can enjoy a buffet lunch (own expense) before continuing on to the town of Ollantaytambo, another Inca archaeological site. Stroll around the temples, terraces, and storehouses under the watchful gaze of the Inca god Wiracocha, whose image is carved into Pinkuylluna Mountain overlooking Ollantaytambo. Later, board the train to Aguas Calientes, or Machu picchu Town. On arrival, you will be collected from the station and taken to your 3-star hotel, where your guide will meet you for a short briefing ahead of your tour of Machu Picchu the following day.

* Enjoy a private Cusco city tour (optional, if you chose it instead of Sacred valley tour on day 1) before taking the train to Aguas Calientes. Visit Saccsayhuaman, Qenqo, Pucapucara, Tambomachay, The Cathedral of Cusco, and the Koricacha. Later, transfer to Ollantaytambo and take the train to Aguas Calientes.

You can complete this trek on your own, without a guide, in around 2-hours.

Return to Machu Picchu and re-join your guide for a 2-hour tour of this 15th-century Inca citadel, visiting the main plaza, the circular tower, the sacred solar clock, the royal quarters, the Temple of Three Windows, and various cemeteries.

    Our tour guide, Michael, was amazing! Knowledgeable, thorough, well spoken, patient, willing to take pics and answer countless questions throughout the tour. He really made it so much more enjoyable to view the sites and experience all of the beautiful landscapes and animals along the way. He is also brilliant and his delivery of complex history with nuance & clarity is just aw inspiring. The only shortfall of the tour was the included hotel they put you in when you book through them. While the service was great, we were very uncomfortable in the accommodations. The hotel is probably a 1-2 star, and the quality of the room shows that. The room was moist and didn’t smell fresh, though you could tell that it had been cleaned. It was old and the bed was stiff and uncomfortable. The bathroom is old and there was no window or vent so the floor, walls and counter was just consistently covered with moisture.

    My partner and I hiked the Inca Trail with this company and our experience was awesome. A very good quality of customer service from the first up to the last day of our tour in Cusco.

    This was an incredible tour! Gary, our tour guide, was so knowledgeable about every stop and made sure to show us some really unique places. Everything about the schedule was really clear and easy to follow. Gary was incredibly at keeping us excited about the tour and was an incredible photographer. This whole experience was the best part of our trip and I highly recommend this tour to other travels!

    This tour is a wonderful experience. Fredi the tour coordinator was on top of things and he provided accurate information on pick up and drop off via WhatsApp. Our driver Juan drove very safely through the curvy mountain roads. Though we stopped multiple times to take pictures he got us to our train station on time. Gary was our tour guide and I recommend him highly. He knew about a number of hidden tombs and temples and told us a lot about the history of these places. Gary gave us a lot of information during the short hike up the hill in the Sacred Valley. The highlight of our tour was the Machu Picchu experience. Gary walked us to each monument and explained its significance. Gary is also an expert photographer. He knows the best shooting spots and camera angles. I rate the tour and Gary five stars. My recommendation to the company is to include the price of admission to the Sacred Valley into the total price.

    Fredi, the operator, was easy to communicate with via WhatsApp. Michael, our guide, is so passionate about his ancestors. His personal connections with the people at every stop made things smooth and fun. Without his guidance, Machupicchu and the others ruins would have been just another stack of rocks. Instead, it was unforgettable. The train was a pleasure. Finally, Juan, our driver, took great car with his driving to comfort our family members with high altitude problems. The whole family, including the 3 teenagers, had an amazing time.

    Superb tour with an excellent tour leader. Sacred Valley has wonderful stops and visits to local cultural spots. Machu Picchu was wonderful, too. The tour leader has so much knowledge and shared his culture with us. Thank you, Gary.

    We had an amazing time with my family in the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu with Terra Quechua Peru, Cesar was an incredible tour guide who took an incredible amount of time and attention to share with us the history, culture and local people. Cesar was incredibly knowledgeable and was able to share with us much more than promised. In addition, the accommodations, transportation and train were very comfortable and the organizers catered to our needs. I felt like I was at home. I can highly recommend everyone to do the tours in Cusco with TERRA QUECHUA ! Everything was perfectly organized and our guide Alberto was very, very good! We learned a lot! Thank you!

    A wonderful experience led by our tour guide Gary and our driver Ramon. Gary was friendly, knowledgeable and very patient. Gary took his time to explain and answer questions that we had while showing us ruins and details at numerous different stops of the Incas. He gave us spots to take the perfect picture and helped take our group photos. He gave us specific times to meet and an alternate plan in case we ran overtime while at Machu Picchu to ensure we made our train ride back. We were very fortunate to have him. Ramon was a very smooth driver to and from the hotel/train station. It all began with Fredi coordinating the tour, addressing questions and making sure we were prepared for the 2 day journey. I would not hesitate to hire this caring company if we were to visit Machu Picchu again. Thank you again Machu Picchu Latin America for the wonderful experience!

    Bernardo was a great tour guide! I really enjoyed all the stops and learning the history. There were some issues that came up due to protests and Bernardo did a great job of keeping us safe and informed. Would highly recommend him as a guide!

  • 10-Dec-2022

    So glad we booked this tour! Our guide Bernardo was extremely knowledgable. He taught us so much about the Incan and Andean culture and history. It was an easy, comfortable, and unforgettable trip. Truly a fantastic experience, highly recommend!
