Itinerary

From the moment you arrive in Lima, a team member of Valencia Travel will be waiting for you at the airport and take you, on private transport, to your hotel. Then you will have all day to relax and enjoy the beauty of Lima and its surroundings.

Services Included:

Transport: Lima Airport – Hotel (2.5 hour approx.).

Local Tour Guide: English/Spanish

Overnight: Costa del Sol Wyndham Airport.

Accommodation in Standard Room with private bath.

At the moment you arrive in Cusco, a team member of Valencia travel will be waiting for you at the airport, then we will head to Chinchero, where we will spend about 30 minutes visiting a local factory where we can enjoy a textile exhibition by the locals and learn about their ancestral customs and their traditions.

The people of Chinchero are very connected to the old traditions, and many still dress in colorful clothing that combines indigenous and Spanish influences. We will also have wonderful views from Chinchero, since the town is surrounded by the beautiful snow-capped peaks of Chicón and Verónica.

After this visit will head to your hotel where you will have the rest of the time to relax.

Services Included:

Transport: Cusco Airport – Hotel Sacred Valley.

Local Tour Guide: English/Spanish

Overnight: Hotel San Agustin Urubamba: Accommodation in Standard room with private bath.

Now we will go to Urubamba, where we will make a stop of about 45 minutes for lunch (not included). After another 30 minutes of travel, we will arrive at the wonderful Inca town and the archaeological site of Ollantaytambo. Ollantaytambo was the royal estate of the Inca emperor Pachacuti, who conquered the region and built the town and a ceremonial center. We will spend about an hour exploring these magnificent ruins, visiting the amazing Temple of the Sun, and seeing huge blocks of rock that were perfectly carved and polished by Inca master stonemasons. Ollantaytambo is also a fine example of Inca agricultural construction and hydroengineering, with a complex series of stone water sources, canals, and agricultural terraces, the latter organized by elevation to create different microclimates for crop experimentation.

 

We will see the extent of the water system when we return to the town, where the fast-flowing water channels built by the Incas are still in use today. Walking towards the town square, we will have great views of the ruins above us, as well as the Inca granaries and warehouses built into the surrounding mountain slopes. Here we can also observe the daily life of Ollantaytambo, where many of the locals still wear traditional clothing.

 

After Ollantaytambo, head to the train station to board the train to Aguas Calientes (also known as Machu Picchu Pueblo). The train leaves at approximately 4:30 p.m. although the exact schedule changes from time to time. The 1.5-hour train ride is a memorable experience in itself, as we pass through river canyons and rolling hills, then your guide will pick you up from the train station around 18:10.

 

Aguas Calientes is the gateway to Machu Picchu, sitting in a deep gorge at the foot of the mountain on which Machu Picchu stands. It is a beautiful town that mixes traditional life with a huge tourist infrastructure, with a multitude of markets, souvenir shops, hotels, and restaurants. It’s also largely pedestrianized, making it a fun place to explore on foot. Aguas Calientes is surrounded by jungle-covered mountains and the Urubamba River flows through the city, sometimes roaring through the canyon.

 

It’s an early start the next day, so we’ll make sure you’re settled in your hotel and all set for the next day for your Machu Picchu visit.

We will then walk to the bus departure point for the short but zigzagging ascent up the road to Machu Picchu.

Then we will pass through the gates of the archaeological site of Machu Picchu. Here you will start your guided walking tour with an experienced and very knowledgeable guide. Our tour of Machu Picchu will last approximately two hours and will take you to see all the most famous and spectacular parts of the extensive archaeological complex. These include the House of the Guardian, Intihuatana, the Temple of the Sun, the Sacred Plaza, and other key locations.

What to bring?

What is the minimum age to travel with us?

Our younger travelers are not under 8 years old. This was thought for the comfort of our customers and guides and for the safety of younger kids since some trips could be too risky for small children and toddlers.

What's the currency here?

We use US American Dollars as currency in Ecuador.

What Travel Insurance do you recommend?

We recommend World Nomads Insurance since it has a coverage of USD $200 000

What’s the weather like?

Seasons in Ecuador have nothing to do with temperature – instead there is a dry season and a wet season. In Ecuador, the winter season is hot and wet, and the summer is dry and cold. Ecuador’s dry, summer season falls between May and December. January to April is Ecuador’s wet wintertime. There is not much of a transition between the seasons.

Most of Ecuador has mild temperatures year-round. In the highlands of the Andes, the temperatures are usually cooler and depend of the altitude mainly, the higher the colder, The average temperature in Quito is in the mid-60s Fahrenheit (17 – 18 degrees Celsius). But the average temperature by the snow-cover volcanos can be mid-50s Fahrenheit (10 – 13 degrees Celsius).

What Do I Do about drinking water?

The tap water in Ecuador is not always friendly on the stomach for those who haven’t been in Latin America for a while. There is purified water in each of the accommodation which you can use to fill up each morning, so be sure to pack a reusable water bottle or two. There will also be water in the transportation.

How much should I tip?

Tips are not included in the trip cost. These are entirely at your discretion but there is an expectation to tip for good service. Your guide will help with advice; however, we suggest the below as a guideline per person:

Guides: USD 10- USD 15 per day

Of course, you are free to tip more or less, and the amount should be reflective of your perception of service and quality - a tip is not compulsory and should only be given when you receive excellent service

Now we will go to Urubamba, where we will make a stop of about 45 minutes for lunch (not included). After another 30 minutes of travel, we will arrive at the wonderful Inca town and the archaeological site of Ollantaytambo. Ollantaytambo was the royal estate of the Inca emperor Pachacuti, who conquered the region and built the town and a ceremonial center. We will spend about an hour exploring these magnificent ruins, visiting the amazing Temple of the Sun, and seeing huge blocks of rock that were perfectly carved and polished by Inca master stonemasons. Ollantaytambo is also a fine example of Inca agricultural construction and hydroengineering, with a complex series of stone water sources, canals, and agricultural terraces, the latter organized by elevation to create different microclimates for crop experimentation.

 

We will see the extent of the water system when we return to the town, where the fast-flowing water channels built by the Incas are still in use today. Walking towards the town square, we will have great views of the ruins above us, as well as the Inca granaries and warehouses built into the surrounding mountain slopes. Here we can also observe the daily life of Ollantaytambo, where many of the locals still wear traditional clothing.

 

After Ollantaytambo, head to the train station to board the train to Aguas Calientes (also known as Machu Picchu Pueblo). The train leaves at approximately 4:30 p.m. although the exact schedule changes from time to time. The 1.5-hour train ride is a memorable experience in itself, as we pass through river canyons and rolling hills, then your guide will pick you up from the train station around 18:10.

 

Aguas Calientes is the gateway to Machu Picchu, sitting in a deep gorge at the foot of the mountain on which Machu Picchu stands. It is a beautiful town that mixes traditional life with a huge tourist infrastructure, with a multitude of markets, souvenir shops, hotels, and restaurants. It’s also largely pedestrianized, making it a fun place to explore on foot. Aguas Calientes is surrounded by jungle-covered mountains and the Urubamba River flows through the city, sometimes roaring through the canyon.

 

It’s an early start the next day, so we’ll make sure you’re settled in your hotel and all set for the next day for your Machu Picchu visit.
