ITINERARY

DAY 01; Cusco – Chinchero – Moray – Maras – Ollantaytambo – Machu Picchu Village.

We will pass by your hotel at 07:30 am and travel for 45 minutes until you reach our first point of visit, the village of textile artisans of Chinchero, where we will pass through the open market of textiles, we will visit the colonial temple where the mass in Quechua is celebrated on Sundays and then we will continue our journey to the huge Inca terraces that were used for agriculture. After visiting Chinchero we will travel in our car for 30 more minutes until we reach the Salineras de Maras that today have more than 4 thousand little reservoirs where local people process salt for later commercialization. Something singular about this place is that in this process only women work since the men are dedicated to agriculture, we will walk through the salt mines and the guide will explain everything about this wonderful place. Once finished with our tour in Maras, we will travel for another 20 minutes with spectacular views of the snowy mountains of Chicón and Verónica until we reach Moray, considered today as an Inca agricultural laboratory where they adapted the products to different ecological levels and thus facilitate their consumption throughout the empire. Once we finish our tour to Moray we will travel for 30 minutes to Urubamba where we will have a delicious buffet lunch prepared with organic ingredients from the sacred valley.

After our lunch we will travel for 20 minutes to reach the Inca city of Ollantaytambo, we will make a tour of 1 hour and a half inside the Inca ruins where our guide will explain us about the history of its construction, function and learn how for the important decision taken by Manco Inca in this place, Machu Picchu was not found by the conquerors. At the end of our tour we will walk to the train station and travel for 1 hour and a half through a beautiful valley called Machu Picchu Canyon, while enjoying beautiful views of the snowy mountains that are changing to huge rocks covered with vegetation and different orchids, as well as wildlife. Once we arrive at Machu Picchu Pueblo our staff will be waiting for you to accompany you to your hotel.

DAY 02; Tour to Machu Picchu (World Wonder) and return Cusco.

This is one of the most important days of your stay in Cusco. Finally, we will visit the world wonder, the sacred city of the Incas, Unesco’s cultural and natural heritage; Machu Picchu. Our recommendation is to get up early to appreciate the sunrise in Machu Picchu (subject to weather conditions) and take the energies of this sacred place. Your guide will pass through the hotel and will go to the bus station, it will be a 25-minute trip to the entrance gate of Machu Picchu. Once there do not forget to use the toilet services for the last time since inside Machu Picchu there are no bathrooms. You will have a guided tour of approximately 3 hours visiting the temple of the sun, temple of the Pacha Mama, Inca house, chacana temple, the Intihuatana, the temple of the condor, etc. In our Tour to Machu Picchu, we made the most complete route so you do not miss any place, you will have time to take your pictures, enjoy beautiful views, etc.

In case we get space for this extra walk, your guide will show you the way you should take to make this hike. However, this has an additional cost of $. 35 Dollars per person.

Whatever the case may be, once you have finished your Machu Picchu Tour, you must go down to Machu Picchu Pueblo to enjoy a lunch (Not Included) before getting on your train that will depart at 2:30 pm on the way to Ollantaytambo, once you arrive there our staff will be waiting for you with your vehicle to transfer you to your hotel in Cusco or Sacred Valley.

TRAVEL INFO

Altitude sickness

As soon as the people reserve the trip to Peru, specifically to Cusco, they begin to wonder about altitude sickness. High altitudes contains less oxygen than at sea level and forces your body to work harder to get the oxygen it needs. For few days at high altitude your body adjusts to the least amount of oxygen in the air.

The first symptoms of altitude sickness may be; headache, fatigue, followed by loss of appetite, nausea or vomit, dizziness, trouble sleeping, difficulty breathing during exercise. If any of these effects worsen, contact our office and we will help you get to a doctor.

Most of the time, these symptoms will be mild. We always recommend easy activities and walk slowly, allowing your body to adapt. Drink plenty of fluids such as water or coca tea. Coca tea has been used since ancient times to help prevent altitude sickness. The leaves of the coca plant contain alkaloids that help carry oxygen to your blood, helping your body avoid the effects of altitude sickness. Avoid drinking a lot of alcohol and coffee because it will make you urinate more often and you will become dehydrated. Avoid smoking, Smoking makes it difficult for your body to get oxygen. Avoid sleeping pills. it can cause shallow breathing at night, which makes it difficult for your body to absorb oxygen while you sleep.

Many people prefer to visit the doctor to give them a treatment with pills even before traveling to avoid problems during their stay. Your doctor may prescribe medications, such as acetazolamide and dexamethasone, to help prevent altitude sickness. Start the medicine two days before reaching a high altitude. Continue taking it while you are at high altitude.

Our team is well trained on first aid assistance and specially on altitude problems, if you feel any of the altitude symptoms mentioned during your hike, please let your guide know so he or she will help you as soon as possible.

Weather

The weather in Cusco it’s unpredictable. In general, the dry season in Cusco is from April through October, but this does not prevent the rain from falling in June or the sun coming out in December, just be prepared for any weather. No matter which month you take the hike or excursion, or which tour you are on, make sure you have adequate clothing that includes a waterproof jacket, pants, poncho and waterproof gloves.

Also be prepared for 4 seasons in a day. Many of the excursions through the Andes involve many microclimates and you will have to be prepared for all seasons. The layers are always key because they are easy to adjust to different temperatures. And the nights will always be cold, so get ready with a warm jacket.

Arriving to Cusco

The airport in Cusco is currently quite small and only for domestic flights, so all international travelers by plane must disembark in Lima and go through Customs. Even if your flight to Cusco is the same day by the same airline, you must pick up your bags in Lima and then register them again.

The best way to get to Cusco is by air and there are several airline options. LATAM tends to be the most expensive, but it has more flight options. But you also have PERUVIAN, AVIANCA, STAR PERU, LC PERU to choose according to your preference. Expect flight delays or cancellations, due to the high altitude of Cusco, tends to be difficult to land so that on rainy days you can paralyze air traffic. Bus tours are always available and although the journey may be long, especially from Lima, Peru buses are well maintained and are comfortable. This option is recommended if you come from a city closer to Cusco like Puno or Arequipa. Buses from Lima will take around 20 hours to arrive to Cusco.

Travel insurance

To protect your travel investment, we recommend buying travel insurance. Getting travel insurance before leaving home is highly recommended and very easy. There are many insurance companies depending on your country of origin and at different prices according to your time of stay, take some time to review them and hire the one that best suits you. This is an excellent way to protect yourself while visiting Peru.

Community

At Peru Private Tours (PPT) we are proud of the work we do for our community. This is the main objective for our company. We are working directly with the villages to help them meet the needs of their families. We support the children of the villages by giving them school supplies, books and clothes.

We buy all our food from farmers and local markets and serve the freshest ingredients. We offer constant training for all our team: guides, porters, chefs and drivers. We are a family born in the Andes and we want to work with them and for them. That is why once a year we bring our porters and their families to Machu Picchu. We want our team to know the world wonder, since they work tirelessly at the doors of this place without ever visiting it and showing them this place is our greatest honor.

We perform periodic cleanings of the roads we use and always leave the attractions better than we have found. It is our objective to contribute with the preservation of our heritage and attractions for our children and your children, for that reason we are very respectful with the rules of visit to each place.

RECOMMENDATIONS

WHAT YOU SHOULD CARRY

  • PASSPORT OR IDENTITY DOCUMENT (VERY IMPORTANT) It must be the same one you sent us in your reservation and you will be asked almost anywhere.
  • Hat or Cap for the Sun: Very important, especially for the day of the Tour to Machu Picchu as there are no places to cover the sun.
  • Sunglasses: Highly recommended since Machu Picchu is built with white and gray granite stone that reflects the sun and makes the eyes tired.
  • Sunscreen: we highly recommend to use sunscreen every day during your stay in Cusco, even if it is not a sunny day.
  • Waterproof jacket or windbreaker (if it is much better light) it is very important to wear a windbreaker jacket because in our journey through the sacred valley it can rain or wind.
  • Bottle of water or CAMELBAK. We recommend doubling the amount of water you usually drink, since dehydration in a dry climate is much faster.
  • Lightweight pants for walking: Please try not to wear Jean pants since they can be a bit uncomfortable unless you are used to walking with it, the best and recommendable are, leggings or trekking pants.
  • Personal medication pills: Do not forget to take your personal medication that is very important.
  • Camera (optional): Do not forget to bring your camera because you will surely want to take pictures of everything you see on the tour, especially Machu Picchu.
  • Personal hygiene implements and / or others that you consider necessary.
  • Above all, a lot of desire to have fun and get to know the local culture.
