Today we will explore the Sacred Valley of the Incas. This fertile river valley was home to many important sites for the Incas, both strategic and religious. The first stop is the village of Pisac, with its famous artisanal market and Inca Ruins. There is free time to wander the colourful market stalls before heading uphill to the Pisac, Intihuatana, Q’allaqasa and Kinchiracay ruins. Enjoy a fine buffet lunch at a restaurant overlooking the Valley.
Continue your journey along the River Urubamba, to Ollantaytambo. The town, which is dominated by a giant Inca fortress, is perhaps the best surviving example of Inca town planning and was the scene of a rare Inca victory over the invading Spanish.
At the end of the tour, transfer to Ollantaytambo train station to board the train from Ollantaytambo in the Sacred Valley to Aguas Calientes (town located at the bottom of Machu Picchu)
Travel from Ollantaytambo to Machu Picchu in this comfortable train, and let your feet have rest. Enjoy an authentic Andean experience, while relaxing in modern and comfortable interior design illuminated by Latin American music. Comfortable seats with tables in front to share the journey with friends and partake of a refreshing beverage. On-board services include a fun and refreshing selection of drinks prepared using Andean herbs and fruits, all of which boast revitalizing properties to fill you with energy and keep you ready for the next adventure waiting ahead of you.
