Day 1: Cusco – Písac – Ollantaytambo – Aguas Calientes 

We will be looking for you in the morning to begin our trip in a vehicle towards the north of Cusco. There will be a stop in a viewpoint to have our first view of the Sacred Valley, with and explanation in charge of the tour guide. Then, we will reach Písac, where we will visit the archaeological site with terraces used by the quechuas for the cultivation of products. We will reach and 3400 m altitude, even 3500 m if we have the energy to traverse the highest part. Subsequently, we will go back to the town where we will be able to visit the craftwork market. After that, we will take our transportation to follow the road towards Ollantaytambo, skirting the Urubamba River, to visit the terraces of that place and the Temple of the Sun ruins, besides having a privileged view of the surrounding valleys. At the end of the day, we will take the train to Aguas Calientes, where we will spend the night in a hostel.

Day 2: Aguas Calientes – Machu Picchu – Cusco

We will get up very early in the morning to take the bus, and make a 25 minutes ride from Aguas Calientes to Machu Picchu citadel. Here, we will have a 1 and a half hours guided tour, during which we will receive information about the place's history, from its construction towards the time it was rediscovered by Hiram Bingham. Then, we will say goodbye to the guide and the group to traverse the citadel on our own with enough time to get to know the constructions that we could not see with the guide, and climb one of the mountains, Machu Picchu Mountain or Huayna Picchu, if you included it in your ticket. After this experience, we will go back to Aguas Calientes to be at the train station half an hour before the programmed departure in your ticket. We will get to Ollantaytambo, from where we will take our transportation to Cusco's downtown.
