Day 2 Cuzco - Sacred Valley - Cuzco

market at Pisac. The local merchants offer for sale all sorts of handicrafts, textiles and
ceramic goods, plates, ashtrays, necklaces and replicas of pre-Hispanic pottery. There are

Day 3 Cuzco - Machu Picchu

Early morning transfer (around 5.45am) to the railway station to board the train for a 3½
hour scenic train journey through the Urubamba Valley to Machu Picchu (2,280m), the
legendary lost city of the Incas. For centuries Machu Picchu was buried in jungle until the
American historian Hiram Bingham stumbled upon it almost by accident in 1911.
Although little is still known about the ‘lost city of the Incas’ it is obvious, by the quality
of the stonework and the abundance of ornamental sites, that Machu Picchu must have
been an important ceremonial centre. After a guided tour and a delicious lunch you are
free to explore the ruins on your own. Overnight in Aguas Calientes. [BL]

Day 4 Machu Picchu - Cuzco

Spend the morning at your leisure - we highly recommend that you watch the sunrise
over the ruins. Departure from the train station at Aguas Calientes at 3.30pm. After your
arrival in Cuzco at 7.30pm, transfer to your hotel. [B]
Day 5 Cuzco

The tour concludes after breakfast with a departure transfer. [B]
