Machu Picchu

Featuring one day Inca Trail hike, Machu Picchu tour, Cusco city tour, Sacred Valley and Highland School donation.


Many people take in Machu Picchu by train but we will have the opportunity to enjoy a full day hike on the famous Inca Trail. The Peruvian government limits the number of people hiking this scenic trail to 500 a day. Your package includes a permit for a full day hike. The first day will be spent in Cusco, a UNESCO World Heritage city, where we will enjoy a 3 hour city tour.

The second day features all the best of the picturesque Sacred Valley. We will visit Saqsayhuaman, Tambomachay, Pisaq and Ollantaytambo.

On the third day we visit a traditional Andean community where locals teach us their traditions and costumes.

On the fourth day we will embark on an unforgettable 7-9 hour hike on the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. This is a level two 8 mile hike and we will have four experienced local guides leading our group. This is one of the highlights of the trip, and you can walk the trail at your own pace. If you suffer from knee pain, back pain or vertigo you may want to reconsider hiking the Inca Trail.

Those of you who wish to donate to the highland village school we will visit on the sixth day will receive a list of items the school needs. This is an active trip for fun minded people. If you enjoy laughing, dancing, exploring and adventure, then this trip is for you. Absolutely no drama allowed! Bring a family member or friend, but make sure they are fun!
