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 half day city tour. The second day features all the best of the picturesque Sacred Valley. We will visit Saqsayhuaman, Tambomachay, Pisaq and Ollantaytambo. The following day we will embark on an unforgettable 7-9 hour hike on the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. This is a level two guided hike ,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. You can opt out of this excursion and take the train to Aguas Calientes while others hike the trail. If you choose not to hike the trail your price will $130 less the shared room price of $980 ($850 for shared room) Please let me know at the time of booking if you prefer not to hike the Inca Trail.
