    At 07:15hs please meet your Peru representative at the lobby for your private transfer to Lima Airport for your flight to Cusco. Upon arrival in Cusco you will be met after luggage collection by your Peru representative and transferred to the Hotel. The rest of the morning can be spent relaxing, acclimatizing to the high altitude and strolling around the fascinating streets by the hotel. At 14:30hs visit the magnificent Inca fortress of Sacsayhuaman, which overlooks the city of Cusco. You will be impressed by the beauty and monumental scale of this important Inca construction. The main ramparts consist of three massive parallel walls zigzagging together for 400m which were designed to make any attacker expose his flanks. Sacsayhuaman played an important part in the final defeat of the Inca Empire by the Spanish. Continue to Qenqo, one of the finest examples of artfully carved rock showing complex patterns of steps, seats, geometric reliefs and a puma design; the red fortress of Puca Pucara, and Tambomachay, commonly referred to as the Inca baths. The excellent quality of the stonework suggests that its use was restricted to the higher nobility, who maybe only used the baths on ceremonial occasions.

    Overnight: Cusco Hotel

    Meals: Breakfast

  27. 04 December 2017

    At 09:30hs walk through the colonial city of Cusco with its beautiful streets, the Cathedral on the Plaza de Armas and the Santo Domingo Temple & Koricancha, a Dominican Church and convent built on the foundations of the Koricancha, the Incas principal religious building dedicated to the worship of the sun. This afternoon we visit the Museum of Pre-Columbian Art. Striking works of ancient art, from unusual pottery to flamboyant gold, are superbly showcased in a contemporary display. Explore the streets of Cuzco, dominated by dramatic Inca walls constructed of mammoth granite blocks so expertly carved that they fit together without mortar. The Spaniards razed many Inca structures in the 1500s, but built others on top of the original foundations. However, colonial architecture has rarely stood the test of time as effectively as the Incas’ bold work, which was designed to withstand the seismic shifts common in this part of Peru. Walk to San Blas district, one of the most traditional neighborhoods of Cuzco, and the most picturesque. Situated only two blocks away from the Plaza de Armas (the main square) and Palacio Nazarenas, the district’s narrow, winding streets and colonial-style houses lend it a particular charm. The area takes its name from the 16th-century church of San Blas. For centuries it has housed artisans and craftsmen skilled in metalwork, pottery, painting and carving. Today it is the venue for numerous crowd-pulling art displays and exhibitions, and vibrant bars and restaurants.

  28. 05 December 2017

    Starting at 09:30hs this morning, enjoy a full day tour of the Sacred Valley. (Approx 7hrs). The Sacred Valley of the Incas is as magical a place as its name suggests: a winding trail of lush, green slopes lining the Urubamba River. Not only do its fertile terraces support a rich variety of crops, but it is also the route down to the tropical jungle a source of yet more exotic produce. This makes its markets hugely colorful events. Fascinating architectural remains from various civilizations, including the Incas, dot the valley. Visit Chinchero, a small Andean Indian village high up on the windswept plains, 30km from Cuzco. Beautiful scenery stretches down towards the Sacred Valley and up to distant snow-capped peaks. We visit the textile workshop of Nilda Callañaupa, who will lead a relaxed master class on traditional weaving techniques and a discussion on the role of weaving in contemporary Andean culture. Continue to Hotel Rio Sagrado, set among the verdant fields and towering mountains of the Sacred Valley. Designed to resemble a traditional Andean village, it sits in flower-filled gardens that stretch down to the Urubamba River. We stop here for lunch, and enjoy dishes based on fresh produce from the surrounding farms. Before Lunch: Experience a “Payment to the Earth” Ceremony Payment or Offering to the Earth is an ancient, ancestral custom still performed by indigenous Andean cultures today. Led by a shaman, it consists of laying out small amounts of native Andean cereals, grains and fruits, along with coca leaves, as offerings. The ceremony ends with the ritual burning of the offerings so that they can return whence they came, rising into the sky while any remaining ashes are buried in the earth to complete the cycle. Some 60km north-west of Cusco in the Urubamba Valley lies Ollantaytambo, a great Inca fortress and town. One of the oldest continuously occupied settlements in the Americas; it is a superb surviving example of Inca town planning. It is formed of canchas (blocks), each bearing a stone doorway that leads into a central courtyard surrounded by houses. The magnificent fortress, whose construction to this day defies belief, is made up of 16 massive terraces, testimony to the longevity of Inca masonry. Climb the steep stone steps to admire at close quarters the imposing, mountaintop citadel. From here, the view down the valley is spectacular and you can also marvel at the huge, pink-granite monoliths that form the Temple of the Sun.Return to your hotel in Cuzco.
