Overview

Sacred Valley with connection to Machu Picchu in 2 days

This package is a combination of the famous tour of the Sacred Valley and the classic train tour to Machu Picchu. We offer you great amounts of beauty and history over 2 days. It includes a full day tour in the Sacred Valley, a trip to Aguas Calientes on the beautiful Vistadome Train, a night of rest in a comfortable and pleasant hotel, and dinner at the best restaurant in Aguas Calientes. We’ll end with a visit to the fantastic citadel of Machu Picchu, where you’ll have the opportunity to climb the Huayna Picchu Mountain or Machu Picchu Mountain.

The Sacred Valley is an incomparably beautiful place with small towns and ancient archaeological sites in the midst of rugged mountains northeast of Cusco. This valley was of great value to the Incas due to its geographical location and good climate. To this day, it stands as one of the best places for corn production in Peru.

In the middle of the mountains runs the sacred river of Urubamba (also called Willkamayu or Vilcanota), the Inca cosmology’s main element. The Incas knew that this river was not only fully linked to the constellations and snow-capped peaks, but was also the reflection of the Milky Way.

On the second day, you will visit Machu Picchu, make your dreams come true, and enjoy this archaeological sanctuary to the fullest in a package that gives you, like no other tour, the most significant amount of time Machu Picchu.

Why Take the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu?

  • Machu Picchu was built by the Inca Pachacutec and his people around the year 1460.
  • After being forgotten for many years, in 1911, the American Hiram Bingham reached Machu Picchu on an expedition and spread the news worldwide.
  • Fell free to climb Huayna Picchu or the symbolic mountain of Machu Picchu, the highest behind the Incan city.
  • The Sacred Valley in Peru is home to ancient monuments and ruins dating back to the Incas’ days.
  • Pisac is one of the most amazing places in the Sacred Valley. In this archaeological complex, you will appreciate the beauty of the Inca architecture, the quality of its hydraulic engineering, and the impressive cultivation platforms.

Information Before Leaving To Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu

We want to make your trip to Peru as memorable and as easy as possible. In this section, you will find speedy answers to all those questions you had about Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu in one place. Please read the following information carefully – it will help you with any questions about our services.
Has another question that we haven’t answered here? Drop us a line, and we will get back to you asap!

Briefing or informative meeting

All information meetings are held in your hotel at 6:00 p.m., one night before the tour begins. If you cannot attend, you must coordinate another time at the Peru Hike offices. These meetings last approximately 30 to 45 minutes and there you will be given a small duffel bag, in which you’ll put all the belongings you intend to bring on the trek that won’t be in your day pack.

Payment of Trek Balance (in Cusco)

The trek has to be paid for in full by at least 7.30 pm two days before departure. For example, if your tour departs on a Wednesday, then you must come to our office before 7.30 pm on Monday.

It would be much appreciated if you pay the trek balance in cash US dollars or local currency. You can withdraw some money from several ATMs along Avenida Sol (either in US dollars or local Peruvian Soles). You can pay by credit card or PAYPAL online, but you will have to pay an 8% service charge, charged by VISA and PAYPAL. We do not accept bank checks or payment of the balance by traveler’s checks.

Storing your luggage at our Office.

Of course! During the travel, your main luggage can be stored at our office(you can organize briefing day or by email) or at your hotel, both free of charge.

Any equipment that you are not going to need on the trek can be stored safely in your hotel. Nearly every hotel will provide this service. Don’t leave items of value with your bags, put them in the hotel safe and obtain an itemized receipt (In the unlikely case of theft many insurance companies require that you have a copy of the receipt itemizing all the items). Best put items such as credit cards inside a sealed, signed envelope for extra peace of mind.

Pickups:

Peru Hike can pick you up from your hotel, as long as it’s in the Historic Center of Cusco. The pickup time will be coordinated with your guide in the briefing. The pickup time may vary between 30 and 45 minutes due to traffic. Cusco is a very old city, therefore, it has many narrow cobbled streets. Some hotels and Airbnbs may be located on streets without access to cars or on long, steep slopes, making it difficult to transport luggage. We strongly recommend that you book accommodation with good access.

Return to Cusco:

Returning from Machu Picchu requires quite a bit of logistics, but don’t worry. Everything is included in your tour!

  • In Machu Picchu you’ll board a bus that will take you for 25 minutes to the small city of Aguas Calientes. The buses are boarded according to your arrival.
  • In Aguas Calientes you’ll board a train to Ollantaytambo or Cusco. Your guide will give you the train tickets where the boarding time will be shown. Make sure you’re on the platform 30 minutes early. The train from Aguas Calientes to Ollantaytambo takes 2 hours.
  • Once you arrive at the station, our representative, identified with the Peru Hike clothing, will be waiting to transfer you to Plaza San Francisco, in Cusco. The trip from Ollantaytambo to Plaza San Francisco takes 2 hours.
  • In San Francisco, depending on your hotel’s location, we will take you to a smaller car from our company (Hyundai H1) to transfer you faster to your hotel in Cusco.

Group tours:

Group tours are made up of different types of people. Physical conditions and ages can vary. By agreeing to be part of a group tour, you also accept that some people may be faster or slower than you. Therefore, each person can go at their own pace on the route. It may be the case that a group wishes to modify the tour; however, it will be the guide who decides, after consulting with all the participants, if said modifications can be made.

Strikes and demonstrations:

Strikes and demonstrations are usually frequent in Peru and this may interrupt some of our tours. Roads can be blocked and train tracks can be taken over. However, we will try to keep your excursion as planned, even if it means leaving the night before the scheduled date. Under these circumstances, tours may also be cancelled. In case of changes or cancellations, all situations will be coordinated with you by our operations department. Your safety is our highest priority and our decisions will be made to protect it.

Lost objects:

You’re responsible for your objects during the tour. Please pay attention to where you leave your things and remember to take everything once you leave our trucks, tents, or restaurants.

very special mention for the guide michael flores, since a few months ago i made a trip to cusco to know the 7 wonder of the world that is macchu picchu and the truth is fascinating like the center of cusco which is the city and although Very apart from the tour, what fascinated me was the quality of human being that the tour company has, Michael really exceeded all expectations as a tour guide, highly recommended the tourism service.
