Day One: Wander the Sacred Valley and Pisac

The Sacred Valley tour begins as you’re collected by your guide at your accommodation in Cusco. Let the excitement build as you journey into the Sacred Valley of the Incas, winding through mountains that form one of the most spiritual landscapes on the planet. Be thrilled by the twists and turns of the country roads as you approach Pisac, a town that boasts sumptuous organic food, a colourful artisan market and some of the finest panoramic views of the valley. Peruse the market with its abundance of hand made crafts and clothes, before continuing along the winding Vilcanota River, passing by charming small towns en route to Urubamba. You will notice the fields of giant white Inca corn, so symbolic and important for dishes throughout Peru. Stopping in Urubamba for lunch, you may even be able to savour some of the fresh corn growing in the fields around you. Enjoy the taste of traditional Peruvian cuisine before stepping back in time to discover the stunning terraced ruins of Ollantaytambo. As you walk around the massive stone constructions, find yourself marvelling at the precision of the ancient craftsmanship. The town’s significance to the Inca Empire is vastly important, its rich culture seeps in from the walls that surround it. Your day in the Sacred Valley will come to an end as your guide directs you to the train station. Here you will ride the 2 hour journey to Aguas Calientes, where you will be met and escorted to your new accomodation.

Day Two: Exploring Machu Picchu

  Rise and prepare for the incredible final journey to Machu Picchu. An early bus is essential to make sure you’re able to witness the sunrise over the ancient ruins, an experience that truly holds once in a lifetime status. Once at the site, you’ll discover more about what surrounds you as your expert guide will share the rich history of one of the new seven wonders of the world. Wander through magnificently preserved ruins and contemplate the thoughts of Hiram Bingham upon first discovering the site. Let the mystical energy of the sacred valley fill you as you walk with your head literally in the clouds. No tour of Machu Picchu is complete without the Kodak moments. Find yourself a good spot and absorb everything around you, before capturing that important snap with one of Peru’s national llamas. Trekking to Wayna Picchu is something you may have your sights on. The lesser known peak that appears behind Machu Picchu will reward you with an entirely different viewpoint of the site. This optional experience can be arranged with your guide before booking Machu Picchu for an extra cost.

    Dear Frederic and Katherine, hope all is going well with you .

    The trip you arranged for us and tour of Lima was fabulous and all the guides and drivers great. The hotel was outstanding. Thank you Katherine for making my wife feel better.

    There were several fellow shipmates that also had the same trip, but not as good as ours. I believe there is a big market for cruise ship passengers based on response we got about our trip. If there is anyway to provide a reference please let me know.

    Traveling in from Chile, we had a bunch of coordination questions that we had to work through in order to make our trip possible. Katherine of Pie Experiences was AMAZING in her diligent followup and attention to detail. She gave us great advice on how to accomplish all we were looking to do in Cusco as well as give valuable Bus and flight information. She also made it possible for us to do the Huayna Picchu tour (only 400 people a day) by hustling to get the proper tickets which was an epic experience!! Pisac and Ollantaytambo were gorgeous as well. I can’t say enough about the Inca Ruins! Thank you so much for your help in making Cusco and Machupicchu a trip we will never forget!
