Day One :CUSCO - KM 104 - INCA TRAIL - AGUAS CALIENTES

inca trail tours Your adventure will begin bright and early with a private transfer to the town of Ollantaytambo at 4:30 am, the gateway to the Inca trail. From here, you will take the train to the trek starting point at Km 104 at 6:40 am. The train journey is quite a treat in itself: you will travel in a beautiful old-fashioned locomotive featuring  great windows, so that you can enjoy spectacular views of the snow-capped mountains and traditional Andean villages as the train winds its way though the Sacred Valley towards the “Ceja de Selva” (edge of the jungle) and the Urubamba river.   Upon arriving at Km 104, you’ll check in at the trail control point and set off on your hike! Shortly after crossing the Urubamba river, you’ll arrive at your first archaeological site: the fascinating ruin of Chachabamba, located at 2050m above sea level. The fine architectural style of the site suggests that Chachabamba was once a sacred centre, possibly dedicated to water.   Next, the you will climb slowly through the cloud forest for about three hours until you reach your next archaeological site (and lunch spot!): the beautiful ruin of Wiñaywayna, located at 2650m above sea level. This imposing site is structured around steep terraces laid out in graceful curves, and commands one of the most spectacular views in the Sacred Valley.   After lunch, you will continue your hike to the Intipuku (Sun Gate), the official end to the Inca trail. Walking through the Sun Gate is the stuff of daydreams: it is from here that you will catch your first glimpse of the awe-inspiring citadel of Machu Picchu, one of the most famous archaeological sites in the world and a bucket-list destination for many travellers. Machu Picchu’s setting is no less breathtaking than the city itself: surrounded by forested mountains clothed in wispy clouds, the valley has a truly magical air.   You’ll descend for another thirty minutes towards the city, at which point you’ll have the opportunity to take those all-important photos! You’ll then take the bus to the town of Aguas Calientes, where you can check into your hotel, have a hearty dinner and maybe even take a restorative dip in the town’s eponymous hot springs.

Day Two : MACHU PICCHU – OLLANTAYTAMBO – CUSCO

Inca trail in 2 days

You’ll begin the day with an early breakfast, so that you can catch the first bus to Machu Picchu and beat the crowds to enjoy the mysterious, ruined city at its best. Wander through the magnificently-preserved ruins, and discover the city with your expert guide: how it was lost for centuries, only to be rediscovered by Hiram Bingham; how the buildings were constructed in perfect harmony with the surrounding mountains; how the beautiful architecture blends aesthetic and utility. After your tour, you’ll have some time to visit the city at your own pace, contemplating the magnificent, ruined buildings and admiring the breathtaking views of the Sacred Valley. In the afternoon, you'll take the bus back to Aguas Calientes and catch the train to Ollantaytambo, with your head and camera full of lifelong memories of the awe-inspiring wonder of the world, Machu Picchu. From Ollantaytambo, your private transportation will take you back to your hotel in Cusco.

    I would highly recommend using Pie Experiences if you are planning to visit Peru. From the planning phase through to the holiday itself, everything was done in a quick and professional manner. We were a group of 6 ranging from 70 years old down to 7 years old and everybody thoroughly enjoyed the experience with ‘Pie’. Logistically, organizing a trip to Machu Pichu and other sites is challenging and Pie experiences removed all of the stress and everything went like clockwork. Our tour guide in the sacred valley, the 1 day Inka trail and Machu Pichu was Henry and he was excellent. He is very knowledgeable on a range of topics, and kept both the adults and children entertained throughout.
    Peru is a spectacular country and using Pie Experiences to see the incredible Machu Pichu is something we will remember for the rest of our lives.

    We had a wonderful 2 day trek along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu! The logistics were seamless – thank you so much for the excellent communication. Juan was an excellent tour guide – and our lunch along the trail was both delicious and plentiful!
    We hope to return to Peru for the 4 day trek. We will certainly keep PIE experiences in mind.
    Thank you again!

    A Wonderful Way to Get Up and Close to Peru’s Best Ruins and Plants

    My boyfriend and I had booked the 2-day Inca Trail excursion in order to explore Peru in an immersive way, and we were NOT let down!! PIE was great at communicating with us before the trip, and made our experience seamless. All paperwork and tickets were ready upon our arrival each day, as well as food. We didn’t need to worry about a lot of the preparation work that goes into these types of excursions.

    Our wonderful fearless guide made all the difference for us, shout-out to Rodrigo! He was so knowledgeable and willing to share that knowledge with us, even teaching us some Quechua along the way. He made sure we were comfortable along the hikes, and made sure that we saw the prettiest flowers, coolest bugs, and got the best pictures of the trails along the way.

    Overall, this was a wonderful once-in-a-lifetime experience, and we felt safe and prepared throughout the whole journey.

    Thank you PIE Experiences!!
