Is it for me?

Many people have expressed the desire to have Day 1 just to rest and acclimatise especially those who have flights that arrive later to Cusco and so the option to have Day 1 as just arrive, rest and explore the cultural treasures nearby in the main plaza and then on day 2 have the City tour has become very popular.
Then day 3 and 4 is the combined Sacred Valley Tour with Classic Train tour to Machu Picchu. ie sacred valley with overnight in Aguas Calientes ( Machu Picchu town) to allow early visit and full day in Machu Picchu before afternoon return and arrival to Cusco around 8.30pm on day 4.
With the charms of 3 nights in the Marqueses hotel it is a perfect way to see Cusco as you are in the safe tourist district and any spare time you have on day 1 or 5 finds you in the midst of the most beautiful combination of Inca and Colonial architecture to souvenir shop or add some amazing photos to your collection.
