SAS Travel Peru

Overview

If you are so unfortunate to have too little time to enjoy all that majestic Cusco has to offer then don`t despair, you can still see the best of it even if you only have 4 days. Of course we would say you need more time to enjoy and acclimatise but Machu Picchu is actually in the lower altitudes so by ensuring you rest for 2 full hours on arrival to Cusco you should be OK. Please ensure you can take one of the early flights on day 1. If you would like assistance with domestic flights, a quote or for us to arrange electronic tickets for you just let us know.

SAS Travel Peru

Is it for me?

This package has been very popular and often people use it as a jumping off point for discovering the rest of Peru. It has been created for people with a minimum of time but most people add a pre tour accommodation for the day before the tour to allow them time to recover from their journey to Peru. One extra night pre accomodation is $45.00 per person and of course the transfer from the airport is organized for this day so please consider this as a recommendation! If your interes in climbing to Huaynapicchu mountain we recommend to book in advance.

Difficulty

If you want something really unforgetable for the overnight in Machu Picchu town Aguas Calientes and have the money I would certainly suggest going for the upgrade option of five star Hotel Sumaq. US$ 220 upgrade per person based on 2 people but is a very special offer as the hotel is actually valued at US$ 600 for a room for 2 people.

if you would like this upgrade please quote it in your reservation and remember it is only until Sept 1st

Sacred, secret and mysterious citadel from the time of Pachacutec Inca Yupanqui (IX-Inca`s Dinasty) emperor, his presumed constructor. Then apparently its existence was even well-known only by the authorities and the priests of the Tawantinsuyo “The four lands of the empire”. Machupicchu prodigy of architecture of aesthetic recklessness and by the magestic and harmony of its forms, by the impeccable organization of its terraces, stairs, buildings, patios, passages that are set up in this nest of condors, surrounded by mountains, between the mountain range and the forest like but the extraordinary constructive feat of the pre-Hispanic man. (Pack Lunch is provided by Viajeros Hostal).
