Overview

The majority of passengers choose the Day 1 tour visit of the Sacred Valley with the famous Pisaq Inca site and the typical Market where you have plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful products. Then on to Ollantaytambo Inca town (the living Inka village with so much character).
For those who are already doing this famous Sacred Valley tour on another day there is in this case the option to do an alternative Tour to Chincheros Inca town, Moray (Inka´s Farming Laboratory) and Maras Saltmines, then time to visit and explore Ollantaytambo ruins. This 2nd option has a supplemental cost though unless you form a group of 6 people. see more info below. Unless the Moray Maras tour option is specifically requested in the comments section you will be automatically confirmed with the Sacred Valley option. But if you prefer the Moray Maras tour option just let us know well in advance so we can form a group for your date and try to maintain the price.

Is it for me?

This tour is a combination of the famous Sacred Valley Tour and the Classic Train tour to Machupicchu plus Huayna Picchu, but with extra night in Aguas Calientes, gives you a full day in Machu Picchu to enjoy it from early morning to closing if you so wish! the morning train on the 3rd day allows you to enjoy all the travel moments in daylight which are spectacular so not to be missed!
Also This programe is more economical than the classic 2 day 1 night tour even though it includes 2 nights accommodation, because we use simple accommodation to enable travellers on lower budgets to also enjoy this tour but definitely recommend the upgrade accommodation options for those who would rather stay in nicer accommodation.
Huaynapicchu Ticket is included in this tour however for many high season dates June, July, Aug you need to book about 1-2 months in advance to guarantee the Huaynapicchu Ticket since there is limited availability.
