SAS Travel Peru

Overview

A perfect balance of professional guides to lead you through the mysteries held in these polished stones and ornate structures built by a people of incredible wisdom and fascinating organisation and then enough free time for you to adventure on a hike within Machupicchu or just meditate in its surrounds ....this is for everyone!

Is it for me?

This tour is probably the most popular way to combine these 2 tours to utilise the interesting facts about the culture and history of the Sacred Valley as an introduction and backdrop to the wonder of Machupicchu. Making the best use of your time to reduce backtracking and especially as until July there is no train track between Cusco and Ollantaytambo you need to get to Ollantaytambo to take the train to Aguas Calientes so it is not only your best option but one of your few!

SAS Travel Peru

Difficulty

Our tours at Machupicchu starts very early to avoid the crowds and before big groups arrives to the Park, personalized service (8-16 person approx), a great small group shared experience !! Other tour groups in Machupicchu are with 20-25 person.
