This non-trekking “soft adventure” is a perfect trip for those wanting to visit the most beautiful sites in Southern Peru within a limited time period. We begin in the mystical Andean city of Cusco, where Inca stone walls and temples line the narrow cobblestone streets. Once the heart of the Inca empire until overtaken by the Spanish Conquistadores, this eclectic city offers culture, history, and modern charm in a spectacular mountain setting.

Next, in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, we explore the ruins and traditional market of Pisac and the historical town of Ollantaytambo, the only Inca village that has been consistently inhabited until our times. The highpoint of our trip is a full-day visit to Machu Picchu, one of the world’s most beautiful and important archeological remainsz
