This is our premier non-trekking “soft-adventure” through the heartland of the Incas: Cusco, the Sacred Valley, and Machu Picchu. Our journey begins in Cusco, where we step back in time along the cobblestone streets of Inca stone walls, temples, and Spanish colonial architecture. This eclectic city offers culture, history, and modern charm in a spectacular mountain setting. Next, we travel into the stunningly beautiful Sacred Valley to visit the traditional Andean market of Pisac. We continue on to the fascinating town of Ollantaytambo, considered a living museum for its Inca dwellings and the people who still inhabit them. The highlight of our trip is, of course, the Machu Picchu Sanctuary, a wondrous archeological complex of Inca temples, palaces, shrines, plazas, and dwellings in a boundary region between the Andes and the Amazon rainforest.
