Meals: B & DDay 4 SACRED VALLEY (Breakfast & lunch)
After breakfast, your guide will be waiting for you and transfer you in your private car to the Inca site of Moray. This is a fascinating, unique ruin; a fabulous amphitheatre of terracing that was used as an agricultural experimental site by the Incas by taking advantage of the microclimates produced by the varying altitude to breed new varieties of their crops. From here we start our trek downhill to the village of Maras and the salt pans of Maras. The salt pans are an unforgettable site where the people from Maras have diverted a salt-laden spring coming out of the hillside, evaporating the water to collect salt, as their ancestors have done for centuries. We will walk among the salt pans, witnessing a scene largely unchanged from Inca times. From the salt pans we continue our trek to the bottom of the valley and enjoy a boxed lunch in the beautiful setting of the valley before returning to your hotel.
Meals: B & LDay 5 SACRED VALLEY - MACHU PICCHU (All meals)
After breakfast, we walk to the railway station close to the hotel for the boarding of the Luxury Hiram Bingham train to Aguas Calientes (not available on Sundays). Your luggage will be taken to your lodge in the Sacred Valley due to the minimal luggage policy onboard the train.
The train will depart at 10.30am for the 1 ½ hour journey and you will enjoy the company of fellow travellers and guides onboard this luxury train complete with 1920s styled Pullman carriages. Each carriage has been furnished in polished wood and brass with large comfortable armchairs.
The bar car is the perfect place to enjoy a cocktail accompanied by live Peruvian music. On the way to Machu Picchu, the bartender will show you how to make a traditional Pisco Sour. The observation car is furnished with large cushioned seats, making it the perfect place to sit, relax and watch the Peruvian landscape unfold as you gently ride towards Machu Picchu. A hearty brunch will be served on-board before you arrive to Aguas Calientes train station, gateway to the lost city of the Incas.
As you disembark, any luggage will be taken to your hotel whilst you take the short walk to the bus terminal where a private bus will be waiting for all Hiram Bingham passengers. The short ride up to Machu Picchu will meander through breath-taking mountain scenery up to the ancient Inca citadel.
Shortly after, your guides will again lead you on a private guided tour of Machu Picchu, the most spectacular ancient city in the world. Built by the Inca Pachacutec, and comprising stone blocks fitted with masterful precision, Machu Picchu harmoniously blends into the mountain landscape. There are many theories as to the origins behind Machu Picchu but three of the most popular ideas include a temple to the sun, a fortress against the jungle inhabitants or a sanctuary for the Incas. This fabulous city has houses, temples, warehouses, a large central square, all connected by narrow roads and steps, and is surrounded by terraces cut into the mountain side which were used for agriculture. Return back down to Aguas Calientes and to your wonderfully located residence, a thoughtfully designed villa located in the heart of a cloud forest, the Relais and Chateaux Inkaterra Villa. The villas comprise a private terrace and plunge pool, overlooking a lush garden with private entrance. You will register in the privacy of your villa and enjoy extended VIP treatment including 24 hour butler service. Each villa suite has an open wood-burning fireplace, plus sitting and dining areas. With tranquil views of the private garden, the expansive marble bathrooms offer indoor and open-air showers, a tub, and a separate commode area. Accommodation and dinner served in your villa or in the dining room.
Meals: B, L & DDay 6. MACHU PICCHU - SACRED VALLEY (All meals)

Return in style and enjoy cocktails onboard followed by a four course dinner. Arrival to the Sacred Valley where your short drive will take you to the Willka T'ika, a luxury garden retreat located in the heart of the Sacred Valley.
Created by Carol Cumes in 1994, it is fully respectful of Mother Earth, Pachamama, and consciously built in harmony with its natural environment by the owner & local native talent, who to this day continue as staff to nurture and care for its continued flourishing.
