DAY 4: URUBAMBA - MACHU PICCHU - CUSCO Tuesday December 25, 2019

A transportation service with a guide will pick you up from your hotel in Urubamba at the established time and will drive you to the Ollantaytambo train station. The guide will assist you at the station.

Board the Vistadome Train

Your tour to Machu Picchu begins with a train ride to Aguas Calientes in approximately two hours. This town is also known as "Machu Picchu Pueblo" and is the last stop before the entrance to the remains of the most important archaeological site in Peru. In Aguas Calientes you will find the railway station, a crafts market, restaurants and accommodation of different categories for those who prefer to spend the night at the foot of the mountain and climb it early. Finally, after a short transfer you will reach Machu Picchu, a masterpiece of engineering and architecture that is believed served as a sanctuary and retreat for the Inca Pachacutec (1438 - 1572). Machu Picchu, which means "Old Mountain", is considered a World Heritage by UNESCO and one of the new seven wonders of the world. Once in the citadel you may optionally also visit the Intipunku (Sun Gate), the Wayna Picchu (subject to space availability & not included ) and the Inca Bridge

Enjoy a delicious lunch at Cafe Inkaterra

DAY 5: CUSCO Wednesday December 26, 2019

Start your tour today by visiting Coricancha, also known as the "Temple of the Sun", which was built by the Inca ruler Pachacuti and, upon the arrival of the Spaniards, became the base for the construction of the Santo Domingo Convent. Here, during the Inca Empire, reverence was surrendered to the sun, and there was even time when the structure was covered in gold. Next, visit the Cathedral, the most imposing monument in Plaza de Armas square. The construction of the cathedral took almost 100 years to complete, beginning in the mid-16 th century. Hundreds of stones were extracted and transported from the Sacsayhuaman fortress under the command of the Ecclesiastical Council to use for the construction of the church. Continue your tour to the fortress of Sacsayhuaman, a magnificent building conceived and built by Inca ruler Pachacuti in the 15th century. The Sacsayhuaman complex was built with megalithic blocks, the transportation and erection of which continue to be a fascinating mystery. The Inti Raymi Sun Festival is reenacted here every year on 24 June during the winter solstice. Continue on to Quenqo, located only four kilometres from the city of Cusco. Quenqo is an archaeological complex of mainly religious use where it is believed agricultural rituals were performed. Finally, visit Puka Pukara, located seven kilometres from the city of Cusco. Puka Pukara, meaning "Red Fortress", was an architectural complex of alleged military use with multiple spaces, plazas, baths, aqueducts, walls and towers, and it is believed the entourage of the Inca ruler used the space while he rested in Tambomachay. Return to the hotel with the remainder of the day at leisure.

Enjoy lunch at Calle del Medio (Set Menu)

At proper time Transfer to the neighbourhood of San Blas, specifically to the house of Sabino, a talented Andean musician. He will welcome you and explain the history of the typical Andean instruments. You will be able to learn and play the drums, 'quenas' (Andean flutes), among others. Also, not only will you play the most representative Andean instrument, the zampoña (pan flute), but you will make one. Finally, you will play together like the local bands.

DAY 7: PUNO Friday December 28, 2019

You will be picked up from the port of Puno and taken to the floating islands of Uros. The Uros are an ancient culture that inhabits a series of artificial islands built on the basis of reeds growing in the lake itself. These are constructed by weaving reed in the areas where it grows thicker and thus forming a natural layer. On it they build their houses and cook outdoors in order to prevent fires. After an hour you will continue to the island of Taquile. In contrast to the other islands in the lake, where the people speak Aimara, here they speak Quechua. It was part of the Inca Empire and vestiges of that culture can still be seen in their buildings. However the Spanish also came here, forbade them from wearing their traditional costumes and forced them to use peasant dress. When you arrive you will be given a short description of the island and a tour round it before lunch. After lunch you will go to the harbour for the trip back to Puno.

"You can Om your way through Machu Picchu
Machu Picchu is known as one of the most spiritual lands in the world, so why not go all out and Om your way through its ruins? Amazing Peru offers a seven-day yoga tour where visitors travel from Lima to Cuzco and finally to Machu Picchu, where they stay in the famed sanctuary Lodge hotel right outside of the ruins. They participate in multiple meditation and yoga sessions throughout the trip, but the highlight is a private session smack-dab in the middle of the ruins. Now that is an Om experience worth waiting for."
