This is one of our most popular trips and a great way to discover the best of Peru, from the Urubamba Valley to Machu Picchu. In eight action-packed days you’ll stroll through the ancient back streets of Cusco and enjoy awe-inspiring hikes through fertile valleys and highland plateaus to Incan ruins and out-of-the-way villages. Our adventure hits a high point as we ride the picturesque train up the narrowing gorge of the Urubamba River, and spend a half day hiking up the classic Inca Trail to the legendary lost citadel and ethereal cloud forest of Machu Picchu. Drawing on over 40 years of experience in the region, we can be relied on for a knowledgeable, insightful journey that truly immerses you in the native culture, complemented by excellent regional food and the finest accommodations. Expert MTS leadership by a great crew of local guides makes this an adventure you won’t soon forget.

Day 1: Arrive in Lima and fly to Cusco

Your ultimate Peru adventure begins upon morning arrival in Lima, from where you catch a one-hour flight to Cusco, the ancient capital of the Inca Empire. Your trip leader meets you at the airport, and together we transfer to the luxurious JW Marriott El Convento Cusco hotel, located only a few blocks from the city’s main square.

In the afternoon, head out for a walking introduction to the illustrious history of the Inca civilization and its former capital. The Spanish conquistadores destroyed significant portions of the Inca civilization while leaving their mark on Cusco. Today the blend of Inca and Spanish cultures is still witnessed in its ornate cathedrals, adobe walls, carved balconies, hidden courtyards, and cobblestone streets, all of which add to the historic richness and memorable experience of the ancient city.

We begin at Coricancha, the most important temple (to the sun god, Inti) in the Inca Empire. Once the Spanish conquered Peru, the Dominican Order built a church over the Coricancha ruins—the Church of Santo Domingo still stands today. Next we visit Plaza de Armas, Cusco’s main colonial square, and its cathedral, built in 1560. Form here we walk to the neighborhood of San Blas, where Cusco’s finest artisans live and work.

Come evening, enjoy a group welcome toast with a lovely view of the city.

  • Accommodation:JW Marriott El Convento Cusco

Day 2: Visit ancient Inca ruins at Pisac and Sachsayhuamán

Today is full of wonder as we explore ancient Inca ruins and archaeological sites. First we tour the Sachsayhuamán complex, a masterpiece of Inca architecture where huge, mortarless stone blocks are placed mind-bogglingly perfectly. Next is the Kenko temple, dedicated to animal worship and known for its zigzag channels, and Puca Pucará, a hilltop site of military ruins made of large walls, terraces, and staircases. Last but not least is the ceremonial bath of Tambo Machay.

Then we’re off to the Urubamba Valley, otherwise known as the Sacred Valley of the Incas. At Awana Kancha, we learn about traditional Andean textiles and the natural process to obtain them using the same techniques ancient Peruvians have used for centuries. We continue on to Pisac, one of the largest fortress-city complexes in ancient America and a lovely, lively town. Its ruins extend from a fortress to a temple complex where we can see some of the finest Inca stonework in existence. Terraces extend up from the river perhaps 2,000 feet, and we descend through a network of stairs, walkways, tunnels, and temples and on down to the valley floor at 9,500 feet. We arrive in the town of Pisac and visit its colorful market. Lunch is at Wayra Restaurant, a rancho-style restaurant with a magnificent Peruvian Paso Horse show and great views of the Sacred Valley landscape.

(Hiking time: 2 to 3 hours)

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Accommodation:Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba

Day 3: Full-day trip to Maras, Moray and Misminay

After breakfast we embark on a full-day tour and begin in Moray (11,500'), a fantastic place where impressive circular and semicircular terraces were built into the top of a limestone hill overlooking the Urubamba Valley. The ancient terraces are pre-Inca in origin, but the Incas took them over, and enlarged and refined them. While the Incas used these terraces as a botanical laboratory, today it is believed that, apart from their agricultural function, the concentric terraces have a mystical meaning that we have yet to unlock.

Close by is the colonial village of Maras (11,086'), famed for its salt pans from which one of the finest salts in the world—aptly named Maras salt—is extracted. From here we experience true Andean hospitality in the community of Misminay. We are welcomed into a home for a traditional lunch, then join the locals in their daily activities: You can help plow or harvest crops, depending on the time of year; take part in a ceremony honoring Mother Earth; spin and dye wool thread using natural dyes; weave fabric using ancient techniques; or even go for a donkey-back ride.

(Hiking time: 2 to 3 hours)

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Accommodation:Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba

Day 4: Hike narrow trails from Pumamarca to Ollantaytambo

A narrow dirt road takes us high into the Andes, through villages above the Sacred Valley. Here we observe the native Quechua way of life, where crops are sown and textiles woven with the same simple yet elegant hand tools that have been used for centuries. Our hike begins near the small Pumamarca archeological complex. The origin and purpose of this site remains a mystery, but was thought to be a control point for water distribution for the population. Continuing along the original Inca path, we reach the Choquicancha agricultural terraces. Here we enjoy a picnic lunch and spectacular views of the valley below.

We continue to Ollantaytambo, one of the most monumental architectural complexes of the ancient Inca Empire—and one of the few places where the Spanish conquistadors lost a major battle. Its incredibly preserved ruins are also one of the few Inca sites that have survived just as the Incas designed them.

Next, we follow the trail into the town of Ollantaytambo, with narrow cobblestone streets that have been continuously inhabited since the 13th century. Here we see Inca canchas (enclosures of multi-family living quarters that share just one exit to the street), ingenious stonework, cobbled streets, and an extensive communal water system that survives to this day.

In the late afternoon we transfer back to the Sacred Valley hotel, stopping en route at Ceramicas Seminario to watch a working artist use ancient techniques to make stunning pottery.

(Hiking time: 3 hours)

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Accommodation:Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba

Day 5: Experience the legendary Inca Trail to Machu Picchu

Early in the morning, we embark on the classic Vistadome train up the narrowing gorge of the Urubamba River to Chachabamba, a small Inca site belonging to the archaeological complex of the Machu Picchu Historical Sanctuary; it is believed to be dedicated to water. Here we begin a half-day hike on the Inca Trail to the lost citadel of Machu Picchu. The initial ascent lasts about 2 hours; as we approach the Machu Picchu Sanctuary, the valley turns into a canyon and the vegetation changes to that of a cloud forest. After lunch we continue steadily uphill to the jungle-bound ruins of Wiñay Wayna, Quechua for “forever young,” discovered in 1941.

From here the Inca Trail cuts across the ridge above Machu Picchu to reach the original entrance to Machu Picchu: Intipunku (8,954’), or Gate of the Sun. We pause here to absorb the truly awesome view, then follow the trail down into Aguas Calientes, where we relax at our hotel for the rest of the afternoon and evening.

Those who don’t feel like hiking can continue on the train to Aguas Calientes, just below Machu Picchu, from where we can take a short bus ride to the ruins. We’ll have a short orientation tour of the ruins, and then you’re free to explore the sanctuary on your own for the remainder of the afternoon. We’ll rejoin the hikers at the Sanctuary, and descend to our hotel together.

(Hiking time: 4 to 6 hours)

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Accommodation:Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel

Day 6: Explore magical Machu Picchu

After breakfast, we enter into the awe-inspiring ruins of Machu Picchu by morning light. An expert guide gives us a highly informative tour of the site’s main structures, and we learn about their importance in the lives of the Incas. We also have the opportunity to ascend Machu Picchu’s Old Mountain. It’s a challenging climb rewarded with breathtaking views of the citadel, Huayna Picchu (the towering mountain behind the actual site), and the surrounding mountains.

After a buffet lunch at the Belmond Sanctuary Lodge restaurant, with a great view of the Machu Picchu citadel, we’ll return to the hotel. Here we can enjoy one of its in-house excursions or just stroll in its lovely gardens, which contain more than 372 species of orchid, native palm, fern, begonia, fruit trees, and medicinal plants.

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Accommodation:Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel

Day 7: Take a scenic train ride to Cusco

Enjoy this morning at your leisure, either taking short local hikes or relaxing at the hotel. After lunch at the exquisite Sumaq Machu Picchu Hotel’s restaurant, Qunuq, we catch the Vistadome train back down to Cusco (about a 4-hour ride) and transfer to the hotel. This evening there is time to explore Cusco and its delightful restaurants on your own.

  • Breakfast/Lunch
  • Accommodation:JW Marriott El Convento Cusco

Day 8: Bid farewell to Cusco and fly to Lima

After breakfast at the hotel and a leisurely morning, board an afternoon flight to Lima, where you connect with your homeward-bound flights.

Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba — Sacred Valley

This Inkaterra property is a modern hacienda-style hotel set on 100 acres in the countryside between Cusco and Machu Picchu. With only 12 rooms and 24 casitas, guests can experience solitude, space, and serenity while taking in breathtaking views of the Sacred Valley. The hotel’s architecture and interiors reflect the region’s cultural history, with colonial furniture, Inca masks, and handcrafted woodwork throughout. Deluxe rooms have terraces, exquisite bedding, and all the expected modern amenities; romantic casitas also have fireplaces and dining areas for two. On the vast property is an organic farm where guests can pick their own produce, and from which the on-site restaurant harvests ingredients for its creative, locally inspired menu.

Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel — Aguas Calientes

A village in its own right, Inkaterra Machu Picchu comprises 83 whitewashed casitas dotted across 12 exquisite acres of private cloud forest. Its terraced hills, stone pathways, waterfalls, and lush gardens—home to 372 orchid species and hundreds of exotic birds, among other beautiful flora and fauna—offer guests calming exploration and secluded relaxation. Inside, the individual casitas are rustically elegant sanctuaries for rest, with inviting beds, a dining area for two, and Andean slippers crafted from recycled materials. For still further nurturing, Unu Spa blends classic and mystical Andean approaches to healing. And diners in the first-class restaurant can indulge in Peruvian cuisine with a modern twist while admiring views over the Vilcanota River. Just steps from the Agua Calientes train station, Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo is a luxurious stopover en route from Cusco or Urubamba to the legendary Inca Trail and mystical citadel of Machu Picchu.

JW Marriott El Convento Cusco — Cusco

Located in the elaborately restored 16th-century Saint Augustin Convent, the Marriott El Convento is a truly magnificent hotel. In fact in 2015 it was named a top 10 hotel in South America by the Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards. Every part of the property, from the courtyard and patio to the indoor pool and stone lobby, drips with antique elegance and Spanish details. Its historic grandeur blends beautifully with contemporary comfort, thanks to the stately rooms, deluxe bedding, and marble bathrooms. Amenities include a spa with ancient Andean-inspired healing treatments, and the two on-site restaurants are some of the best in Cusco. Given the hotel’s lofty location, oxygen-enriched rooms are available for guests experiencing—or seeking to stave off—altitude sickness. Speaking of location, El Convento is close to Cusco’s Plaza de Armas, cathedral, and other sights, and just a few hours from Machu Picchu.

"Not only great vistas but the guide, accommodations, food and the Peruvian people make this a most memorable trip. At 58 years of age the hiking was terrific and not to difficult to recover from for the next day's trek." Thomas Schooley
