    Enjoy a great 4-day tour exploring the magic of Cusco and visiting Machu Picchu, the land of the Incas. Your tour includes transport and accommodation.

    Day 1: Cusco City Tour

    Upon arrival to Cusco, you'll be transferred to the hotel and have free time to rest and adapt to the altitude. In the afternoon, your city sightseeing tour begins with the Temple of the Sun (Koricancha), and continues with the archeological site of Sacsayhuaman. This enormous place was strategically built on a hill overlooking Cusco and is famous for its carved stones, some of which stand at 30 feet (9 meters) tall and weigh around 350 tons. 

    Day 2: Tour of the Sacred Valley of the Incas

    Today, take a tour of the Sacred Valley, visiting the archaeological site of Pisac and the colorful Andean market and church. After visiting Pisac, you'll travel past Lamay and Calca, and arrive in Urubamba town for lunch. After having lunch, you will continue with tour visiting Ollantaytambo town, where you will see its typical streets. Finally, you will visit the picturesque Andean village of Chinchero, home to Tupac Inca Yupanqui Palace.

    Day 3: Machu Picchu

    Very early in the morning, you'll be picked up from the hotel to take the bus to the train station located in Ollantaytambo. You will take the tourist train to Aguas Calientes which is a 1.5-hour ride. During the journey you will see the Urubamba canyon, Urubamba River, and the snow-capped peaks of the Veronica Mountain.

    Once you reach Aguas Calientes, you will be contacted by the guide to take the bus and climb the citadel of Machu Picchu which takes about 20 minutes.

      Truly, once in a lifetime experience. Mysterios Peru Travel looked after all our needs. From pick up at the airport, through El Puma hotel, all necessary tickets and reservations, to final drop off on day 4 everything was well prepared! Our coordinator, Lenin, stayed in constant touch to insure our comfort in this foreign to us language country. Choice of venues may be somewhat overwhelming to a less agile seniors, as bus access is limited to a front gate entry. Walking sticks would be highly recommended to anyone needing assistance. Insect repellent and sunblock application is a must! Complementary buffet lunch on Secret Inca Valley tour, day 2 and lovely box brunch, for the early morning start for Machu Picchu tour were greatly appreciated. As Lenin told us upon arrival, everything is looked after! And it certainly was :

      Our flight arrived just in time for the start of day 1 of the tour. There was someone already waiting for us in Cusco Airport, he took us to our hotel and the tour started right away. Great environment, the tour guides we're very friendly and informative. We had all of our tickets delivered and explained to us in the spot and the guides were always available to solve any question. Great experience, highly recommended.

      PS: If you can try to reach Cusco one or two days beforehand, the altitude really affects you, luckily Macchu Picchu is not that high.

      Misterios Peru and Lenin did a fair job of organizing our tour - there were some hiccups along the way that should be addressed. First, there was no one waiting with a sign for us at Cusco Airport. The organizing company should realize that if the driver is there waiting, they HAVE TO HOLD A SIGN up or we won't be able to figure out who our driver is. Bag handlers and taxi drivers in Peru are fairly aggressive about trying to get customers, so this lead to an unpleasant first introduction to Cusco. Second, the tour operators tend to run on Peru Time, which means they will probably be late by 10-15 minutes every day. Third, when we rode the train to Machu Picchu from Ollantaytambo, our seats were not next to each other we were in a group of 4. Instead, we had to sit across from strangers the seats were arranged to be facing each other - they were unwilling to switch seats. Fourth, when we arrived to Machu Picchu, we couldn't find our tour guide after getting off of the bus at the entrance. Again, HOLDING A SIGN WITH A NAME ON IT is required to find someone in the huge crowds at the entrance to Machu Picchu - the customers can't be expected to ask the dozens of guides there who is supposed to be guiding them! After talking to a half-dozen guides and not finding ours, we ended up entering the site without the guide because we couldn't find him. At the end, Lenin did help us get our taxi ride back to the Cusco Airport at the end quickly, within minutes of me calling him, so he did genuinely seem to want to help. Overall, it was still an enjoyable trip, but the aforementioned problems are basically what we wanted to avoid by hiring a tour group in the first place.

        General rating: 4/10
