Tours of Cusco, the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu

The typical tour of the Cusco region combines the city with the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu in three awesome days, including the full Boleto Turístico. We recommend devoting five days to get the most out of your visit-including one day to get acclimated to the high altitude.

 

Tierras Vivas is an excellent tour operator in Cusco, and it's specialize in adventure tours, trekking/hikking rafting excursions and others in llama arsisted treks.

Several outfitters offer rafting trips on the Río Urubamba, close enough to Cusco to be done as a day excursion from the city. The river is navigable year-round, with rains turning it into a Class V from November-May, but a more manageable Class III the rest of the year. All also do multiday trips to the Río Apurimac, outside the Sacred Valley in the South of Cusco, during its May-December rafting season.

 

Choosing a Inca Trail Tour Operator or Travel Agency

 

With so many tours in Cusco's streets hawking tours to Peru's most famous sight, it's tempting to just buy one in order to make them stop asking.

Anyone who offers as Inca Trail trek departing tomorrow should be taken with more than a grain of salt-Inca Trail walks need to be booked months in advance. Don't make arrangements or give money to someone claiming to be a travel agent if they approach you on the street or at the airport in Cusco or Lima. Instead choose an agency that has a physical address.

 

Hiking tours to Machu Picchu

Many are the routes that take you to Machu Picchu, but none is like the Inca Trail Tours, the most famous pedestrian path in the Americas. After flying from the capital of Perú, Lima, you will arrive in Cusco to walk for four days along a path through forests and dense fog, millenary stone steps and discovering the ruins of ancient fortifications and Inca cities, and all the time enjoying majestic views. 

If you want to visit Machu Picchu, we recommend you to book your Machu Picchu Ticket in advance, so you will enjoy your Vacation in Machu Picchu without any problem.

 

When is the best time to hike to Machu Picchu?

The best season is during the dry season, which covers the months April to the end of September. In October the rains begin and you can find Machu Picchu covered by clouds. If you travel in June, we recommend you to book the Inti Raymi 2020 Tour that takes place in June 24th, and also hike the Palcoyo Mountain Tour, which is an incredible Rainbow Mountain located in the Andes.
