Get the best of both worlds in 2 days by combining a tour of the Sacred Valley of the Incas to see the top archeological sites around Cusco with a tour of the Historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu, a World Heritage property and world-class tourist destination. Among the main towns of the Sacred Valley that you’ll see on day 1 is the Ollantaytambo Archeological Complex, a monumental architectural piece of the Inca Empire, strategically located to control the entrance to the valley. Early the second day, your tour guide will take you through the citadel of Machu Picchu, an architectural gem found deep in the cloud forest with its perfectly carved stone constructions in harmony with the environment.
