Lima – Cusco

Early morning departure from hotel for your flight to Cusco. Upon landing, your tour will start en route to the Sacred Valley. Visit Awanakancha, a farm of South American camelids and a showroom of textiles, where local families show the entire traditional process of weaving and making garments. You will then visit the Pisac citadel, a town shaped as a partridge, which is known for two reasons: for the craft market established between colonial buildings and for housing one of the most impressive complex of agricultural terraces of the valley. The market has scores of stands that exhibit and sell products manufactured by the residents of the area. We have lunch at Wayra Ranch, where rich soil and ideal weather have combined to create a surprising gastronomic feast led by the prominent Chef, Pedro Miguel Schiaffino and Nacho Solis. Stunning equestrian demonstrations set to the rhythm of marinera music will render the environment favorable for tasting the quality of their cuisine. Finally you will visit the Ollantaytambo, a typical example of the urban planning of the Incas, whose residents still live in accordance with their old traditions. PachacĂștec (1438-1471) conquered the town, destroyed it and built a new one, absorbing it as part of his empire. The Ollantaytambo fortress is a huge archaeological complex which, although it bears the name of fortress, it was actually a tambo, a city, used to accommodate the delegations that traveled long distances. Without a doubt, it is one of the most monumental works of the Inca Empire.
