6 Day Luxury Machu Picchu & Sanctuary Lodge Tour


  • Day 1 - Arrival in Lima, Peru

    Welcome to Peru! Today is a transit day, and after a long flight you're probably looking forward to a nice meal and some relaxation. The Costa del Sol hotel is located right across the street from the airport and is the best choice for travelers connecting to Cuzco. However, if you arrive to Lima in the early afternoon, you may choose to stay in the district of Miraflores. In this case, a representative will meet you at the airport and escort you to your hotel.

  • Day 2 - Travel Lima to Cuzco

    In the morning you'll catch a flight to Cuzco, the capital city of the former Inca Empire. Since you're going from sea level to 11,500 feet, you will want to spend today slowly adjusting to your new beautiful but literally breath-taking surroundings. Cuzco is one of the most charming towns in all of South America, and extremely pedestrian and visitor friendly.

  • Day 3 - Private Cuzco Excursion

    Now that you've adjusted to this Andean city, today you'll set off on a private guided tour of Cuzco. Your guide will pick you up from your hotel and take you to the city's best sites, such as Koricancha (an important Inca temple) and the massive colonial cathedral containing numerous pieces from the Cuzco school of art. You will also head up the hill to the city's outskirts to visit Sacsayhuaman, a massive Inca complex with impressive stonework.

  • Day 4 - Sacred Valley Tour & Sanctuary Lodge

    Your Sacred Valley tour will include visits to the ancient circular agricultural terraces of Moray, the salt mines at Maras, and the ruins and village of Ollantaytambo. Departing from Ollantaytambo, enjoy a scenic train ride through the Sacred Valley to the town of Machu Picchu where you will stay in your hotel at Aguas Calientes.

  • Day 5 - Machu Picchu Tour & Luxury Train

    Since you can see the ruins outside the window, take your time and enjoy your all-inclusive stay the Sanctuary Lodge in Machu Picchu's backyard. After filling up at breakfast, your guide will take you through the official entrance and you'll discover Machu Picchu together. This magical site remains largely a mystery even to this day. In the afternoon you'll return to Cuzco in luxury upon the Hiram Bingham train. This opulent train journey includes a full gourmet Peruvian meal.

  • Day 6 - Travel Cuzco to Lima

    Enjoy a final morning waking to the Andean sun before meeting your transfer to the Cuzco airport. You'll fly back to Lima and, depending on your departing international flight, enjoy a tour of Lima or immediately catch your connecting flight out.


Hidden among the Peruvian Andes, never discovered by the Spanish, is the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu. During a Machu Picchu luxury tour, walk amongst the most impressive and well-preserved site of pre-Columbian America and let your breath be taken away.

Climbing Huayna Picchu (the mountain in THAT photo)

What is Huayna Picchu? Day visitors to Machu Picchu can choose between a regular entry ticket or a ticket that includes hiking to either Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu Mountain. Huayna Picchu is the dramatic cone-shaped peak which towers above Machu Picchu in all the photos…you know the one. Machu Picchu means ‘old mountain’ in Quechua and Huayna Picchu means ‘young mountain’. At 8,920ft, it’s the second highest point in the ruins precinct (Machu Picchu Mountain is higher) but it still enjoys great views. This could be you... (Photo credit: Jipe7 on Flickr) Huayna Picchu versus Machu Picchu Mountain If your legs allow it, hiking up one of these two peaks is highly recommended. But which one will it be?
