Anyone traveling to Cusco should be sure to visit Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley. You'll learn about the local geography, Inca history, and significance of the region while accompanied by an expert photographer guide. The tour begins at the best photoshoot locations throughout the sacred valley. Mountains, crop fields, picturesque small towns, this experience includes all of the must-see locations in the sacred valley, which have been carefully selected for better photo opportunities. The textile weavers of Chinchero, the Moray archaeological site, and the Maras salt mines are places where you will learn more about the Inca's historical memory and why the Sacred Valley was such an important political, agricultural, and spiritual location for them.

In contrast to traditional tours, which feature large groups, short time spent at the sites, and only visiting a few locations, our small-group trip of 2-6 people ensures a personalized experience. 

The tour is followed later in the afternoon by a scenic train ride through the cloud forest on the way to Machu Picchu, after checking into a comfortable hotel in Aguas Calientes, spend some time exploring the surrounding area. The following day, get up early to see Machu Picchu at sunrise and enjoy a comprehensive tour led by your guide.
