Welcome to Peru! Upon landing at Cusco airport, our local representative will welcome you and take our private transport towards the Sacred Valley Incas. Because of its lower elevation (2,870 m or 9,415 ft) and its peaceful atmosphere, the Sacred Valley is the perfect place to enjoy your first days in Cusco. On route, we’ll make a short stop at the Awanacancha museum to see the Peruvian Andes’ different camelids. If time allows, we might also stop at the traditional Pisac market.
