This is the experience

  • Cusco is one of the most popular destinations in the world. One of the most important dates is June 24. During this day a very important and showy event takes place. A ceremony is staged with more than 800 artists, all of them dressed and accompanied by live music and songs that are a symbol of everything that Tawantinsuyo once represented. This staging lasts approximately 6 hours and is done in 3 acts. The first takes place on the esplanade of the Coricancha temple, the second takes place in the Main Square, also known as Huacaypata. Finally, the Inti Raymi ends in Sacsayhuamán where the most colorful show takes place.
  • The second day we will leave very early in the direction of the wonder of the world. We will leave in the direction of the Sacred Valley of the Incas until we reach Ollantaytambo. From this place we will board a train to Aguas Calientes. In this place it is time to ascend in an ecological bus to Machu Picchu. Before returning to Aguas Calientes it is possible to access a buffet lunch at a special and extra price. You also return to Cusco in a bimodal service, first by train and then by bus or minivan.
