You have a short time in Cusco, must visit Machu Picchu, and would love to get off the beaten path with a Cusco homestay. What to do? Consider our Rural Spectacular tour!
Begin in the beautiful and remote province of Acomayo for a taste of rural Andean life. Continue to the Sacred Valley of the Incas, visting highlights and a communtiy tourism project on our way to a remote corner of the valley. Here we`ll participate in a second Cusco homestay, hike to a gorgeous waterfall and visit interesting Inca ruins. Our final day is spent at magnificent Machu Picchu.
Touch down in beautiful Cusco. We`ll introduce you to the city`s significant treasures and hidden local spots. Take the evening to enjoy Cusco`s delectable restaurants, sample a Pisco Sour, or rest up for a completely unique experience the following day.
Embark for a day that defines experiential travel! Begin with an easy downhill bike ride through rural Acomayo, learn about local crops and help prepare a traditional, fresh meal. In the evening, you will listen to village folklore or live music.
Hike along ancient paths for beautiful views of the countryside. Discover a rustic colonial church with frescos from an important Spanish painter before returning to your cozy Cusco hotel.
Explore the best of the Sacred Valley on a splendid horseback ride. We`ll treat you to an organic lunch with a local family before meeting our homestay family in a tiny village above the Sacred Valley.
Hike to the lovely Perollniyoc waterfall and Inca ruins, past family farms and grazing sheep. We`ll learn about and sample chicha (traditional corn beer), then enjoy a wonderfully scenic train ride to the base of Machu Picchu.
Explore Machu Picchu! Tour renowned areas of the arecheological complex , plus lesser-known (but equally fabulous) spots. You`ll have time to explore on your own or climb Huayna Picchu before returning to Cusco.
At the appropriate time, transfer to the Cusco airport for your return flight to Lima and international flight home.
