Combo Sacred Valley & Machu Picchu + Sun Gate 02 days 01 night
This tour is the best way to see the highlights of Cusco region and Peru, from the impressive Andes mountains rising up from the Sacred Valley which contains Inca temples, residences, altars, channels, carvings, impressive agricultural terraces, Ollantaytambo an alive Incans town surrounded by huge snow peak mountains. The people live very proud of their culture, with their traditions and customs since their ancestors.
To a breathtaking 8, 000ft above sea leve, veiled in cloud atop the mountainous columns of the Urubamba Valley, Machu Picchu is the most important historical site in the Americas.
The site is one of the best remaining examples of the outstanding Inca architecture and stonemasonry. The city was crafted from huge blocks of stone, carved with incredible skill to fit together without the need for mortar or cement.
There are few sights in the world that compare to the swirling mists . . .
If you want to hike Waynapicchu Mountain or Machupicchu Montaña, please, do not hesitate to ask me for it.

I would be amazed if there is a more qualified and professional guide in Peru than Edwin. I am amazed at the breadth and depth of his knowledge on history, geography, local custom -- you name it and his intelligence shines. Our tour of the Sacred Valley and Matchu Picchu was first rate in every way. He was very careful to slow down the pace to accommodate the older (and out of shape) person in our party but made sure we saw everything. You will not go wrong with selecting Edwin. He cares deeply.
