Upon request, we are happy to also include a visit to a native Andean community (or even a homestay), where you will step back in time and learn about their customs and traditions, e.g. about their native language Quechua.
Upon arrival into Lima, be assured that a private transfer will be waiting to take you to your hotel. Your driver and English-speaking representative will welcome you to Peru, ensuring that you have a safe and comfortable reception.
Today, your private driver will pick you up from your hotel to take you to the Lima Airport for your one hour flight to Cusco. Upon arrival into the Incan Empire of Cusco, you will be greeted with a welcoming hot coca tea and be given a special gift from the Andes as a thank you from Cultural Immersion.Your private driver will then take you to your hotel, where you will have the rest of the day to spend at your leisure. Feel free to explore the Capital of the Incan Empire by meandering through the cobblestone streets and marveling at the Incan and colonial architecture, visiting some of the many museums, shopping till you drop at the numerous souvenir, clothing and art stores and markets; or you could take it easy by resting in one of the beautiful squares or trying the cuisine and coffee at one of the many chic Peruvian café´s or restaurants. Cusco is at your mercy!
In the morning your private tour guide and driver will take you off the beaten path to Maras, a typical Andean village. Here you will walk through the streets and get a sense that you are walking during the time of the Incas as a lot of the culture has remained very similar. The people continue to wear traditional clothing and the town is lined with historical buildings. You will visit the the incredible circular terraces of Moray, which were used as an Incan laboratory to acclimatize crops. After that, you will have a nice lunch in a local house at a nearby location. Following lunch, you will have an opportunity to visit the salt terraces of Maras to see and learn about an ancient pre-Incan method of producing salt. After exploring Maras & Moray, we will drive to Ollantaytambo, one of the last Incan refuges during Spanish colonization. You will step back in time as many of the houses and buildings continue to stand from the Incan empire and display original architecture. You will be invited to enter one of these houses to observe the building and the way in which the people used to live. We will then take you to visit the powerful and impressive Ollantaytambo ruins, temples and terraces. These sites continue to be well preserved since the Spanish conquest and provide an interesting insight in how towns were designed during the Incan period. After your Sacred Valley tour, you will go to the Ollantaytambo train station where your private tour guide will accompany you to take the one hour and a half train journey through spectacular scenery to AguasCalientes.
This morning, your tour guide will meet you at your hotel and transfer you to the ruins for your tour of Machu Picchu, ‘The Lost City of the Incas.’ At this spectacular sacred Incan site, you will learn about the history and visit the truly remarkable Temples of the Sun and the Condor. You will also see the aqueducts and houses, while learning some interesting facts about the Incan Sacred Terraces. After your guided tour, you will have plenty of time to explore this truly magnificent site on your own. There are many short trek options, such as a the one to the Sun Gate for an impressive view overlooking Machu Picchu and Wayna Picchu or a visit to the Incan Bridge, a secret entrance for the Incan Army. The most adventurous trekkers should not miss the famous mountain climb to the summit of Wayna Picchu, which can be scheduled at either 7am or 10am; however, there is a limit on the number of people who can climb each day so you will need to book it with us in advance.In the afternoon, you will return back to Aguas Calientes in time to for your train to Cusco. Upon arrival into Cusco, we will transfer you to your hotel.
Today your private driver will pick you up from your hotel to take you to the Cusco Airport for your domestic flight to Lima. You will arrive in Lima in time for your connecting international flight.We truly hope you had a great Cultural Immersion with us!

We just returned from a 6 day tour with Cultural Immersion that exceeded our expectations! My husband and I typically do the arranging of trips ourselves because we don't like to be tied down to itineraries but when it came down to visiting Peru we figure we give this tour company a try. I researched a lot of other tour companies and the value this company gave us price/itinerary/reviews it just seemed easier. From the beginning the tour company was very professional. They answered all my inquiries promptly. When it came time to making changes to the itinerary because we wanted to have some time to explore Lima on our own, no problems there. When I had issues with payment because my credit card thought a charge was strange, they were patient in allowing time for the issue to be resolved. Overall the arranging of the trip was handled professionally! Once in Peru the drivers were always on time if not earlier. Our tour guide, Alvaro, was incredibly knowledgeable and we learned a lot about the Inca culture as well as Peru from him. We spoke to another couple who were wrapping up their 16 days tour with the company and they were equally pleased with them. Thank you Eduardo, Hanna, Carlos and Alvaro for such a great experience!
We went to Peru in May 2011 and planned our trip in the Cuzco region and Machu Picchu with Cultural Immersion. From the emails back and forth before our trip even started I was pleased with the way they were giving us all the information I needed. When we arrived to our hotel, they've lefted there few hours to rest and then we started our tour which was awesome. The city, the Inca ruins and Machu Picchu....WOW!! It was nice to have a tour guide to give us description of how things were done. There was only one misunderstanding between us and Cultural Immersion during our ride back from Machu Picchu to Cusco since our train was dropping us to a place in between. I called them prior to board the train and they reassured me that it was the right train and that there would be someone there waiting for us to drive us back to Cusco for the rest. I was glad I could call them during our trip and again, it reassured us when we were not sure what to do. I have to say that I was really please with the service provided by the whole team of Cultural Immersion and I recommend this touring company to everyone!!
We had an an awesome 4 day trip with Cultural Immersions. We were able to explore the best of Sacred Valley, Cusco & Machu Picchu with this professional, reliable group.
We used CI for a four day trip to Cusco and Machu Picchu. Leading up to the trip we had numerous schedule and participant changes, and they handled all the changes with ease. The total price of the trip was considerably less than what I could have achieved if I reserved on my own. From the moment we arrived at baggage claim to the time we left we were fully taken care of - no problems at all. Our guide Daniel was terrific, very knowledgeable with lots of good recommendations. One of our party was sick one day and stayed at the hotel, and CI called several times to be sure he was OK and didn't need anything. Definitely above and beyond! Highly recommend them!
We did 4 days in the Sacred Valley area (including Cusco & Machu Picchu) and 3 days in the Amazon. They arranged tours for our little group of 5 (2 parents, 3 adult children). The answers to all our questions were just a quick e-mail away. The Cultural Immersion staff made sure everything was precisely arranged, the trip went like clockwork. Folks were looking for us at each airport. Rides were on-time and pleasant. We were really pleased with our guide in the Sacred Valley, a local college graduate who was a history major, with a lifetime of experience exploring the area himself and years of experience as a guide. The guide made this trip our best vacation ever!
