Depart Lima for Cusco on a minibus with your small group for an 8-day Inca tour of Peru. Visits to both cities feature guided walking tours; you'll learn about the mix of architectural styles in Cusco, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and explore the historical center of Lima on foot.
Simple daily breakfasts are included, as well as 3 lunches and 3 dinners.
Select from the following 2 options to fully explore Machu Picchu:
- Hike the Inca Quarry Trail (16 miles/26 km) for three days, with overnight camping for two nights (with train to Aguas Calientes and bus to Machu Picchu)
- Hike the Classic Inca Trail (28 miles/45 km) for four days, with overnight camping for three nights (arriving at Machu Picchu on foot)
Both trails require a moderate level of fitness and some pre-hike acclimatizing at altitude. Your personal and camping gear will be carried by horses or porters. Camp on both treks in double tents with provided foam camping mats. Porters set up the tents each night and meals are prepared by the trek cook.
