Itinerary Review: Sacred Valley/Machu Picchu/Cusco

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone,

I am finalizing my itinerary for the Sacred Valley/Machu Picchu/Cusco portion of my Peru trip and would appreciate any advice or tips on whether this schedule makes sense. My husband and I don’t like to be too rushed on vacation so I’m wondering if this plan tries to cram in too many sites. I’ve put in some alternative options I am considering for some of the days. If anyone has thoughts on those, that would be helpful too. Thanks in advance for the help!

Sunday: Arrive Cusco 1:30PM and travel to Ollantaytambo (alternative: visit Chinchero market or Moray/Salineras on the way)

Monday: Salineras/Moray/Chincero (alternative: if we visit one or more of these on Sunday, tour Ollantaytambo fortress and/or do a Quechua village tour)

Tuesday: Fortress/Explore town in morning; Train to Aguas Calientes leaves at 1:27

Wednesday: Machu Picchu; Train to Cusco leaves at 5:27

Thursday: Pisac ruins and market (is this better to do on Friday?)

Friday: Full Day Cusco and ruins tour: city tour and Sacsayhuaman, TamboMachay, PucaPucara, the Temple of the Moon, Q’enqo

Saturday: Hang in Cusco; flight to Lima leaves at 1:10PM
