Sacred Valley Itinerary Choice

Jump to last reply

Short trip with our college-aged kids. We cannot swing more days. I spent a month in Peru in the '80s and did the Salkantay trek and all sorts of other cool stuff, but this is the first time for the rest of the family. We like adventure, but also like to relax - boys don't want ruins every day. We live at sea level, but all fared well in high altitude in Quito and have had no problems at the Aspen summit (11,000+ feet). Appreciate opinions. Option 1 involves 3 nights in Ollantaytambo; option 2 allows 3 nights in Cusco

Option #1:
Day 1 - Ollanta (arrive Cusco 8am, transfer to Ollanta via Pisac)
Day 2 - Ollanta (Explore Ollanta)
Day 3 - Ollanta (Local trek - Maras or weaving village?)
Day 4 - Machu Picchu - stay in Aguas Calientes
Day 5 - Cusco (11am train to Ollanta, drive to Cusco via Chinchero)
Day 6 - Cusco
Day 7 - home

OR
Day 1 - Ollanta (arrive Cusco, 8am, transfer to Ollanta via Pisac)
Day 2 - Ollanta local excursion (Maras/weaving village?)
Day 3 - MP - stay in AC
Day 4 - Cusco (11am train to Ollanta, drive to Cusco via Chinchero)
Day 5 - Cusco
Day 6 - Cusco
Day 7 - Home
