MACHU PICCHU TOUR DESCRIPTION
The 4 Day Machu Picchu Tour Package offers the most complete travel itinerary for Cusco, the Sacred Valley of the Incas and Machu Picchu. If you are looking to immerse yourself in the history and culture of the Inca Empire, this is the tour for you!
The story of Machu Picchu is as amazing as the citadel itself. It was hidden in the Andes, buried underneath centuries of heavy vegetation until 1911, when the American explorer Hiram Bingham discovered it, following a tip from locals.
Today, the Historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu is considered one of the New Seven Wonders of the World and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It has received many awards and recognitions over the years, most recently TripAdvisor’s 2015 #2 Landmark around the World! It is truly an engineering and architectural masterpiece, which is also surrounded by a palpable mystical aura. This is one of the destinations you must visit in your lifetime!
