Day 2 Lima City Tour - Cusco, Peru

Today embark on a city tour of Lima, where you will be guided to some of the most important locations in the city, including Huaca Pucllana, the Plaza de Armas, Lima Cathedral and the Santo Domingo Convent.
Huaca Pucllana is a huge archaeological site in Miraflores, one of Lima’s most popular districts. Huaca Pucllana was an important ceremonial and administrative centre of the Lima culture, which developed along this part of the Peruvian coast between 200 AD and 700 AD.

After exploring Huaca Pucllana with your guide, travel to the historic centre of Lima, which is a designated UNESCO World Heritage site. Go to the beautiful Plaza de Armas (Lima’s main square) which is surrounded by impressive colonial and Republican-era buildings, many of which have ornate wooden balconies. Visit the Cathedral of Lima, which was completed in 1649. It’s a huge structure, with a large central nave and 14 side chapels. Inside, we’ll see the sculptures and paintings that decorate the interior.

Next, we’ll walk one block to the Convent of Santo Domingo. Founded in the 1530s and completed in 1766, it is one of the most important religious buildings in Peru, and its large bell tower is a landmark in the historic centre of Lima.

Day 3 Cusco City Tour

Wake up in Cusco, the former capital of the Inca Empire, one of the most fascinating cities in South America. Just walking through the city centre you can see the incredible mix of Inca and colonial architecture, watch the merging of indigenous and Spanish influences, and feel the history that flows through every cobblestone street. Cusco is located in the Peruvian Andes at an altitude of 3,399 metres above sea level.

Today you will embark on a half-day tour, visiting Cusco Cathedral, the Koricancha (Qorikancha), Sacsayhuaman and Tambomachay, giving you a deep insight into the city and its history. First go to the wonderful Koricancha, next to the Church of Santo Domingo. According to chroniclers writing during the period immediately after the Spanish conquest, the Koricancha was the most sacred and important temple of the Inca Empire. Its walls were covered in gold, and life-size statues of plants and animals, all made of pure gold and silver, decorated its rooms and corridors. Unfortunately, this wealth was stripped away by the Spanish conquistadors.

Afterwards, visit the Cathedral of Cusco, located in the Plaza de Armas. Built between 1560 and 1654 on the foundations of an existing Inca temple, this spectacular cathedral houses many works of art from the Cusco school of painters, and its high altar and pulpit are covered in gold and silver reliefs. The next stop is the imposing Inca fortress of Sacsayhuaman, which stands on a hill above Cusco. Here you will see some of the best examples of Inca stonework and construction, including huge rocks that were carefully cut and fitted perfectly to form the walls. Then we visit the Qenqo Archaeological Complex, which is considered an Inca labyrinth where there is an altar with ritual motifs. Then we head to Tambomachay. The exact purpose of this site is unknown, but it may have functioned, at least in part, as an Inca spa.

After a morning of exploring, you’ll have the remainder of the day at your own leisure.

Day 4 Sacred Valley

The Sacred Valley of the Incas is a beautiful valley that is located north of Cusco.

Civilizations have inhabited this valley since at least 800 BC, when the Chanapata civilization arrived here to make use of the rich soil. Today you will embark on a full-day tour to discover the fascinating archaeological sites of civilizations past.

Leaving Cusco, we pass through the Abra de Corao and head into the mountains before descending about 450 metres to the bottom of the valley. Here we will explore the colourful traditional markets in Pisac before heading to the archaeological site, where we will explore the extensive ruins and enjoy beautiful views of the valley. Afterwards, we stop in Urubamba for lunch (not included) before heading to the Inca town of Ollantaytambo which was the royal estate of the Inca emperor Pachacuti, who conquered the region and built the town and a ceremonial centre.

Today you will check out from your accommodation in Cusco and be transferred to Ollantaytambo Train Station.

It is a beautiful town that mixes traditional life with a huge tourist infrastructure, with a multitude of markets, souvenir shops, hotels and restaurants. It's also largely pedestrianized, making it a fun place to explore on foot. Aguas Calientes is surrounded by jungle-covered mountains and cliffs, and the Urubamba River flows right by the town.

Optional Tour Supplement - Express Inca Trail Trek - $515 per person
Your Machu Picchu adventure begins in Cusco, where you’ll be picked up from your hotel and taken to Ollantaytambo train station by your tour guide.

You will be picked up in the early morning (approximately 04:30). You will board the train for a 1.5 hour scenic train ride to Kilometre 104 to start your short Inca Trail trek. From here, you will hike approximately 4 hours to the Inca site of Wiñay Wayna (“Forever Young”) which is approximately 2,680 metres above sea level. Built on a steep hillside overlooking the Urubamba River, this archaeological site has a series of 10 baths and numerous Inca buildings displaying high levels of Inca masonry. Wiñay Wayna was discovered almost 30 years after the entire world knew about Machu Picchu and almost 40 years after Machu Picchu was first discovered. Little is known about what Wiñay Wayna was originally built for, however there are theories that it was built as a spiritual destination or resting place before reaching Machu Picchu, where elders and royalty would cleanse themselves in the baths. Others believe that the site functioned as a kind of administrative centre to keep track of the amount of produce stored on-site.

After exploring Wiñay Wayna, you will continue your walk to Inti Punku (the Puerta del Sol). From here, you will have your first and spectacular view of Machu Picchu. This site was believed to have once been the main entrance to Machu Picchu and was dedicated to Inti, the Inca Sun God. You’ll then head to Aguas Calientes where the remainder of your afternoon will be spent at leisure. Please note, given the nature and overall length of this tour, the fitness level required for this supplement tour is of moderate to active fitness. This will be done early on in your 25-day tour, so please bear this in mind. There may be uneven surfaces on the trek and you may experience trekking at high-altitudes. Should you have any concerns, it is best to speak to your GP for advice.

Optional Tour Supplement: Express Inca Trail Trek - $515 per person
Your Machu Picchu adventure begins in Cusco, where you’ll be picked up from your hotel and taken to Ollantaytambo train station by your tour guide. You will be picked up in the early morning (approximately 04:30). You will board the train for a 1.5-hour scenic train ride to Kilometre 104 to start your short Inca Trail trek. From here, you will hike approximately 4 hours to the Inca site of Wiñay Wayna (“Forever Young”) which is approximately 2,680 metres above sea level. Built on a steep hillside overlooking the Urubamba River, this archaeological site has a series of 10 baths and numerous Inca buildings displaying high levels of Inca masonry. Wiñay Wayna was discovered almost 30 years after the entire world knew about Machu Picchu and almost 40 years after Machu Picchu was first discovered. Little is known about what Wiñay Wayna was originally built for, however, there are theories that it was built as a spiritual destination or resting place before reaching Machu Picchu, where elders and royalty would cleanse themselves in the baths. Others believe that the site functioned as a kind of administrative centre to keep track of the amount of produce stored on-site.
After exploring Wiñay Wayna, you will continue your walk to Inti Punku (the Puerta del Sol). From here, you will have your first spectacular view of Machu Picchu. This site was believed to have once been the main entrance to Machu Picchu and was dedicated to Inti, the Inca Sun God. You’ll then head to Aguas Calientes where the remainder of your afternoon will be spent at leisure. 
Please note: Given the nature and overall length of this activity, the fitness level required for this supplement tour is moderate to active fitness. This will be done early on in your 25-day tour, so please bear this in mind. There may be uneven surfaces on the trek and you may experience trekking at high altitudes. Should you have any concerns, it is best to speak to your GP for advice.

A valid international certificate of vaccination against Yellow Fever is required in many countries. You may need to present this on arrival at the airport or border crossing. Some countries will refuse entry if you are unable to present your certificate. It's also common for your home country to request a Yellow Fever certificate upon arrival. You must check with your doctor well before leaving home about the Yellow Fever requirements for the countries you'll be visiting. 
 
Gratuities/Tipping 
Land 
Gratuities (tips) are not included for the services of the tour leader (when available) and driver throughout the tour. The recommended tip is $8-$10USD per person per day. This covers the guide/leader and the driver and will be collected on tour. There are two tour operators in this package, and the tour representative will collect the tip amount at the start of the tour, ie. Day 1 to Day 11 tip amount $80-$100USD per person collected on Day 2 of the itinerary and Day 11 to Day 22 tip amount $88-$110USD per person collected on Day 12 of the itinerary. These amounts will be distributed to the operators used in this package. Total amount to budget for tipping: $168 - $210 USD per person. The recommended tips for the Galapagos extension package is $10 - $15 USD per day for guides, transportation and restaurants.
Please note: Tipping for services provided is always a matter of personal discretion; however, please be aware that many locals consider tipping part of their normal remuneration, and they may approach you for payment; there's no need to be intimidated by the request. 
 
Sightseeing 
Please note: If the entrance to a site is affected by changes in operating hours or public holiday closures, your itinerary, where possible, may be adjusted, or a similar activity will be offered in its place (subject to availability). 
 
Shopping 
Shopping overseas can be a daunting and confusing experience, especially when there is a language barrier. Please be very cautious when foreign currencies and prices are involved. If paying by credit card, please pay close attention to the amount you are being charged and keep all your receipts. Do not make any purchases you are not comfortable with or feel pressured into. If you are uncertain or need assistance with the language barrier, please seek assistance from your Tour Guide/Leader. Please refer to our Terms and Conditions regarding shopping for further information. 
 
Visas

Peru 
Tourists don't need a visa. You can get a permit to stay for up to 3 months when you arrive. You may need a valid yellow fever vaccination certificate to enter Peru. Some airlines may want to see one when you leave. If you've visited Peru in the previous 6 days, you'll need a valid certificate to enter Australia. Find out about returning to Australia after exposure to yellow fever. 
 
Argentina 
As a tourist, you can stay for up to 90 days without a visa, but you'll need:
• A return or onward ticket.
• A valid passport.
• Travel/medical insurance.
• You don't need to undertake a COVID-19 test before travelling. You will need to have travel or medical insurance coverage for your time in Argentina, which covers you in case of hospital admission for COVID-19. Visit Argentina's National Directorate for Migration's website for up-to-date information on entry requirements (website in Spanish). 
 
Brazil 
From 10 April 2025, a visa is required for Australian passport holders entering Brazil. Persons travelling after this date to Brazil will require a Visit Visa to enter the country. You can apply for a visa here: https://www.gov.br/mre/pt-br/embaixada-camberra/English/consular-section/visas/short-term-visas-for-stays-up-to-90-days/e-visa. Entry and exit conditions may change without warning. Follow the advice of border and health authorities and comply with local regulations. Contact your airline or the nearest embassy or consulate of Brazil for more information. 
 
United States (Transiting) 
If travelling on an Australian passport, an ESTA (visa waiver) for the USA is a strict requirement when travelling to or flying through the USA. Once a USA ESTA visa waiver is issued it is valid for 2 years or until your passport expires (whichever is sooner) and will allow multiple entries into the USA. For information on ESTA eligibility or to apply, please visit: https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/esta/ 
Please note: Due to recent changes to USA immigration policies, TripADeal recommends all travellers visit US Customs & Border Protection. 
 
Chile 
If your travel includes transiting through Chile, you should contact the nearest Embassy or Consulate of Chile to confirm if you'll need a visa. If you transit in Chile without a visa and miss your connecting flight, you won’t be able to pass the immigration point. You'll be required to remain airside and not leave the airport until a new onward flight has been arranged. Australians have previously been required to remain airside for several days due to missed flight connections. For more information regarding visa requirements for Chile please visit https://www.consulado.gob.cl/servicios/e-visa-para-australia 
 
Ecuador (Itinerary 2 Only) 
Tourist visas for Peru and Ecuador are not required if travelling on an Australian Passport.
Please note: Passengers who are not Australian citizens must check with the respective consulate or visa agency to determine what their visa requirements are and what personal identification is required. It is also important to note, some areas of employment such as journalism, government authorities and charity organisations may have additional restrictions in applying for Visas. This may in turn affect the type of application required.
Important:
• Please start arranging your visa three weeks before departure to account for any delays due to consulate operating hours.
• Visa rules may have changed since Covid-19. Some countries and airlines may require you to obtain an additional visa before arrival. Please check with the nearest embassy, consulate or immigration department of the destination you're entering.
