We will then drive you in our private transport to Sacsayhuaman. The massive Inca fortress is perched on a hilltop overlooking Cusco city. It was built by Pachacutec. The sites have massive stones each weighing over 100 tons. The Incas did not use mortars; instead, they cut these stones finely and joined them.
We will then visit the archeological complex of Q’enqo. It was a prominent site during the Inca civilization The Incas did scarifications and mummifications here.
Tambomachay was a spa to the Incan political elite. There are several canals here which are linked with nearby natural hot springs. Although the site was built decades ago, these canals are still in use.
We will then visit Puca Pucara. The name in Quechua means Red Fort. The Incas safely guarded Cusco against here. It derived its name from the color of the rock which was used to build the site. At dusk, with the reflection of the sun, the rock transforms to a red color.

The archeological site boasts carefully designed agricultural terraces and aqueducts built by Incas. Most of them are in use even today. There is a white-washed church overlooking the valley. This was built by Spanish conquistadors on the remains of the Incas Royal Palace.
We will then drive to Maras Salt Mines. These are geometrically shaped puddles nestled on a slope of a hill.
Locals feed these puddles with water from the nearby hot springs. When the water evaporates naturally it leaves behind salt crystals. They scrape them out manually. This is a tradition that is passed down from generation to generation.

We came across this package tour with Machu Picchu Amazon Peru and were excited as we were keenly looking for something of this sort. They offered everything from airport pickup in Cusco to an excellent and informative tour. This itinerary covered almost all major attractions with informative English-speaking local guides.
