Machu Picchu, Peru - Inti Travel and Tours

Later, in the Sacred Valley of the Incas,  we visit the Native Market at Pisac and the town and ceremonial site of Ollantaytambo -  the only Inca village that has been continuously inhabited since the time of the Incas. 

The highlight of our trip is the visit to Machu Picchu the legendary "Lost City of the Incas", so well hidden by the overgrowth that it was never found by the "Conquistadores".

It was rediscovered by professor Hiram Bingham in 1911. This city is one of the world's most beautiful and important archaeological finds of the 20th century.
