Arise early for your second guided tour of the Lost City before the day-visitors from Cuzco and the Sacred Valley have yet to arrive in town.

After lunch at the exclusive Sanctuary Lodge, situated atop the mountain next to Machu Picchu, you can return to the site to explore and hike at your own pace.

With some individual stones towering more than 10 feet tall and weighing several hundred tons, Sacsayhuaman is a monumental achievement of architecture and masonry.
 
Then by special arrangement, a local Shaman will perform a purification ritual for General Tours group near the rarely-visited Temple of the Moon. Back in the city, you’ll continue your sightseeing with the Colonial landmarks that surround the Plaza de Armas – including the Cathedral that was completed in 1654 nearly 100 years after construction began.
