Daily Itinerary
  Day 1 Hotel Costa del Sol Picoaga Cusco, Peru  
   
You will be greeted at the airport in Cusco and transferred to your hotel for the night. This afternoon you will have a city tour of the nearby ruins, visiting the Korikancha or Temple of the Sun and the Cathedral, continuing from there to the nearby ruins of Tambomachay (Inca fountains), Puca-Pucara (the Red Fortress), Kenko (sacred site) and finally Sacsahuaman Fortress.
 
  Day 2 Hotel Pakaritampu Urubamba (Sacred Valley), Peru
After breakfast in the hotel we will visit Pisac, famous for its Mass and market. The Mass is attended by the 'mayors' of the neighboring villages, complete in typical dress and carrying their traditional 'varayoc' or staff of office. You will also enjoy the colorful Indian market. In the afternoon you will tour the remarkable Inca fortress of Ollantaytambo with its magnificent mountain stairway. Among other things, you will be intrigued by six enormous pink stones, each weighing some 50 tons. These came from the other side of the river, but nobody knows how they were transported, since the Incas did not use the wheel.
  Day 3 Hotel Hatuchay Towers Aguas Calientes, Peru
 
This morning you will have a transfer to the Ollanta station to take the train to the fabulous mountaintop citadel of Machu Picchu. Upon arrival there will be a guided tour of the ruins. Immerse yourself in the mystical surroundings. Lunch is included in today's excursion. Note: You are only allowed to carry one small backpack to the ruins in Machu Picchu (don't forget to bring your passport, camera, mosquito repellent, sunscreen, light jacket and a lot of fun).
  Day 4 Hotel Costa del Sol Picoaga Cusco, Peru
   

After breakfast at the hotel, you will take a morning tour to the Koricancha or Temple of the Sun, and the narrow streets of San Blas district, the typical Indian walls of Hantunrumiyoc and seven Culebras, the stone with 12 corners, the Cathedral and the Archaeology Museum containing mummies, textiles and jewelry. Overnight in Cusco.

  Day 5 Hotel Panoramic Puerto Iguazu, Argentina
Today you will say goodbye to one mystical place and enter another. Upon arrival in Puerto Iguazu, you will be greeted at the airport and transferred to your hotel for the next 2 nights. Rest of the afternoon free at leisure.
  Day 6 Hotel Panoramic Puerto Iguazu, Argentina
 
Today you will take a full day tour of the Argentinian side of Iguazu Falls. Guarani legend says that Iguazu Falls originated when a jealous forest god, enraged by a young warrior escaping down the river in a canoe with a young, beautiful girl, causes the riverbed to collapse in front of the lovers, producing a precipitous waterfall over which the girl falls, and, at their base, turned into a rock. The warrior survived, but as a tree overlooking his fallen lover. You will have all day in this amazing natural wonder, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
  Day 7    
After breakfast, you will have a transfer to the airport to make your national or international connections.
