This magic experience, starts at your hotel, we are going to pick you up and head to the south of Cusco.

Then we’ll go on a brief walk around Raqchi's town, and meet a typical band of Andean music welcoming us. Next, we will hike a section of the Inca Trail, until a beautiful spot in the middle of the countryside, where we’ll be treated with a delicious picnic lunch, with lawa (traditional Andean soup of corn cream) and a main course, accompanied by the millenary chicha de jora (corn brew, with a delicious, refreshing taste). Hiking back down along the hill, we then head to the archaeological site itself, where our professional will give us a very deep explanation about the places where we have been. Finally, we walk back to Raqchi’s village and get picked up to return home.
