Days 8-9 Machu Picchu/Cuzco

Enjoy a guided tour of Machu Picchu and be sure to have cameras ready - these ruins are seriously photogenic. Return to Cuzco for more sightseeing. The cathedral - built on the foundations of an Inca palace - is well worth a visit. Why not have lunch at Aldea Yanapay Cafe? All proceeds go towards helping Cuzco's underprivileged kids.
