ACCOMMODATIONS & EXPECTATIONS
We are staying at an adorable boutique hotel in the heart of Cusco located just a few minutes walk from the main square. It is decorated in the colourful Inca-influenced style of the city and comes equipped with beautiful rooms, a variety of open common areas, and a strong WiFi connection.
All of our accommodations are shared based on double or triple occupancy. The TGT vision is built on ensuring that women from all walks of life are able to experience travel with other women hence why we keep all of our accommodations shared with other girls on the trip. This allows you to get out of your comfort zones and build relationships with other female travellers.
We do our best to enhance our experiences the best way possible and spend months building our itineraries. Our Co-Founders travel to each destination prior to departure to ensure our partners and accommodations are up to par. We take pride in being a tour operator that falls in between affordable and luxury, where some experiences can be luxe while others will be authentic and local.
All of our dining options are balanced between luxe, casual, and local. Daily breakfast will be served at the hotel for your convenience. Lunches and dinners will be a variety of options between on the go, casual, and curated meals. We always host a special welcome dinner on all of our trips. This one is always a surprise and specially curated by our TGT team.
Each meal covers a main plate and a non-alcoholic beverage. Some meals have shared appetizers and starters provided by us. If you wish to order an alcoholic beverage or extra food, you will have to pay for that separately.
We also always take into consideration your dietary restrictions. A few months prior to departure, you will receive your Welcome Package where you will fill out your dietary needs. All of our dining options will have vegetarian and vegan options. You may also request for additional dietary needs.
EXCURSIONS AND TOURS
All of our tours and partners are carefully selected beforehand. All of our tour operators are local and licensed tour companies. We only work with the best!
All excursions and tours are optional on the trip. You are more than welcome to skip out on on any tour if need be, however, we do encourage you to take full advantage of the itinerary that is provided.
In terms of free time, you will have some time to yourself. Most girls take this time to go shopping and spend the day discovering on their own. We offer add-on packages which you can take full advantage of. These options will be provided to you prior to departure.
On this trip we want to show you all the beauty and culture Peru has to offer. We have multiple excursions and experiences planned, all carefully curated just for our tribe. Please note the below itinerary is a sample and subject to change.
DAY 1 - All guests will arrive by private transport and will be taken to our boutique hotel in Cusco. This will be a very relaxed day while we wait for everyone to arrive, spending the afternoon getting to know each other. Once all the girls arrive, we will host a Meet & Greet and a special welcome dinner just for us to try the delicious local cuisine.
DAY 2 - We will start the day early at 8:00am. Our private transportation will pick us up and take us to communities in the Sacred Valley. You will be guided through the ruins above the town and will have a chance to explore the incredible Pisac Market. Then we will have lunch and depart to visit the Ollantaytambo Fortress and Temple of the Sun, a mysteriously built structure with massive 12-foot stones. After visiting the ruins, we will drive to Chincheros, a beautiful colonial village, where we will explore a 17th century colonial church filled with beautiful intricate paintings that was built upon an Inca Temple. As this is an adventure-filled day, we will head back to Cusco for dinner to refuel ourselves.
DAY 3 - We will start our day with a delicious breakfast at the hotel then we will head to explore three beautiful sites. Our first stop will be Maras. Here you will see colonial architecture with incredible facades made of thin stone and lintels with sculptures in bas-relief. We will then drive to Moray where you can explore the incredible, and still mysterious, circular agricultural terraces with complex irrigation systems that are surrounded by stunning mountain scenery. Finally, we will visit the salt mines where you can walk amongst the 3,000 salt pools and watch the salt miners harvesting the salt of the Incas! They have a cute little shop where you can buy some hand-mined Andean salt to take home with you if you wish.
After exploring the salt mines of Salineras, we will have lunch before hopping on the afternoon train to Aguas Calientes for our overnight stay. Upon arrival, we will have a buffet dinner waiting for us. After dinner, we will head to the hot springs for some down time - YAY! We recommend getting in bed early this night as we have a very early morning the next day to see Machu Picchu!
DAY 4 – Rise and Shine! We have a 2:00am wake-up call followed by a very early morning breakfast. This is the day you have all come for, we are headed to Machu Picchu! Get ready for an unforgettable sweep of natural beauty and human artistry, a backdrop of twisting gorge and forested peaks framing the magical city of Machu Picchu. We will spend the morning on a guided tour of the city’s highlight, unfolding the mysteries, history, architecture, flora and fauna of this magical site. In the afternoon, we will head back to Aguas Calientes where we will enjoy lunch before we board our return train. Once we land in Cusco, we will have dinner.
DAY 5 – After breakfast and a relaxed morning, we will visit the famous San Pedro Market for some shopping. If you’re up for it, you can even check out the Cusco Ruins (this is optional). Then we will have some downtime followed by dinner.
DAY 6 – On our last full day, we will enjoy breakfast followed by a closing circle where we will reflect on our trip. Following the circle, we wil head out for a volunteer experience where we will work with a community and non-profit organization followed by a traditional Peruvian dinner and a dance show.
DAY 7 - Sadly, it’s time to say goodbye. We will have breakfast and then head to the airport in our private transportation. We promise you will leave this trip with lasting memories, incredible photos, and a new community of women to lean on!
