To Cusco and beyond...

James, Veronica and I have just returned back to Lima after spending 4 days in Cusco. Upon arriving in Cusco we were quickly picked up by Rene a local taxi driver, who would become our trip planner. He took us to a reasonably cheap hostel and then promptly organised our entire trip, which was good as it saved us a day of trying to organise it ourselves. He advised us on the best days to do things so we went along with his suggestion. We bought a 10 day multiple site tourist ticket, which gave us access to 16 different tourist sites.
So on Monday 25th we took our ticket and hopped on a tour bus with our guide for the day Willie and visited some old Inka ruins which were in a fairly close proximity to Cusco City.
On Tuesday 26th we took our ticket again and hopped on another tour bus with our guide for the day Lucho to some more Inka ruins and some markets where we could buy some souvenirs if we wanted to. This tour was a whole day trip.
On Wednesday 27th we started the day at 4:30 with breakfast as we had to catch a train at 6:00 to go to Machu Picchu. It was a 4 hour train ride to the town of Aguas Caliente (Hot Waters). Then a 5 minute walk to catch a bus for a 30 minute drive up to Machu Picchu. When we got there we were met by our tour guide Alberto, who spoke reasonably good English. The tour of Machu Picchu was 2 hours long with another hour afterwards for free time to take photos. We then made our way back down to Aguas Caliente for lunch and to catch the train back to Cusco. This trip was separate to the multi site ticket.
Today we had nothing planned so we grabbed our multi site ticket and used up what we had left and looked around local Museums in Cusco city, before getting on the plane and heading back to Lima.
