Highlights Sacred Valley Tour

The Sacred Valley of Cusco is full of Inca ruins and historical sites. Its stunning backdrop of beautiful natural scenery makes it easily attractive to explorers and history lovers alike.

Among the most outstanding places are Ollantaytambo, one of the best preserved Inca towns in Peru, built on the side of a hill that offers privileged views, and the Inca agricultural terraces of Moray, which are extraordinary ring shaped constructions that form stone terraces built in the natural depressions of the earth.

The other most visited Inca sites in the Sacred Valley are Pisac and Chinchero.

Itinerary 

Sacred Valley Full Day Tour

At 8.30am, we pick you up from your hotel and take you to the start of the tour. We travel from Cusco, past Saqsaywaman over the mountains towards the Sacred Valley.

We descend 1500 feet to the valley floor, where we find ourselves by the sacred Urubamba River and the village of Pisac. In Pisac, we stop to visit a traditional market,  where you can browse and buy some local souvenirs if desired. We will spend about 30 minutes here.

Then, we drive up to the ruins of Pisac. Here, we explore the extensive ruins whilst enjoying stunning views over the valley. You will be given a guided tour of the Citadel of Pisac, in which we will see temples, homes, altars, carvings, tunnels, caves and the famous Intihuatana, “The hitching post of the sun”. We have about 90 minutes to explore the ruins.

For those who would prefer to spend more time in the market instead of visiting the ruins, advise your guide so he can organize a time and place to pick you up when returning  through the market.

We continue on towards Urubamba, where we make a stop  for lunch. A 30 minute drive takes us to Ollantaytambo, which is surrounded by the sacred
mountains. Here, we will spend about an hour. In Ollantaytambo, we get further exposure to Incan constructions, mainly the amazing temple of the sun, enormous blocks of rock perfectly carved and polished, stone water fountains, stairs and terraces. We also get to see the beauty of the local people in their traditional dress surrounded by the sacred mountains and Valley of Patacancha and Willoq. On our return, we make a  visit to the famous church and archaeological site in Chincheros.

We return to Cusco at about 6:30-7pm.
