Sacred Valley tour

The Sacred Valley tour is one of the most popular tours in the region. The Sacred Valley of the Incas was a crucial area for the Inca Empire and it functioned as both an agricultural, spiritual and political center for them.

Throughout its length there are many Inca and Pre-Inca sites that can be found, and the Sacred Valley tour visits the 2 main sites, Pisac and Ollantaytambo. Lasting a full day, you will get to appreciate the fine works of craftsmanship that the Incas produced and see the beautiful scenery of the Sacred Valley. Many tourists opt to do this tour just before their visit to Machu Picchu, as you can choose to finish in Ollantaytambo from where you take the train on to Aguas Calientes (the town at the base of Machu Picchu). We offer a tour that specifically combines the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu. It is a two-day/1 night tour.

Sacred Valley Tour starts early and head to the high mountain village of Chinchero, famous for its weaving and spectacularly sited at high altitude (3,800m/12,500 ft.) We will visit a weaving house and have a demonstration of dyeing and weaving techniques as well as visiting the famous Chinchero market. From Chinchero, we descend to the base of the Sacred Valley and then onto Ollantaytambo, which features an impressive set of terraces leading from the village center.

We have a buffet lunch in Urubamba before heading to Pisaq – our final stop for the day. In Pisaq we will first the beautiful ruins, built with breathtaking audacity by the Incas and then descend to the market at Pisaq before returning to Cusco, via the ruins at Sacsayhuaman. (If you are short of time this visit might be only concise).

This is a long but rewarding day for those who want to experience the best of the Sacred Valley in a short amount of time.
