Description

Classic Sacred Valley Tour Cusco extends from Pisac in the south, to beyond Ollantaytambo in the north. You will find yourself surrounded by majestic snowcapped peaks of the Vilcanota mountain range, a scene of extraordinary beauty.

One can observe the remains of thousands of cultivation terraces as well as the Sacred river of Wilcamayu (or Urabamba) winding its way along this fertile valley. Here we will find many archaeological ruins, including those at Pisac, Ollantaytambo and Chinchero, each with its own unique character.

The tour takes around 10 hours, in other words a full day. We highly recommend that you take this journey while you are in Cusco.

The pickup will be from your hotel in Cusco where we will board our transport, heading for the Sacred Valley. We will tour all the key sites of the valley including Pisac, Yucay, Ollantaytambo and Chinchero.

First we will make a stop at the experimental site of Awana Cancha where we will be able to see the different species of South American Camelid, such as the Alpaca, Llama and Vicuña.

We will also learn how the fibers of the Alpaca are treated and dyed to make the different cloths.

In Pisac we will first take a look at the archaeological site and then the picturesque traditional market. The next stop will be for lunch in Urubamba, after which we will continue toward Ollantaytambo, a small site replete with very well-preserved Inca architecture.

This is said to be the last Inca city to be built, but which was left incomplete.

On the way back we will stop at Chinchero to see the market and archaeological site, before finally returning to Cusco,  where we conclude this wonderful trip.
