TREKKING MAP Our company specializes in organizing trips through the Sacred Valley and making sure that travelers take with them a unique and unforgettable experience while seeing the valley´s beauty, history, and culture.
In this tour, you will get an opportunity to visit the most important Inca archaeological complexes in the valley, and experience the Andean culture reflected in the art pieces, traditional markets, customs and popular traditions in the towns of Pisac, Ollantaytambo and Chinchero. The warm weather along the valley is another perfect complement to make this tour enjoyable.
the Sacred Valley We will pick you up from your hotel in Cusco at 08:15 AM. From here, we will take a private bus to all of our destinations for the day.
On our way to Pisac, about 30 minutes from Cusco, we will make our first stop at the market of Qorao. Here, locals display their crafts so that you can appreciate their art and buy some beautiful handmade souvenirs for you and your loved ones. You will also have the opportunity during this stop to take photographs of the beautiful landscape of mountains, valleys, and even native animals like llamas!
Afterwards, we will continue heading to “El Mirador Del Valle Sagrado”. This lookout of the valley will give you a perfect opportunity to photograph the Andes mountain range and the Sacred Valley all together. We will then arrive at Pisac to visit its main market and archaeological site. Once finished, we will go to Urubamba and enjoy a delicious buffet lunch of traditional Peruvian dishes.
In the afternoon, we will visit the town of Ollantaytambo to visit its amazing and extensive archaeological site with its royal baths, high terraces, temples, etc. surrounded towering mountain peaks and colorful valleys (plus a view of a faraway glacier)! This town is the most well-preserved layout of a typical, Incan-built city with its narrow, cobbled streets and stone walls. Its conservation allows for the enduring legacy of the Incan people to live on for us today!
On our way back to Cusco, we will make a final stop at the town of Chinchero. Here, we will have the opportunity to visit a beautiful colonial temple known for its mural painting above the entrance way (this temple was built on top of Inca foundations). We will also have the opportunity to see the Incan walls in the town´s plaza.
Finally, we will return to Cusco and arrive at around 18:30 PM.
