Sacred Valley Tour
Sacred Valley Tour was one of the most important places in the Incan Empire. Its climate was beneficial to the development of agriculture and the construction of important cities like Pisac and Ollantaytambo, which we will visit as part of this Sacred Valley Tour.
Highlight: Pisac ruins and market, Inca fortress in Ollantaytambo.
Location: Sacred Valley, Cusco. (Pisac, Urubamba, Ollantaytambo, Chincheros).
Duration: Full day.
Departure Dates: This Sacred Valley Tour we start any day. We offer affordably priced tours for 2 people so that you can depart when it suits you best.
Combos & Upgrades: Combine with one of our treks for a complete Cusco experience, and get a discount off your trek price. Excellent for pre trek acclimatization or combined with other one day treks in the wet season.
At 7.30am, we pick you up from your hotel and take you to the start our sacred valley tour. We travel from Cusco, past Saqsaywaman over the mountains towards the Sacred Valley tour. 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 (45 minutes) 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 quick (30 minute) visit to the famous church and archaeological site in Chincheros. We return to Cusco at about 6:30-7:00 pm and then we end our sacred valley tour.
