Sacred Valley of the Incas Tour

The area of the valley between Pisac and Ollantaytambo is known as the Sacred Valley of the Incas. On this tour we will drive through the mountains to the "Sacred Valley of the Incas" - which held great significance in Inca Culture. The Valley has a milder climate than Cusco and we will see a succession of picturesque villages, agricultural terraces, and many archeological sites.

This tour is the "Traditional" or Classic Tour, that is designed to see all of the Sacred Valley in one action packed within the day! If you have more time, we recommend you an overnight stay in the Sacred Valley (in Ollantaytambo or Urubamba) and  to soak up some of the relaxed atmosphere.

We will stop on the way to have a classic view of the Urubamba valley, with crops dressing the mountains like carpets. We will arrive to the colourful market of Pisac, where we will have free time to interact with the local craftsmen or to purchase their hand-made souvenirs; afterwards we drive to the archaeological site of Pisac, where we may enjoy the great and unique ancient tombs, terraces, watch towers and the religious area. After time to enjoy the stunning sight, we continue towards the village of Urubamba for lunch.  After lunch we are going to head to Ollantaytambo where we will explore the Inca Ruins, we then head back to visit the colonial churh of Chinchero and the Inca ruins and then back to Cusco.


Pisac Market & Ruins

The town of Pisac is an important archaeological site in the region of Cusco.
There is a colourful market on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays in the morning.
Here we experience a vibrant atmosphere of communities, traditions and bartering. There are many handicrafts and textiles made in true pre-Columbian style to purchase. Every Sunday there is also a procession of the mayors, who at around 9h30 go to church to attend the traditional Mass held in Quechua.


It is here in this most beautiful, strategic spot, 60 kilometres from Cusco, that the Inca Pachacutec built his fortress of Ollantaytambo. It is a beautiful setting and the hills that surround it hide some of the most impressive ruins in the Valley.
It contains structures such as the Temple of the Sun, the Royal Hall, the Incahuatana and the Baños de la Princesa (Princess Baths).
This site is one of the few places where the Spaniards lost a battle during the conquest.


The remains of what was the royal hacienda of Inca Tupac Yupanqui, as well as a beautiful colonial temple built on Inca foundations. 

There is also a Sunday market here, although it attracts fewer tourists than Pisac. You can find many handicrafts and local produce here.
