Our new 1 day tour focuses on the famous archeological site of Sacsayhuaman, and the Inca Village of Pisac, with it impressive Incan Ruins above the city. Sacsayhuaman with its impressive Inca architecture dominates the northeastern part of the city of Cusco next to the Cristo Blanco Cross that shines over the city of Cusco 24 hours a day. We also explore the archeological sites of Q’enqo, Puca Pucará and Tambomachay, which are located on the way to the Sacred Valley and Pisac.

The Inca Village of Pisac is one of the largest pre-Columbian style handicraft and textile markets in the region of Cusco and the archeological ruins of Pisac are considered to be one of the finest remaining Inca archeological sites in the country. The Inca tunnel and the Sacred Temple Complex are constructed from exquisitely carved pink granite.  You will also explore one of the biggest Inca cemeteries with more than 2000 tombs and admire the incredible farming terraces carved into the mountain. At the colorful Inca market in Pisac, you will be able to appreciate a mixture of colors and Inca culture and tradition. You will have plenty of opportunities to test your bartering skills, interact with the local artisans and purchase their hand-made souvenirs.


Machu Picchu was recognized as a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 1983. UNESCO has been concerned with the increase of visitors to Machu Picchu within the last few years and worries that these crowds are causing damage. They have established new regulations for 2019 to reduce visitor traffic within this archaeological complex.

These new regulations took effect on January 1, 2019. All visitors are now limited to 4 hour visiting sessions. Tickets to Machu Picchu are now divided into three daily sessions: early morning (6AM – 9AM), late morning (9AM – 12PM) and early afternoon (12PM – 3PM). Within these sessions, visitors must choose a specific hour to visit. This is to regulate and reduce visitor traffic within the citadel– each hour is limited to 600 visitors.

The new regulations will have a direct impact on: Huayna Picchu and Machu Picchu Mountain (not to be confused with the citadel itself). In order to enjoy your tour of the citadel and hike the additional mountains, you will need to purchase an extra entrance ticket to the ruins extending your time allowed inside. This means that Huayna Picchu tickets will go up from $35 per person to $75 per person

All tours include the entrance to Machu Picchu but, in order, to hike Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu Mountain, you will need to purchase an additional Machu Picchu entrance ticket with the Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu permit, which will cost a total of $75 per person. These new regulations will come into effect starting January 1, 2019 and will apply towards all tours. If you have booked Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu Mountain with us and do not want to pay the higher fee, please contact us at:

These are new regulations that took effect starting January of 2019, keep visiting our page and social sites for more information or updates on these regulations.
