Experience the mystery of the Sacred Valley on a full-day tour from Cusco. Hear about the heritage and present-day agricultural communities of the Incas, learn traditional weaving techniques, visit Pisac market, explore the ruins of Ollantaytambo, and much more.

What to expect?

  • Start your day with a morning pickup from your hotel in Cusco. Begin the tour with a brief stop at the view point of Qorao's town. Continue to Tarai's viewpoint, from where you can really see the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Its landscape, as is usual in Cusco, surprises the traveler, because after long curves and climbs, suddenly the hills open and the valley is displayed in all its breadth. Below, the waters of the Vilcanota or Urubamba river run.

  • Next, head to the historic town of Pisac. The town was once known as a key trading post, offering a central location for Inca traders to barter for goods. The tradition persists to this day at Pisac’s well-known market, offering you the opportunity to browse for a wealth of handcrafted textiles and souvenirs made by the local community. If you happen to be visiting Pisac on a Sunday, you’ll also get to witness the town’s famous mass, conducted in both Quechua and Spanish. Observe the town’s collection of dignitaries in attendance, and watching as they play the pututo, a traditional musical instrument. Take a break after finishing your time in Pisac with a tasty lunch of Peruvian specialties.

  • After lunch, continue to the Fortress of Ollantaytambo to discover its impressive Temple of the Sun. During the Incan civil war, this imposing structure’s 12-foot (3.5-m) stones served as a key defensive barrier. Our last stop is the small rustic town of Chinchero, where there is a great display of Inca architecture. Chinchero is home to the Peruvian weaving and also has a colorful market and a beautiful adobe church sits on its plaza. Finally, after this enriching experience, you’ll be dropped off at your hotel in Cusco.
