Itinerary

Your Sacred Valley Tour will begin with 8:00 am hotel pick-up and 30 minute transfer to northeast valley of Cusco. Upon arrival, you’ll stop to visit alpaca and llama herds grazing in the surrounding grasslands. You’ll have the opportunity to pet and feed the curious animals and learn how local communities maintain the millennia old Andean tradition of staining the wool with natural dyes found in the surrounding hills and valleys.

You’ll stop at Pisac for your first encounter with Inca ruins. The ruins sit on top of a hill overlooking the valley. They include scientific, religious, and day-to-day structures, demonstrating the technological, cultural, and social sophistication of the massive empire.  Here, you’ll explore the Temple of the Sun, public baths, ceremonial alters, and aqueducts and water fountains.

You’ll continue onward through the spectacular landscape to arrive at Urubamba province. Here, you’ll stop for a traditional lunch before traveling to the Ollantaytambo Inca site.

This community is particularly important because it is considered a living Inca archaeological site. The small mountain town was an Inca stronghold during Spanish conquest, and is still home to locals who live and thrive within and around the archaeological site. It is home to well-preserved ruins and a water temple.

You’ll end your day in the community of Chincheros. Here, you’ll wander through the stunning stone streets continuously maintained since the height of the Inca empire. You’ll also come across breathtaking colonial houses and learn about the history of Spanish colonization and indigenous resistance in and around the region.

You’ll arrive back in Cusco by 18:30 pm.
