What You Can Expect

Sacred Valley Community Small Group Tour from Cusco

Pisac Market

Departing Cusco, you'll head to the small town of Pisac, located in the heart of the Sacred Valley on the Urubamba river. The Sacred Valley was very important for the Inca Empire as it was widely known for its rich soil and production of maize. Located a short distance away from the sacred city of Machu Picchu, the Sacred Valley contains the remains of great citadels, scientific stations and cities built by the Incas. Pisac is a great place to explore Andean life up close as it is home to a bustling craft market where the barter system is still an accepted method for buying goods.

Gain an insight on the Incas' traditions and culture and explore the market and maybe barter for a few items yourself before heading out of town to continue with the tour. Along the way, take in the spectacular landscape of the region. Communities are still living in a very traditional way, cultivating wheat, potatoes, corn, beans and quinoa as a means of survival. The region is home to 3000 varieties of potatoes and is essential to the Andean cuisine.

Stop in Urubamaba for lunch (not included), before visiting at a chicheria where you can sample the traditional local drink, chicha (corn beer) and play traditional games. Then, visit the near by Ollantaytambo archaeological site for an insight into the past. Make our way back to Cusco through more incredible landscape, land of stories and anecdotes that your local guide will share with you.
