What You Can Expect

Sacred Valley, Pisac and Ollantaytambo Full-Day Tour from Cusco

Sacred Valley, Pisac and Ollantaytambo Full-Day Tour from Cusco

Travel back in time to the Sacred Valley of the Incas with a day that begins in Pisac. This native town was once where “exchange transactions” took place. In this type of transaction, customers would exchange one good for another instead of using currency. Visit the market of Pisac where you can purchase beautifully crafted products hand-made by the locals.

On Sunday, the main attraction is a mass celebrated in Quechua and conducted in Spanish. It is attended by the mayors and their attendants who play traditional musical instruments called "pututos."

Afterwards, you'll enjoy a typical Peruvian lunch (included in price) before visiting the fortress of Ollantaytambo and its main attraction, the Temple of the Sun. Built using massive stones, each one approximately 12 feet (3.5m) tall, this temple was used as a fortress during the time of the Incan civil war.

This was a very interesting tour but somewhat physically challenging for someone with weak/bad knees. Nonetheless, I recommend this tour.

compré esta excursión través de Viator.
Era muy buena elección y aún más cuando nuestro guía LUIS, fue excelente durante toda la excursión.
He leído sobre el corto tiempo dejados en las otras excursiones mercado de Pisac, pero el tiempo era suficiente para ver y comprar algunas cosas.
El almuerzo era genial en este caso fue en el patio del hotel Sonesta sagrado Valle.
Luego continuaremos hacia las ruinas de Ollantaytambo, y creo que antes o después Machu Pichu, vale la pena conocer.
El regreso fue muy agradable, hablando de las costumbres de los habitantes de la zona.
Una excelente excursión. Recomendable 100.

Jose was amazing! I wasn't sure how this tour would end up. But we actually had such a good day. The lunch alone, at this beautiful place was worth all the money we spent for the excursion.
