Overview

Most visitors to Cusco make a beeline for Machu Picchu, but there’s so much more to see in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. This full-day tour will take you off the beaten track to visit the traditional markets of Pisac, explore the Andean villages of Calca and Urubamba, enjoy lunch at a local restaurant, and admire the Inca ruins of Ollantanytambo. Tour includes hotel pickup and drop-off.
  • Full-day Sacred Valley tour from Cusco
  • Browse for traditional handicrafts at Pisac market
  • Visit the Andean villages of Calca and Urubamba
  • Tuck into a delicious buffet lunch at a local restaurant
  • Marvel at ancient Inca ruins in Pisac, Ollantanytambo, and Chincheros
  • Great-value tour includes lunch, hotel pickup, and round-trip transport
Your tour begins with pickup from your Cusco hotel in time for an 8.45am departure. Admire the views as you climb into the highlands on the around 1-hour journey to Pisac, a lively market town at the heart of the Sacred Valley of the Incas.
Jump out to explore the town and browse the traditional market, where you’ll have chance to mingle with the locals, admire beautiful Peruvian handicrafts, and perhaps purchase some unique souvenirs. Continue into the mountains above the town to see the Pisac ruins, a hilltop Inca citadel, located in a spectacular location above a steep gorge.
Next, stop in the picturesque Andean villages of Calca and Urubamba, where you’ll get a further insight into local life, as well as enjoying a delicious buffet lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch, visit Ollantanytambo, where the ancient ruins include a massive Inca fortress. There’s time to make one more stop, in the Andean village of Chincheros, before setting out on the return journey.
Back in Cusco, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel around 7pm.

Like other reviewers we had problems with information on pick up since we were staying at an AirB and B. Finally after 3 emails and two phone calls, we were told we would be picked up in 5 minutes. After waiting 15 minutes, the driver finally arrived and took us to the tour bus, which we were told was already filled. We were shifted to another tour company and were driven 15minutes to meet the other tour which was already to the road. Not happy with Condetravel that we were booked with.

However the tour company we were passed off to were great. Our tour guide, Angela was amazing!. She was very knowledgeable and Very patient with us. Some of the group lagged behind and she waited for us. I would take a tour with her again. Don't know the tour company she was with but the driver, Carlos and Angela were the best! Thanks for a great, but tiring day.

The whole bus was Spanish speaking except the four of us. The guide was great and said everything in both Spanish and English. The sites we visited were incredible and our knowledgable guide told us all about them. The bus driver was great till the ride back to Cusco, he was driving too fast and carelessly.

The description for this tour has changed since I originally booked it. We were put into a group with many other tourists that were sold similar trips from other companies - but each was sold something slightly different so many were unhappy. The tour was 97-98 in Spanish although the description said the guide would be bilingual. The original description said all entrance fees were included, but when we arrived at the sites, none of the entrance fees were included and it was a surprise to have to pay additional entrance fees. The tour guide liked to stop at tourist trap markets and much too long was wasted at places like that and too little time was spent at the historical sites.

The tour guide, Javier, was knowledgeable, friendly, and did his above and beyond effort to show us the culture, people, and lifestyle of ancient Incas. Thank you, Javier!
