What You Can Expect

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

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

Get up close and personal with the culture of the ancient Inca civilization as you explore the main archaeological sites of the Sacred Valley near the empire’s former capital of Cusco. History lovers are sure to delight in this chance to explore this beautiful mountain valley, harboring a wealth of important Inca sites.
Start your day with a morning pickup from your hotel in Cusco, continuing first to the historic city of Pisac. The city 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, continuing 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.
After finishing your exploration of Ollantaytambo, continue back to Cusco, where you’ll be dropped off at your hotel.

After an initial difficulty finding out where to meet we were with Airbnb and not in a hotel, the day the proceeded perfectly. Both visits were fascinating and we had an excellent meal inbetween. The guide was very knowledgeable

The guide was very informative and spoke English very well. Unfortunately, as we drove along, the ambient road/vehicle noise sometimes made it difficult to hear everything he said. The tour covered a lot of miles/km, with spectacular scenery, and although the road was often very winding and bumpy, I never had any doubts about the driver's ability and safety-first attitude. The hacienda style buffet lunch spot, Tulupa, included in the tour price was also very nice. It might help if the tour handed out a map of the route and towns involved. Keep in mind it's a full day, from 8am hotel pickup to 5pm drop off. The tour also offered the chance meet other people, which was nice for someone like myself travelling solo. Go for it!

Very strenuous but exciting. Would tell anyone over 65 to evaluate their physical stamina and ability to climb high up. The guid and the total day were absolutely the best - a great value.
