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.

LOVED our guide for this tour!!!! He was a great story teller and made the day so fabulous!! The scenery was amazing and the history was captivating! Lunch was included and was incredibly delicious and we all left stuffed!! The markets of Pisac and the ruins in Ollantaytambo were so much fun and the drive thru Sacred Valley was incredibly picturesque. The only thing I wished for different was more time : I had an exceptional day!!

It just wasn't very well thought out. Too much time at a market that sells the same junk they sell everywhere and not enough time at Ollantaytambo. Lots of shuffling of tourists to various hotels. Not impressed. Wouldn't waste a day of my vacation on this one.

I took this tour with my 20 year old daughter and we had an awesome time. We had a small group of 6 total. The tour and (especially) guide were very good. The lunch was a very nice surprise at a beautiful hotel. Personally, the only negative was the time spent shopping in Pisac. I'm not much of a shopper. I would recommend this tour.

Honestly was not a good day what so ever. We were picked up early and from the get go didn't seem to start well with our tour guide barely saying a word to us more than hello. After picking up all the passengers in what was quite a hectic manner we set off and again the tour guide barely said a word of welcoming with little dialogue throughout the journey. We arrived at an Alpaca enclosure which was amazing but again the tour guide was pretty terrible with little information and constantly on his phone. Throughout the day we changed coaches/Minibuses at least 5 times it was pretty hard to keep track and each time there was no information as to why. On the way to lunch our coach was pulled over as our driver didn't have a driving license which delayed us by 20 minutes and in all the number of delays throughout the day and just waiting around was ridiculous, with organisation being diabolical. The actual stop offs on the tour and lunch were really good but the lack of organisation was terrible. To top the whole day off after only being able to spend a mere 1 hour at Ollantaytambo the only place where admission fees applied we then set off back and our coach broke down...

Would really not recommend this tour was terrible and in total we were out for almost 11 hours with only 3 hours and 45 minutes of actual activities with 1 hour of this having been a lunch stop.

Even though you do not visit the Saqsayhuaman ruins, you are in Saqsayhuaman park and riding free with the wind in your hair overlooking stunning views. I really enjoyed this tour. We visited a small ruin called the Temple of the Moon and Spirit Mountain. My guide Grimaldo was great! There was only one other girl on my tour so instead of being on a tourist tour it really felt like I was just hanging out with friends.

It was a good one! Love the lunch we had and the explanation our tour guide presented.

Great tour! We were picked up promptly and they confirmed with our hotel the night before. The lunch location was excellent a BEAUTIFUL hotel and the tour guide was great.

My only suggestions for improvement would be less time at the Pisac market and better audio on the bus as it was hard to hear the guide's commentary when driving.

Regardless, I would do this tour with this company again in a heartbeat.

The trip was great. Robinson is an excellent tour guide. Excellent price, and phenomenal lunch buffet- beautiful setting and great food. I left my Kindle on the tour bus- one phone call from the hotel and it was returned to me the next day at 430AM on the next tour. And Sacred Valley is a must see before Machu Picchu. People on board made the trip even more fun. Do this!!
