Sacred Valley Tour

The Sacred Valley Tour is one of the most popular tour in the region. The Sacred Valley of the Incas was a crucial area for the Inca empire and it functioned as an agricultural, spiritual and political center for them. Throughout its length, there are many Inca and Pre-Inca sites that can be found, and the Sacred Valley tour visits

the 3 main sites: Chinchero, Pisac and Ollantaytambo. Lasting a full day, you will get to appreciate the fine works of the craftmanship that the Incas produced and see the beautiful scenery of the Sacred Valley. Many tourists opt to do this tour just before their visit to Machu Picchu, as you can choose to finish in Ollantaytambo from where you take the train on to Aguas Calientes (the town at the base of the Machu Picchu complex). The lush Sacred Valley of the Incas is full of cultural and historical places such as:

PISAC (2,970 m.) known for its handicraft market and archaeological site atop a mountain with strategic views along 3 valleys, with many terraces.

OLLANTAYTAMBO (2,800m) one of the original Inca towns still standing today. A picturesque town with original Inca walls, streets and water canals that run along some homes. See the famous Pacarictampu and Inca Princess bath fountain.

CHINCHERO (3,752m) located high up in the Andes, with lovely landscapes, it is believed to have been an important place during the Inca times. It is also believed to have been the birthplace for the mystical rainbow. In the main plaza, you will see the old adobe colonial church built on top of an Inca Temple. On Sundays, you can enjoy an original colorful Indian Market with the locals coming from all around.
