Full description

During this Sacred Valley day tour, go to the must-visit sites of Cusco and have a chance to try traditional Incan beer. Get picked up from your hotel in Cusco's city center and head to your first stop, Mirador Taray. 

Take in the spectacular views of the Andes and the Sacred Valley to prepare for your day of discovery. 

Continue to the town of Pisac, the site of a popular market. See how locals dye alpaca wool with natural plants of the region. Visit the archaeological site and see its terraces, Incan cemeteries, and royal buildings. 

Afterward, move on to Moray to learn about the history of the Incas and wonder at their mysterious circular terraces.

Head to the nearby village of Maras and learn about its history as a center for salt production at the Maras Salt Mines. Admire the unique quilt work of over 3,000 salt ponds spilling into the Sacred Valley. From here, go to Urubamba and enjoy a buffet lunch at a local restaurant.

Continue with a drive along the Urubamba River towards the town of Ollantaytambo to visit the ruins. Marvel at the remarkable Incan architecture built during the Incan Empire's heyday. In addition to the ruins, see an amazing rock formation that represents the Incan god of Wiracocha.

After your time at the ruins, choose to return to Cusco with your guide or to stay in Ollantaytambo so you can continue your personal travels to Machu Picchu.

Great day trip to see the main attractions of the Sacred Valley. We had a great group and the tour guide was also superb, friendly, very informative and always happy to help/take pics for us. The buffet was super tasty. They left us in Ollantaytambo so we could continue with our trip to Machu Pichu.

We had a great time exploring those places. Since there were only 2 couples including us for this trip, we were able to bring our huge luggage from Cusco throughout the trip which ended in Ollantaytambo. We didn't return to Cusco. Our guide, Yoelin (if I'm not mistaken) was attentive. Although he was still learning English, we don't have much issues communicating with him.

It was perfect! One of the best days we had in Peru! Amazing places and we had the best guide ever, Humberto, to whom we want to thank. Really well informed, passionate, pacient, funny, just the best. The lunch was included and was really good. Also, the mini bus was comfortable and clean. We really recommend this trip.
