The pickup was according to the previous discussion. First you arrive Pisac town with an unnecessary stop to a jewellery shop where you can buy some stuff (of course if you like these things it might be interesting). After 45 mins. you will go to Pisac archeological site where you will spend 1 hour, however it was not enough (we would have appreciated more time there). Then next is Urubamba where you will have lunch, however the food was not delicious at all and you need to pay even for water. Then you will go to Ollantaytambo to the archeological site, which would have been amazing, but we arrived there around 15h and the sun lights were catastrophe to enjoy the site and take pictures. Finally, you will arrive to Chinchero for another unnecessary stop. Our guide was enthusiastic and very nice but her english was hardly understandable and very basic which made the whole tour unenjoyable. It was a long trip and without the unnecessary stops and with better lunch, could have been better.
