What people are saying about Pisac

Highly recommend this tour for sacred valley. The tour was well organized from the start to finish. Pick-up location, timing, tour plans and drop-off were well communicated. Lunch was good. Our tour guide - Mijael was very knowledgeable, fluent in English and friendly. The roads to moray and maras salt mine wasn't paved and was bumpy. However, the van organized was so comfortable and suspension was good. My husband has a bad back and he had no problems after the whole day tour.

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.

Wonderful day trip! Our guide and reaver were wonderful. Great way to see a good bit of the sacred valley in a day. Absolutely beautiful!
