The Sacred Valley tour is one of the most recommended and popular in the Cusco region. In the days of the Incas, this fertile valley became an area for the construction of real properties and country houses for the Incas. Because the valley was surrounded by mountains (Apus) which the Incas considered sacred, ceremonial centers and precincts were built for the religious group of the time.
The sacred valley developed great agricultural importance in these fertile lands in which corn was harvested in abundance. Corn was a prestigious crop for the Incas, to make chicha (fermented corn) that the Incas and their subjects consumed in their ceremonial feasts.
On this full day of touring the Sacred Valley, you will visit impressive constructions of cities such as Pisac, Ollantaytambo that still work in their water sources from the rivers of the mountains as well as Chinchero. The tour of the Sacred Valley will take you through the local villages and meet the local people with their traditional costumes, which will add an unforgettable experience to your trip including a stop for the Buffet Lunch in the cozy town of Urubamba.
Some tourists choose to finish the tour in Ollantaytambo to make their trip by train to Machu Picchu. Our company organizes the SACRED VALLEY OF THE INCAS, every day, with the best guides available to provide the best of their knowledge.
You will be picked up from the reception of your hotel between 7.30 hrs – 8:00 hrs. approximately.
