Sacred Valley Full Day Tour Itinerary

Sacred Valley Tour begins at 8:00 am. We will pick you up from your hotel lobby in our private transportation and begin the tour. The Sacred Valley of the Incas was one of the main production points for the richness of Inca lands and is the place where the best grain of maize is produced in all of Peru. You’ll pass different communities until you reach the Awanakancha stop. There will be an exposition of llamas, alpacas, and vicunas in their natural habitat. Afterward, you’ll head over to the Archaeological Center of Pisaq.

Pisaq Inca Site

Pisaq is composed of Inca terraces and Inca architectural structures scattered on slopes. We will pass by the Pisaq Artisan market where barter is still practiced to this day. You’ll also visit Pisaq’s main plaza where they sell handmade handicrafts such as woven textiles, jewelry, musical instruments, souvenirs, and much more. After exploring Pisaq, a one-hour drive in your private transportation will take you to the town of Urubamba where you will have a buffet-style lunch of Andean food. We will then continue our tour to the fortress and citadel of Ollantaytambo where Inca architecture and design is conserved and declared as a cultural patrimony of Peru. We will immerse in countless stories and history of Inca times. Our last stop will be in one of the renowned oldest towns called Chincheros. This small town is known as the city of Rainbow.

It is purely an Inca city that the conquistadors wanted to “civilize” to establish their culture, but never fully achieved to do so. In Chincheros, the past persists stubbornly as if the spirit of an Ancient culture clings and refuses to disappear. You’ll observe firsthand how native people to this day continue to dye their textiles like their Inca ancestors. After various pictures and a wealth of new knowledge, you will head back to Cusco and be dropped off at your hotel around 6:30 pm. This concludes your tour.

Food & Drink

Healthy Organic Gourmet meals in all our Peru Tours

Daily Seasonal Food on each trip and Tours

Peruvian cuisine has only recently exploded onto the international culinary stage, but Peruvians have always been crazy about their nation’s culinary heritage, and they steadfastly cling to the traditional, multiculti flavors of home. Even in the face of modern gastronomic innovation. A range of climates, from high altitude to low, offers an impressive diversity of produce. Yes, that means potatoes over 3800 kinds but also a variety of corn and other grains, to say nothing of the country’s native aji chilies that are often puréed into sauces.

Coffee, Tea, Water, & Assorted Beverages

Every morning and afternoon, before and after your daily hikes you will find hot drinks and snacks in your dining tent.
