Sacred Valley of the Incas, Cusco Region

Once at the heart of the Inca Empire, Sacred Valley of the Incas plays home to many of the region's most popular archeological sites, cities, and places to visit. Grab your boots and trek through the area to get an up-close look at the mountain environment via the network of hiking trails and paths. Explore the rugged mountain valley to get a glimpse of Inca fortifications and settlements like Pisac, Moray, Tipon, and Ollantaytambo, which feature terraced hillsides and imposing stone citadels. The valley also boasts a number of quiet villages and colonial-era gems; Cusco is perhaps the best known, but plenty of smaller villages featuring markets and sights of their own line the valley's length.

  • One of the best tours of the trip... Many places, customs and Inca cities to meet... Pisac, Ollyntatambo was amazing, Chincheros and the local textiles... We know a little bit about the local culture.... Many places for shopping too...

  • Beautiful and mind refreshing scenery. One must surely visit such a place
  • Or pay a good recommended agency or do it yourself, you can also contract a private tour. Don't pay a cheap 50( agency) , 70 soles ( in your hotel) tour to take you to the sacred valley. They promise a tour and the "Guide" just will explain in the archaeologic areas, the most of the trip they just will name one or two places, or they will not explain ANYTHING!!! . I took a "tour" in the main plaza and it happened!!! Besides they make you run... Take a bus and do it yourself...do it in your own pace!! Ollantaytambo and Pisac were impressive and believe me you will wish to stay there more time than a regular "Tour" offer you.
