Experience the best of the prime archaeological sites of the Inca Empire with our local English speaking tour guide on this Sacred Valley Tour from the city of Cusco. Just as the trip to Rainbow Mountain, full day trip to Sacred Valley of the Incas is popular.
The valley played an important role during Inca civilization. It was home to different royal palaces, fortresses and agricultural terraces. Infact, this tour is a good introduction to Inca civilization before your trip to Machu Picchu.
On this day trip from Cusco, we will be visiting prime sites – Chinchero, Ollantaytambo and Pisac.
This is a small village closer to the city of Cusco. Among all sites in the Sacred Valley, Chinchero has the most fertile soil. The white washed church that stands today was once a Royal Palace of Pachacutec. On conquering Chinchero, Spanish invaders demolished it and built the church on its remains.
Chinchero is also home to Andean textile weavers. Our professional guide will be introducing you to the traditional method of knitting.
This charismatic town is a perfect living example of Incas town planning. Ollantaytambo snuggles between two hills. Each of these hills houses an archeological complex.
The fortress here was the most sacred site to Incas. When the Spanish invaded Ollantaytambo in 1537 this sacred site was transformed into a deadly battle ground.
Today, this is the point where you will be boarding the train to Machu Picchu and Inca Trail.
Pisac is a notable site. The complex here is massive and is just second to Machu Picchu. Pisac is also popular for the weekend market. Local farmers and craftsmen from the neighbouring villages gather here to sell their produce.
We offer this Sacred Valley tour from Cusco both as a private tour and in a small group.
