Itinerary: Sacred Valley of the Incas Full day
Day 1: Cusco – Sacred Valley of the Incas – Cusco
We will start our tour at 7:30 am, Leaving behind the city of Cusco, our bus will take us to the Sacred Valley of the Incas, passing Sacsayhuaman and Tambomachay along the way. After crossing the high plains, the road descends towards the picturesque valley town of Pisaq, on the banks of the sacred Urubamba River. After plenty of time to wander through the market and pick up some souvenirs, we will drive up to the Inca ruins of Pisaq.
Here, the Incas built an extensive settlement composed of temples, residential areas, a tunnel and agricultural terracing, all with a commanding view over the Sacred Valley, stretched out far below. After visiting the ruins of Pisaq we will drive to the quiet town of Urubamba for lunch.
After an excellent meal in Urubamba, it will be time to make the 30-minute drive through the Sacred Valley to the village of Ollantaytambo. Here, where the Sacred Valley narrows, the Incas created a major ceremonial and administrative center around a massive temple that was dedicated to their pantheon of gods. It is common to see local people wandering the streets of Ollantaytambo in their typical dress, largely unchanged for more than four hundred years. After visiting the village and temple of Ollantaytambo, it will be time to return to Cusco, where you will be escorted to your hotel.
