Sacred Valley of the Incas (VS1)
This tour travels the length of the Sacred Valley, stopping in the key sites of interest of Pisac, Urubamba, Ollantaytambo and Chinchero. In Pisac you have a choice of visiting either the colorful traditional market or the Incan ruins – your preference must be specified on booking the tour. Our next stop is for lunch in Urubamba, after which we continue our journey to Ollantaytambo.
This small town is filled with well preserved Incan architecture,
boasting the last Incan complex to be built–
in fact they never finished this fortress! En route back to Cusco we will visit the typical market and archeological site at Chinchero.
