Sacred Valley of the Incas

Description

Sacred Valley of the Incas This tour travels the length of the Sacred Valley, stopping in the key sites of interest of Pisac, Urubamba, Ollantaytambo and Chinchero. However, first we stop in the experimental centre of Awana Cancha, where we can view the different types of Andean animal, like the alpaca, llama and vicuña, as well as understand how different techniques are used with alpaca wool to make different goods. In Pisac you will be visiting the colorful traditional market and the Incan ruins. In case there is not enough time, the guide will make you choose one of them. 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. If you want to take the same day directly the train to Aguas Calientes, to visit the next day Machu Picchu, then you can stay in Ollantaytamba and reserve one of the last trains leaving there.
