ITINERARY

8:00 am: Hotel pick-up

You will have an early start with a visit to the Inca’s Sacred Valley – Pisac. On your way there, you will stop to have a guided short tour of the beautiful Urubamba River.

You will visit breathtaking Inca sites and vibrant markets where you can buy handcrafts and souvenirs. Afterwards, you will head to Urubamba to have a delicious buffet lunch.

Your next stop will be Ollaytantambo, known for its stunning ceremonial fortress. You will be able to climb the steps up to the top of the fortress and learn of its history.

After visiting the sites in Ollantaytambo, we will head to the town of Chinchero, our last stop. Chinchero is located 18 miles from Cusco city with wonderful views of the Urubamba mountain range. Not many people visit it but it sure has a number of interesting spots you wouldn’t want to miss such as: great Inca ruins (aqueducts and terraces and Inca stone work), a church built by the Spaniards that dates from the 1600s on top of what used to be the remains of an Inca palace. Its main and most unique attractions are its weaving demonstrations:

Talented local women dressed in their traditional clothes will explain step-by-step how they produce different colours for the wool they use to make their beautiful textiles as well as how they wash them with natural products. You can shop a range of their products at the end of their demonstrations.

Transportation from the Sacred Valley to Cusco city and hotel drop off at approximately 5pm.

FRANCOIS – SACRED VALLEY TOUR

““My wife and I had a wonderful time in Peru. We had a good experience planning and booking with Into Peru. They had some really good recommendations and planned a seamless and worry-less trip from start to finish. We visited Lima, Cusco, Arequipa and Ica and loved them all. I particularly recommend Cusco and the Sacred Valley – we loved it.”

Machu Picchu and Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain were both excellent and so glad to tick them off the bucket list! The food in Lima was fantastic, we loved aji de gallina and picarones particularly. Can’t recommend Into Peru highly enough, they were so quick to answer any queries, the tour guides and service in Peru was outstanding – 12 perfect days. Merci beaucoup!”
