SACRED VALLEY FULL-DAY
DAY 1: Cusco - Sacred Valley - Pisac - Urubamba - Ollantaytambo Cusco:
At 8:00am you will meet at the office. In a tourist van, you will travel from Cusco over the mountains toward the Sacred Valley. You will descend to the valley floor starting in the village of Pisac where you will visit a traditional market, and you can buy some local souveniers. Then you will continue in the van up to explore the extensive ruins of Pisac with stunning views over the valley. On the guided walk into the Citadel of Pisac you can observe temples, residences, altars, channels, carvings, tunnels and caves.
You will then continue on to Urubamba where you stop for lunch. (There is an optional buffet lunch you can include or you can enjoy the personal food you brought along). Following the lunch break, you will travel another 30 minutes before arriving to Ollantaytambo. Here you are surrounded by the sacred mountains, where you will again discover the magnificence of the Incan constructions, the amazing Temple of the Sun, enormous blocks of rock perfectly carved and polished, stone water fountains, stairs, terraces and the beauty of the local people in their traditional dress. On our return, we quickly visit a textile shop, and an archeological site (if time permits) in Chinchero, arriving to Cusco at approximately 6:30-7:00pm. The drop-off point will be at Plaza San Francisco (near the Plaza de Armas).
