What You Can Expect

Sacred Valley, Pisac and Ollantaytambo Full-Day Tour from Cusco

Sacred Valley, Pisac and Ollantaytambo Full-Day Tour from Cusco

Get up close and personal with the culture of the ancient Inca civilization as you explore the main archaeological sites of the Sacred Valley near the empire’s former capital of Cusco. History lovers are sure to delight in this chance to explore this beautiful mountain valley, harboring a wealth of important Inca sites.
Start your day with a morning pickup from your hotel in Cusco, continuing first to the historic city of Pisac. The city was once known as a key trading post, offering a central location for Inca traders to barter for goods. The tradition persists to this day at Pisac’s well-known market, offering you the opportunity to browse for a wealth of handcrafted textiles and souvenirs made by the local community.
If you happen to be visiting Pisac on a Sunday, you’ll also get to witness the town’s famous mass, conducted in both Quechua and Spanish. Observe the town’s collection of dignitaries in attendance, and watching as they play the pututo, a traditional musical instrument.
Take a break after finishing your time in Pisac with a tasty lunch of Peruvian specialties, continuing to the Fortress of Ollantaytambo to discover its impressive Temple of the Sun. During the Incan civil war this imposing structure’s 12-foot (3.5-m) stones served as a key defensive barrier.
After finishing your exploration of Ollantaytambo, continue back to Cusco, where you’ll be dropped off at your hotel.

Really enjoyed this tour. Our guide Eloy was knowledgeable and friendly and gave us all the information we needed through the trip. Lots of great sights to see and they managed to keep us ahead of the curve - always 100s of tourists arriving after us, so we got to see places before they filled up. Also an impressive and varied buffet lunch - the best included lunch I’ve ever had on a tour.

LOVED our guide for this tour!!!! He was a great story teller and made the day so fabulous!! The scenery was amazing and the history was captivating! Lunch was included and was incredibly delicious and we all left stuffed!! The markets of Pisac and the ruins in Ollantaytambo were so much fun and the drive thru Sacred Valley was incredibly picturesque. The only thing I wished for different was more time : I had an exceptional day!!

I took this tour with my 20 year old daughter and we had an awesome time. We had a small group of 6 total. The tour and (especially) guide were very good. The lunch was a very nice surprise at a beautiful hotel. Personally, the only negative was the time spent shopping in Pisac. I'm not much of a shopper. I would recommend this tour.

Even though you do not visit the Saqsayhuaman ruins, you are in Saqsayhuaman park and riding free with the wind in your hair overlooking stunning views. I really enjoyed this tour. We visited a small ruin called the Temple of the Moon and Spirit Mountain. My guide Grimaldo was great! There was only one other girl on my tour so instead of being on a tourist tour it really felt like I was just hanging out with friends.

The trip was great. Robinson is an excellent tour guide. Excellent price, and phenomenal lunch buffet- beautiful setting and great food. I left my Kindle on the tour bus- one phone call from the hotel and it was returned to me the next day at 430AM on the next tour. And Sacred Valley is a must see before Machu Picchu. People on board made the trip even more fun. Do this!!
