08:30 h. Our customers are picked up from your hotel in Cusco by our representative. Then we start our tour to the Sacred Valley of the Incas. This beautiful valley is composed of numerous rivers which descend through canyons full of greenery, and small valleys. On your way you will visit two of the best Inca architectural remains to be found in the valley.

Pisac.- First we will go to the ruins of Pisac…impressive buildings built in the period of the rise of the Inca Empire. Here we can see the great work achieved by the Incas, through endless agricultural terraces that adorn virtually all the mountains around. In the center of the temple of Pisac, we can observe a intiwatana (solar clock), and fine buildings inhabited by the Inca nobility 500 years ago. After our visit to this ancient Inca citadel, we will visit the modern town of Pisac below, which is located on the right bank of the Urubamba River, and is inhabited almost entirely by the descendants of the Incas. Here visit the Pisac craft market, and we will see how the present people of this place keep the tradition of exchanging their crops and handicrafts, as they did in the past. For those who like to buy souvenirs, this place is definitely one of the best places to do so, with choices ranging from clothes made with alpaca wool, silver and gold jewelry, and hand-crafted items. After shopping there is lunch in a typical restaurant in this town.

ollantaytamboOllantaytambo.- After our delicious lunch we head to the town of Ollantaytambo, where we will visit the beautiful fortress of the same name. Here we cover the most important sectors, and our guide will give us an explanation about this place. The hike to the top of Ollantaytambo is a bit steep so it is recommended to take it easy and go slow. (Bring a bottle of water and wear a hat).
Upon completion of the guided visit to Ollantaytambo, we will return to Cusco. We will be arriving in Cusco at approximately 19:00 pm.
