Sacred Valley of the Incas, Cusco Region

(4.8/5 based on 1,900+ reviews on the web)
Once at the heart of the Inca Empire, Sacred Valley of the Incas plays home to many of the region's most popular archeological sites, cities, and places to visit. Grab your boots and trek through the area to get an up-close look at the mountain environment via the network of hiking trails and paths. Explore the rugged mountain valley to get a glimpse of Inca fortifications and settlements like Pisac, Moray, Tipon, and Ollantaytambo, which feature terraced hillsides and imposing stone citadels. The valley also boasts a number of quiet villages and colonial-era gems; Cusco is perhaps the best known, but plenty of smaller villages featuring markets and sights of their own line the valley's length.

  • The truth, I did not much this tour, travelling almost the whole day, start 07:30 a.m and return 08:30 p.m. The Sacred Valley is a very nice place, you have to visit but long travel for the time in that are in the place. You're going to Ollantaytambo that you have a very nice viewpoint, and there is a craft fair, also go to other nearby towns, but most of the time of the tour spend you traveling.
