  • The tour of the Sacred Valley of the Incas is a mandatory tour in your visit to Peru, amazing places, ruins and impressive places! We did the tour arriving in Cusco for two days to go we acclimatised to the altitude, which is a little less high than Peru, and was the best decision. Although the climb to the ruins if it is a little heavy and the height, feels no one in my group had no problem, nothing that he does not eliminate stand up and rest a little. We had seen here recommendations visit the Valley first sacred before Machu Picchu that then not is you would do such spectacular places and seems to me a good recommendation. Every place that you get, you becomes better than the last! Excellent!
