  • Wonderful pre- Machu Picchu visit. An excellent opportunity to learn about the Inca culture and technology. 
  • Surprises as took advantage of the cultivation in terraces and as chose them products to plant considering the temperature and humidity of the place.

  • Take the time to do some hiking in the valley when you visit the village and Inca ruins at Ollantaytambo.
