During this Sacred Valley day tour, you will get to know all the must-visit spots in one day, an exclusive itinerary that no other agency offers.
You will find out more about the Inca's history and why the Sacred Valley was such an important political, agricultural and spiritual hotspot for them. In comparison to the conventional tours that are characterized by large groups, few time spent at the sites and visiting only some sites, our small-group tour of 2-8 people guarantees a personal experience.
We cover all the important sites of the Sacred Valley, such as Chinchero (instead of Pisac for now due to construction works on the road to Pisac that would result in delays in visiting the other sites), the archaeological site of Moray, the salt mines of Maras and Ollantaytambo and stay around 1 hour at each site. This gives you enough time to discover the most important stories and to take stunning photos with your partner, family or friends.
At the end, you get the option to stay in Ollantaytambo to take the train to Aguas Calientes afterwards or to return to Cusco with your guide.
