We finished off our 7 month adventure with a day tour in the Sacred Valley. Firstly, it doesn't really do it justice. One day is whirlwind but it is enough to give you a flavour of Incan ways or deepen your interest further if you're coming off the back of Machu Picchu like we were.  We managed to cram in... More

Nestled between Cusco and Machu Pichu, the Scared Valley is one of the loveliest places on this earth. Accessible on by car it is recommended to hire a driver / tour guide. Many Inca ruins to visit.

A day group tour made this a great experience for us Cuzco first timers. The valley is beautiful, mountains imposing (glimpses of glaciers), interesting farming communities, markets, road side selling. Pisac is an absolute highlight...Inca technology, religion astronomy and spectacular views!

Percy Salas Alfaro spent three days with us. Two taking us to Inca sites from Cusco and then he drove to Ollantaytambo to take us to Moray and Salineras. He is extremely knowledgeable, reliable, fun and an all round nice guy. I was there with my 18-year-old daughter who also loved him. He has a van so he can accommodate... More

The Sacred Valley is special in so many ways whether it is the cultural, history, peoples, agricultural systems and it needs more than just a couple of days as part of a Cusco and Machu Picchu trip. We had a few days which helped us orientate ourselves and then came back for a return visit after exploring other parts of... More

If you wish to visit Machu Pichum first you MUST visit the sacred valley. You will not undestand Machu Pichu unless you deepen your knowledge about the Incas. The sacred Valley is a wonderful starter for this pilgrimage !

If you are over Cusco way - you just have to arrange a day trip through the Sacred Valley. So much to see and not only the historical sites but the views, farming communities and scenery. Just gorgeous. If you do arrange a tour make sure you ask your guide (or hire locals like I did) to take you to... More

I like going to Sunday markets in my travels, so I stayed an extra day in Cusco just to go to the Pisca Sunday Market. We took a local bus from Cusco for 10 Peruvian sol per person to the market. It was about an hour ride. It was neat riding with the locals who were accustomed to packing in... More

This is a great trip. We had to make it in our way to Machu Picchu, but just traveling this beautiful sacred valley is exhilarating. If you're blessed with good health you can do this trip by foot. It is only four days walking from Cusco to "Aguas Calientes", and according to people who did this trip, it is an... More
