“Outstanding views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

The views along the valley and the sites and the interesting history, some uphill walking was required at times, but manageable.

“Breathtaking landscapes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

This place is magical! The landscapes are amazing and breathtaking! All the colours and sounds in the nature here are just splendid! We did a horseback riding tour through part of the Sacred Valley, which was just magnificent, and the rest by car. It is really a must do!

“A must do.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

This is really a must do in your life. Seeing all this magic that took place at this sacred location of the Incas is just spectacular.
The guides are very well instructed and, being descendants from the Incas themselves, they manage all the terminology, ancient traditions and modern findings as well.
The only downside: The very small and noisy train you have to take in order to arrive there.

“The Sacred and Lares Valley”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

I have been twice during the end of the wet season in March and it was awesome. There are treks available for all skill levels and interests. BK Tours, Abel has taken great care of us making the hook ups we needed on short notice. The Orchides Hostel has been our operating base and they have clean rooms and quite atmosphere. They really are our go to in Ollantaytambo.
