Most visitors that come to Peru end up going to Cusco and visiting Machu Picchu. Both destinations are spectacular and relatively easy to visit as most tourist agencies have the two areas well covered even though reservations, particularly for visiting Machu Picchu, must be made...More

A great tour of the Valley. The buildings were incredible - in both the construction and design. Making them earthquake proof, the skills of the stonemasons have to be seen to be believed.

I think you will be fine even though you dont know Spanish. Many of the local shop keepers also speak english. I also think it's fine to go on your own, but you may consider hiring a guide to take you out there as this may... More

Are you using a tour guide? We used Runa Nan. Fantastic! We spent about 2 hours at ruins in Ollaytantambo and then back through the sacred valley to our retreat center which was 1 1/2 hours from Cusco. I think it is doable... More

Biking, what place would be most scenic (4 Replies)
Another question, Since I will be in both Lima and Cusco, I am unsure which biking excursion would be the most scenic. The choices in Lima are Pachacamac Temple and Lurin Valley or Olleros in the province of Huarochirí. In Cusco there is the Maras and moray or the Sacred valley of the Incas. If anyone has been to any of these places, please share your opinion, it would be very appreciated!!

Maras/Moray/Salinas trip is in the Sacred Valley. I am also thinking of biking there, but wonder what kind of trails those are. I was going to get to the Valley and then decide once we are there and talk to the biking place and see how we feel with the altitude. Anyway, if you do it please post more info about it after your return. Thanks!

The Junior Suite at Hotel Monasterio is the best choice for a honeymoon, KR in more suitable for a budget travel.
Cusco - Scared Valley of the Incas - Day Tour Operator (1 Replies)
Hi everyone, I was just hoping if anyone knows a reliable tour operator that provides a day tour to the Sacred Valley of the Incas from Cusco? I am interested in operators that (1) give you enough time to explore and appreciate a site, (2) keep their promises - unless for reasons out of their control, (3) not outrageously expensive, (4) good communication Thanks a lot for your help :)

Your best option is to hire a taxi to tour the sacred valley on your own. 2 full days would be ideal to visit all the sites: (Awanakancha), (Ccochahuasi), Pisac, (inkary museum), Ollantaytambo, chinchero, Maras 7 Moray. Your hotel in Cusco can help you hire a taxi for a day/hours with a short notice. If you plan to start early, just arrange something the day before. You will be able to go at your own pace & you can hire guides at the entrance of most sites. Organized group tours...More
