Extremely knowledgeable about the history and contemporary importance of the Sacred Valley, he picked us up in Cusco, took us to the Inca Palace and market in Chinchero, the Moray agricultural terraces, the Mara salt mines, dropped us at our hotel and took us around the following day as well, to Pisac,...

The sacred alley, also known as Urubamba Valley is the center of many tourism attractions and activities due to its close proximity to Cusco and the many destinations nearby. This place is very close to Cusco and the city of Machu Picchu. The valley includes Pisac or Pisaq and Ollantaytambo. It was formed by the Urubamba River or the Wilkanuta... More

Try to see it on your own instead of a fast tour. Many things to see from ruins at Pisec to ruins at Ollsntaytambo

Our tour covered a number of sites but by far the most impressive was Ollantaytambo. My only regret was that we only had a couple of hours at the site, at least a 1/2 day was needed to view the area. I would also recommend the 2 day Sacred Valley tour which takes in a number of other sites in... More

We booked through Llama path for $20 each. Our guide was Sebastian. We did the sacred valley tour before our four day Inca trek and for a finish we were glad that we did as the site at Ollanytambo was worth it. The other sites were good too and the view from the bus along the way was great. We... More

When you go to Peru, Macchu Pichu is on the list. But if you don't do the Inca Trail, ou get to fossic around Cusco. I my view it's a better option, as the inca trail is brutal. The sacred Valley of the Incas was amazing. The ruins & the sories behind them will stay with you for ever. A... More

Took a cab ride from Yucay to Maras salt mines (120 soles roundtrip, cab driver waits). You descend steeply towards the salt mines. There are countless numbers of salt pools to explore. At the end of the mines, there is a trail that heads up one of the adjoining mountains. Very interesting visit.

We hired a guide that picked us up at 9 am from the main plaza in Ollantaytambo and dropped us back at our hotel by 4-5 pm for 2 days. We visited Moray and Maras Salt Pans, a women's weaving collective in Chinchero, Pisaq Market and the ruins nearby as well as the ruins in Ollantaytambo. Surrounded by jagged peaks,... More
