Sacred Valley of the Incas, Cusco Region

Once at the heart of the Inca Empire, Sacred Valley of the Incas plays home to many of the region's most popular archeological sites, cities, and places to visit. Grab your boots and trek through the area to get an up-close look at the mountain environment via the network of hiking trails and paths. Explore the rugged mountain valley to get a glimpse of Inca fortifications and settlements like Pisac, Moray, Tipon, and Ollantaytambo, which feature terraced hillsides and imposing stone citadels. The valley also boasts a number of quiet villages and colonial-era gems; Cusco is perhaps the best known, but plenty of smaller villages featuring markets and sights of their own line the valley's length.

  • The Sacred Valley is indispensable for those visiting Peru. We start with the Moray salt evaporation ponds. A spectacle of place surrounded by immense mountains, the thousands of salt Wells delight the eyes! In Maras, we learn about one of the greatest legates of the Incas, the method of cultivation! We made this private tour of Ruta Andina Travel Peru, besides this, also the City Tour and Pisaq, Chinchero and Ollantaytambo in group. Excellent tour, especially the attention of Lucila, very helpful and helpful for all the days of our tours and our guide Richard very friendly.

  • They are in Plaza de Armas very close to PeruRail so that they capture many tourists. You are deceived saying that they will give you several free services that do not really give them but PeruRail. The guide who took us through the Sacred Valley, had no idea of the none of the questions that are to him, never gave an explanation ordered or interrelated between the LU Valley, so that it would be understood as a whole. Most probably did not have training as a guide and is dedicated only to give disordered data. I was promised a very cheap guide on arrival to Aguas Calientes to help with the tour and transportation that never appeared. A terrible experience that tarnishes the quality of part of the tourism in Cuzo and that tarnishes the beauty of the Sacred Valley
