Itinerary

Full Day Pisac

We will pick you up from your accommodation in Cusco in our private transport. We will take you on a trip for 40 minutes to our first one at the Taray viewpoint where you will be able to observe the impressive view of the sacred valley and the long river that runs irrigating the entire Sacred Valley, Urubamba.

Continuing with our trip we will take you to Pisac, famous for its astronomical observatory, this beautiful town has a traditional market, where you can see the different crafts of the locals and an archaeological zone where our local guide will give you a guided tour of the complex.

After touring this archaeological site we will take you to the main square with its cobbled streets, where you can buy handmade crafts.

After visiting this beautiful place, we will go to the town of Urubamba to enjoy a delicious Peruvian buffet lunch.

Ollantaytambo

Continuing with our tour we will take you to Ollantaytambo, a beautiful town with narrow cobbled streets, which was once the administrative capital of the Inca empire. This town is almost intact since the time of the Incas.

Ollantaytambo is a clear testimony of the progress of Inca architecture and urbanism.

Moray

After visiting the imposing archaeological site of Ollantaytambo we will go to the Archaeological Complex of Moray. Moray is a construction of concentric circular stones forming a kind of rings that widen and increase in temperature as they rise.

This place was used by civilization as an agricultural research laboratory, since the best conditions for planting products on Inca lands were experienced here.

Maras

After seeing this impressive construction we will visit the salt mines of Maras. The Maras Salt Mines, whose exploitation has been carried out since the Inca civilization, are located on the side of a hill, whose saline water spring nourishes more than five thousand pools of approximately 5 square meters each.

Our professional guide will explain in detail the salt extraction process, in addition to seeing some of the locals performing the salt extraction process.

Chinchero

Finally we will visit our last destination Chinchero, a beautiful town where the Inca tradition and culture still persists in its inhabitants. They are well known for their handicrafts. Chinchero is home to some Inca farmland that was built during the Inca era.

It is also home to a beautiful whitewashed colonial church that was built by the Spanish conquistadors under the rubble of the royal palace of the Incas.

After visiting these wonderful places, we will return to Cusco to leave them in their respective accommodations.
