Departure Time

8:00 AM
Following pickup from your hotel in Cusco, explore Peru's Urubamba Valley on this 7-hour day trip. 

After departure aboard your comfortable vehicle, the day's first stop is the Andean village of Chinchero. Stroll around the town's main square, take in the alpine views and stop at an ancient church with impressive decorative details. Continue to the small town of Maras, a former salt-production center that lies off the beaten path. Imagine what life was like in colonial times as you have a look around. 

Travel just a couple of miles to Moray, home to a set of amphiteater-like terraces made by the Incas. Listen as your guide explains the use of these terraces and their role in the Incas farming practices. Stop for lunch in the area, choosing between two local restaurants. 

With a belly full of Peruvian food, head to Ollantaytambo to explore an impressive Inca fortress. Stroll down the town's cobblestone streets at your leisure before boarding your tour vehicle for the trip back to Cusco.

We had a superb tour with our tour guide Oscar. I can't speak highly enough about his knowledge, perfect English, organizational skills and care of us. What a fine young man! This is a private tour and we had a driver who drove us all over the Sacred Valley in a mini van. It was comfortable and safe. Oscar used his iPad to illustrate and show us timelines of the Inca kings, map of Peru, geography and plants and animals that he was telling us about. He was enthusiastic and passionate about everything he showed us. We learned that as a guide he must have a five year university degree and proficiency in two languages besides Spanish. The lunch was a buffet in a beautiful restaurant. There was even a band that played just for us while we ate with Oscar! Superb service and delicious food. This trip is well worth the money and an excellent use of time.We could never have found the silversmith village, textile demonstration, restaurant and other amazing sights on our own. It was the highlight of our trip to Peru.

This trip was absolutely unbelievable! Most people go to Cusco with the intent to see Machu Picchu but there is so much more and this day trip encompasses it all! Our tour guide Juan was absolutely wonderful - the tour was only suppose to be around 6 hours long but he spent much more time than that and was entirely patient with my group of 7. The views were spectacular and I didn't even realize that lunch would be included. There is so much history and architecture to see in Cusco and this tour was definitely worth it to get a taste of it all.
