At 7:30 am your VSA cultural guide and our driver will pick up you from your hotel.

We drive for about 45 minutes and stop by the small town of Chinchero to learn about the ancient techniques of arts and textiles by the local people of the area. A truly unique experience! We then continue to visit Moray, the agricultural testing site of the Incas while passing through beautiful green lush valleys and begin to see snow-capped peaks of the Andes. The Incas carved out the dome-like shape into the ground to test out optimal growing temperatures for different crops. After spending 30-45minutes exploring, we drive 15minutes to Maras, where we will explore and learn about the ancient salt mines. We will see 3,000 salt pools carved into the mountain which is fed by a mountain stream of water dating back to pre-Inca times. After exploring the area, we drive about 45 minutes to our final stop of Ollantaytambo before returning to Cusco. The Citadel of Ollantaytambo is an incredible site. Marvel at well-preserved features such as the Temple of the Sun and Manyaraqui Square while observing the megaton rock structures, terraces, and steps leading up to the highest point. The entire tour will leave you breathless as you step back in time to experiences the landscapes and ruins of the Inca. Once we have completed the tour, we will return to Cusco arriving by 4:00 pm.

*Note: Our tour is flexible and can be modified as long as they do not compromise excessive distances or hours. If you have a train ticket for Aguas Calientes, we suggest that it be after 5 pm to avoid being in a hurry. Make sure to inform us of these details 2 days before the expedition.

 

Best Time To Visit Sraced Valley? The whole Year, every weather station has something different.
About the Rainy in Sacred Valley - Cloudy but epic! see the clouds through the mountains!
CORONA VIRUS in Cusco: Moderated cases detected, safe destination | Taking a private tour is the only option in the meantime, we recommend going between 3 to 4 people maximum. The use of surgical masks is mandatory, the use of alcohol gel for hands is the same inside the car and closed spaces.
