Sacred Valley Private Tour: Chincheros, Ollantaytambo and Pisaq
Explore the highlights of Peru’s Sacred Valley, a region just outside Cusco that once functioned as a spiritual, political and agricultural hub for the ancient Incas, on this full-day trip. Learn about the timeless traditions of Andean textile design at a weaving center in Chincheros, then head to Ollantaytambo, home to an impressive collection of Inca-designed farming terraces. You’ll also see the Inca city of Pisac, home to an impressive collection of ruins and a bustling market. Your Sacred Valley excursion also covers lunch, a guide and round-trip hotel transport.
What to Expect
You start early from Cusco and head to the high mountain village of Chincheros, famous for its weaving and spectacularly sited at high altitude. (3,800m/12,500 ft.) You will visit a weaving house and have a demonstration on dying and weaving techniques as well as visiting the famous Chincheros market. From Chincheros, you descend to the base of the Sacred Valley and then onto Ollantaytambo, which features an impressive set of terraces leading from the village center.

You have time for a buffet lunch in Urubamba before heading to Pisaq - our final stop for the day. In Pisaq you will first the attractive ruins, built with breathtaking audacity by the Incas and then descend to the market at Pisaq before returning to Cusco, via the ruins at Sacsayhuaman. (If you are short of time this visit might be only very short).

Lasting a full day you will get to appreciate the fine works of craftsmanship that the Incas produced and see the beautiful scenery of the Sacred Valley. Many tourists opt to do this tour just before their visit to Machu Picchu as you can choose to finish in Ollantaytambo from where you take the train on to Aguas Calientes (the town at the base of Machu Picchu).

This is a long but rewarding day for those who want to experience the best of the Sacred Valley in a short amount of time.

  • Chincheros
  • Chinchero Textile Interpretation Center
  • Ollantaytambo
  • Pisac Market

you're going to Peru for Machu Pichu, and you didn't know this Ollantaytambo was so amazing

The entire structure is incredibly large, and the stonework on the large pieces is mind-blowing. I liked Chincheros and Pisaq but Ollantaytambo was the greatest
