Full day with amazing stops. I thought seeing so many Incan ruins would get boring, but each place was special. We had just a short time in each place, but this was necessary to see everything in one day. (We didn't have time to stop at all the viewpoints, but our guide took us to the best ones.) In addition to the Incan ruins and the salt mines, we stopped at places to see cloth-making demonstrations, brief chocolate-making, and brief silver jewelry-making. The group had about 25 people in it. The guide was very kind; sometimes his English was a bit hard to understand, so I suggest chatting with him so you get used to it and can garner all the information he shares. A buffet lunch was included.

This tour is run by PVTravels. We were told to be ready for pick up between 6:20-6:50am. By 7:00, we still had not been picked up. After reaching out to the PVTravel coordinator through WhatsApp, we got a response within 10 minutes and she told us there had been some miscommunication and we had been left behind. She was very apologetic and made plans for us to get a taxi to meet at Chinchero, the first stop. However, we ended up only arriving about 20 minutes after the tour bus, so it did not majorly affect our day. We enjoyed all of the stops, including an included buffet lunch, which was a nice surprise! Our guide gave a decent amount of information about each stop, though we would have enjoyed learning more history. We did feel rushed at a few places, and communication on timing and schedule changes could have been better. We arrived back to Cusco around 7pm. Overall, I would recommend this tour, a good price and you see a lot of great sights in the beautiful Sacred Valley!

Juan Carlos was our trip guide. He was very knowledgeable, patient, explained everything both in English and Spanish. We were just 5 ppl in our group making the experience all the more fun, walking together, helping out with pictures, etc. The itinerary did not feel rushed. We enjoyed all the stops - Chinchero, Moray, Maras, Olantaytambo and Pisac. The restaurant in Urubamba where we stopped for lunch was really good. Overall, it was worth the money and a day well spent, learning a lot about Incas and scared valley!
