Full description
During this Sacred Valley day tour, go to the must-visit sites of Cusco and have a chance to try traditional Incan beer. Get picked up from your hotel in Cusco's city center and head to your first stop, Mirador Taray. Take in the spectacular views of the Andes and the Sacred Valley to prepare for your day of discovery.  Continue to the town of Pisac, the site of a popular market. See how locals dye alpaca wool with natural plants of the region. Visit the archaeological site and see its terraces, Incan cemeteries, and royal buildings. Afterward, move on to Moray to learn about the history of the Incas and wonder at their mysterious circular terraces. Head to the nearby village of Maras and learn about its history as a center for salt production at the Maras Salt Mines. Admire the unique quilt work of over 3,000 salt ponds spilling into the Sacred Valley. From here, go to Urubamba and to enjoy a buffet lunch at a local restaurant. Your adventure in the valley continues with a drive along the Urubamba River towards the town of Ollantaytambo to visit the ruins. Marvel at the remarkable Incan architecture built during the Incan Empire's heyday. In addition to the ruins, see an amazing rock formation that represents the Incan god of Wiracocha. Following your time at the ruins, choose to return to Cusco with your guide or to stay in Ollantaytambo so you can continue your personal travels to Machu Picchu.

Guide Algredo was awesome. He reinforces his eloquent speeches eith repeats that allowd u to retain all the information he dissipates. He showed us around on a busy day that covers Maras salt mines, Moray ruins, Chincherro ruins, a visit to a authentic Incan handicraft place, and the highlight being the Sacred calley at Ollantaytambo. Alfredo went above and beyond every single time you have questions and concerns. At the end of the tour, Alfredo helped us find the office of the next tour we had scheduled by walking with us around the Plaza de Armas at Cusco because of police blockade. Lunch at Taki wasi was an exotic buffet spread, it was sumptuous. Driver of the van was great, drove safely and never made any rough maneuvers. I highly recommend this tour with Alfredo and his driver Tinto.
