Sacred Valley Classic Trip Itinerary

Your Classic Sacred Valley Trip begins at 7:30 AM, to avoid the crowd! Our English speaking guide will pick you up from your hotel lobby. We will begin the day by traveling in a private vehicle from Cusco on the road that winds around the mountains towards the Sacred Valley of the Incas. After driving for 45 minutes through colorful small towns, we make our first stop either at the Alpaca Farm or Ccochahuasi Animal Sanctuary to visit and observe some unique Andean animals. We will then continue to one of the famous point known as El Mirador (Lookout Point) “Taray”. From there, we will be able to see the Sacred Valley, the Urubamba River — The source of the longest river in the world “the Amazon River”, and gain some insight into the Inca history. The Sacred Valley of the Incas was one of the main areas the Incas settled. There is an unusual abundance of fertile plains in this high area of the Andes. You will also witness vast contour terracing and irrigation channels left behind by the Incas.

Later on, we will drive towards the ruins of Pisac. Here, you will explore, witness and learn about Inca culture. You will see amazing works of stone art and impressive agricultural terraces. After exploring, you and your guide will drive back to the lower town of Pisac to stop at a bustling handicraft market. After you spend some time walking around the market bargain hunting, we will meet to continue driving along the Urubamba River (Wilcamayu River) for about one hour to reach Urubamba where we will enjoy a typical lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch, we will continue driving towards Ollantaytambo archeological site, we will visit the ruins, an important area of Incan construction, built during the Inca’s heydays. This is an extraordinary Inca site because you can find the temple of the sun, which is aligned with the nearby mountains to track important astronomical events including solstices, and rock formations representing the Inca god, Wiracocha.

  • If, after your Sacred Valley Classic Trip from Cusco, you are going to end the tour in Ollantaytambo/ Urubamba or take the train from Ollantaytambo to Aguas Calientes, you won’t have the opportunity to visit Chinchero for the traditional weaving demonstration on this circuit. Our guide will be very happy to take you to the train station in time to board your train.

If, your Classic Sacred Valley Trip will end in Cusco, on the way back, we will visit the town of Chinchero to see the local villagers wearing their typical clothes, just as in ancient times and have a traditional weaving demonstration. Afterwards, we will return to Cusco and drop you off at your hotel.

Classic Day Tour to Sacred Valley – The Sacred Valley trip is one of the most popular tours in the region or must-see. The Sacred Valley of the Incas was the most important area for the Inca empire and it functioned as both an agricultural, spiritual and political center for them. Likewise, the Sacred Valley is the stretch of the Andes that lies between Cusco and Machu Picchu through isolated villages and numerous Inca and Pre-Inca sites under the lush green landscape and formidable foothills.
Many tourists opt to do this Sacred Valley tour or Classic full-day trip from Cusco just before their visit to Machu Picchu as you can choose to finish in Ollantaytambo from where you can take the train on to Aguas Calientes (the town at the base of Machu Picchu).

The weather in Cusco: The weather in Cusco is unpredictable. The dry season in Cusco is from April to October, but this does not prevent rain from falling in June or the sun from rising in December – just be prepared. No matter what month you are doing the tour, please make sure you have rain gear that includes a rain jacket, pants, poncho and rain gloves. Many people forget their gloves, but the cold and humidity make the tours very unpleasant.

If you are going to do trekking or expeditions in the Peruvian Andes. Prepare yourself also for four seasons. Many of the walks through the Andes involve many microclimates and you will need to be prepared for all seasons. Layers are always key as they are easy to adjust to different temperatures. And the nights will always be cold, so please prepare yourself with a warm winter jacket.

What is altitude sickness? Altitude sickness is when the body begins to react differently to compensate for changes in oxygen levels. As it rises, the air pressure decreases (the air becomes “thinner”), so for each breath, there will be less oxygen for your body. Your body gradually adjusts to receiving less oxygen – you breathe faster and deeper and the body produces more red blood cells.

This takes time, so if you go from low to high altitude too fast, you may feel symptoms of altitude sickness until your body becomes acclimated.

Cusco is located at an altitude of 3,400 meters (11,200 feet) and it is common for many visitors to experience some mild symptoms of altitude sickness in Cusco, or “soroche” as it is locally known. It is difficult to know if you will be affected by altitude sickness, as some people may be more susceptible than others, regardless of their age, sex or physical condition.

How can you tell if you are suffering from altitude sickness? Common mild symptoms of altitude sickness may include:

  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Fatigue
  • Poor appetite
  • Dizziness
  • Disturbed sleep

Climbing the stairs to your hotel room can sometimes feel like the last mile in a marathon in the first few days of your Peru trip particularly in Cusco which is at a higher altitude than say Machu Picchu or the Sacred Valley!

How much does the Tourist Ticket cost?

There are 2 types of Cusco Tourist Tickets:

  • The general ticket a ten (10) day pass for s/130 soles per person – (US $ 45 per person). This ticket allows you to visit 16 sites. Among them are: Attractions of the city tour, the Sacred Valley, Maras – Moray, and some museums.
  • A two-day pass for s/ 70 soles per person – (US $ 23 per person). This ticket includes only certain attractions depending on the tour: City Tour, Sacred Valley and Maras – Moray.

What kind of clothes should I wear on the Sacred Valley trip?

  • You should wear light clothing, as it allows you to move comfortably through all the attractions; sometimes you have to climb stairs. It is also recommended to wear warm clothes because afternoons tend to be cold and/or rainy.

What is the best time to take the tour to Sacred Valley?

  • Generally, any day of the year is incredible, but if you want to avoid a little rain we recommend the months from April to December. From January to March it usually rains.

Where can I be picked up for the Sacred Valley tour?

  • Don’t worry! We will pick you up at your hotel in Cusco. The location doesn’t matter. We cannot always pick up at private residences or Airbnb’s. If you’re staying in a private residence or Airbnb, we will do our best to pick you up at that spot or nearby. Just let us know the address in advance exactly where.
