Highlight of Machu Picchu

The Pisac archaeological site is located at the beginning of the Sacred Valley. It is considered one of the region's most important Incan sites, mainly known for its impressive agricultural terraces and beautiful hilltop views.

The site is believed to have been constructed during the Incan Empire (1438-1532) and served as a strategic military and religious center for the Incas. The ruins at Pisac include a temple complex, a residential area, and several administrative and military buildings.

One of the most impressive features of Pisac is its agricultural terraces, built into the steep mountainside and used for farming crops such as corn, potatoes, and quinoa. The terraces were designed to maximize irrigation and prevent erosion, and they are still used by local farmers today.

Pisac Market is a vibrant outdoor market located in the town of Pisac. It is famous for its colorful displays of handicrafts, textiles, and traditional Peruvian foods.

The market is open daily, but it is especially lively on Sundays when vendors from the surrounding villages come to sell their goods. Visitors to Pisac Market can browse various products, including alpaca wool clothing, ceramics, jewelry, and musical instruments.

One of the market's highlights is its selection of traditional Peruvian foods. Vendors sell freshly prepared dishes such as roasted guinea pig, ceviche, empanadas, and various fruits, vegetables, and spices. Visitors can also sample traditional Peruvian drinks such as chicha, a fermented corn drink, and pisco, a grape brandy that is the national drink of Peru.

Ollantaytambo is a small town located approximately 38 miles (61 km) from Cusco. It is known for its well-preserved Incan ruins and its role as a transportation hub for travelers to Machu Picchu.

Ollantaytambo was named one of the world's best tourist villages by the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO). The town was recognized for its well-preserved Incan architecture, rich cultural heritage, and role as a gateway to Machu Picchu.
The UNWTO's "Best Tourism Villages" initiative aims to promote sustainable tourism in rural areas and to recognize the vital role that small villages can play in the tourism industry.

The selection criteria for the initiative include the preservation of cultural heritage, the promotion of local products and services, and the implementation of sustainable tourism practices.

Moray is an archaeological site located in the upper part of the Sacred Valley, approximately 31 miles (50 km) from Cusco. It is known for its impressive circular terraces that the Incas used for agricultural experiments.

The terraces at Moray were built into a natural depression in the earth, and they are arranged in concentric circles that decrease in size as they descend. The Incas used these terraces to test different agricultural techniques and grow crops, including corn, potatoes, and quinoa.

One of the most exciting features of Moray is its microclimates. The temperature at the center of the circular terraces is several degrees warmer than at the edges, creating a range of growing conditions that allowed the Incas to test the adaptability of different crops to different climates.

They are also known as the "Ciudad de las Portadas," a nickname given to the town of Maras due to its numerous colonial-era doorways and arches, known as "portadas" in Spanish. These doorways are a distinctive feature of the town's architecture and are highly valued for their historical and cultural significance.

Many of the "portadas" in Maras are made of carved stone and feature intricate designs and motifs. They were built by Spanish colonizers in the 16th and 17th centuries and were used to mark the entrances to important buildings and homes.

The "portadas" is an important part of Maras' cultural heritage, and the town takes great pride in preserving them. The local government has implemented measures to protect and restore the doorways. Visitors to Maras can take guided tours to learn about the history and significance of these unique architectural features.

The Salt Ponds of Maras, also known as Salineras de Maras, is a series of salt evaporation ponds in the Sacred Valley at 3200 m (10498 ft). The salt ponds have been used since pre-Columbian times and are still operated using traditional methods today.

The salt ponds are situated on a steep hillside just outside the town of Maras and cover an area of several hectares. They consist of thousands of small terraced pools that are filled with salty water from a natural underground stream. The water is left to evaporate in the sun, leaving behind salt crystals that local families harvest.

The salt from the Salineras de Maras is highly valued for its purity and unique flavor. It is used for cooking and preserving food, as well as for medicinal and ceremonial purposes. The salt is also an important source of income for local families, who work together to maintain the ponds and harvest the salt.

Chinchero is a small Andean town located at 3,762 m (12,343 ft). It is known as the "Land of Great Weavers" due to the town's rich textile traditions, passed down through generations. The local people are skilled in weaving intricate patterns and designs into textiles using traditional techniques and natural dyes.

Chinchero is also home to a beautiful archaeological site with a large colonial church built on top of an Inca palace. The church, known as the Church of Our Lady of Monserrat, was built by the Spanish in the early 17th century using stones taken from the nearby Inca site.

The Inca palace, located underneath the church, is believed to have been built by the Inca ruler Tupac Yupanqui. The palace featured impressive stonework and a large central courtyard and was likely used for ceremonial and administrative purposes.

In addition to its cultural and historical significance, Chinchero is known for its stunning views of the Andes Mountains and its vibrant local markets, where visitors can purchase handcrafted textiles and other artisanal goods.

Mirador Taray is a scenic viewpoint located in the Sacred Valley. It is known for its stunning panoramic mountains, valleys, and farmland views.

The viewpoint is approximately 3,800 meters (12,500 feet) above sea level. It offers visitors a breathtaking view of the region's natural beauty. From Mirador Taray, you can see the Urubamba River winding its way through the valley below and the snow-capped peaks of the Andes Mountains in the distance.


Machu Picchu Inca Citadel — The Best Tourist Attraction In The World

Machu Picchu Inca site is a phenomenal icon of Peru and a World Heritage Site by UNESCO since 1983. Nowadays it is one of the seven new wonders of the World and the most important attraction of Peru. The Inca citadel perched 2400 m / 7,874ft. above the Urubamba Valley. We understand that for most people, visiting Machu Picchu is a once-in-a-lifetime trip, and on Machu Picchu private tours, we will make sure every detail is perfect.

  • Machu Picchu is of great value to Peru not only for its touristic attraction or demonstration of an ingenious native culture, but also because of the diverse ecosystem. Spread over 32 thousand hectares, the Historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu is believed to nurture about 10% of the fauna and 22% of the flora found in Peru. On the citadel itself you just may bump into one of these woolly creatures.
  • The word most often repeated by visitors to Machu Picchu is impressive. To visit Machu Picchu is the opportunity to be exposed to the architectural feat of the Incas, a unique combination of man and nature. The craftsmanship of the Incas to cut large stones into polygonal shapes make this structure a splendor to observe.
  • The backdrop to the panoramic views of Machu Picchu, this mountain provides the best vantage point. Meaning “young mountain” in Quechua, Huayna Picchu reaches 2,667 meters high, making it over 200 meters taller than the “old mountain”, Machu Picchu. Though the climb up does not require any technical skills, the 1000-foot ascent is quite steep.

Facts about Cusco


THE SACRED VALLEY – The stunning SACRED VALLEY OF THE INCAS in the Cusco region is one of the most popular destinations on our tours in Peru and, one of the most visited not only in Peru but also in all South America. The Sacred Valley is tucked between Cusco and Machu Picchu, in the Peruvian Andes and located in the north of Cusco, running along the Urubamba River from Pisac to Ollantaytambo.

The Sacred Valley of Peru is a relaxing and incomparably beautiful place hidden beneath of the formidable foothills of the Urubamba mountain range. Along the Sacred Valley of the Incas from Pisac to Ollantaytambo, there are many Inca and pre-Inca remains, all of them aligned on the route between Cusco and the citadel of Machu Picchu. Also, the Sacred Valley in Cusco is a peaceful area to spend some time wandering through markets or soaking up the local culture.

What was the Sacred Valley of the Incas in ancient times? The Sacred Valley of the Incas was a crucial area for the ancient Inca civilization and it functioned as both an agricultural, spiritual and political center for them and, adored for its fertile soil, perfect climate, natural resources, and strategic position. Where through the valley rolls the revered Rio Urubamba (known in Quechua Wilcamayu by the Incas), a pivotal religious element of the Incas’ cosmology.

The Incas believed not only that the flow of the Urubamba was inexorably tied to the constellations and the mountain peaks, but also that the river was the earthbound counterpart of the Milky Way. Furthermore, the Sacred Urubamba River is the main source of the longest river in the world known as Amazon.

On the other hand, the Sacred Valley still retains many of its ancient features, such as traditional dress, spiritual ceremonies, language, and an intrinsic connection to Pacha Mama, Mother Earth, in all aspects of everyday life.

Our Sacred Valley private day tours, Tailor-made is done between the magnificent Incan archaeological sites found from Pisaq to Ollantaytambo at either end of the valley and in between we offer tours of ancient Inca salt mines, the archaeological site of Moray, local farms and non-touristic markets and unique cultural adventure through Sacred Valley of the Incas ensuring you have the best quality tour service.

My daughter got sick the night before our tour and they were very accommodating and rescheduled for the following day without any issues. I was completely amazed. The pick up was early at 4:15am and they had blankets for us in the van. We stopped for a delicious breakfast halfway. (They also accommodated my daughter’s diet due to allergies and cooked special food for her) ❤️ We arrived at the bottom of the mountain and it only got better from there. We did the horse option, which I would recommend, and we were off to the top. Efra made sure my family of 5 were all settled on our horses and stayed with us the whole way up. We went as far as the horses could take us and then we had to walk. I consider myself and my family to be in pretty good shape and the hiking up to the summit can be difficult due to the elevation. Efra never once made us feel like we were taking too long or walking too slow. He was fantastic and a great cheerleader. He helped us set goals to reach for breaks, which is great. It made the trip not seem so impossible. He also took pictures for us, which is great because I am hardly ever in my group family photos because I’m the one taking them. Once we successfully reached the summit we walked around the top and took pictures and just took it all in. Still he never rushed us once. Once we enjoyed all that we wanted we made our way down the mountain. Loaded up and made our way back to Cusco. We stopped for lunch at the halfway point again. Food was delish. Efra was very nice and told us a lot about the Inkan History❤️. To sum it all up. Fantastic experience! Fantastic company! Fantastic tour guide!

Super Full Day Sacred Valley We had a full day tour of the Sacred Valley with our guide, Adolfo and our driver, Michael. The organisation was perfect: good communication in advance, prompt pick-up and timely organised to avoid most other tours and enjoy the sights with less people. We especially appreciated our guide who was very knowledgeable in all the sights and answered all our questions, was also very friendly and accommodating of our requests like stopping for pictures along the way! The tour is spectacular and perfectly organised, can only recommend !
The best experience of life time! This was my best International trip. And it wouldn’t have been possible without our tour guide Adolfo, the driver Mario and co-ordinator Ifra. They are simply the best team to work with! We took 2-day Machu Pichu tour from Cusco and had the best experience of life time with a comfortable ride, customized tour that fit our schedule and preferences. I explored many more options on Viator but I found Peru Spirit Adventure on Google search. Ifra took care of all co-ordination and ticket bookings even at 1 am on a short notice. Mario did a wonderful and safe driving as we were traveling with our two kids. And Adolfo treated us like his family! Highly recommended!

A Must Do Tour in the Sacred Valley! This review is long overdue but I still wanted to write about our memorable experience with Peru Spirit Adventure. We did the Full-Day Private Tour of the Sacred Valley with Fredy as our guide and Mario as our driver in June 2022. They picked us up from our hotel in Ollantaytambo and spent the whole day driving us to various sites and then dropping us off at another hotel in Cusco. Fredy was very knowledgeable and he even brought a book to show us about the ancient Incan culture which we really appreciated. We actually ended up buying the same book at a bookstore in Cusco as a souvenir. Fredy took his time to show us the sites and we never felt rushed. He was with us to show us the sites and answered all of our questions but gave us time to explore on our own. Mario, our driver, was amazing too. He didn't speak English but his manner and gestures were so kind, gracious, and genuine. It's been a year since we've been to Peru but our family still talks about what a wonderful adventure it was and this tour was definitely a part of it. Thank you Fredy and Mario!
Fun family day Super informative and patient guide. Wonderful experience. Went out of their way to customize for us and everyone had a great time (group of 8 with kids aged 11-15)

Local company with attention to detail makes for a very, very special adventure My wife and I travelled with Peru Spirit Adventure on the 3-day Sacred Valley/MP tour in late February. We are so glad that we chose the company. Peru Spirit Adventure are a small Cusco based enterprise looking to establish among some bigger players. The company brings added value, with strong communication leading up to the tour, a great attention to attention to detail and to clients needs, a very deep knowledge of Andean culture and history and strong and friendly relations with us. We undertook a 3-day Sacred Valley tour, lead and guided by Efra and driven by 'Mr Boots' Mario. The vehicle was in great condition and Mario a first-class, careful and considerate driver. Our tour including a first day to Pisac, a sacred spring, the amazing labyrinth, a tour of a local camelid stock before ending at the stunning Sacsayhuaman.We convered much, but never felt rushed. Our second day started at the town of Chinchero and its ruins, a fascinating tour of a women's textile cooperative before heading to the amazing Ollantaytambo. Throughout, Efra conveyed information with enthusiasm and interest, and always answered our questions. Efra is himself a keen photographer, and knows very well the best views, often offering shots which were gratefully received. He also always gave great recommendations of spots for lunch that so suited us. In the evening, we heading by train to Aguas Calientes - at every stage, Efra was taking care of the details - tickets, times, to make sure our journey was suiting us, and hassle free. Tackling problems before they could arise - eg checking first bus times and buying tickets in advance so we didnt have to queue. Of course, a highlight was our visit to Machu Picchu, and knowing how the visit works, Efra helped it work best for us. With a one-way circuit, and heavy early mist, a 45 minute wait at the top made sure we got the most from our visit when the clouds lifted. This is something several of the groups missed out on. Thank you Efra, and to your colleagues behind the scenes - you made a special lifetime adventure so very memorable for us. We hope that you and your company get the chance in the coming months and years to do so again for many others.

TRAVEL IN PERU: Peru Spirit Adventure operates in regions, where standards of accommodation can vary. Transportation and other services might not be like those you would normally have back home. However, we strive with all due care and skill, to provide the best service for our clients. Traveling in Peru requires flexibility, patience, broad-mindedness, good humor and an understanding that changes may be made without notice due to circumstances or occurrences beyond our control. For example: a strike, protest, landslide, bad weather, etc. (Force Majeure). By booking any of our tours & treks, you agree to allow Peru Spirit Adventure to make necessary changes without liability.


Force Majeure is any event that PERU SPIRIT ADVENTURE cannot with all due care foresee, control or avoid. This covers events such as war or threat of war, riot, civil strike, terrorist activity, industrial dispute, disease, natural disasters, adverse weather conditions, fire or all similar events beyond our control. In this case, PERU SPIRIT ADVENTURE will not accept liability and reserves the right to change, postpone or even cancel trips. (This is a last option, of course!)


By booking any of our adventure trips (Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, Lares, Salkantay, Ausangate, Choquequirao, Rainbow Mountain trek and more) you assume the risks associated with personal accidents, medical emergencies, air travel problems etc. For these treks, PERU SPIRIT ADVENTURE Agency accepts no responsibility.


  • You must advise Peru Spirit Adventure of any medical problems or allergies you may have. You need to be in good physical health, and if your health is questionable, then you should consult a doctor. If you are over the age of 70 years old, then you will need to present us with a current good health medical certificate.
  • You must advise your guide if you wish to leave the group or the camping area for independent walks or sightseeing. If you are experiencing any problems with the services of the guide or tour, please advise the guide in that moment, so that he can resolve any problems.
  • All balances need to be paid in either cash or PayPal (see “FINAL PAYMENTS” section above).
  • In order to receive a student discount, you must send your valid University ID to Peru Spirit Adventure at the time of booking. ID must have your name, photo and valid expiration date. Any card without an expiration date will not be accepted. You will then be required to bring your student card with you on the trek – they will not allow you to pass through the checkpoint without this original card.
  • You will be required to show the original passport (not a copy) that you booked with, at the checkpoint to enter the Inca Trail. If you originally booked with an old passport and then renewed your passport, you must also bring your expired passport along with your new, valid passport to permit entry or they will refuse your entrance to the trail.
  • Cancellations: Your deposit is 100% non-refundable. If you need to cancel for any reason, as you approach your tour start date, there may be additional cost due. There are absolutely no exceptions (we do not accept medical notes of any kind) as our out of pocket expenses are non-refundable to us (see “CANCELLATION FEES” section above).

  • In extreme cases when the “Inca Trail to Machu Picchu” is declared closed for safety reasons, Peru Spirit Adventure will replace your trek with an alternative trek.


  • We strongly suggest spending time at high altitude (above 3000 meters / 9842 feet)- in Cusco or another high altitude area for a minimum of 2- 4 days before undertaking your trip. This is in order to minimize the possible effects of altitude sickness. By drinking plenty of fluids, adding sugar to your drinks, eating food high in carbohydrates, avoiding cigarettes, alcohol, and drinking coca tea (ancient traditional leaf) will help your body acclimatize.
  • We recommend you arrive in Cusco 48 hours or more before trek departure because occasionally we need to leave earlier than scheduled in case of strikes or other events out of our control (see ‘Force Majeure’ section below)
