access_time8:00 am
We will be picked up at our accommodation in Cusco around 8:00 a.m. and once we met the rest of our fellow travelers, we will head to the first stop of our tour: Pisac. Pisac is located deep inside the Sacred Valley. Here we will visit the many monuments around the city and the traditional market of the city, before continuing to our next destinations.
We are going to visit the cities of Calco and Urubamba before entering the impressive fortress of Ollantaytambo, one of the most important fortifications of the ancient Inca. It served as the gateway to the whole village and used to protect the Inca villages from raiding parties of neighbouring tribes of the lower jungle.
In the afternoon, we will visit the last stops of our tour before returning to Cusco: the sites of Chinchero. Here we will explore the ruins of the Royal Hacienda of Tupac Inca Yupanqui and the colonial-era temple built on Inca foundations, which is famous for its intricate mosaics. Finally, after this eventful day, we will board our bus to Cusco again. We are going to arrive back in Cusco around 7:00 p.m., where our tour will end in the city center.
