Itinerary

Day 1: Cusco | Qorao - Sacred Valley Lookout - Pisac - Urubamba - Ollantaytambo - Chinchero - Cusco

Our exciting day out begins between 7:20 and 7:50 am when we collect you from your accommodation and set off in our private transport to our first destination of the day.

On our way to Pisac, we’ll make our first stop of the day, about thirty minutes from Cusco. We’ll be vising Qorao market, to wander around and see locals selling their handicrafts. There are handmade souvenirs and some stunning art pieces that you can buy as a reminder of your trip or for some thoughtful gifts for friends and family back home. Here, you’ll also get the chance to take some photos of the incredible landscapes and local wildlife, like llamas.

Next, we’ll keep heading to "El Mirador Del Valle Sagrado." This lookout over the valley will provide you with the perfect opportunity to photograph the Andean mountain range and the Sacred Valley together.

We’ll soon arrive at Pisac to visit its colorful market and archaeological site. The Pisac complex is well-known because of its terraces that rise from the boom of the mountain to the top in a harmonious way. You’ll also see the biggest Inca cemetery and Pisac’s Inhuatana, which is famous for predicting the solstice and equinox that determined the ancient culture’s agriculture calendar.

Once finished, we’ll drive for another hour to Urubamba and enjoy a delicious buffet lunch of traditional Peruvian dishes. There’ll be a wide range of options available and it’s the perfect chance to try many foods.
In the afternoon, we’ll visit Ollantaytambo town to tour its unique and extensive archaeological site that’s home to water sources, high terraces, temples, and more. The site is surrounded by towering mountain peaks and colorful valleys (plus a view of a faraway glacier)!

This town is the most well-preserved layout of a typical, Incan-built city with its narrow, cobbled streets and stone walls. It’s the only original Inca town where people still live to this day. Its conservation allows for the enduring legacy of the Incan people to live on and for us to understand the ancient culture better.

On our way back to Cusco, we’ll make a final stop at the town of Chinchero. You’ll have the opportunity here to visit a beautiful colonial temple, best known for its mural painting above the entranceway (this temple was built on top of Inca foundations). We’ll also get to see the Incan walls in the main plaza.

The highlight in this town is watching local women making textiles. They’ll teach you the process and you’ll get the chance to support them by purchasing their handmade pieces if you wish.

Finally, we’ll continue onto Cusco and drop you off at your accommodation early evening.
