Classic Sacred Valley Tour is a traditional tour where you get to explore the famous Valle Sagrado de los Inkas, 20 km = 12 miles at its closest north of the Inca capital of Cusco. On a Sacred valley trip you get to visit amazing sites Pisac Inca city; Ollantaytambo ruins and Chinchero colonial temple plus the Inca terraces.
Hidden under the tawny skirts of formidable foothills, the spectacular Río Urubamba Valley, known as “El Valle Sagrado (the Sacred Valley of the Incas)”; is about 15km north of City of Cusco as the condor flies, via a narrow road of hairpin turns.
It’s worth exploring this peaceful, fetching corner of the Andes with attractive colonial towns and isolated weaving Inca towns. Star attractions are the Andean markets and the lofty Inca citadels of Pisac, Ollantaytambo and Chinchero; but it’s also packed with other Inca sites. Its myriad hiking routes are deservedly gaining in popularity.
The classic Sacred Valley day trip from Cusco leaves round the year. However, the busiest season is from April to October. This is also the dry season in Cusco.
During November to March is the rainy season in which Cusco receives less visitors but Happy Gringo operates the Classic Sacred Valley Tour on a daily basis.
We operate this tour both in small groups and as a private tour. For a better understanding of Inca civilization, we highly recommend the tour after experiencing the Cusco City Tour.
