Visit the Sacred Valley of the Incas with a private guide


The Sacred Valley runs roughly from Pisac to Ollantaytambo a highly fertile region that was the Inca breadbasket and still produces much of the grains and vegetables consumed in Cusco compare to the chilly, thin air in Cusco, the Sacred Valley is lush and sunny. for the Inca sacred valley was literally paradise on earth. Pisac has residents of twelve communities who attend the Sunday market dressed in their finest clothes and barter for products just as their ancestor did in Incan times. this market is an example of living ancestral culture, along with charming Andean village that produces and sell some of the country's finest handicrafts. along with Machu Picchu and Cusco, the sacred valley is at the top of Peru's must-see list. The impressive town of Ollantaytambo is Peru's example of a living Inca village where people still live in the graceful Incan homes and use the same waterways that were used by their ancestor 500 years ago.
