Full description
During this Sacred Valley day tour, go to the must-visit sites of Cusco and have a chance to try traditional Incan beer. Get picked up from your hotel in Cusco's city center and head to your first stop, Mirador Taray. Take in the spectacular views of the Andes and the Sacred Valley to prepare for your day of discovery.  Continue to the town of Pisac, the site of a popular market. See how locals dye alpaca wool with natural plants of the region. Visit the archaeological site and see its terraces, Incan cemeteries, and royal buildings. Afterward, move on to Moray to learn about the history of the Incas and wonder at their mysterious circular terraces. Head to the nearby village of Maras and learn about its history as a center for salt production at the Maras Salt Mines. Admire the unique quilt work of over 3,000 salt ponds spilling into the Sacred Valley. From here, go to Urubamba and to enjoy a buffet lunch at a local restaurant. Your adventure in the valley continues with a drive along the Urubamba River towards the town of Ollantaytambo to visit the ruins. Marvel at the remarkable Incan architecture built during the Incan Empire's heyday. In addition to the ruins, see an amazing rock formation that represents the Incan god of Wiracocha. Following your time at the ruins, choose to return to Cusco with your guide or to stay in Ollantaytambo so you can continue your personal travels to Machu Picchu.

While it was too much in a day for me, I can’t fault them that I chose it! Our guide was really good at keeping us together and in order so we could see everything there was to see, and did a great job of explaining in both English and Spanish. Often things get lost when guides switch languages, but he did really well! Just be prepared for a full, busy day, and I’d say it’s worth it if you’re limited on time and want to see as many Incan remains as possible. The buffet lunch was also good.

We had a great guide that was super knowledgable. Our only complaint is that we felt rushed through the sites. This was a lot of locations to view in one day, I feel like the tour could have be done in 2 days to give you time to really be able to see all the sites and spend time walking around it. Some places we spent less than 30 minutes touring.

Fun trip to the beautiful moras, moray and Ollantaytambo. Good english speaking guide. We planned with getyourguide before the trip that we would end the trip and stay i Ollantaytambo. When the day came it was not like this, and pisac was the last stop. We therefor had to skip pisac, which was sad. Other than that, very pleased. These sites Are a must see while in Cusco.
