    Itinerary
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Pisac Peru

    Travel back in time to the Sacred Valley of the Incas with a day that begins in Pisac. This native town was once where “exchange transactions” took place. In this type of transaction, customers would exchange one good for another instead of using currency. Visit the market of Pisac where you can purchase beautifully crafted products hand-made by the locals.

    On Sunday, the main attraction is a mass celebrated in Quechua and conducted in Spanish. It is attended by the mayors and their attendants who play traditional musical instruments called "pututos."

    Afterwards, you'll enjoy a typical Peruvian lunch (included in price) before visiting the fortress of Ollantaytambo and its main attraction, the Temple of the Sun. Built using massive stones, each one approximately 12 feet (3.5m) tall, this temple was used as a fortress during the time of the Incan civil war.

    Duration: 2 hours

      The tour itself was very well rounded, went to all the great spots..had a good amount of time to ourselves and the stops that we went to for markets to sell us stuff we learned a great deal about the culture so I didn’t feel like they were just trying to get us to buy things.Ernesto is phenomenal!!!! He was so knowledgeable, welcomed Any questions and you could tell he was so passionate about his work! He really made the trip enjoyable! The lunch buffet! Location beautiful and food was so good! Lastly the driver was so good at driving a big bus up and down curvy mountain roads!

      Our tour guide was Aricely (I'm certain I spelled her name wrong, sorry!) and she did an excellent job. She was very knowledgeable, funny, and helpful. She was strict about our time table and ensured that our tour ran on schedule, which I appreciated. We stopped briefly at an alpaca and llama farm and we were able to feed them, which was a fun treat for everyone. For lunch, they took us to a delicious buffet with wonderful scenery and live music. The whole ride itself had a very beautiful scenery of the mountains. Overall, it was a great tour and I recommend to anyone who wants a break from the main Cusco region.

      Really enjoyed this tour. Our guide Eloy was knowledgeable and friendly and gave us all the information we needed through the trip. Lots of great sights to see and they managed to keep us ahead of the curve - always 100s of tourists arriving after us, so we got to see places before they filled up. Also an impressive and varied buffet lunch - the best included lunch I’ve ever had on a tour.

      LOVED our guide for this tour!!!! He was a great story teller and made the day so fabulous!! The scenery was amazing and the history was captivating! Lunch was included and was incredibly delicious and we all left stuffed!! The markets of Pisac and the ruins in Ollantaytambo were so much fun and the drive thru Sacred Valley was incredibly picturesque. The only thing I wished for different was more time : I had an exceptional day!!

      I took this tour with my 20 year old daughter and we had an awesome time. We had a small group of 6 total. The tour and (especially) guide were very good. The lunch was a very nice surprise at a beautiful hotel. Personally, the only negative was the time spent shopping in Pisac. I'm not much of a shopper. I would recommend this tour.

      Even though you do not visit the Saqsayhuaman ruins, you are in Saqsayhuaman park and riding free with the wind in your hair overlooking stunning views. I really enjoyed this tour. We visited a small ruin called the Temple of the Moon and Spirit Mountain. My guide Grimaldo was great! There was only one other girl on my tour so instead of being on a tourist tour it really felt like I was just hanging out with friends.

      The trip was great. Robinson is an excellent tour guide. Excellent price, and phenomenal lunch buffet- beautiful setting and great food. I left my Kindle on the tour bus- one phone call from the hotel and it was returned to me the next day at 430AM on the next tour. And Sacred Valley is a must see before Machu Picchu. People on board made the trip even more fun. Do this!!

      This tour is exceptional. Everything we hope for that is stated in this tour package was delivered to us well. Our tour guide Niño is really informative and knows how to lead the group well. The buffet lunch is also delicious. I highly advise everyone to book this tour. It is worth every penny.
