Overview

Full Day tour Exploration of the Sacred Valley of the Incas

The Sacred Valley tour full day is in the region of Peru that stretches along the Urubamba River, between the towns of Pisac and Ollantaytambo. It was once the heartland of the Inca Empire and is home to many of its most impressive archaeological sites, including Machu Picchu, Ollantaytambo, Pisac, and Moray.

The Incas considered the valley sacred due to its natural beauty and fertile land. The area was also strategically important, linking the highlands and the jungle, making it a key location for trade and military expansion.

Today, the Sacred Valley is a popular tourist destination and is visited by thousands of people every year who come to explore its ancient ruins, experience traditional Andean culture, and enjoy its stunning landscapes. It is also a gateway to Machu Picchu, one of the most famous and spectacular archaeological sites in the world.
