  • Puca Pucara: Meaning Reddish Place, that was used as a military control center.

After breakfast, we will pick you up from your hotel at 8:00.

Pisac is located at the entrance of the Sacred Valley. The Valley is 31 km (19 mi) away from Cusco and at an altitude of 2,970 m (9,700 ft). Followed by Pisac is Urubamba, where we will have a delicious buffet lunch at Tunupa restaurant. Then, we continue through to Ollantaytambo, the oldest continuously occupied town on the American continent.

The narrow streets of Ollantaytambo, along with their canals, have not changed much from the time of the Inca Empire. They evoke their ancestral inheritance and give you a feeling of what it would be like to live during this time. The last visit will be the Chinchero market. Chinchero is believed to be the mythical birthplace of the rainbow. Its major claim to tourism is its colorful Sunday market which is much less tourist-orientated than the market at Pisac. In the end, we will drop you back at the Plaza de Armas in Cusco at approximately 18:30.
