Sacred Valley of the Incas Tour
The Sacred Valley tour is a perfect excursion for couples, friends, or families arriving at the city of Cusco.
In this valley, the Incas built innumerable works such as aqueducts, irrigation canals, terraces, astronomical-scientific observation centers, and spiritual activity centers. To our good fortune, to this day these works remain mostly intact.
If you are looking to recharge your batteries, appreciate nature in its purest state and learn how our ancestors lived, we recommend taking this tour to the Sacred Valley in just one day.
