Itinerary

Sacred Valley of the Incas or Urubamba Valley is a huge valley which encompasses over 100 km/ 63 miles of distance, where the Incan civilization took all the valley as they were conquering to the jungle side of Cusco, this valley offered them a great climate to develop the agriculture, reason of that today the farming terraces are still laying along the valley or adorning any mountain as a patch, as well as, the climate was the main factor to start their palaces and temples along the valley and today those places are the must-see ones while your trip to Cusco and Machu Picchu.

The popular part of Sacred Valley of the Incas is located between Pisac and Ollantaytambo, this part of the valley draws many visitors, a section where Chinchero, Maras salt ponds, Moray, and other Incan ruins are located. The name of Sacred Valley is not from the Incan times, it is part of modern Inca inspired myths, based on the special importance that this valley had in the ancient Incan days. There are endless chances to explore its natural landscapes, ancient ruins, as well as living and ancient cultures.

4. We are Local Entrepreneurs, A Family Enterprise (we are not a gringo company)

Probably you will see that most of the tour operators mention it on their websites that are local tour companies, however, if you research a little deeper you will find out that’s not true, they might be although half of the operation is done from here and another half abroad, they even have NorthAmerican phone number or European phone numbers, which is a clue to find out, we are not against the foreigner companies or half foreign companies, what we are against is that they lie.

In Cusco exist just few truly local tour operators. If you did not know, foreign companies come to Peru to get rich without paying a General Sales Tax or Tax Contribution to our country. If you did not know that, according to the United Nations, for every US $100 spent on a tour in a developing country or foreign travel companies, only $5 stays in the local economy. Normally, almost all of the money flows back to large companies operating outside the destination countries. As we are a local family enterprise, we guarantee that your travel expenditures will support the local economy, and improve the lives of Peruvians through contributing to general sales tax.
