Sacred Valley Tours

Sacred Valley tours explore the area between Cusco and UNESCO site Machu Picchu. This is a beautiful area of mountain landscapes, Inca ruins and traditional Peruvian towns. While it is possible to take a Sacred Valley tour from Cusco for the day, we recommend staying at least a night (preferably two or even three) in the valley itself as there is a lot to see and do. Read on to learn about the Sacred Valley and the most popular tours and destinations. Every Sacred Valley tour can be customized and combined with other places to make your ideal Peru travel package.
