SACRED VALLEY JOURNEYS
The incredible Sacred Valley of the Incas is located along the Urubamba river and offers a wealth of things to see --the Inca ruins of Pisac and Ollantaytambo are at either end of the valley and in between we offer tours of ancient Inca salt mines, amphitheatres, local farms and non-touristic markets and unique cultural and culinary tours. These journeys can be combined with other tours.
Classic Chinchero Maras, Moray, Salineras, & Ollantaytambo
This is the perfect tour to combine with a trip to Machu picchu as it finishes in Ollantaytambo, the starting point for the train journey to Aguas Calientes.
Salt Mines, Moray, Local School Visit, Pachamanca Lunch & Chinchero
This tour takes you to visit two incredible sites in the Sacred Valley and to the weaving cooperative at Chinchero; the salt mines of Maras and the Incan agricultural laboratory of Moray. We will also have the chance to visit a local school that is the site of one of our social projects.

Private Ollantaytambo & Pisac Ruins Tour, Farm Visit & Gourmet Picnic Lunch--Make Your Own Chicha!
This tour takes you to places that are off of the normal tourist route, and can start from your hotel in Cusco, the Sacred Valley or Ollantaytambo. Our goal is to show you how locals live and work their land. Highlights of the day include a visit to a bustling local market in Urubamba where we will taste some of the many fruits and vegetables in the Sacred Valley and learn about the ingredients needed to make chicha, a corn beer that has been an important part of Peruvian culture since Inca times.
Combine a visit to majestic ruins with a picnic lunch and the Parque de Papas or "Park of potatoes" and a healthy, gourmet picnic prepared by our amazing chef.
