Friendly and knowledgeable guide! We did a tour from Ollantaytambo to Maras salt mines and Moray with Carlitos and Cristobal. Carlitos was very knowledgeable and tailored the tour to what we already knew which was great. They also made the recommendation to start early which was a challenge but well worth it for the absence of crowds!

Great experience with a local guide I highly recommend this agency. We booked a trip with them from Ollantaytambo to Cusco visiting many unique sites of Sacred Valley on our way. Everything was well organised even though we contacted the agency quite late. The agency was very responsive and we kept in touch on WhatsApp all the time. Our guide Carlitos came on time and he was the nicest person ever, very patient with us and ready to take a lot of pictures. We learned a lot about Inca history from him. The whole day was a pleasure. Thank you guys for taking care of us! Thanks to you we fell in love with Peru even more.

Kickass personalized tour experience for a solo traveler, A++¥ Awesome company!! I am a solo woman and staying in Ollantaytambo and I wanted a tour package created just for me and they were able to do it. I saw the Maras salt flats, Moray, Pisac market, and Sacsayhuaman and it could not have been a more perfect day! The driver was a very safe driver and the guide spoke excellent English and took great pics. 10/10 recommend, you will not be disappointed!!

Wow! I totally didn't think we could do Machu Picchu in a day, but it is! The trip was EPIC! It was a full day but it was a blast! Macchu Picchu was incredible - I was weary that it was built up in my head (wonder of the world and all that) it was just wow. and made even more incredible by our guides - they knew the history, stories, and fun facts. They also made it feel like we were just traveling with friends - we loved our guides. highly recommend

The Best Day EVER! My friends and I did a private tour with Come See Peru Tours 1 day to Machu Picchu. It was a fantastic day! We definitely were moving all day (we got all of our steps :) ) But we didn't feel rushed at all - we truly got to enjoy machu picchu and aguas calientes. I enjoyed our tour guide and their stories both fact and myths about Machu Picchu. Highly recommend this tour company

Detailed Itineray of Inca Trail Sacred Valley

Itinerary

Day- 1 Cusco-Sacred Valley-Ollantaytambo

At 07:00 AM, we will be picking you up from your hotel in Cusco. Then in our private transport, we will be driving you to Chinchero.

Chinchero:

To Incas, Chinchero was the mythical birthplace of Rainbow.

Chinchero, one of the most typical towns of the Sacred Valley of the Incas, a town the Spaniards once attempted to incorporate their culture, but did not succeed completely because its inhabitants to this day refuse to leave aside the Inca culture and customs.

The village is popular for the Andean textile industry. People living here continue to dress in their colourful traditional outfits and speak Quechua. This stop is a perfect introduction to the Inca civilization.

The town is not only known for its Inca ruins, but also for its Andean Textile Interpretation Center. In this place, women dressed in traditional costumes give demonstrations on how to clean alpaca hair, how to dye the fibers, how to spin the fiber into yarn, etc. After the demonstration you can walk around and see the products for sale.

Moray:

Once you have had your fill of this site, we will continue the tour to Moray. This is possibly the most impressive sight in the valley. Moray is home to the mysterious circular farming terraces dug into the ground with different levels.

Legends say that each level has a different temperature. This allowed the Incas to determine the best weather condition needed to grow any crop. Moray served as an agricultural laboratory for the Incas.

Maras:

We will then visit Maras. Home to over 5000 salt puddles clinging to the slopes of the canyon, Maras produces the best salt in Peru. People here practise Solar evaporation mentos to extract salt. It has been passed down generation after generation.

They let in freshwaters in these salt pools and wait for it to evaporate. Then they manually scrape out salt. The salt here is pinkish in colour and tastes a bit different. It is also quite nutritious.

We will then visit Urubamba village. Here we will be stopping at a local restaurant where we will be serving you lunch. Urubamba is at a very low altitude in the whole Sacred Valley.

After relishing a traditional Andean lunch, we will be driving you to Ollantaytambo.

Ollantaytambo:

Dominated by two massive Inca ruins, this serene ancient village of Ollantaytambo is the best example of the Inca’s town planning. Designed with narrow cobblestoned streets, the town has been continuously inhabited since the 13th century.

Here we will be visiting the Inca site that nestles overlooking this picturesque village. After the tour, we will be accommodating you in an ensuite hotel room for the night.

Day-2 Short Inca trail – Machu Picchu

We will be picking you up at 0540 AM from your hotel in Ollantaytambo and transferring you to the train station. You will be embarking on a scenic train ride to Km.104, the starting point of the Short Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.

This full-day trek begins with a short uphill hike. We will be visiting an archaeological site called Chachabamba where you will get a detailed insight into the Inca civilization.

Wiñay Wayna:

Once you had your fill of Chachabamba, we will be hiking for two hours to Wiñay Wayna. In Quechua, the name signifies forever young. This is one of the most impressive sites along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.

Our tour guide will be giving you a detailed tour of the complex. After the tour, we will stop for lunch at the campsite.

We will then hike the last section of the Inca Trail to the emblematic Sungate. Only those on Inca Trail to Machu Picchu enter the citadel through Sungate. We will have a brief stop here so our guide will give you an introduction to the iconic lost city of Incas that would be in front of you.

We will be taking a bus down to Aguas Calientes town. Here we will be accommodating you in an ensuite hotel room for the night.

Day 3 Machu Picchu - Cusco

At 0600 AM, we will be taking the bus from Aguas Calientes to Machu Picchu. It will be a 25-minute drive up to the lost city of the Incas. As you will be entering the citadel, you will witness the golden rays of the morning sun shimmering on the mortar walls of Machu Picchu.

Our guide will be giving you a detailed two hours tour of the complex. On this tour, you will be visiting the main square, remains of the quarters and Inca temples, ceremonial sites and more.

After the tour, you will have some free time. If you have booked to hike Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu mountain, our guide will be directing you to the respective trailhead.

We will then take a bus back to Aguas Calientes. Here you will be boarding the train back to Ollantaytambo. Our representative will be meeting you on arrival and will be transferring you back to your hotel in Cusco.
