From ancient ruins to bustling markets, experience the famous Sacred Valley of the Incas, visiting the only Inca Fortress to have withstood Spanish attack, learning about the ceremonial center of every Inca town, the Sun Temple, and seeing how Quechua populations still maintaining their pre-Columbian traditions still farm along Inca agricultural terraces.
Bring a sweater or jacket you can don in the morning and evening and sunblock and hat for the afternoon sun.
Entry to Archeological Sites in and around Cusco is controlled by the Tourist Ticket. The General Tourist Ticket is good for 10 days, costs S/.130 ($45)and includes entry to the Sacred Valley Archeological Sites visited in this tour, as well as the sites within and on the outskirts of the city of Cusco (Sacsayhuamán, Qorikancha, Tambomachay, Q'enko, Puka Pukara). If you are planning on touring sites in the city of Cusco as well, the General Tourist Ticket is necessary.
If you are only planning on visiting the sites included in this tour, and not those in the city of Cusco, then you may opt for the Partial Tourist Ticket for Sacred Valley sites which costs S/.70 ($24) and is sufficient for this tour.
Tourist tickets can be bought at the first archeological site you visit where it is necessary for entrance and there is a student discount of 50% with valid ISIC card, up to 25 years old.
