Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu 2 Day Tour Details
Sacred Valley Machu Picchu Tour

The Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu 2 Day Tour is designed to give you an unforgettable experience on your trip to one of the seven world wonders, Machu Picchu. Our Sacred Valley Machu Picchu tour offers a perfect introduction to the Inca Civilization before visiting their emblematic site – Machu Picchu

Sacred Valley or as it is locally known, Valle Sagrado is located along the Vilcanota segment of the Urubamba River. Farming was the main occupation of the Incas. They were so devoted to their profession that they built an agricultural laboratory just to determine the best weather condition needed to grow any crop. 

Villages in the Sacred Valley favored them. Apart from being closer to Cusco City (the former capital of the Incas), the valley has the most fertile soil. The Incas built plenty of farming terraces and settlements here. 

Most traditional villages here are well preserved. Farming and other professions are passed down from generation to generation. In fact, most people living in the valley speak with each other in their traditional language, Quechua. 

Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu 2 Day Tour

On this two days Sacred Valley Machu Picchu tour,  we will be visiting some of the iconic sites in the valley. This will give you a deeper understanding of the Inca civilization and how proudly the people here have preserved it.
