Definitely worth a trip, there is so much to see and explore in this valley! Unfortunately the tours you can book are a little dense so you don't have a lot of time at the sites or the markets. So if you have enough time, do individual trips to the separate sites on several days, you can enjoy it a... More

Visiting the Sacred Valley of the Incas is a must for anyone who is in Cusco, Peru and hasn't visited the sites before. There are a few tour operators available for this, that have different courses and options that operate at different times. I would suggest going to at least two to get a feel for prices and options available.... More

Wonderful Incan ruins, beautiful mountain scenery, lots of local activity in small villages along the way. Well worth the effort if you're visiting this area. I can't find a TripAdvisor page for the terraces at Ollantaytambo, but they are amazing and not to be missed if you are in the area. Lots of climbing, but really neat.

A must do Valley and sites. This is by far one of the prettiest places in all of Peru. Plenty of pre Inca and Inca sites to explore with beautiful terraces among the mountains. Perfect for pictures.

The scared valley was an amazing trip that was well worth the money depending on what tour company you go with! I went to several different places with this tour company in one day since the scared valley would have only been a few hours long. Beautiful view and amazing history for sure!

This Inca fortress is in some ways more impressive than Machu Picchu. The height of the stairs and terraces and the buildings high above is awesome. Climbing to the top takes some stamina but there is also much to see without climbing. The town itself is a wealth of Inca stone work and drainage conduits. Make sure to get off... More

Even more impressive than I thought it would be…just the vastness of the place! Stunningly beautiful. We took a taxi visiting Pisac ruins, Pisac market, Sacred Valley Brewing Company, and on the way back after a day visiting Machu Picchu, we visited Moray, Maras and Chinchero. A bit of altitude sickness (nothing major) on the last day but stunning views!
