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

Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu 2 Day Tour popularly known as Sacred Valley Machu Picchu Tour, will give you a detailed insight into the culture of Incas. You will also get an overview of the history. 

Both Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu played a significant role during the Inca civilization. As farming was the prime source of income, the Incas considered the valley sacred due to its extremely fertile land. 

In fact sites like Moray were used as an agricultural laboratory. The Incas built distinct circular terraces with different levels which allowed them to experiment with the best weather condition needed to grow a crop. 

The farming terraces of Moray, which barely resembles the Roman Amphitheatre, have different temperatures at each level. Legends say that there is a difference of 20 degrees celsius between the top and the bottom level. 

Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu 2 Day Tour begins with a full-day Sacred Valley tour with our local English-speaking tour guide. You will be visiting some of the prominent archaeological sites. 

On this tour, you will get an introduction to the Inca civilization. After the full-day tour, you will be taking a train to Aguas Calientes town. 

The second day offers a full-day tour of Machu Picchu citadel. After a guided tour, you will be taking a train back to Ollantaytambo town and onward to your hotel in Cusco city.
