This morning you will be picked up at your hotel and depart with your private guide for a full-day excursion to the village and ruins of Pisac located 20 miles from Cusco.
Along the road to Pisac, you may be interested to stop at Awana Kancha - an exhibition centre of textiles and American camels. Awana Kancha (Quechua name that means “The palace of the Weaver”) is located just off the highway and makes a nice stop for this interested in an outdoor museum for the four American Camelidaes (llama, vicuña, alpaca and guanaco), which are all found here. (Please let us know in advance if you would like to include this, free of charge).
After exploring the ruins you will visit the colorful Pisac market where you'll be able to trade with locals for a variety of handicrafts, including woolen sweaters and ponchos. The main colorful market days are Sundays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, although there is a smaller market daily. Lunch will be served in Urubamba, followed by a tour of the town and fortress of Ollantaytambo located in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Lunch is included.
We appreciate how you and your staff worked with us to pin down all the details to ensure a pleasant and interesting travel experience for our group.
