Tour the Sacred Valley with Tucan Travel

Exploring The Heartland Of The Inca

Nestled deep within the Andes of Peru, the beautiful Rio Urubamba Valley—better known as the Sacred Valley—starts about 9 miles (15km) north of the ancient Incan capital of Cusco and stretches all the way to Ollantaytambo. The Sacred Valley was a key site for the Incas because of its fertile soil and favorable climate. It is home to many important ruins, markets, and towns en route from Cusco to Machu Picchu that shouldn’t be missed.

Customer Reviews

Katie

"We completed the Sacred Valley and Inca Trail trip with Tucan. It was a 7 day 6 night trip and all the accommodation and most of the meals were provided in the price. The guides provided were very friendly and very knowledgeable and the 2 guides stayed with the group for the whole trip. The setup of the hike was amazing, the porters were great and prepared delicious meals and prepared all the tents so when you arrive at the destination you could relax. I found the whole trip great value for money and would recommend Tucan to anyone about to take on the Inca Trail."
