In the shadows of the mountains east of the Sacred Valley lies the traditional Andean town of Pisac. The town center is a thriving hub of commerce that still operates as it has since Incan times; with stalls filling the plaza selling everything under the Peruvian sun, and locals coming down from the highlands to exchange their produce for necessities as well as luxuries in a trade called “trueque”.

You will also visit the Pisac ruins, a very important city during Inca times and the only Inca site apart from Machu Picchu with a stone sun dial. Your expert guide will explain the history of the site and the most interesting temples and structures, and you will be able to enjoy a breathtaking view of the countless agricultural terraces leading down to the Urubamba River and the Sacred Valley of the Incas.

The day wouldn´t be complete without exploring Ollantaytambo, the oldest continuously occupied settlement in the Americas, and the best surviving example of Inca city planning. Although the impressive fortress was still under construction during the time of the Spanish conquest, and was never completed, it is very well preserved and marks the site of one of the few major losses the Spanish suffered during the conquest.

We found the team of Judi Glass/McCabe World Travel (in the U.S.) and Empire Peru to be first class. They were knowledgeable, organized, responsive and provided excellent communication throughout the process. We worked together on options that fit our varied interests and budget. Weeks prior to our departure, they sent a detailed itinerary complete with descriptions of our excursions as well as recommendations for restaurant, shopping and points of interest in every city we were visiting. The daily guides were exceptional and provided great insight and information to each of our adventures AND...they were quick to satisfy our every need. Our accommodations were unique and we felt we received a lot of value for our investment. If you are planning a trip to Peru, we would highly recommend Judi Glass at McCabe World Travel/Empire Peru. Thanks again for the wonderful memories!
