After some orientation about Sacred Valley tours I decided to do a private daytour in Pisac and Ollantaytambo. If you look at the pictures of these two sites, you can imagine how much time they require for a decent tour. If you add up the rest what typical tours offer on a single day, plus the time of bilangual guidance,... More

Pisac was awe inspiring not just for its views but for the sheer scale of the construction 40% of which is underground in the drainage system below the terraces themselves. The views after the climb to the village ruins are well worth all the huffing and puffing

We saw several Incan sites while touring Peru, and they are amazing. This one is no exception. The site is huge and covers five different areas within the overall settlement. Lots of climbing and walking, but the views of the surrounding mountains were fabulous. Not to be missed if you're touring the Sacred Valley.

From all the local Indian market that we have seen ( and we've seen a lot!!!!), the Pisac market was definitely one of the better one. The whole city center transforms daily into an open air market and the goods are somewhat of little better quality. More silver, potteries and better crafted items.

We loved both the Sunday Market -- it was off-season, and though touristy, very few tourists -- and our visit to the ruins above the City of Pisac. But, since what I read about the ruins beforehand was very confusing and since I saw several groups of tourists completely baffled by the signs and lost, let me tell you what... More

This is such a beautiful Valley with terraced mountains and beautiful Inca villages and architecture. Great views from atop the mountains and the ruins and still in pretty good shape. Great place for pictures.

The scale of this site is incredible. It is worth a stop on a trip round the area. I recommend walking round the whole site but be careful if it is a hot day.

Anyone coming to Cusco, I highly recommend a visit to Pisac. It is such a cute little Town and perfect for a Day Trip. Visit the ruins on the Top, look around the market and enjoy some nice Lunch at one of the many great restaurants. Also a great place for a lot of ceremonies and Yoga.

The famous markets at Pisac. What can I say, other than : walk them for a couple of hours. There is no tourist that will resist picking up a Peruvian memorabilia. Also a great place for colourful and picturesque photos.

This was one of the highlights of my Sacred Valley visit. Make sure you visit the ruins ( and not just the market). Lovely sights, try doing the hike to come down, well worth the walk.
