The Sacred Valley of the Incas Cusco.

I spent 2 days on the tourist trail from Cusco, visiting the beautiful area known as the Scared Valley of the Incas. You will need to buy a tourist ticket before entering any of the sites, from Municipaldad office in Cusco. Then you can take a taxi or like I did joined the tourists on the bus and paid for a tour guide. Its a long day and the tour guide give you lots of interesting information.
