The South Valley Tour Cusco will let you discover some of the areas most beautiful ancient constructions. South Valley Cusco is not famous like Machu Picchu, but is well worth your time and effort. Tipon itself will stick in your memory and haunt your dreams. Tipon was a very important place during the time of the Incas. This site is dedicated to the element, water, which is the key ingredient of life. The fountains of Tipon fertilized the rich soil of the terraces so that the Incan royalty and the Andean people could eat well. To this day Tipon feels like a sacred place, and everyone who visits here is surprised by the beauty and tranquility of the site.

Itinerary

Day 1:
Tour South Valley

In the morning, we will begin our tour of the Valley south of the City. This tour of Tipon, Piquillaqta, and Andahuaylillas takes in some of the most beautiful places in the Cusco area. You will visit iconic locations that are somewhat off the beaten path. You will see Peru’s legacy from pre-Incan, Incan, and colonial points of view.

We will start out by visiting the traditional San Pedro market of Cusco. Here you will see the local people buying, selling, and enjoying the locally grown agricultural products. (The visit to the San Pedro Market is only available in private service; regular tours do not visit this old traditional market in the center of Cusco.)

Next we will drive south of the city of Cusco to go see one on the great marvels of Incan hydraulic engineering, Tipon. The amazing construction of Tipon is admired by engineers, architects, and visitors from all over the world. The surrounding countryside is also very picturesque.

After Tipon we will continue our journey of exploration at Piquillaqta, This site was once a cult headquarters and an administrative center for the great pre-Incan Wari culture. The Wari Empire thrived from the 6th through the 9th century, A.D. Piquillaqta is a fine example of their planned urban engineering.

Finally we will visit the Church of St. Peter, the Apostle, located in Andahuaylillas. This colonial era church will amaze you with its murals that cover the walls and the ceiling. The art work is so fine that the church is called “ the Sistine Chapel of the Americas.” After our journey to the fascinating South Valley we will return to Cusco. The whole trip takes about 5 and a half hours.

FAQs

Pick up of guests
Machu Picchu Vip can pick you up from your hotel, as long as it’s in the Historical Center of Cusco. Your guide will coordinate the pickup time in the briefing session, but please keep in mind that the time may vary between 20 and 35 minutes due to traffic.
Group Tours
Group tours are made up of different types of people, then physical conditions and ages can vary. By agreeing to be part of a group tour, you also accept that some people may be faster or slower than you. Therefore, each person can go at their own pace on the route. It may be the case that a group wishes to modify the tour; however, the guide will be the one who decides, after consulting with all the participants, if such modifications are possible.
Strikes in cusco
Are usually common in Peru, and this may interrupt some of our tours. Roads can be blocked, and train tracks can be taken over. However, we will try to keep your trip as originally planned, even if it means leaving the night before the scheduled date. Under these circumstances, tours may also be canceled. In case of changes or cancellations, everything will be coordinated with you by our operations department. Your safety is our highest priority, and our decisions will be made to protect it.
Lost objects
Please pay attention to where you leave your things and remember to take everything once you leave our transport, tents, or restaurants. You’re the only one responsible for your objects during the tour.
I can change or cancel my tour

Should I tip the guides?
How much is appropriate? A tip is voluntary, but the amount is at your discretion. Whatever you feel is appropriate based on the service you have received is fine; please remember to always be courteous and respectful with our guides.
