Hiring a taxi and guide Cusco-Sacred Valley

by toribeth0221

We are planning to visit Sacred Valley from Cusco. I know that a private taxi can be hired for the day for around $50-$60. Is it possible to also hire a guide to go with our group of 4-5 people? If so, approximately how much does it cost and how do you go about arranging for a guide to join us? Thank you!

Check your hotel/hostel in Cusco for any local guide they can recommend. Goodluck!

You've been really helpful - thanks for all your advice! Since we are not doing an "official" tour, we will buy our Machu Picchu entrance tickets ourselves. Do you know if it's possible to buy those in advance from the US or will we need to wait until we arrive in Cusco to purchase them? If we have to wait until we arrive, do you know if there is any risk of the entrance tickets being unavailable/sold out? (We are booking our trains today.)

You're quite welcome! It's good you've secured your train tickets today and got that over with. As to the MP entrance tickets, you'll have a lot of competition for them if you are going during tourist season (between May-September). No, you can cannot buy these tickets while in the US; however, you can have your hotel/hostel in either Cusco or Aguas Calientes buy it for you in advance & pay them when you get there for your "peace of mind." If you want to wait until you get there, you can buy these tickets yourself in either Cusco or AC. Check my MP page under "warning tip" on where to get these tickets if you were to buy it on your own. Goodluck!

Travel Tips for Cusco

A certain spanish flavour

by SirRichard

As you wander around this lovely city you can feel the influence of the conquerors in its architecture, streets, ambiance... You could find a very similar (maybe smaller) main square in some spanish city, specially in Castilla or Extremadura, the regions where the first invaders came from.

Tourist Ticket

by Amareyui

Most sightseeing in Cusco requires a tourist ticket, which includes admission to La Catedral, Iglesia de San Blas, Museo de Arte Religioso del Arzobispado, Museo de Arte y Monasterio de Santa Catalina, the site museum at the Qorikancha, Museo Municipal de Arte Contemporaneo, Museo Historico Regional, and the nearby ruins of Sacsayhuaman, Qenco, Puka Pukara, Tambomachay, Pisac, Ollantaytambo, Chinchero, Tipon, and Pikillacta.

Can be purchased at the municipal tourist office.
(US$15, US$10 for student)

Las Salinas de Maras

by Maillekeul

Take a bus to Urubamba, stop in Chichero (see my page about this city), and then take a cab (negociate the price !) to go and see the wonderful salinas of Maras (go and see my Maras page, if you don't feel like going there !).

Prenez un bus pour Urubamba, arretez-vous a Chichero (je vous renvoie a ma page sur cette ville) et prenez un taxi (negociez bien le prix !) jusqu-aux salinas de Maras (si vous ne sentez pas d'y aller, faites un tour sur ma page Maras)

Taxi - Around CUSCO

by XKuger

Always carry exact change. Taxi's to most areas around cusco is only a couple of Soles or more.

However whenever you break a 10 Sole note. The taxi drivers all miracelously don't have change.

So make sure that you have exact change before you jump into a cab. Also pre-negotiate your cab fare.

Most times I found they were fair in what they demanded but a couple of times I had some cab drivers who were trying to take me for a ride.

Pancakes or other sweets

by kare_ab about Granja Heidi

For all of you, who love sweet nice desserts it's a MUST to go to Heidi's. It's not the cheapest, but one of the most delicious restaurant.
(You can eat as well main dishes as desserts, but I've never tried a main dish, as it's very expensive - for Peru) Swiss or German bakery - mhm.....
