it is a nice trip with charming villages and colorful Inca people. Watch out the market days, these are very colorful and the people are not so awkward to tourists as in other places close by Mach Picchu

this is a great valley: on the way to it you have very nice landscapes and you can follow the river. Not a lot of tourists. There is a nice archeological site in Ollantaytambo.

We slept with Local famili in Patachanca village, and took a trek thru tarrases back to Ollaytaytambo. Fantastic 2-3hr trek thru beautiful scenery. Not very popular so you run away from tourists. Reccomended !
