Cusco is not only the largest tourist hub in Peru because of its proximity to many cultural heritage sites. The city itself is living testimony of an incredibly long history. Because of this history, exploring Cusco is a great way, to get first impressions of the different cultures and influences that shaped Peru’s history and to prepare yourself for the trips to many wonders in the surrounding region, like Machu Picchu, the sacred Valley or the Rainbow Mountain. Visit the temple of Qoricancha and the archeological sites of Sacsayhuaman, Qenqo, Puka Pukara and Tambomachay.

access_time10 : 00 AM
Our tour begins at 10 AM at our hotel in Cusco. We will be picked up and brought to the tour bus, which will take us to all the stops of our tour. The first stop will be Sacsayhuaman.
Sacsayhuaman is located just 3km outside of Cusco and is the architecturally considered the most impressive citadel of the Inca. To this day, the site of Sacsayhuaman also hosts the the “Inti Raymi”, the party of the sun, on every 24th of June. From here we will continue to Qenko, which was a religious and ceremonial location for many of the Inca’s traditions.
The next stop is Puca Pucara, an old tambo, one of the ancient Incan Guardposts and rest stops along their main roads. After visiting Pucapucara, we will head to the last destination of our tour: Tambomachay. In this place, the ancient Incas worshipped the water and is known as the spring of eternal youth.
After we end our guided tour, we will visit a traditional market, where we can buy souvenirs from the local artisans. We will then end our tour at the Regocijo Square in Cusco around 1:00 p.m.
