Hotel pick-up

The City Tour Cusco will start with the pick up at our hotel in Cusco at 10:00 am. Then, we will be taken to the tourist bus that will take us to all the stops of our tour. 


Our first stop will be Sacsayhuaman, located 3 km from Cusco. It is one of the most impressive architectural citadels of the Incas with structures weighing up to 125 tons. How could the Incas have built these structures of an unlikely weight and size at that time?

Our next stop will be Qenqo, a religious and ceremonial site for many of the Inca traditions. Qenqo is a Quechua word meaning labyrinth and refers to the subway galleries and canals on stone in the form of a zigzag. 

Puka Pukara

Next we will arrive at Puka Pukara, one of the ancient Inca Guard posts and rest stops along its main roads.
