At your hotel
We’ll meet you at your hotel in Cusco, if it is close enough to the center we will walk but if needed we can provide private transport instead.
In the center we first visit the Plaza de Armas to explore the beautiful cathedral and watch the locals and tourists in the vibrant heart of the city. Take some time to soak up this unique atmosphere, learn about the city’s local history, and admire its beautiful architecture.
We continue walking the ancient cobbled streets of the Inca Empire historic capital to Coricancha, where we will visit the Temple of the Sun. Here your expert guide will explain a bit more about the rich history and culture including the different building methods used by the Incas, and the clashes with Catholicism.
Our private transport will take us on a short scenic ride to the site of Tambomachay, an Inca archaeological site located just outside Cusco. We explore it together.
Our transport takes us here next. Q'enqo is considered one of the biggest holy places in area around Cusco. Carved surface of massive rock formation is especially impressive, and is source of many theories of what exactly it represented to the Inca culture. This is the second archaeological site we will explore together.
We drive to the third and most impressive archaeological site near Cusco: a citadel on the northern outskirts of the city. Entry to this UNESCO World Heritage-listed archaeological site is included. As you walk around with your private guide exploring each ruin, you’ll gain a better understanding of the citadel’s history and purpose. Admire the perfect constructions, designs and shapes built by the Incas and the symbolism behind them.
We finish the tour back in Cusco's main square. Why not sample some delicious street food? Our local guide will take pride in sharing with you how to continue on your own to experience the city, including the best museums to visit, where to get a relaxing massage or do some shopping, where to eat, sample Pisco Sours or enjoy some live music in the evening.
