Itinerary

Regardless of the time of day (morning or afternoon), i.e.: City Tour in the morning or Cusco City Tour in the afternoon, we will start with our guided tour of the city of Cusco, visiting first the impressive Cathedral of Cusco, located next to the Plaza de Armas of Cusco. In this important colonial temple, we will observe the Andean baroque architecture and the best examples of Andean religious art, as well as some colonial paintings.

Then we will go to the Qoricancha (the largest Inca temple dedicated to the sun) where we will observe the most beautiful Inca architecture and important colonial paintings of the Cusco school.

After visiting the Qoricancha, we will head to the outskirts of Cusco to visit the four tourist attractions that make up the Sacsayhuaman Archaeological Park: the ceremonial fortress of Sacsayhuaman, the amphitheater of Qenqo, the military fortress of Puca Pucara and the fountains of the water temple of Tambomachay.

During the guided tour of Sacsayhuaman, we will pass by impressive temples, sacred enclosures and platforms that were built with huge blocks of stone. And from its viewpoint, we will also observe the imposing city of Cusco in all its grandeur, as well as the most important mountains that protect it and the magnificent landscapes that surround Sacsayhuaman.

In addition, near Sacsayhuaman, we will visit a handicraft center to see the works of art created by the hands of Cusco artisans: traditional weavings (in alpaca and baby alpaca) and gold and silver jewelry (necklaces, bracelets and earrings). And if you want to take home a nice souvenir, this is the place to buy it.

Finally, in the last part of the tour, we will visit Qenqo, Puca Pucara and Tambomachay.

After the guided tour, we will return to Cusco, and we will take you to Plaza Regocijo (one block from Cuscos Main Square), so you can continue visiting, on your own, the other wonders of the majestic city of Cusco.
