Cusco City Tour
the opportunity to explore Cusco and learn about it from a historic and cultural perspective.
Your guide will give you a thorough tour at every site along the way, teaching you about the architecture and ancient traditions, as well as customs that local people continue to practice today. The tour starts at 1:00 pm and finishes about 6:00 pm.
We will pick you up from your hotel at 1:00 pm and will begin the tour at the most important temple of the Inca Empire, the Sun Temple, known as the Qoricancha.
Here, you can observe detailed and intact architecture, and within the temple you will see smaller temples dedicated to the moon, rainbow, stars, lightning and thunder, among others. Today, the Santo Domingo church stands on top of the temple. From there, we will go to an important religious site called Sacsayhuamán which features immense stones.
Carlos, the best walking tour guide in action, mesmerizes his audience with Inca history and huaca facts.
Join our daily tours and explore Cusco like never before.
Although the site was religious, the Spanish considered it a military fortress because of its location and the way it was built.
Next, we will visit Qenqo,
a site built in a natural rock formation which was created to represent the Andean constellations and the concept of the three worlds, each one representing sacred animals: the condor, puma, and snake.
After that we will travel to Puka Pukara,
which was a shelter for travelers coming to Cusco from the Amazon. It was also a military center and used to protect the nearby temple located at Tambomachay.
Our last stop is Tambomachay,
known as the Temple of Water, where the Incas practiced religious traditions tied to water in order to rejuvenate the land. This tradition is known as the fountain of eternal youth. From there, we will return to the city and drop you off at your hotel at around 6:00 pm.
