City Tour Cusco
Cusco is a beautiful jewel of a city located in southern Peru. This tour is a perfect introduction to Cusco’s vibrant history. It includes Cusco’s main archaeological sights, including the Cathedral and Qoricancha (the temple of the sun) in the city, as well as the four main ruins on the outskirts of Cusco: Sacsayhuaman, Q’enqo, Tambomachay and Puka Pukara.
From Q’oricancha your group will walk down Avenida El Sol, where you will take your bus to climb up and just outside of the city. The 25 minute drive takes you to the majestic Inka site Sacsayhuaman with its enigmatic monoliths weighing as much as 200 tons. Your guide will offer an explanation of this phenomenal site and you will have extra time to do a bit of exploring on your own. From Sacsayhuaman it is a 5 minute bus ride to Q’enqo Inka site with its fascinating Inkan altars, then another 5 minute drive to Puca Pucara, a small, circular Inka site. The final stop on our tour is Tambomachay, a water temple thought to be used by the Inka for bathing, with its impressive water fountains. We’ll then drive back down to Cusco where the tour ends in the main square, unless you are taking a private tour, in which case we will return you to your hotel.
