On the Cusco guided tour you can see why the United Nations has designated Cusco to be part of the Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Come with us and experience the incredible mixture of both incan and spanish-style. You will also have the opportunity to explore Cusco’s main streets and back alleys. The unique charm of the City Tour in Cusco will open your mind, show you how to appreciate our millenial culture, and make you a better world traveller. Our cusco day trip is a must-do when you arrive in the imperial city.
You can take the Half Day City Tour Cusco in the morning or in the afternoon on a small group tour. First you’ll visit the imposing Plaza de Armas and the Cusco Cathedral. The Cusco Cathedral is very important because inside you will find the paintings of the Cusco School of Artists, and learn how the Spanish conquistadors imposed Christianity on the natives. Next you will visit the Incan Temple of the Sun, the Coricancha. Historians tell us that during Incan times this was the most important religious site in their empire (Tahuantinsuyo).
Then we will head out of the city and up to the immense Fortress of Sacsayhuaman. It is a mystery as to how this site was constructed. The stone blocks are as big as a truck, and they fit together perfectly. No mortar was used. Our next stop will be Qenco. Here you will walk through underground passageways, and marvel at the carved rocks. This carved limestone formation is full of subterranean passages and decorated with mythical figures. Before arriving at Tambomachay you will have a gudied tour of the fortress of Puca Pucara.
The final stop of our tour will be the beautiful fountains of Tambomachay. At Tambomachay the Incas worshipped the spirirt of water. Just across the street from Tambomachay you will encounter local Indian ladies ready to offer you great deals on handmade local crafts such as sweaters, ponchos, mantas, and hats. After the tour we will drop you off near the Plaza de Armas in Cusco. Our tours are extremely flexible allowing our visitors to create and enjoy a memorable experience.
