Tour rundown:

  • After picking you up from your hotel, our tour will start in Sacsayhuaman, one of the emblematic buildings of the Inca Empire (just a few minutes from the center of the city and a UNESCO World Heritage Site) built by the Inca Pachacutec in the 15th Century. It is a vast fortress built from huge stones. How they were transported and worked is still a mystery. It has been calculated that what we see today is only twenty percent of the original structure because when the Spanish arrived they used its stones for new buildings such as the cathedral.
  • Continuing with our tour we’ll visit Qenko, which is considered as an underground chamber where its supposed processes of mummifications were made. In the same route, we’ll visit Puca Pucara, a large fortress which name means red fortress and is taken from the red granite that was used in its construction and furthermore the site of Tambomachay with its complex system of channels which carry water through a set of terraces until the flow is divided and falls over two small cascades.
  • To end our tour we will return to Cusco to visit the traditional San Pedro Market and enjoy the history, variety of products like crafts, local fruits, vegetables, and bread as well as the warm hospitality offered by locals to people alike.
