Archeological Park of Sacsayhuaman Half-Day Tour

After hotel pickup in Cusco, begin your journey into the heart of the mountains in an air-conditioned minivan. Enjoy a brief stop at Tambomachav, the sacred source of a natural spring formerly worshipped by Incas.  Listen to your guide as enthralling explanations of the pool’s functions are provided. 

Next, venture to the atmospheric ruins of Qengo, a perplexing labyrinth with a sacrificial altar in its center. Marvel at the spiraling staircases and secret channels of a site reputed to have been home to Incan rituals. 

Continue to the world-renowned park of Sacsayhuaman to uncover the archaeological mysteries of the ancient site; appreciate the panoramic vistas of Cusco before you embark upon an enriching exploration. Observe the intricate carvings of colossal stones, searching the solid 9-meter (30-foot) blocks for depictions of pumas, snakes and condors, images that represent the three Incan worlds.  

Conclude your tour at the majestic Tower of Pucca Pucara, a foreboding fortress whose aqueducts, springs and waterways are sure to impress. Relax during the journey back to your Cusco hotel, where the tour concludes.

We had a wonderful experience with out tour guide, Marinés. She was personable, well-informed, interesting and spoke English very well. She arrived on time and took us to the four Inca sights located outside of Cusco. I would definitely recommend her as a guide and recommend Viator.

Fantastic tour. The guide was very informative, and because we arrived at the sites early there were very few people there.

Great tour! It was slower paced that the guide was more than happy to take pictures for me--a great way to see the site as a solo traveler!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2013

From pick-up to drop-off the tour was exactly as described and timed (practically to the minute). Felt like a private tour (two of us and three other people) in our own tour van with driver and guide. Guide was informative, able to answer all the questions - good English. Qenqo, Tambomachay, and Pucca Pucara were very interesting, but the highlight - walking beside the massive stone walls of Sacsayhuaman fortress. Of the tours we did in Cusco, this was the most interesting and the best.
