What You Can Expect

Cusco Market Tour and Pisco Sour Lesson

Explore the market in Cusco for local foods!

Meet your friendly guide at Plaza Regocijo in the heart of Cusco, and begin your small-group pisco tour with a stroll to a local market. With your guide by your side you’ll learn about Peru’s market culture and experience daily life in Cusco.

Meander past the stands and taste the local treats — from fresh fruit to delicious Peruvian chocolate (own expense). Find local handicrafts made here and peruse the shaman stores that sell charms and other cultural oddities for unique souvenirs to take home with you.

While you wander through the bustling market, your guide tells your small group about the traditional pisco sour and its place in Peruvian history. Then stop at a local bar to try a few different flavors of pisco! During your lesson, learn all about the distillation process and how this sour drink is made. Finally, put on your mixologist hat and try your hand at making your very own cocktail, using the knowledge that you’ve picked up along the way.

Sip your unique creation at the bar in central Cusco, where your tour concludes.

Our guide Lilliana took us to the food market near plaza san francisco. I think it was called santa Clara. We got to see the different animals parts, meet and vegetables. Our guide even bought us a prickly pear to try. I bought coca tea there and peruvian chocolate with quinoa.
We then went to the san blas area which is the artsy part. We didn't see many artisans due to the rain, but it was really great to see.
We finished up the tour at a bar called museo de pisco. The bartender amodeo demonstrated how to make a pisco sour then we got to make our own! We got behind the bar! It was really neat! After the tour i bought a bottle of pisco to take home with me!
