What You Can Expect

Cusco Night Walking Tour and Pisco Sour Lesson

Explore the market in Cusco for local foods!

Meet your knowledgeable guide at Plaza de Armas in the heart of Cusco, and begin your small-group tour with a stroll through the historic square dating back to the time of the Incas. Admire the Renaissance-style Cathedral from the 17th century, and then gaze at the baroque façade of Jesuit church La Compania, originally constructed in the 16th century. Learn about both edifices built on sites that were formerly Incan palaces.

Follow your guide out of the square onto streets lined with remnants of Incan walls, gigantic blocks of granite fitting together perfectly without mortar, which stand side by side with colonial architecture. At the palace of Inca Roca, you’ll see fitted into the wall a 12-angled stone, a unique example of Incan masonry.

Continue up a hill to San Blas, a charming square with bohemian flair, and walk past artist studios, handicraft markets and glittering city views.

After the sightseeing, your pisco sour lesson begins. As you head to a bar specializing in this drink, listen as your guide tells your group about the beverage and its place in Peruvian history. At the bar, try a few different flavors of pisco, learn all about the distillation process and how this delicious cocktail is made. Finally, put on your mixologist hat and try your hand at making your very own pisco sour.

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

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

We lucked out and ended up getting a one on one tour with the guide for this tour. The market tour was very interesting and the pisco sour lesson was great! Would definitely recommend for a less formal, fun tour of the city.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

The guide was attentive to questions, suggested many photograph opportunities, and incorporated many sites into the tour. The tour was leisurely, and not conducted in a hurried way. Upon conclusion of the tour, I felt as though I had been introduced to the Cusco community.
