What You Can Expect
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.
My guide, Liliana, provided a most interesting tour of parts of the historic center. She provided historical background as well as perspective on contemporary life. Liliana was personable, and well informed about a variety of topics.
I originally had little interest in the pisco sour lesson but wound up quite enjoying it.
Best Pisco Sour you will have ever... Great experience for an evening in Cusco... Liliana made the trip as a tour guide. She had so much knowledge and took the time to answer questions.
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.
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.
Pisco sour lesson was the best part
Our guide, Lilliana, was great and knew all the history of the town. The local market was an awesome addition to the tour and the climb up the hill to see the view after the sun set was phenomenal. The Pisco Sour bar was way better than I had expected and we had a blast learning how to make the local drinks.
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!
Great tour of the marketplace and neighborhoods in Cusco; wonderful lesson on making and appreciating a Pisco Sour. I had a wonderful time!
Lillianna, our guide was wonderful... very informative and a great way to see the city and get tips on where and where not to go. On our own, we would never have gone through the market and learned about the local foods and culture. The Pisco sour lesson was a blast and great way to end the tour. Would definitely recommend as a way to learn about the city and end with a drink!!!
We did this tour our last day in Cusco and it was the perfect way to end it. Our tour guide Lilianna was very knowledgeable and thorough. The trip to the San Pedro market was interesting and really helped to get a glimpse of everyday life in Cusco. The walk around the bohemian district of San Blas was quaint and provided excellent views of the city. My favorite part of the tour was the Pisco Sour tasting and lesson on how to make one. We even got to get behind the bar to create our own Pisco Sour.
