What You Can Expect
Next, head to the small village of Huaro for a short stop to visit its 16th-century church, known for its remarkable murals by artist Tadeo Escalante. Then re-board your coach for the final stop of your tour – the Museum of Sacred Stones. With your guide, discover over 200 of the museum’s ancient geological artifacts. You'll see functional and utilitarian stones used on pipes, wheels and more as well as stones used for ceremonial purposes.
You’ll be back in Cusco and dropped off at your hotel in time to enjoy a full evening!
This was excellent!
Good tour except we should get credit as the guide told us there is no museum of sacred stones tour even though the tour title name suggests it and tour description says so. Victor needs to give a credit I believe and not in the form of a future tour as we are leaving the area. Also guide should wait until all the group is at his stopping point before starting his various presentations. He should use the mike in the bus as well or ask the group to move to the front seats.
