This 4-hour tour of Cusco and the Inca Empire’s sites starts with a hotel pickup by bus a little before 1:30pm. Please take note that the regular tour doesn’t include any entrance fees or access tickets. If you’d like to have that taken care of, please upgrade to the all-inclusive tour option — otherwise, you’ll have to pay entrance fees at the different sites.
The first stop of your tour is at Plaza de Armas. Follow your guide to an ancient Inca church, and hear stories about how the empire came to thrive. After, walk to Qorikancha, one of the most important temples to the Inca people. Admire the architecture of the temple, and take notice of a high altar made of bronze.
Keep trekking on foot over to Avenida El Sol, and hop on your bus for a short 20-minute ride just outside the city to Sacsayhuaman. Sacsayhuaman was the historic capital of the Inca Empire, and your guide tells you a lot about the empire's history here. Your last stops of the tour include the sites of Q’enqo, Puka Pukara, and Tambomachay.
Travel back to your hotel by bus, and arrive there at about 5:30pm — just in time to make plans for dinner.

The tour guide picked us up promptly at our hotel, the tour guide, Roger was great and very friendly. The only issue with this tour is that it does not mention in the original booking on the Viator website that in addition to the price shown you will need to pay for all of the excursion fees. What would be helpful would be to include all of the excursion fees as a guideline so that you know what to expect as a whole, otherwise it is misleading advertising. We ended up having to buy a ticket for 175 soles each and the one ticket that was 130 soles on it's own was great as it included visits to ten different areas, but we would never have had the chance to see all of the things included and only two things that were on the ticket were included in this half-day tour. With Viator I'd always check exactly what they are offering and make sure you get emails from the actual contracted tour provider, as this isn't Viator and often you don't receive any emails at all. So overall a good guide, but a lot of crucial information was missing and for this reason I wouldn't recommend this tour,

It's a good tour, to know the city, but very superficially. To many people, for only one guide.
