Plaza de Armas
Become a Pisco pro on this Cusco tour that will sharpen up your cocktail mixing skills, and help you to get to know local Peru culture at the same time.

San Blas
Your Cusco tour will then lead you on a stroll through a beautiful small plaza, San Blas, located in Cusco’s bohemian, artistic neighbourhood. It’s here where you can find several artisanal shops, a handicrafts market, and the best views of the city as night falls. Then it’s back to the order of the day: Pisco! As you wander through the city, your local guide will tell you all about traditional Pisco as well as fill you in on the distillation process, how this sour drink is made, and its place in Peruvian history. Our first stop will be at a local bar where you can taste a few different flavours of Pisco, and learn how to prepare the Chilcano, a cocktail made with Pisco, which is a very famous drink among locals. Then we will continue to a bar with the best Pisco Sour in town and it’s your time to shine! Get your mixologist hat on and try your hand at making your very own Pisco Sour, using all the knowledge that you’ve picked up along the way on this Cusco city tour. And the best part?

Awesome Experience!

What a great tour! Tasty and educational - we learned a ton about the history of pisco, and (amazing) guide seamlessly put in the context of the greater history of Peru... all while walking around the Plaza de Armas and San Blas neighborhood.

Enjoyable and Fun!

Took this tour the night I arrived. It was a good overall tour of the main areas of Cusco and an opportunity to talk to a local resident about where to eat and go while in Cusco. Also learned about some unique cultural art specific to Cusco. Going to the Pisco Museum and learning to make a Pisco Sour was fun. It was also an opportunity to learn about the different types of Pisco and how they are made.

Cusco Night Walking Tour Review

My boyfriend and I loved this tour! Lilyana was our tour guide and it ended up being just us until the very end when the other three people showed up at our last stop. I highly recommend this tour because Cusco can seem a bit dodgy and with a local it made me feel very at ease. Lilyana was super sweet and offered me a poncho when it stared raining. She also recommended a restaurant to eat at the next night which we went to and it was delicious. My favorite part of the tour was the last stop at the pisco making bar where we got to get behind the bar and make our drinks. We even stayed for the band that was setting up. 5 stars!

This was the first activity I did when I landed in Cusco and I'm so glad I did. Our guide was very knowledgeable, telling us about the history of the town, its architecture, the ancient people and the now locals. Oh, and making the Pisco was so much fun. The bartenders were very friendly. Quality ingredients and liquor. I highly recommend this tour, especially on your first couple nights. It's a great way to get to know the city. I really wish I could remember my guides' name, Lilliana maybe.

Really good tour. The only time wasted was to find other tour members in the huge Cusco square with a signboard. Wasn't ideal but well the tour overall was impressive! Highly recommend it if you're into Pisco - who isn't?! :-

We walked from the Cathedral area up towards San Blas and explored the neighborhood shops and bars and ended with the pisco sour lesson in a private room at Museo del Pisco. Definitely fun for either a group or solo travel and you get to make your own pisco sour.

I enjoyed the tour but found the instructions for meeting the guide ambiguous and when the guide was late, I was uncertain whether I was waiting in the correct location. The information on the tour was very interesting and the Pisco Sour lesson was fun. I would definitely recommend.
