Archeological Park of Sacsayhuaman Half-Day Tour

After hotel pickup in Cusco, begin your journey into the heart of the mountains in an air-conditioned minivan. Enjoy a brief stop at Tambomachav, the sacred source of a natural spring formerly worshipped by Incas.  Listen to your guide as enthralling explanations of the pool’s functions are provided. 

Next, venture to the atmospheric ruins of Qengo, a perplexing labyrinth with a sacrificial altar in its center. Marvel at the spiraling staircases and secret channels of a site reputed to have been home to Incan rituals. 

Continue to the world-renowned park of Sacsayhuaman to uncover the archaeological mysteries of the ancient site; appreciate the panoramic vistas of Cusco before you embark upon an enriching exploration. Observe the intricate carvings of colossal stones, searching the solid 9-meter (30-foot) blocks for depictions of pumas, snakes and condors, images that represent the three Incan worlds.  

Conclude your tour at the majestic Tower of Pucca Pucara, a foreboding fortress whose aqueducts, springs and waterways are sure to impress. Relax during the journey back to your Cusco hotel, where the tour concludes.

We had a wonderful experience with out tour guide, Marinés. She was personable, well-informed, interesting and spoke English very well. She arrived on time and took us to the four Inca sights located outside of Cusco. I would definitely recommend her as a guide and recommend Viator.
