What You Can Expect

Archeological Park of Sacsayhuaman Half-Day Tour

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.

Our time with Yuber and driver Jimmy was incredible. The entire process was professional and courteous. Yuber is brilliant - his knowledge of Cusco, the Quechua people and Incan history was endless. This was just the tour we desired in order to learn more about the Inca Ruins around the city of Cusco. If you love history, archaeology and architecture this tour is for you!! A great supplement to our time at Machu Picchu.

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.
