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 did a solo trip to Cusco, and on the first day in the city I knew I wanted to do something that wasn't too exhausting, considering the early morning flight arrival and needing to get acclimated to the altitude. After a failed attempt at the free walking tour during the day, I decided to opt for this. By far a better decision. Spend the day exploring the city and sites on your own. Having a night tour was an excellent way to see a different side of the city with a local.

The other that were supposed to be part of the tour apparently were sick from the altitude bring Diamox, so I benefited from a solo tour with Lily. She was extremely informative and fun to learn from. We we walked around the normal sites, but also explored several of the side streets, just off the main square. Ending at the Museo Del Pisco bar I'm sure they differ was great and convenient as it was across from my hotel. The staff/bartenders were uber friendly and taught how to make just the right Pisco Sour...by far the best experience of the tour.

This is a great tour to do in the evening before dinner, especially if it's your first night in Cusco. Helps to give you a tour of the city while not being difficult.

Had SO MUCH FUN on this tour! Not only was our guide Lily really nice and informative, but she made the tour fun. There were just four of us, which made it even better. The walking tour is great, but let's be honest, the pisco sour lesson was the best part! We LOVED the bar where the lesson was held, and the staff and bartenders were super friendly and fun. They all spoke great English. All four of us were able to fully create our own pisco sours, and then we stayed at the bar listening to music and enjoying more food and beverages. I highly recommend this tour for any night of the week - we had a blast.

I visited Cusco for a trek to Machu Picchu with several family members and friends. The two days before our trek, while we were acclimating, we decided to get a short guided tour of the city. The night walking tour was perfect. Liliana, our guide, was knowledgeable and entertaining! The Pisco Sour lesson was great fun and everyone gets involved! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. It is quick and packed with information and fun!

This night was so fun. The walking tour was full of information that we did not know about Cusco. The tour guide was excellent. When we went to the bar all of the employees behind the bar were so welcoming. Each of us could make a Pisco Sour of our choice mine was chocolate. We had so much fun that we stayed two additional hours and had another drink and appetizers.

this was a great way to do a half day tour to not only see different areas of lima, but also to taste different foods, coffees, and desserts in what national geographic ranked as the 1 foodie destination on the planet for 2016

We met Leleana at the steps of one of the cathedrals in Cusco. The other tour participant was a woman named Samantha. Cusco is a hilly city so this involved a lot of walking up steep streets and many stairs. LeLe showed us how beautiful Cusco is at night and she told us many wonderful stories and historical facts. We ended the night in a bar learning how to make the famous cocktail, PIsco Sour. Each person got to make their own Pisco Sour. It was very fun! Highly recommend!
