Embark on a guided tour of Cusco, the most important city in the Inca Empire and the gateway to Machu Picchu. Begin with an informative walk along its cobbled streets, viewing such landmarks as Coricancha—a revered temple with walls once covered in sheets of gold. Peruse colonial artworks and wander the Plaza del Armas, which remains the heart of the city, before enjoying some free time for lunch. Afterward, set out by private vehicle to visit a few of the area's main archaeological sites, including Sacsayhuaman—a citadel built of massive stones.
Our guide, Danny, was the best ever. He told the history with the most engaging stories in perfect English.
Our tour was great! Varnia (? Sorry not sure how to spell her name) was well informed, willing to share her amazing culture and insights. She has a great sense of humour- the tour was fun!
This walking tour is an excellent value with diverse offerings, from the ancient Sacsayhuaman site to the Spanish influences on Cusco's churches and people.We saw and learned about much more than we could have every done on our own. As first-time visitors, the tour gave us a comprehensive snapshot of Cusco and the areas we could visit later on our own. Our tour guide Danny was fantastic! He shared his vast knowledge of the past and evolving cultures of the Cusco with passion and enthusiasm that was contagious! Highly recommend this tour!
We booked this tour to see the ruins around Cusco. We wanted to have a guide that understood the history, and would give us a personalized experience. Our guide did just that. He took us around in an order that seemed to avoid the hoards of tourists. He was very attentive and knowledgeable. We could have spent a little less time in the churches in Cusco, but i'm sire that is personal preference. We had been to the market the day before so we talked him into taking us to the best Peruvian doughnut shop in Cusco. I wish I could remember our guides name because he was fantastic.
Knowledgeable, friendly guide. Learned very much about the Incan empire and Spanish conquest. Heavy downpour of rain cut the tour a little short.
