Explore the principal highlights of Cusco, covering both its modern-day and ancient-Inca traditions, during this private walking tour. Visit the one-time location of the Incas' Temple of the Sun (Qorikancha), known today for the Convent of Santo Domingo that occupies the site. Continue with a visit to Cusco’s Inca Museum, to learn about the rise of this amazing civilization, and stop by the city’s San Pedro Market for a glimpse of daily life for city residents.
Our first visit to Cusco and we only had a few hours before going on to Ollantaytambo- taking a private walking tour was a very good choice! Unfortunately our guide did not show at our arranged time - the meeting time had not been communicated to the guide. After making a phone call a very apologetic guide showed up in about 10 minutes. Guide spoke excellent English, was very informative and pleasant. I think we saw as much as was possible in the short time we had. We especially enjoyed our visit to San Pedro Market where we stopped to enjoy a freshly squeezed fruit drink. Inca museum was interesting and well worth a visit. Would like to have had more time at Qorikancha- crowded with many tourists but we were able to move around with ease as it was just the 2 of us with guide.
