What You Can Expect

Cusco City Sightseeing Tour

Cusco City Sightseeing Tour

Depart from your Cusco hotel and begin your tour at the ambient San Cristobal main square; absorb panoramic views of the architecturally rich city before visiting the vibrant San Pedro Market. Browse artisan treasures and vibrant stalls, perhaps purchasing a special souvenir to take home.
Next, venture to the sacred Temple of the Sun (El Korikancha); it is reputed that when conquerors arrived in Cusco, the temple was covered in solid gold. Admire the architectural precision of the interior before touring the consecrated confines of the Convent of San Domingo while listening to captivating commentary from your guide.
See, too, the Artisan’s Quarters of San Blas, a picturesque area over which an impressive church reigns supreme. Admire the intricate woodwork within before marveling at the renowned angular stones of Hatun Rumiyoc as you follow your guide to one of the city’s most impressive monuments, its Cathedral. Gaze up at the filigreed ceiling and admire the impressive altarpiece, perusing the classic colonial paintings that adorn the Cathedral’s walls. When your tour concludes, return to your Cusco hotel with newfound cultural knowledge.

The overall tour was very good, the Cathedral was incredible, never seen anything like this one. Only thing it was hard to fully understand the guides English unless you were up close all the time.

This was a good, quick primer for our first day in Cusco. We pretty much covered most of the highlights of the city that one could expect to in a half-day which is great because you don't want to take on too much without first getting acclimated to the altitude!. The price is reasonable, so I'd highly recommend doing this tour!
