Wander winding Incan streets to discover the ancient Temple of the Sun, the sacred Convent of Santa Domingo and the colossal Cusco Cathedral. Gain insight into the fascinating history of the city with an interesting and informative guide as you explore one of Peru’s most treasured places on foot.
  • Guided sightseeing tour of Cusco
  • Visit the San Pedro market, Temple of the Sun and Convent of Santo Domingo

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.

When your tour concludes, return to your Cusco hotel with newfound cultural knowledge.

Nice tour, however our guide was not particularly in a good shape that day. But very eloquent and instructed. We had the impression that he expedite the end of the tour.

I had just landed and was on my own and this Cusco tour with Viajes Pacifico was a perfect way to start out my trip and get the lay of the land. The guides explanation of Cusco's history was wonderful and the sites even more so! Beautiful place and fabulous tour guide!!!!!

Most of this tour was spent bumping around in Cusco traffic. We went to another hotel on the other side of town presumably to pick up other passengers - they were presumably no shows but there was no explanation. After a brief tour of the markets we navigated back to the same hotel to pick up a couple who by now were presumably an hour late in a 3 hour tour - again no explanations or apologies or introductions. More traffic - a few stops and ended up back within 50 meters of our hotel to start the walking component. At no stage did the guide outline the itinerary or explain what was going on. While he gave quite interesting commentary when we did stop at various sights it was as if he was reciting by rote and at speed presumably to make up for lost time -he gave the impression he was clearly bored. Some of the views expressed on the inter-mixture of Catholicism and local beliefs were very interesting but somewhat dogmatic. Overall one of the worst of many city tours we have done world wide. Avoid.

Incredible tour. it was the the perfect tour after arriving two hours prior to the tour. The sites we visited were well chosen to give a great view and cultural knowledge of Cusco. Our guide had a tremendous amount of knowledge and provided insightful cultural and historical context at all the sites we visited. A must tour to select for your first day.

Very good tour! Kind of short, was probably expecting a little more churches, monasteries etc.. but the guide was very knowledgable.

The tour was scheduled to go 4 hours but we were done after 2.5 hours. The guide seemed rushed to get it over with. But great stops that focused on the must sees of Cusco.
