Itinerary

We will pick you up from your hotel at approximately 12:30 pm. From there, we will head to the Plaza de Armas of Cusco, where we will visit the Cathedral. Then, we will walk from the Plaza de Armas to Qoricancha, which was one of the most important religious centers of the Incas where they worshipped the Sun God. The stone constructions are of better perfection than Machu Picchu and were covered in gold before the Spanish conquest. From Qoricancha, we will head to Avenida Sol and take transportation to the impressive Archaeological Park of Sacsayhuaman. It is a majestic place where you will appreciate rocks up to 9 meters high and weighing over 120 tons. They all fit with incredible precision; the magnificent zigzag walls are a great attraction. Then, we will go to Quenqo, which means labyrinth.

This was an Inca Ceremonial Center whose constructions were dedicated to Mother Earth (Pachamama) and contains the most impressive carved rocks. Next, we will head to Puca Pucara, known as the red fortress.

This place was also used as a military control center and was a resting place during the Inca times. Finally, we will visit Tambomachay, where the constructions were used to worship the God of Water. Some aqueducts, canals, and interesting fountains sculpted in stone are still preserved. Finally, we will return to Cusco.

Excelentes guias e passeios ! Guia Richard super divertido ! E marco super bacana também… A minha única ressalva seria para as refeições, café e almoço , pois a comida é local e poderiam ter opções mais diversificadas ou opções apenas dos passeios sem incluir as refeições

Me contacté con la agencia por recomendación de una amistad y fue Jose Luis quien me atendió. Fue muy paciente y preciso al explicarme sobre el tour que deseaba. Durante mi visita a Machu Picchu tuve como guía a Eduardo quien fue muy paciente al tomarme fotos de diferentes lugares. Así mismo, su explicación sobre la historia del lugar fue muy certera. 100% recomendado.
