Full description
Explore some of the most iconic places in Cusco. Also known as the Imperial City and declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, this city is a living example of the mixture between Andean and Spanish cultures. This private tour starts in the picturesque San Pedro market, a local market where you can explore the colors, flavors, and traditions of modern Cusco, surrounded with unique products from the area including many varieties of potatoes, chillies, fruit, and spices. Continue to the Koricancha Temple, an ancient Inca palace and the center of the cult of the Sun God. Above this, the order of the Dominicans built a church, which remains standing to this day. The ascent continues until you reach the Fortress of Sacsayhuaman, an impressive example of Inca military architecture. Afterwards, you will get to the Q'enqo archaeological site, an Inca ceremonial site where many important rituals took place. Finally, you will arrive at the Plaza de Armas (main square), where you will visit the impressive cathedral.
