You will be met at Cusco airport by our representative who will take you to Hotel Costa del Sol Picoaga (First Class), where you will be staying for 6 nights. On arrival you will have an introduction to the local area which is an opportunity for our guide to provide advice, explain your programme, answer any questions you may have.

 

Day 3 - Cusco City Tour & Nearby Ruins

Departure from your hotel for a visit to the Cathedral in the main square of Cusco and the Quoricancha, the Spanish church built on Inca stone foundations. The Cathedral, believed to be built on the foundations of the Palace of Viracocha, stands proudly in the main square and houses an interesting picture of the last supper where Jesus and his disciples are about to tuck into guinea pig, a Peruvian delicacy.

Then we drive to the mountains above Cusco to visit the archaeological sites of Sacsayhuaman and Kenko. The largest complex and most famous of the ruins surrounding Cusco is Sacsayhuaman, a mighty fortress, built using massive stones some of which weigh over 100 tons, and somehow fitted together so neatly that even now, after so many years and earthquakes, one can still not slip a knife blade between the pieces of this huge jigsaw puzzle.                          

On the return we stop at a vantage point above Cusco for a superb view of the city and the surrounding mountains, before returning to your hotel. This tour is an excellent introduction to the main highlights of Cusco.

 

Days 4-7 - At Leisure in Cusco

Four days at leisure in Cusco to explore the city, relax, to take an optional extra excursion, or simply to enjoy the surroundings and atmosphere of this magnificent city. We highly recommend a tour to the Machu Picchu and the Sacred Vally of the Incas. See below for a full list of possible excursions.
