Tour description

Magical Cuzco, capital city of the Inca Empire and main tourist destination of Peru. This city tour and visit of its surrounding, offers to the participants in a unique and spectacular way the discovery of its rich historical and monumental heritage.

This circuit begins with the visit of the cathedral with its impressive architecture and its baroque, colonial religious art. The Cathedral shows as well clear evidence of the religious subjugation of the Inca Empire for the Spanish invaders.

From here, the tour proceeds through the pre-Hispanic streets, which still preserve the famous walls of the ancient Inca buildings. After that the group will reach by foot the spiritual QORICANCHA, the most important temple of the Incas. This was and still is a sacred place of worship and respect towards the cosmic elements.

Then the tour continues in a comfortable tourist bus in order to visit Sacsayhuaman, which in change is a unique megalithic monument, a great expression of art, which clearly shows the advanced Inca technology and architecture.

Close to it we get to Qenqo, considered to Inca times to be a holy place or object “Huaca”. The last visit will be made in Tambomachay, as well the farthest point of the tour, was a temple for worshipping the water as a vital element for human existence.
