Optional guided tour of archeological sites and ruins near Cusco

This afternoon excursion is an incredible trip into the past. We start at Sacsayhuaman Fortress, built with giant stone blocks and expertly shaped by the Incas. It is strategically located on top of a hill overlooking the city of Cusco. We continue to Qenko (labyrinth) where the Incas worshipped sun, the moon and the stars and Puca Pucara which might have served as an inn for the Incan emporer and his entourage. Our last stop is to explore the ruins at Tambomachay, which consists of a series of aqueducts, canals and waterfalls that run through the terraced rocks.

  • This tour starts at the hotel: 2 PM
  • Return time: 6 PM

Included is the transfer by motor coach and the services of a local expert.
A minimum of 15 paying participants is required to operate this optional activity.
