Full description
Immerse yourself in ancient Inca culture on this guided tour of Cusco and its surrounding archeological sites. Starting at the impressive Colonial Cathedral, admire over 400 paintings from the Cusqueña old School. Next, head to Qoricancha, the main temple of the Incas, where you can gain an understanding of Inca culture and see how it has fused with Christian culture in Peru.

After your tour of the city, head to the Sacsayhuaman archaeological site where you will be amazed by the rocks used for construction, some of which weigh more than 30 tons.

Continue your tour with a visit to the underground temple of Qenqo, where you can stroll through a labyrinth of impressive rock carvings and tunnels carved into solid rock. Finally, head to the Tambomachay water temple. Here, admire the architecture of this divine temple dedicated to water, fertility and eternal youth before beginning the journey back to Cusco.
