This tour will begin in the morning where your local Cusco Guide will collect you from the hotel to embark on a magical excursion to some of Cusco’s famed highlights  the tour begins at 08:00am. Set off from the city center by private van towards the Xzone and the magnificent Inca fortress of Sacsayhuaman, which majestically overlooks the city of Cusco.

Sacsayhuaman can be translated as ‘speckled falcon’ or ‘speckled head’. The last interpretation refers to the belief that the city of Cusco was set out in the form of a puma whose head was the hill of Sacsayhuaman. The origins are uncertain but the fortress is generally credited to the period of Inca Pachacutec (1450-1490), the Inca king who essentially founded the Inca Empire.

After Sacsayhuaman, your van will be waiting to continue with visits to Q’enko, Puca Pucara and Tambomachay also located near the X-zone, just outside the city, before returning to Cusco for a stop by the ‘Koricancha’ or Inca Temple of the Sun located beneath the Santo Domingo church and convent.

We’ll round out the excursion with a visit to the local market, where inside the main building you find the food market with fresh fruits and vegetables, meat from rabbit to guinea pig to whole pigs, fish and seafood, groceries of all kinds and little food stands where ‘Mamá or ‘Jefe’ cooks a simple, but fresh and delicious menu for a few Soles.

And finally the cathedral of Cusco a very impressive colonial church build on the 16 hundreds by the Spanish after you will be return to your Hotel.
