Classic Cusco Itineraries

Cusco is a common stop in Peru, especially for tours to Machu Picchu. Cusco is actually higher above sea level than most destinations in Peru, including the famous lost city, which makes it ideal for adjusting the the higher alititude. 

Most tours typically spend a few days in Cusco for this purpose. The city is also great for diving into the ancient Incan history of Peru, with many museums dedicated to archaeological finds.

As a lone traveller I was worried about travelling South America. I realised from the moment I arrived at SA that I had no need to worry. Someone was there to meet me at the airport and from there in I had i clear instructions on the plan and when and where to meet everyone. Not at any point did I feel worried. I enjoyed every second of my trip. June 2015

Galápagos Central Islands & Inca Discovery

I have enjoyed every second of my trip with G adventures. It is hard to explain to anyone just how great my experience was. I could only recommend that they book the trip and see for themselves. It was the perfect trip. There is no recommendations I could make to improve the trip. Although it was very tiring, I woke up each and every morning excited for the day ahead. Every member of the team I met through Gadventures were friendly and helpful. I'm already seeking a new adventure with them. Read more

Off the Beaten Path Peru Bolivia Tour 12 Day – The Best of Bolivia & Peru

Thank goodness I found this operator. My husband and I wanted a customized tour of Cusco; the Sacred Valley; Machu Picchu; Puno; Lake Titicaca; La Paz, Bolivia; and the Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia. They helped us craft the perfect trip. We travelled last July 2014 for 11 days and what an astounding adventure! I have since recommended them to a friend who thought they were fantastic too! Our guides and drivers were all kind, friendly and knowledgeable. Jesus [the guide] took good care of us in Cusco and the Sacred Valley, and Domingo personally saw us off to the Puno train (one of our favorite experiences). The level of professionalism, reliability and kindness was exceptional.
We wanted a blend of Andean culture and ruins, arts and crafts, and seeing the natural beauty of the region. All of our guides were outstanding, the connections and transfers went off without out a hitch, and the hotels were comfortable. My husband was amazed at how perfectly our trip played out! We loved Cusco, Ollaytzntambo, Moray, Salineras, Chinchero, Machu and Huanya Picchu, the train to Puno, the 2- day tour of Lake Titicaca, and the otherworldly Salar de Uyuni. Wow!
