Itinerary

Day 1: Welcome to Cusco & City Tour

Our staff will meet you at the airport of Cusco to welcome and escort you to your hotel previously selected by you.

Once installed in the hotel, you will have the rest of time until noon at leisure to relax and explore the city on your own.

The same day in the afternoon, you will have the opportunity to visit and enjoy six important and beautiful historic places. Our city tour starts a few minutes before 2:00PM and the first place we will visit is the great Cathedral of Cusco, the main temple of Cusco, built between 1560 and 1664; the cathedral boasts in its interior numerous chapels which are richly embellished with baroque motifs. In addition, there are numerous valuable sculptures and paintings belonging to the “Escuela Cuzquena” – (the Cusco colonial painting style).

Our second spot to visit is the "Koricancha" (Temple of Sun); a majestic place that, in Incan times, was devoted to the Sun worship and currently is the Santo Domingo convent, founded in 1534 as the first Dominican convent in Peru. This building, a truly masterpiece of architecture, combines wonderfully both the Incan and the colonial heritage. This tour will make you explore the secrets of one of the most important Incan temples.

Then you will visit the surrounding areas of Cusco, this tour includes the visit of four archaeological remains that are very well preserved over the years and were used by the Incas for different purposes.  The first archaeological complex that we will visit is Sacsayhuaman (puma’s head), an imposing fortress that has been worked in blocks of stone that in some cases weigh even over 120 tons. In this archaeological complex takes place the very famous Inti Raymi or Festival of the Sun, celebrated every year in June. Our second visit is Qenqo (labyrinth), an important archaeological center used like sanctuary in the Incan times. Our third destination is Pucapucara, a military construction composed of large walls, terraces and staircases, part of Cusco´s last defense line. And finally we will visit Tambomachay (resting place), an archaeological place that was dedicated to the Water worship and was a resting place for the Inca’s empire sovereign. At the end of our guided tour, our transport will take you back to your Hotel.

Then, we will visit the archaeological complex of Moray located at 7 kilometers southwest of Maras. This complex counts of enormous terraces that overlap concentrically in a giant pit. Some of studies say that these beautiful terraces have been designed for agriculture experimentation considered as a “Greenhouse Prototype”.

Afterwards, we will visit the Salt flats situated northwest of Maras where we’ll find around 2000 small wells. Nowadays, its local people still use it to provide themselves with salt. Right after, we will start our way back to Cusco; along this part, we will enjoy wonderful views of the nearby Andes Mountains.

I loved this Peru trip. I liked the personal attention, I think others travelers were jealous of the attention I got. I felt safe, and cared for. At first I was worried about payment costs, but I have no regrets. Stress free experience. Sol was great, the guides were patient, the personal car rides were nice. My rooms and restaurants reservations went beyond expectations. Thank you!
