Day 1: City tour of Cusco
We will begin this city tour of Cusco by picking you up from your hotel. The first place we visit will be Cusco’s cathedral (entrance fee not included). Our guide will relate the history of the cathedral, its paintings and the magnificent gold and silver altars. Then, we will walk to Qoricancha, also known as the Temple of the Sun (entrance fee not included). Here, the guide will offer information about the construction of the temple, and you’ll have free time to explore and take photographs. We will then visit the archaeological sites of Tambomachay, Puka Pukara and Sacsayhuaman. At this last attraction, we will spend 30 minutes, as the guide talks about how it was built and you pause to take photographs of the ruins in the late afternoon light.
