Become a pisco pro on this Cusco tour that will sharpen up your cocktail mixing skills, and help you to get to know local Peru culture at the same time. Because let’s face it, there are few better ways to get to know a nation’s culture than through its boozy creations! Meet your friendly local guide at Plaza San Blas, the bohemian area of Cusco and a place that has been the heart of the “fiesta” in Cusco since a long time ago! You’ll get to explore the square a bit as well as all the outstanding buildings that make this plaza one of the most beautiful ones in the city before officially beginning your Cusco tour. From there, you’ll wander along ancient streets to admire the dramatic Inca Walls, constructed of mammoth granite blocks, side-by-side with colonial buildings. It’s here that you’ll also get to see a famed Inca masterpiece, the 12-angle stone. Then it’s back to the order of the day: Pisco! As you wander through the city, your local guide will tell you all about traditional Pisco as well as fill you in on the distillation process, how this sour drink is made, and its place in Peruvian history. The first stop will be at a local bar where you can taste a few different flavors of Pisco, and learn how to prepare the Chilcano, a cocktail made with Pisco, which is a very famous drink among the locals. Finally, it’s your time to shine! Get your mixologist hat on and try your hand at making your very own pisco sour, using all the knowledge that you’ve picked up along the way on this Cusco city tour. And the best part? You get to drink it afterward — Salud!

What people are saying about Andes Mountains, Peru

This was one of the best tours I have ever been on. Paula was amazing- knowledgeable, funny and extremely helpful. The tour was interesting and very well planned. There were so many fascinating sights and stories - time was flying. Ending the tour with a Pisco Sour was a really fun idea, too. Thank you, Paula, I had a great day, you are the best. I highly recommend this tour. Have fun!

Price-performance perfect!

Our tour guide was really good. She knew a lot and took the time to answer questions. We only had a very small group of 3 people which made the tour very enjoyable. She also spoke good English and it was just fun to get to know the city center of Lima. I can only recommend it.

Drinks tour in Cusco Peru

Joined me for this trip to learn how to make drinks and to meet other tourists in Cusco. Unfortunately it was only me who was on the trip, funny when I saw the leather text nasse about making drinks but a bit boring that there were no others

Our guide, Paula, was professional, personable, prompt, perfectly knowledgeable, protective of our safety and comfort, and particularly focused on individualizing our experience. Our tour was everything we expected and more!

Our guide was awesome! Very knowledgeable and laid back. This was a great way to see the highlights of Lima in one afternoon!
