Upon your arrival in the City of Cusco, the local partners staff will wait for you at the airport, ready to transfer you to your hotel accommodation for the remainder of the tour. After settling in, your guide will take you on a visit to the beautiful temple of Qoricancha (Temple of the Sun), one of the most important temples in the ancient city of Cusco. Following Qoricancha you will visit the Inca Museum and learn more about the ancient cultures of Peru, seeing first-hand the archaeological collection of Andean art whilst introducing yourself to the Inca civilization and their cosmo-vision.
