Full description
Discover the main sights and learn about the history of the city of Cusco. First, stop at the San Cristobal Temple, which is a small church built on a hill overlooking the main square. Inside the church, see various paintings of European origin, as well as the intricately carved marble altar. Next, make your way to Colcampata, which is located beside the temple. Learn about this sacred site which was built by Incan leader Pachacutec.

Travel outside the city to drive by the sites of Sacsayhuaman, Q’enqo and Puca Pucara. Get a panoramic view from the upper deck of the bus. On the way back to Cusco, stop at a shamanic center. Witness a traditional Incan ceremony which pays tribute to Pachamama, (Incan mother earth), the mountains, and the natural world. Stop at an Alpaca wool weaving center where one of the workers will explain the differences between various types of wools. Learn how to recognise authentic alpaca wool when shopping for gifts.

Before winding up the tour, visit the large white statue of Christ that is perched up the hill overlooking the city of Cusco. From here, enjoy fantastic views of the entire city. Then proceed back to the bus station in Cusco.
