1. Cusco: Half-Day City Tour with Inca Site Visits
Following pick-up from your hotel, (for those who chose this option at the moment of booking), head on the bus to Cusco's Plaza de Armas. Here, visit the famous cathedral and observe the locals and busy tourists. Visit the sacred church before continuing by foot through the Inca streets to Qoricancha, which contains the Temple of the Sun. Learn about the clash between Inca culture and Catholicism, and see firsthand the different building methods used by the Incas. After your visit to Qoricancha, walk down the bustling Avenida El Sol, and take a scenic bus ride out of the city to the majestic Inca site of Sacsayhuaman. Here, enjoy a guided tour as well as time to explore the ruins individually. Head on the bus to the Qenqo site. Admire its beautiful altars and the small circular Puka Pukara as well as Tambomachay, the Temple of Water with its exquisite fountains. Finish your day in Cusco's main square. Soak up some sun, sample delicious street food or bargain like a local as you continue on your own in the beautiful city.
