Stop At: Plaza de Armas del Cusco, Cusco 08002 Peru

Your half-day tour starts with the pickup from your hotel lobby in Cusco, then head to your first stop, Plaza de Armas, home to the beautiful Cathedral of Cusco


Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Qorikancha, Santo Domingo s/n, Cusco 08000, Peru

Take a tour of this World Heritage–listed church, and then continue on foot with your guide along an ancient Inca-built street from Plaza de Armas to the Q’oricancha, the Temple of the Sun. Here you'll see the clash between Inca culture and Catholicism as you take note of the difference in building methods. The Inca architecture here is quite amazing, particularly a high altar made of bronze, as this was the key spiritual center of the Incas, to where all roads led from all of the four quarters of the Inca Empire.

Stop At: Sacsayhuaman, Cusco 08000 Peru

From Q’oricancha, walk down to Avenida El Sol, and board your bus for the drive up and just outside of the city. The 20-minute ride takes you to the majestic Inca site Sacsayhuaman, with its enigmatic monoliths weighing as much as 200 tons. After Sacsayhuaman, continue to Q’enqo, home to fascinating Inca altars, and then take a 5-minute drive to Puca Pucara, a small, circular Inca site.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Tambomachay, Cusco Peru

Your final stop is Tambomachay, a water temple with fountains thought to be used by the Inca for bathing. Return to the city in the early evening to end your tour.

Duration: 30 minutes

The tour guide picked us up promptly at our hotel, the tour guide, Roger was great and very friendly. The only issue with this tour is that it does not mention in the original booking on the Viator website that in addition to the price shown you will need to pay for all of the excursion fees. What would be helpful would be to include all of the excursion fees as a guideline so that you know what to expect as a whole, otherwise it is misleading advertising. We ended up having to buy a ticket for 175 soles each and the one ticket that was 130 soles on it's own was great as it included visits to ten different areas, but we would never have had the chance to see all of the things included and only two things that were on the ticket were included in this half-day tour. With Viator I'd always check exactly what they are offering and make sure you get emails from the actual contracted tour provider, as this isn't Viator and often you don't receive any emails at all. So overall a good guide, but a lot of crucial information was missing and for this reason I wouldn't recommend this tour,

It's a good tour, to know the city, but very superficially. To many people, for only one guide.
