Explore the Imperial City with our Cusco City Tour. Visit the Temple of the Sun, the Fortress of Sacsayhuaman and more!
The Cusco City Tour visits the most important sites in and around Cusco. The Tour Begins at 1:45pm with it’s first stop being Koricancha, the temple of the Sun, the most important building in Cusco during Incan rule. Today a church sits atop the foundations of the magnificent temple, but you can make out the differences in architecture between the two buildings. The massive earthquake resistant rocks built by the Incas make up the temples walls while the Spanish church sits lazily atop the structure, having been rebuilt twice due to powerful earthquakes that brought down the Church.
At the end of the tour it is common for your group to be taken to an artisans shop to explore and perhaps buy a piece of artwork or hand made sweaters, blankets and souvenirs outside of Cusco.
Regardless of train class the route to Machu Picchu is one of the most beautiful in the world. You begin in the Sacred Valley of the Incas and make your way through to the high jungle passes of the Andes, you are surrounded by beautiful flora and incredible scenery.
In the evening you arrive at Aguas Calientes, here you have a free evening to spend exploring the small town. You will also be met by your guides who will give you a short briefing on your next days tour of Machu Picchu.
