Cuzco, founded in 1100 A.D., is the oldest continually inhabited city in the Western hemisphere. Built in a mountainous location and considered among the most beautiful on the planet, Cuzco was once the flourishing capital of the Inca Empire. Natives and visitors alike consider it the most impressive of all Peruvian cities. Its history includes a rich mix of both Incan and Spanish influence, which we will show you in detail during this day tour. And, as you’ll quickly see, the locals are warm, friendly, and eager to share their culture with newcomers.
This fabulous Cusco City Tour takes you around all of the most important sites of Cusco, including a visit to the Temple of the Sun (Qoricancha) and the museum inside. We will also visit various Incan sites around Cusco that highlight the incredible architecture in the Incan and Spanish styles.
The heart of Peruvian culture is in Cusco, and the blend of the two cultures (Inca and Spanish) give the city a look and feel that are completely different than the rest of Peru.
