Half Day City Tour in Cusco

Cusco, the former capital of the Inca Empire, is one of the fascinating cities in South America. Just walking through the city center, you can see the incredible mix of Inca and colonial architecture, watch the merging of indigenous and Spanish influences, and feel the history that flows through every cobblestone street.

But it’s also easy to miss many of the most critical aspects of the city. So come with us on our fun and informative Cusco half-day tour and let one of our highly knowledgeable and experienced local guides show you this fantastic city. We’ll visit Cusco Cathedral, the Koricancha (Qorikancha), Sacsayhuaman, and Tambomachay, giving you a deep insight into the city and its history.

Departure & Return Location:

Hotel Cusco.

Departure Time:

First Group : Pick up from your hotel (8:00am – 8:30am).
Second Group : Pick up from your hotel (1:00pm – 1:30pm).

Itinerary

Cusco - Qoricancha - Sacsayhuaman - Pucapucara - Tambomachay - Cusco.

Our Cusco day trip begins in the morning when we’ll first head to the wonderful Koricancha, next door to Santo Domingo Church. According to the chroniclers who wrote directly after the Spanish Conquest, the Koricancha was the most sacred and most important temple in the Inca Empire. Its walls were covered with gold, and life-size statues of plants and animals – all made of pure gold and silver – decorated its rooms and hallways. Sadly, this wealth was stripped out by the Spanish conquistadors. However, it remains a magnificent temple, and your guide will take you around the Koricancha, showing you details that you almost certainly miss if you visited without a guide.

After visiting the Koricancha, we’ll head to Cusco Cathedral, located on the Plaza de Armas. Built between 1560 and 1654 on top of the foundations of an existing Inca temple, this spectacular cathedral houses many works of art by the Cusco School of painters, and its main altar and pulpit are covered in gold and silver relief work. Look carefully, and you’ll also see elements of indigenous religious symbolism incorporated into the church by the native people who worked on its construction, such as the carved head of a jaguar on the doors.

Our next stop is the imposing Inca fortress of Sacsayhuaman, which sits on a hill above Cusco. Here you will see some of the finest examples of Inca stonework and construction, including massive rocks that were carefully cut and perfectly fitted together to form the walls. From here, you’ll also have beautiful panoramic views of Cusco.

After exploring Sacsayhuaman, we’ll head up the hill to the Tambomachay Archeological Complex. The exact purpose of this site is unknown, but it may have functioned, at least in part, like an Inca spa. Inca hydro-engineering is apparent here, with a series of aqueducts, canals, and waterfalls running through the terraced rocks.

Tambomachay is the last attraction on our city tour, after which we’ll head back down into Cusco and drop you off at your hotel. But if you want to explore the city and its culture some more, you can arrange one of our extensions.
