Cusco the ancient capital of Incan empire serves as the gateway to Machu Picchu. Nestled at 3,399 metres above the sea level, the city houses many Incan Ruins. Most travellers end up spending more days in Cusco than planned. This mystical city has many things to offer to its visitors. On this half day Cusco City Tour with our local guide, you will discover things that only locals know about.
The city saw a rapid development under the leadership of the renowned Incan ruler, Pachacutec . the ninth Sapa of Inca Empire. Almost all Inca Sites in and around the city of Cusco were built during his reign including Machu Picchu and Choquequirao. You will see his statue in the main square, Plaza De Armas, pointing towards Sacsayhuaman.
The tour will give you a complete overview of the history and inca culture. You will also see a perfect blend of two architectures (Inca and Spanish). This makes Cusco completely different from the rest in Peru. Qorikancha (Temple of the Sun), is a perfect example of this. The Spanish conquistadors demolished this ancient Inca temple and built Santo Domingo Church on its remains.
Cusco half day tour, will also take you to the four renowned Inca ruins on the outskirt of the city. These are Sacsayhuaman Qenqo, Tambomachay and Puka Pukara.
