Cusco City Tour Ruins Full Day Itinerary
We start at 8:30 AM (or 10 to 20 minutes earlier) we pick you up at your hotel and start our tour by tourist transport with our professional local guide and driver. We recommend that you bring plenty of water, some snacks, and a windbreaker for your Cusco City Tour Ruins Full Day.
Cusco City Tour Ruins Full Day is following a north Cuzco paved road for 8 kilometers, we reach Tambomachay, the Inca fountain dedicated to an Inca princess. During the trip we have scenic views of the Andes valley of Cuzco. After walking 15 minutes from the parking area, we reach the main Inca fountain which is still running fresh spring water. The Inca architecture is unbelievable. The site includes a ritual watchtower, ceremonial Inca windows, and Inca trails. Just one kilometer further from Tambomachay, is Pucapucara (the red Inca fortress). One option is to walk 13 minutes from Tambomachay to Pucapucara and then ride our transport. Pucapucara has two open plazas, one which was a check point and the other a plaza with a 360° view. The Inca walls here are simple but beautiful stonework.
Qenqo (the Inca labyrinth) was an amphitheater and ritual place for ceremonies honoring Pachamama (mother earth), and the Inca mummification system. It also has a monolith, a hidden Inca trail, and burial chamber. All this is located at upper Qenqo (Qenqo Grande). If the clients want, we can go to the lower Qenqo (Qenqo Chico) (another unknown side of the main Qenqo). Another one kilometer from Qenqo we have Sacsaywaman, the major Inca site of the area. Sacsaywaman has giant stones and three terraced walls. The lighting and every stone is unique. We will enjoy exploring all sides of Sacsaywaman.
We will drop you at your selected restaurant or we can recommend one for you. One to one and a half hours of free time is allocated for your lunch, then we carry on by foot or car depending on how energetic you are this afternoon. The tourist car is available to finish the tour as we visit the last places: the Cathedral of Cusco and the Qoricancha (main temple of the Incas).
