Cusco City Tour

First you will visit the Basilica Cathedral of Cusco, beautiful colonial architecture, built on top of an ancient Inca temple (Suntur Wasi – the great palace of the Inca Wiracocha). The Cathedral of Cusco is one of the largest architectural representations, with a Baroque-style construction, a temple that was built back in the 1560s, until the 1664s.
You will see inside, the wonderful works of art, Baroque and Plateresque, of the famous Cusqueña school, with original paintings, murals and altarpieces.
You will continue exploring, visiting the Qoricancha (temple of the sun), there is a museum inside which you will know from the inside, you will find enclosures made of extraordinarily carved stone.
You will leave the City of Cusco to continue exploring, where you will visit an extraordinary monument and one of the architecture icons of the Incan Sacsayhuaman, an incredible construction with gigantic stones. Built in the 15th century.
Followed, very close to Sacsayhuaman is the archaeological site, Qenqo a word in Quechua that means (labyrinth), where according to the latest research, they indicate that this was the last dwelling place of the Inca Pachacuteq.
The last two places that you will know, is the Fortress of Puca Pucara, a military construction since one has a privileged view of the entire Cusco Valley, Puca Pucara is a word in Quechua that means (Red Fortress).
And finally you will know Tambomachay a word in Quechua (place of rest), it is a temple of the cult of water, as one of the main natural deities of the Incas.
It has been the last place to visit in this City tour of Cusco, it is time to return to the City of Cusco, where we leave you at your hotel.

The city of Cusco is at 3350 meters above sea level, if you come from a city at sea level, surely you will feel the blow of the height, the lack of oxygen, the agitated breathing, the headache, these will be the symptoms.
But do not worry, having some coca leaf mates (which are given in the hotels), resting the first day of arrival in Cusco, it will be enough for you to feel very well and you can do the City Tour in Cusco.
When you arrive at the Cusco airport (Alejandro Velazco Astete International Airport), from where you take your bags, there are several taxi drivers offering taxi service, I recommend that you ask the taxi drivers: How much is the cost to the address of your hotel? Normally the cost is about S /. 15.00 to S /. 20.00 Soles for the taxi, remember to always pay the price of the service beforehand.
Note: There are some hotels that include the transfer from the airport to the hotel, and they actually wait for you with your name on a sign, and take you to a car (taxi), please ask the person if the taxi is already paid through the hotel and talk to the driver, who will pay for the transfer?
I give you this warning because it happens many times that hotels offer the transfer service and in the end the car driver charges you for the transfer service and it may cause you inconvenience.
