Cusco, Cuzco or Qosqo in quechua, means “Navel”, a city founded by the Incas. It was their capital and also the geographical, political, strategical and military center of the Inca Empire.
Cusco’s stunning landscape is characterized by a blue sky with withe clouds, accompanied by majestic mountains. Due to the Incas and the colonial architectural heritage, this place is definitely unique in the world.
The first day of this tour, we will have a closer look between the cobble stones of the city, like in Koricancha and the Inca Palace Roca or in the colonial buildings as in the barroque-styled cathedral and the Jesuit Church (Iglesia de la Compañia). Just ten minutes from the city there raise the massive walls of the fortress of Sacsayhuamán, and a few kilometres more there are the archaeological sites of Qenko, Pukapukara and Tambomachay, all of them built entirely of stone.
On the second day we will have the opportunity to visit the Sacred Valley of the Incas in the Peruvian Andes. This region is famous for the many rivers which descend through canyons and valleys, several archaeological sites and the indigenous people themselves with their typical markets like in Pisaq, Ollantaytambo and finally in the village of Chinchero. This valley was very appreciated by the Incas because of its special geographical and climatic qualities. Thanks to the richness of the land, it was one of the significant places for the production of the best grain corn in Peru.
The third day, the most important of all, we will get to know the majestic Machu Picchu. The fourth day, end our tours, we will be guided to the tourist sites of Maras and Moray. The fifth day transfer from your hotel to the airport, ending our services.
