This half-day guided tour is a great way to orientate yourself in Cusco, ensuring you don’t miss the key attractions of the historic centre as well as showcasing the impressive Inca ruins nestling in the hills to the north of the city. You will begin the tour with a visit to Cusco’s huge Cathedral, constructed in the 17th century on the site of the original Inca Palace of Viracocha and where the highlights include a depiction of the Last Supper with the disciples dining on guinea pig. Continue on to Koricancha where excavation around the colonial Santo Domino church has revealed the remnants of the mighty Inca Temple of the Sun underneath, and you can even see an impressive Inca wall standing proudly outside. You will then depart the city centre to enjoy some impressive views from the surrounding hills, as well as guided tours of the ruins of Sacsayhuaman, Tambomachay, Puca Pucara and Qenqo. Even those with only a passing interest in history will find it difficult not to admire the impressive feats of Inca engineering on show here.
