Day 1: Welcome to Cusco city + Cusco city tour.

Our dedicated representative will be waiting to welcome you at Cusco Airport upon your arrival. Cusco sits at an elevation of 3,350 meters, and it's common to feel the effects of the altitude upon arrival. To help alleviate any potential discomfort, we recommend enjoying a cup of Coca tea at your hotel. Check-in at most hotels is available starting at 12 pm. If you arrive early, you can conveniently leave your luggage at the hotel, as they offer complimentary storage services.

Once you've settled in, you'll have the opportunity to savor a delicious lunch at one of the numerous restaurants surrounding the main Plaza of Cusco.

At 1 pm, our city tour of Cusco begins. This exploration includes visits to several historical sites within the city and Inca sites located in the upper parts of Cusco. Our journey commences at the Main Plaza of Cusco, a truly magnificent location. From there, we'll proceed to the renowned Qoricancha, a site of profound significance in Inca history and culture. This site marks the very heart of the Inca Empire and is where our civilization began.

Following our exploration of Qoricancha, we'll continue our journey in comfortable transportation to Sacsahuayman, one of the most impressive and colossal Inca sites in the region. Sacsahuayman holds its unique charm and grandeur, even differing from the renowned Machu Picchu. You'll have ample time to immerse yourself in the historical wonders and marvel at the views.
