See so much more than in a bus
Situated just fifteen minutes above the town of Cusco, is a series of ruins which many visitors miss altogether. By hiking between them, you can see first hand, how their buildings were integrated into the landscape.
From the impressive fortress of Sacsayhuaman to much smaller and lesser known sites, this tour will show you so much more than most, and is a wonderful way to escape the crowds and enjoy a beautiful area of countryside. Your full day tour also includes a delicious picnic lunch.
This lovely walking (or vehicle) tour is a superb introduction into the Inca heritage of Peru. First you visit the impressive site of Sacsayhuaman. Huge stone ramparts surround a beautiful grass amphitheatre. Once the scene of fierce battles it now hosts the recreation of traditional Inca ceremonies such as Inti Raymi and Warachikuy.
Next is the Inca water temple of Tambo Machay lying at 3700m (12,000 feet) followed by a special picnic lunch. From here it is all downhill to Cusco, stopping at the Temple of the Moon and other historical sites along the way.
