Cusco 4-Hour Private Tour Including Sacsayhuaman and Qenqo
  • Cusco 4-Hour Private Tour Including Sacsayhuaman and Qenqo

    Discover the magic of Cusco on a 4-hour private sightseeing tour of the capital of the Inca Empire. Explore the city’s main attractions with your private guide, such as the Convent of Santo Domingo. Then continue to nearby archaeological sites including Sacsayhuaman and others that are the best example of ancient Incan architecture and religion.

    Meet your guide in your hotel lobby at the selected departure time. First visit the center of Cusco. Your guide will take you to the Cathedral in The Plaza De Armas to view ancient artwork and beautiful Spanish architecture. Next, you will continue on foot (approx. 15-20 minutes) to the Qoricancha Museum, where you will be able to view both Incan and Spanish history, art and architecture. A private car will meet you and transfer you to the famous Sacsayhuaman Incan archeological site, situated on a mountain overlooking Cusco. Sacsayhuaman, a walled-complex like many other Inca constructions, is made of large polished stone walls. Each boulder in the wall was carefully cut to fit together without the need for mortar.

    Next head to Qenqo, also known as The Labyrinth. This temple, dedicated to Mother Earth, is a unique center of celebration and astronomical studies. It has numerous ceremonial carvings, holes, and canals cut into the rock. One of its features is a semi-natural underground chamber. Continue your trip with a visit to Pucapucara. This complex contains several rooms, inner plazas, aqueducts, vantage points, and pathways. It may have served as an Incan "tambo" (rest and lodging area).

    Lastly, go to the archeological site of Tambomachay. Tambomachay is believed to have fulfilled an important altar function linked to water and the regeneration of the land, and is closely linked with Pucapucara. The area covers about 2.4 acres (one hectare), and is made out of polygonal-shaped limestone. Your tour ends with a drop off at your hotel approximately four hours after your selected departure.

      We had this on the day we will leave Cusco on the way back to reality and we had a pretty amazing stay in Peru so far thus we expected the least. But our guide showed up prepared and well versed in the Inca empire. Just touring around the temples and the fortresses we were able to pick up from him the richness in architecture of the people of Peru. He showed great love for his roots and this showed in the way he speaks of his ancestors. The last 4 hours came as a breeze. Best city tour we had.

      We like to do historical tours of the places that we visit, and this tour was great! Our guide provided great information and answered all of our questions about the sites and Cusco in general. The itinerary was perfect for what we were interested in too.

      Our guide, Gabriella, was very nice and extremely knowledgeable. We were able to move at our own pace and choose what we wanted to see and hear more about we learned so much and had some laughs along the way. I highly recommend this tour!

      Viator used Rainbow Mountain Tours and my two sons and I were extremely lucky to have gotten Gabrielle sp? as our guide. On a scale of 1-10 she was over- the- top-terrific! She was accommodating altitude sickness delayed departure, very knowledgeable, and obviously excited about what she does. We had a great morning touring Temple of the Sun, the cathedral on Plaza de Armas, and outside town ruins of Sacsayhuaman, Kenko, Puka Puka, Tambochay - all worthwhile .

      Guides are extremely knowledgeable and can answer any aspect of Peruvian life. It has added so much to our trip to have a private guide in Lima and Cusco.
      I recommend everyone should have a personal guide to get the most out of a trip. Peru is an amazing country

      It was nice to get away from our big tour group for a couple of hours. We went to a couple of Incan sites including the cathedral in the town square, snacks were also included in the price. It was not a bad tour but it certainly was not the best either. I felt that the time for the tour was too short (even if we exceeded for about an hour) for the itinerary because it did not give us enough time to take pictures and enjoy the scenery. We felt the experience was somewhat rushed.

        General rating: 6/10
