The Cusco City Tour is one of the Traditional trips taken by many of our visitors, giving us a look around the main attractions both within and outside the city (Cusco Traditional City Tour).
In this tour we’ll be able to visit beautiful churches which house beautiful works of art created during colonial times, including those by well-known artists from Cusco such as Diego Quispe Tito and Marco Zapata, among others.
Cusco was also the cultural capital of the Inca Empire, so we will spend time taking a look at some of the most important Inca ruins, still worthy of a culture that at one time covered a large part of South America.
