Day 1: Arrival in Cusco     

Upon arrival at the Cusco airport, a representative of Machu Picchu Explorer will meet you to take you to the hotel and we’ll help you to make the check-in process. You’ll have the chance to delight you with the famous Coca tea, a hot beverage which allows you to acclimatize to the altitude. We’ll explain you all about the city; restaurants, museums, touristic spots, safety tips, etc. We highly recommend you to rest for a few hours before exploring the city. By the evening you’ll be able to see a show of typical dance at the Centro Qosqo de arte Nativo, this information will also be given by our team.

Day 2: Cusco city Tour

A very quiet morning begins today. You’ll have the chance to explore the city and its attractions. Cusco is also known as «the navel of the world» because of its importance as the capital of the Inca empire.  Temples, stone streets, colonial houses, colorful outfits, art galleries, museums and nice people will certainly delight you. During the morning we recommend you visit the San Blas District and be impressed by the cusquenian artisans.

In the afternoon, our tour begins by visiting the faboulous  Cathedral of Cusco where you’ll find a great painting collection of the «cusquenian school», then we’ll visit the temple of Qoricancha (temple of the sun), the most important in the city. Finally, we’ll visit the spectacular ruins of the Sacsayhuaman fortress/temple overlooking the city, as well as the ruins of Q'enko, Puka Pukara, and Tambomachay nearby.

Next we will discover a typical day work in the community. We will learn about their weaving techniques, their work on the lands, etc. Then we’ll enjoy a delicious menu based on organic products.
