Top 11 Cusco Tours
Browse our tailor-made Cusco Peru tours, full of history and Inca heritage. Cusco, once the capital of the Inca Empire and gateway to Machu Picchu, is a popular Peru tour destination. Some of the best things to do in Cusco are to explore the city’s lively street markets, historic buildings, and charming restaurants. We recommend staying at least a couple of nights here, in the former capital of the Inca Empire. Seamlessly add a trip to Machu Picchu for the ultimate Peru travel package and be sure not to miss the Sacred Valley along the way.
City of Cusco
Staying happy and healthy on your journey to the Inca capital is essential. While you are at it, make sure to explore how to avoid altitude sickness when visiting Cusco, Peru! We always take care to plan our Peru itineraries to allow our travelers to adjust to change as gently as possible.
If you spend a day or two in Cusco during your vacation to Peru, you should also visit the surrounding ruins near the city: Sacsayhuaman, Tambomachay, and Qenqo to learn more about the past cultures. You can visit these ruins in an afternoon, and enjoy vistas of Cusco from above. If you have a sense of adventure, you could also try a mountain biking tour of the surrounding Cusco area. Or just relax in town, shopping in the many stores selling distinctive Peruvian handmade goods, or enjoying the sidewalk cafes, pubs and rather interesting nightlife. From Cusco take a scenic train ride across the Sacred Valley to Machu Picchu, or hike through the Sacred Valley along the Inca Trail. Travel also to Puno and Lake Titicaca to enjoy the beautiful view of the Andes from the comfort of a scenic train. Learn more about our tours that include Cusco tours in the section below.
