You will be picked up by your guide at your hotel and set off on a half day tour of Cusco and the nearby Inca ruins. Cusco, the oldest continuously inhabited city on the continent, was the capital of the Inca Empire and is considered by many Quechua peoples to be the spiritual center of the world.
Much of colonial Cusco was built on Inca foundations, and your guide will point out Inca stonework along the many streets.

The four of us have some great memories that will last us a lifetime. A special thanks to our tour guide, Fidel. His thorough knowledge, infectious spirit and genuine enthusiasm for this unique part of the World really made the trip very special.
