Don't miss our fantastic guided tour of the ancient capital of the Inca Empire, Cusco. You will discover the beautiful Plaza de Armas square, the San Blas neighbourhood, and so much more. Best of all, it's free!

Cusco Free City Tour

The tour meets at 10 am at Plaza de Armas, the most important in Cusco. From here we begin our free tour, heading back to the origins of the city, when it was founded by the indigenous Inca civilization. First thing we'll make our way to the Pachacutec monument, dedicated to the ninth emperor of the Incas -  for whom archaeologists believe the Machu Picchu estate was built.

We'll admire the square, and learn about its colonial architectural style. Then we'll head to the Compañía de Jesús Cathedral and Church - constructed above Inca remains. Then we'll continue the route, taking in the Santa Catalina convent, formerly known as the Aqllawasi temple.

Another of the important spots is the San Blas neighbourhood, a colonial Inca neighbourhood which today is home to Cusco's artistic community, who give the city its bohemian flavour. And we'll make our way to one of Cusco's best viewpoints, offering you an unforgettable panorama of the city.

And of course, we'll try one of the many restaurants in San Blas, to learn how to make Peru's national dish: ceviche. Then we'll put an end to the free tour with a delicious taste in your mouth!

The tour finishes in the Limbus restaurant at 12:30 pm.
