Cusco Free City Tour

The tour meets at 9 am next to the fountain in Plaza Regocijo, by 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 Plaza de San Francisco, where we'll see the garden filled with plants native to the Andes region. And then it's on to the Santa Clara Arch, representative of the city's colonial style

The next stop is the San Pedro Market, the perfect place for an initiation into local cuisine! Then the free tour contnues around one of the most important squares in the city: Plaza de Armas. It's here that you can find the Compañía de Jesús Cathedral - built on the site of ancient Inca ruins.

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.

Of course, we'll also head inside one of the many restaurants in this area to try some Pisco Sour. Last of all, we'll visit the famous 12 angled stone.

Our free tour will finish in the Plaza de Armas at 12 noon.

Groups

On our free tour, we're unable to accept bookings for more than 6 people. If you're in a larger group, we recommend booking our private tour of Cusco.
