Description

Benefit from pick-up at your hotel in Cusco, and then head to the beautiful Valle Sur with an English-speaking guide. Arrive at the archaeological site of Tipón, thought to have been a royal garden commissioned by the Inca god Viracocha. Learn more about the agricultural terraces created by the Incas and irrigated by an aqueduct on the sacred Pachatusan mountain. Take a closer look at other structures, such as the baths and temple complex to build a better understanding of the Inca civilization. Continue to the pre-Inca site of Pikillacta to explore the adobe complex built by the indigenous Huari people in around 700 to 900 AD. Marvel at the elaborate art of the Sistine Chapel of Peru in Andahuaylillas, including paintings from Escuela Cuzqueña. Return to Cusco via Saylla, where you can enjoy some delicious pork chicharrones or roasted guinea pig.
