Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Your tour starts with hotel pickup in Cusco either in the morning or the afternoon. You will meet your guide who will provide a briefing about the day's activity. Then, you will head to the horseback riding ranch, located in the Villa San Blas neighborhood.

    Once you get to the ranch, you will get your horse and muleteers and see a demonstration on how to use the horse from your guide. You will also receive a safety briefing and put on your equipment including helmets to start the journey. You will ride in the outskirts of the ranch and visit mystical places that will show you some of the history of Peru and Cusco.

    The archaeological sites where you will stop include Chuspiyoc, then you will go to Temple of the Moon and finally visit the X Zone (Lanlacuyoc). You will get snacks along the way including cookies, a chocolate bar and a fruit.

    After a great time discovering another side of Cusco on a horse, you will head back to the ranch and board the vehicle back to your Cusco hotel.
