Cusco is just one word WONDERFUL! It is a place full of history, flavors, people from all over the world. The colonial architecture, the love Peruvian people show, and share for their traditions is live in every corner. Historic downtown has also great food from...More
The historic center of Cusco, Plaza de Armas, is a beautiful place to visit, a clean place and something I was very impressed to see was the safety: a lot of policemen and you can walk through day and night. Many shops that you could...More
Good place to acclimate before Machu Pichu. Very small town so you can see the town in a day. It’s also a good base to stay while doing excursions like rainbow valley, sacred valley, salt mine. If you want to try guinea pig, try it...More
Main square where all the actions are. Offer many restaurants, shops, churches to shop around. Most places accept Visa, Master, Diner's club, Amex. Also the status of the Inca 9th King is at the center. Police presents whole time, felt safe, many tourist in the...More
When I first arrived in Cusco, I was blown away from the historic part of Cusco. Forget the hawkers selling art, Peruvian trinkets and women offering therapeutic massages. This place is just plain beautiful. I walked through that square dozens of times - and I...More
Do not buy any of the tours, its better when you walk by yourself and discover the sights. Make sure you walk around the Inca center where the old temple used to be. Do spend time at the little parks scattered around the center, they...More

Hi! We landed in Cusco and immediately left to go to the Sacred Valley. This helps to acclimate to the high altitude. We were there for two days and then went to Macchu Picchu for two days. We then returned to Cusco for two more days. We made our arrangements through Avanti Tours in the US which then subcontracted with Condor Tours. They had EXCELLENT guides and services. We loved our hotels--the Casa Andina in the Sacred Valley was very nice and even had a planetarium on the grounds! Then we also enjoyed the Inkaterra Pueblo Hotel in Aguas Caliente--the town at the base of Macchu Picchu. In Cusco we stayed at another nice hotel, the Aranwa Boutique Hotel. Condor arranged for our train to Macchu Picchu, our various tours and guides and travel within Peru. We also got our entrance passes and hiking passes for Huyana Picchu in this same manner. Have a great time! It is a trip of a lifetime!
