2018 Sacred Valley Peru Trek Tours Cusco

Hi Friends,

This morning we awoke to a deluge of rain and decided to postpone our tour of Cusco in hopes of sunnier skis. Fortunately the afternoon provided us with clearer skies, and we had a great tour of some archeological ruins just above Cusco. Our local guide Silver provided great detail on the development of Cusco, which was the epicenter of the Incan culture. We toured the famous ruins, “Saqsaywaman” which along with Cusco is a UNESCO world heritage site. We then descended into Cusco proper and visited the most prominent Cathedral constructed by the Spanish. Tomorrow we will leave Cusco and head to Lamay and continue on our adventures.
