Cusco City Tour - Karikuy Tours
The Cusco City Tour visits the most important sites in and around Cusco. The Tour Begins at 1:45pm with it's first stop being the Cusco Cathedral. In the Cathedral you will find hundreds of unique paintings dating back hundreds of years, some framed and painted in exquisite gold leaf patterns.
From the Cathedral you are then guided to Koricancha, the temple of the Sun, the most important building in Cusco during Incan rule. You then head outside Cusco to the fortress of Sacsayhuaman overlooking the city. Here you have the opportunity to take some great pictures of the city and and valley below. The stones that make up the Sacsayhuaman complex are huge in scale and very impressive. From here you go on to visit the smaller sites of Tambomachay, Qenq'o and Puka Pukara.
