Faqs about Cusco Half Day City Tour

The capital  is Cusco.

Cusco is located in the central and southern part of Peru, approximately 1,494 km from Lima.

The altitude is 3,399 meters above sea level.

The climate in Cusco is cold and dry, with an average annual temperature of 11°C. The rainy season is from November to April.

Cusco has an area of 71,892 km2.

Because it was the political and territorial center of the Inca Empire and is believed to be the navel of the world.

Cusco has a legacy from the Inca Empire, known for its impressive engineering feats using stone as the main tool.

Cusco was inhabited by primitive settlers about three thousand years ago. According to legend, Manco Capac and Mama Ocllo emerged from Lake Titicaca in the 12th century to found a new kingdom and improve the conditions of life for the people. They founded the city of Cusco, also called Qosqo or Cuzco, which means “the navel of the world.”

On March 23, 1534, and built a Spanish city on the Inca foundations.

The most important rebellion against Spanish rule in Cusco during the colonial period was led by José Gabriel Condorcanqui (Túpac Amaru II) in 1781. There were also rebellions led by the Angulo brothers and Mateo Pumacahua in 1814.

Cusco became a republic in 1825.

Machu Picchu, was discovered by Hiran Bighman in 1910, is of great significance to Cusco as it is a well-preserved Inca site.

Cusco is known for being an Andean city located in the mountains that provides travelers with access to the majestic Andes, famous Inca archaeological sites, and of course, the famous Machu Picchu archaeological park. It is also the gateway to the Sacred Valley, Inca Trail, and the Manu and Tambopata reserves.

The Plaza de Armas is the main square in Cusco, surrounded by a beautiful cathedral and two churches, the Church of Triumph and the Church of Jesus Maria. It is an excellent starting point for exploring the ancient Inca city.

San Blas is a neighborhood in Cusco located on a small hill just a few minutes from the city center. It is characterized by its narrow cobblestone streets, where you can find shops and cozy restaurants for breakfast, coffee, or traditional pizza cooked in clay ovens.

The Pachacuteq Ovalo viewpoint in Cusco offers spectacular views of the city from the statue of the Inca leader “Pachacuteq,” which stands tall on top of the hill. If climbing the stairs of this viewpoint is not enough for you, take on the challenge of hiking to the giant white Christ statue located on top of the city, which dominates the valley of Cusco.

Qorikancha is an Inca archaeological monument that once functioned as one of the most important Inca temples in Cusco.

Sacsayhuaman is a large Inca walled complex located outside the city of Cusco.

Cusco offers a variety of outdoor activities such as rafting, mountain biking, horseback riding, paragliding, and ziplining. Visitors can also relax in the hot springs of Lares, Santa Teresa, and Aguas Calientes.

The main reason people visit Cusco is to access the famous Machu Picchu archaeological site, which is located nearby.

    Alittle bit of everything We had a last minute change of plans when it came to our tour. We were supposed to visit the rainbow mountain but with the recent protesting we called to see if we could change last minute and they were very accommodating. Odon and Fernando were amazing! They took us to see multiple attractions and made us feel very at home. And kudos to Renee for the amazing driving. I would highly recommend using this company for a tour. We will definitely use them if we ever come back!

    Atv Tour Odin and Fernando were great as well as our driver Rene. Very informative about the city of Cusco. Enjoyed our tour with this company and these individuals who took us around. Great time! Highly recommend!!!
    Family vacation Kondor path tours arranged a couple of private tours on our last vacation in Peru. Our first tour was the Rainbow Mountains and the next day we did the sacred Valley Tour.The administrative services were excellent, we met at our hotel the day before our tours and our head guide, Fredy, explained everything perfectly, including what to wear and bring for each tour. On the tour days, our guides (Fredy and Juan Carlos) and driver (Juan Carlos) were great! very knowledgeable, considerate about our party, always helpful and ready to answer questions and meet the expectations (completely different expectations because we had different ages in our party (from 11 to 69 years)) of each party member.The rainbow mountain is awesome and is is really helpful to go with a guide that knows about the area, but also about hiking!!!
    Excellent guide who stays with you for the entire day The Vinicunca one-day horse tour was fantastic. The friendly and informative Freddy guided us for the entire bus ride and mountain trek. He knew where to stand to get the best photos and made everything fun and accommodating. The horse ride up made it much easier to enjoy the final hike. Lunch was large and tasty. Door to door service.
    Awesome Service and Tours Fernando and Patricia were SUPER responsive - usually responded to emails within 10 minutes!!. The arrangements they made for Cusco, Machu Picchu, Sacred Valley, and surrounding areas were awesome.They were waiting for us at the airport and did everything we asked them. Our guide for the four days was Herberth and driver was Juan Carlos. Both were SUPER SUPER great. Juan Carlos was such an amazingly pleasant driver with cute stories. He also was a very safe driver. Herberth was very knowledgable and helpful. Took us all over the places with details about the history and details. We had friends who were not able to climb much and they accommodated us all.On the day we had planned to do rainbow mountain we did not feel great and emailed Fernando at 5am and he responded within 5 minutes with other options for us to do that day. Overall, if you are going to Peru and want to visit the historic sites, you SHOULD go with these people. They are SUPERB!!
    Great memories for our family We went for a tour to the rainbow mountain, service was excellent and then we decided to go for another tour on the next day to the sacred valley, it was also excellent. Our guide was Fredy and our driver was Juan Carlos, two excellent people, honest and respectful. I recommend them. Gracias por todo, lo pasamos increíble.
    Rainbow Trek and Horseback Riding A group of 7 of us did a One Day Rainbow Trek and Horseback Riding. Freddy was our guide and he was prompt and with us every moment of the journey. They were so accommodating to move the debrief meeting the night before because we had a food tour that evening. Freddy had so much energy, knowledge, and excitement to share with us about his native homeland. In addition, he made sure that we were well taken care of when one of us was actually sick from the altitude. It was such an amazing experience and Freddy made sure we got the best of it. Thank you! Highly recommend Kondor Path Tours.

    MachuPicchu trek We had an amazing experience with the one day trek and the day after visit to the MachuPicchu site with Hober Guia, this guide is very knowledgeable of the history and culture, patient and kind and took care of all of our needs. The tour was arranged perfectly taking care of all small details. Very much recommend!
    Maras Moray hike We recently did this hike with Bonnet. She was a highly experienced guide. V good English. Judged our ability well and made for a great day out.
    MachuPicchu and Rainbow Moutain We worked with Kondor Path for two tours, of Machu Picchu and Rainbow Mountain. Everything they did was well organized, well documented, well communicated. The two guides and the driver were great, very friendly and knowledgeable. All were bilingual (English and Spanish). At Rainbow Mountain we rode horses to the base of the really steep part of the mountain (this saved some 7 km of hiking). But that last part was quite difficult! I'm glad I had prepared and gotten conditioned.
