Andean Marriage in the Andes of Peru: Celebrate your wedding in the traditional Inca style, revaluing the deep traditions of the Pongobamba community of the Huayna’s de Pumapata Chinchero association, Cusco, Peru, South America. When exploring Peru, we visit Machu Picchu, the Rainbow Mountain, the Inca Trail, or other tourist circuits, and why not give A Surprising Andean Marriage to Your Loved Your Soul Team?

An Inca priest celebrates marriage with the union of mother nature. Today, we marry or remarry symbolically with a welcome to the celebrations of love. Return to your country of origin, married in the lands of the Incas, on your next vacation to Machu Picchu.

The Inca Marriage Ceremony is a fascinating and unique tradition passed down through generations of indigenous people in South America. This ancient ceremony celebrates love and commitment and is significant in the Inca culture.


Andean Cusco Wedding Overview 

Plan your perfect Andean Wedding Ceremony Cusco in Peru! Learn more about the traditional customs and celebrations related to a timeless Andean wedding celebration.

We consecrated your marriage to Mother Earth in a special ceremony conducted by an Andean priest and associates from the Huaynas de Pumapata of Pongobamba Chinchero.

The Andean wedding is a living cultural manifestation of Pongobamba Chinchero. The Cusco Andean wedding begins with a ritual use of incense and flower essences to spiritually cleanse the couple, symbolizing the beginning of a new life.

Then, we begin with the offering to Mother Nature as a sign of gratitude for her daily blessings, including the joy of reuniting the beloved couple.

In the Andean wedding of Pongobamba Chinchero, several elements make up the offering, such as seeds, sweets, flowers, colored wool, and other representative aspects of the Andean world. Also, as offerings, we use the Chicha drink (Chicha is the elaboration and fermentation of corn from the Sacred Valley, the elixir drink of the Incas).

An Andean priest performs prayers and petitions to the tutelary spirits of the Andes in honor of the couple celebrating their union. Couples actively participate in the ceremony; if close relatives are present, they pray for the couple’s welfare and their offspring. If relatives and godparents are absent, the community will be your relatives and godparents at the Andean wedding.



Experience the magic and beauty of an ancient Inca wedding ceremony with our all-inclusive package. Our team of experts will guide you through every step of the ceremony, from the traditional Andean music and dance to the exchange of vows and blessings. You and your partner will be dressed in authentic Inca attire and adorned with traditional jewelry and accessories. A spiritual leader performs the ceremony and invokes the gods’ blessings and the ancestors’ spirits.

After 2 hours, the Pachamanca will be ready and cooked “at 13:30.” We begin to dig carefully and take out the Pachamanca to serve in the communal hall.

Maras and Moray + Pachamanca Easily the best tour experience I had during my trip to Peru. I highly recommend Kondor Tours as the customer service is top-notch. James responded to my queries almost instantly each time and was very helpful. We were even treated to a can of cusquenia beer each when we visited the office! Our guide Alfredo was absolutely amazing and we were fortunate to have him as our guide for the tour. He is very passionate about his job and shared so much valuable information with us. He has a very candid character and we were very comfortable throughout! I highly recommend requesting for him as your guide (the best we had while touring Peru for 3 weeks). Also, I would say opting in for and additional traditional peruvian pachamanca meal experience must not be missed. The community people were very warm and gracious hosts and it is eye opening to witness the preparation of such a traditional feast normally done only for special occasions like weddings. We even had time for dancing! Two thumbs up for sure!

3-day Choquequirao Trek We took a three-day private group trek to Choquequirao as a family of five. Kondor Path Tours organized a pick-up and drop-off in Urubamba instead of Cusco and did an extra stop at the Saywhite archeological site. Everything went very smoothly during the entire trip, meals and accommodation were as expected or better. The trek itself is quite demanding (particularly in three days), but the nature/ views/ Choquequirao/ dearth of tourists largely compensate. Anyway, we were looking for a physical challenge! Our guide Oron was great. Explaining, motivating, solving potential problems/ demands. We would definitely recommend Kondor Path Tours.
Proffecional company and perfect guide Kondor Path Tours are so proffecional and easy to work with. We went with them on the 2 days short Inca trail to Machu Picchu with our three children. The correspondence was great and everything was perfectly planned in every detail. Our guide Alfredo was so friendly, knowledgeable and pleasant to be around! Thank you Kondor Path Tours - we couldn’t have asked for more!!
Trip to Rainbow Mountain Excellent experience!! Our guide Odon was prompt with pickup time and extremely friendly. The drove to rainbow mountain was smooth. We did the horseback ride up the mountain, and Odon was right there with us. The actual hike up, he provided support, laughter, and information about the region. Amazing experience with an awesome guide. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience.

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!!
