Best Free Tours in Cusco

Located 11,154ft (3,400m) above sea level in the Peruvian Andes, and with layers upon layers of history (literally), Cusco is about as captivating as it gets. Join one of the Free Tours in Cusco and discover why it is known as the “Archaeological Capital of the Americas”. What draws many visitors to Cusco is that it essentially serves as a gateway to the Sacred Valley and the Andean countryside which is littered with tiny villages and ruins linked by a trail leading to Machu Picchu. With so many tours in, around and from Cusco, it’s easy to see why so many companies charge an arm and a leg for them. But if you’re looking around for a tour around Cusco itself there are a few Free Walking Tours in Cusco that will help shed light on one of the most fascinating cities on the planet. Join the Essential Cusco City Tour and discover the best highlights with a guide!

Highlights of Free Tour in Cusco

Join a Cusco Free Walking Tour and be taken on a journey through the ancient Inca capital. Starting in the historical center of Cusco in the Plaza de Armas, the heart of the city, in the plaza you will see a plethora of colonial architecture that reflects the time of the Spanish conquistadors. You will come across notable buildings such as the house of Inca Garcilaso de la Vega considered one of the most influential Peruvian chroniclers of the colonial period. Another highlight is the legacy of the Inca Pachacutec, who transformed the Kingdom of Cusco into the Inca Empire. Stop and marvel at the Coricancha, the Golden Temple, the former centerpiece of the Inca Empire. Once the conquistadors took Cusco, they demolished much of the temple and built a church, Santo Domingo. What remains of the temple is an important link to the Inca past.

Things to Do in Cusco

Although Cusco is often seen as a quick stop on the way to Machu Picchu, the former Incan capital is a worthwhile destination in its own right. Cusco features a perfect combination of fantastically preserved colonial architecture, mestizo culture, and pre-Columbian history. It’s easy to see why Cusco is often referred to as one of the “undisputed highlights” of South America. After taking in the sights of the historic center, head to the neighborhood of San Blas. Stroll through the cobblestoned streets and soak up its relaxed vibe. It’s here that you will find some of the best restaurants and cafes in the city. San Pedro market is a must-visit. It is truly a sight to behold, filled with every type of food and an incredible array of juices! Head out of the city to Sacsayhuaman, an ancient Inca site that was the scene of a bloody battle between the Incas and conquistadors.
