I’ve been here before and love the old historic district. It makes up a large portion of the city. Cusco is an ancient place of residence, where excavations have found signs of inhabitants living here as far back as 3,000 years ago, and over 2,200...More
Cusco was exceeded my expectations. It is a very beautiful old city with all the buildings in the large central area intact. You can see Spanish colonial buildings with Inca bases in some cases. The main square and other small squares are delightful and the...More

The town is a combination of Incan and Spanish colonial architecture, which is both interesting and beautiful to see.

Hi! We landed in Cusco and immediately left to go to the Sacred Valley. This helps to acclimate to the high altitude. We were there for two days and then went to Macchu Picchu for two days. We then returned to Cusco for two more days. We made our arrangements through Avanti Tours in the US which then subcontracted with Condor Tours. They had EXCELLENT guides and services. We loved our hotels--the Casa Andina in the Sacred Valley was very nice and even had a planetarium on the grounds! Then we also enjoyed the Inkaterra Pueblo Hotel in Aguas Caliente--the town at the base of Macchu Picchu. In Cusco we stayed at another nice hotel, the Aranwa Boutique Hotel. Condor arranged for our train to Macchu Picchu, our various tours and guides and travel within Peru. We also got our entrance passes and hiking passes for Huyana Picchu in this same manner. Have a great time! It is a trip of a lifetime!
