Luxury travel to Cusco

Capital of the Andes, a Colourful Mix of the Colonial and Incan

Capital of the Incan Empire from the early 14th century until its Spanish conquest, Cusco is a beautiful city with a magical feel. Gateway city to the infamous Machu Picchu, the city is situated in a valley of the Andes Mountains with not only historical Incan ruins, but Spanish architecture and wealth. A luxury trip to Cusco is not to be missed on any Peru tour.

Our guides will unlock the experience of Cusco for you, not only explaining the history, but also the hidden secrets of today’s city, from interesting restaurants to local artisans’ workshops.

One cannot visit the Machu Picchu ruins without also visiting all the history and culture that this city has to offer making it the archeological capital of the Americas. Native Incans still inhabit the area speaking their Quechua language and thriving primarily off of agriculture. The cobblestone streets, adobe houses, and open markets add to Cusco’s unique charm.
