Cusco Walking Tour, Cooking Classes and Lunch

In Search of the Incas
This walking tour will take us back in time on a trip through Inca history. With the help of infographics, audio, and photographs, we will learn about Cusco’s original urban layout, with its buildings, streets, and squares. We will then enjoy an entertaining cooking class, in which an expert chef will teach us how to make ceviche, followed by a delicious lunch a la carte.

Plaza Haukaypata
The tour starts at Cusco’s Plaza de Armas, the ancient main square of the Incas, who called it Plaza Haukaypata. This was the starting point where the four main roads that connected every corner of the Empire originated.

Plaza Kusipata
Next, we will head to Plaza Regocijo, formerly known as Plaza Kusipata, where we will learn about the Incas’ day-to-day lives, their customs, activities, and the festivities that were held here.

Plaza San Francisco
Our tour will then take us to Plaza San Francisco. Along the way, we will make a brief stop at the Casa de Garcilaso to pay tribute to Garcilaso de la Vega, also known as “El Inca,” a 16th century nobleman and writer whose literary works attest to the culture and traditions of the Incas and other peoples of ancient Peru. At the Plaza San Francisco, we will see the church, the arch, and the Colegio Nacional de Ciencias, one of the oldest and most iconic schools in Cusco.
