Cusco ruins hike and San Blas tour


Join Boris on this off-the-beaten-track tour through Cusco’s nearby ruins. Unlike most tours, you will begin your experience at the furthest of the four ruins, Tambomachay. After exploring the site, you will continue on by foot to the must-see ruins of Puca Pucara, Kenko, and of course, the monumental fortress of Sacsayhuaman. You will then begin your gentle downhill hike through the countryside into Cusco. Once in Cusco, make sure to visit San Blas’s artisan quarter with its steeped cobblestone alleys and spectacular views of the city. All your walking will be rewarded with a visit to Limbus Restobar. Enjoy one of their delicious craft beers and snacks (we recommend their Tequeños -fried cheese sticks with guacamole) as you take in the stunning view over Cusco’s rooftops!

Walking time:
Tambomachay - Puka Pukara: about 5 minutes
Puka Pukara - Kenko: about 1 hour
Kenko - Sacsayhuaman: about 30 minutes
Sacsayhuaman - Cusco (San Blas): about 30 minutes
