Frequently asked questions

If you’ve ever attempted heels on cobblestone, you’ll know it’s a bad idea. Leave the stilettos at home and opt for comfortable walking shoes to explore the ancient streets. When it comes to clothing, opt for layers so you can easily adjust to the fluctuating temperatures, as Cusco's high altitude can bring chilly evenings and sunny days. Don't forget a camera to capture the breath-taking vistas of Sacred Valley and the iconic Machu Picchu.

Most visitors flock to Cucso for one thing – the ruins of Machu Picchu, an architectural marvel hidden in the misty mountains. But that’s just the beginning! Keep the hiking boots on a little longer and explore the Sacred Valley, where you can wander through picturesque towns like Ollantaytambo and Pisac and immerse yourself in vibrant markets filled with local handicrafts and delicious food. Cusco’s historic center is well worth your time, with its charming cobblestone streets, colonial architecture and fascinating museums. For a unique cultural experience, visit the traditional villages of Chinchero and Maras, where you can learn about ancient weaving techniques and salt mining. Last, but certainly not least, take a hike to the colourful Rainbow Mountain and witness its breath-taking natural beauty.
