Get to know Cusco on foot! This walking tour (downhill only) offers a great introduction of the Inca capital. With a local, English speaking guide you will first discover two of the most impressive ruins situated above the city: Qenqo and Sacsayhuaman (the latter a.k.a. “Sexy Woman”). You will be amazed by the views. Afterwards you descend into the bohemian neighborhood of San Blas full with restaurants and lovely shops, where you will enjoy a break at the art museum & café Xapiri. Then it is time to visit the famous Qoricancha (Sun Temple), it’s incredible to see how the Incas built this city.

Learn some basic words in Quechua, try them out on the street and ask anything you want to know about Cusco. If you like, share lunch with your guide too!

Why is this experience RESPONSible?

When many others jump onto a shared bus excursion in the afternoon, you enjoy a more tranquil morning visiting the highlights of the city. It’s a great way to explore Cusco.

Our tour on foot has less impact on the environment and is led by a local guide. The café we visit is a social project worth supporting.

The RESPONS Team

When RESPONS opened offices in Cusco in 2012, we soon found out that the standard city tours weren’t going to work out for our customers. All the agencies followed the same timetable, causing huge lines and frustrations in every place they’d arrive. And all is done with transportation, causing traffic jams and making you spend more time in a car than actually getting to know the city. Many times the tours would end after sunset, visiting the last ruins in the dark. 

So, we quickly developed a City Tour of our own; changing the order of visiting the places and only taking travelers up to the highest attraction. Our travelers tend to be moderately to very active, so a bit of walking is never a problem. It’s all downhill, but there are some uneven paths so good shoes are advised. And walking down from the impressive site of Sacsayhuaman into the city just opens up a whole new perspective to actually experience the city as you should with a city tour: feeling the history, seeing the daily life, learning also about lesser known stories in streets beyond the busy tourist center. 

Ever since, our Walking Tour has been a great success amongst our travelers and we are proud to open it up to all of you now!

¡Hasta pronto!
