    This historical site is worth seeing. It's a large site with tons of greenery and zero shade so make sure to wear an excellent sun hat and sunscreen.

    I am extremely grateful to Terra Quechua Peru and its team for making this dream trip an unforgettable one. I was in a group of 6 and we had a great time visiting one of the picturesque lagoons on the outskirts of Cusco.
    the view of this turquoise lagoon was simply amazing. my guide was exceptionally good. Extremely friendly and knowledgeable with a great sense of humor and friendliness. I applaud Terra Quechua for making this trip an unforgettable experience.

    We did the 5-day Inca Trail trekking as a couple. We had a group from all over the world which was a bonus on the hike. Terra Quechua Peru has everything well organized, from the food, the places to rest, the itinerary, everything well thought out so that the traveler can complete himself, which is a beautiful challenge.
    Our guide Marcus gave us a once in a lifetime experience. His knowledge of the Inca Trail and Peru was second to none. The 5 day trek was quite a challenge but Marcus made sure we were taken care of and made all the accommodations when needed.
    Then the team of porters cheered us on after each day of hiking. As Donato the cook prepared the most incredible Peruvian dishes propelling us through the most challenging treks, I felt a real accomplishment completing the 5 days. I highly recommend this hike, it truly has been a hike of a lifetime.

    It is a square with arcades that is the true center of the city where all the important events take place, parades, demonstrations, parties... In this square is the Cathedral, the Cabildo and in the center there is a beautiful fountain

    Very well organized tour by Bioandean Expeditions with very friendly guide and driver. Pick up very early at 4 a.m. so you can get to the top of rainbow mountain long before you see the big crowd coming. the tour includes pick up from your hostel, breakfast and lunch.
    The place is extremely beautiful, I was able to see the colors and I had the best guide who encouraged me to reach the top. My friend and I had the best adventure, the food was excellent, there were many options and the transportation was super clean. A special thanks to Jose for his knowledge and information about the place.

    Easily reached from the center of Cusco by walking. the artisans market in the Plaza San Blas is less crowded than the central market and some of those who displayed their wares had stores near by.

    The Qoricancha, was also the most important temple of the entire Inca Empire, Qoricancha literally means "place of gold or cabinet of Gold". Which is dedicated to the god Viracocha who was mainly the creator of the sun, the land of stars and the universe,

    I loved this tour, I can say that it is one of my best travel experiences and that it did not seem as commercial a tour as others in Peru. The Bioandean Expeditions agency is very good, they gave us a great service, they came to look for us quite punctually between 3:00 am and 3:30 am, that allowed us to be one of the first groups to climb the mountain, breakfast and lunch were delicious and the price of everything is worth it.
    The way to this place is full of incredible views, I did the "short" way, an hour there and an hour and a half back, walking next to a mountain that shone with its different colors and also next to a beautiful snowy I recommend very comfortable clothes, shoes with grip, bring water, something to eat (cereal bar and nuts). On the way up it doesn't feel that cold but at the top it gets really cold and the wind is strong so I suggest wearing a hat and gloves and a good jacket for those who think they need them, the mountain is absolutely beautiful!

    We stopped in as part of a tour of multiple Inca ruins around Cusco. This is a sanctuary for Llamas, Alpacas, and vicunas, and the like. The animals we saw appeared well cared for. attached to the sanctuary is a cooperative where the fur is processed into yarn, sweaters, woven goods, and art. They will teach you about the differences in the wool and how to spot imitations. They do also sell all the products they display.

    This museum is quite interesting, with well organized displays of pre-inca artifacts, good bilingual explanations, and a variety of cultures represented. We visited a few other museums in town and found that this was the highest quality one.
