Itinerary

As Cusco is at a high altitude, (11,151 ft / 3399 metres above sea level) we do suggest to spend the rest of the day relaxing. We would also recommend arriving in Cusco in the morning. So that you can acclimatize to the altitude for the rest of the day or come a day before you start this Cusco Vacation Package tour with us.

  • Accommodation: Hotel (1 night)
  • Meals Included: There are no meals included on this day

Day 2Cusco City Tour
