Know More about this tour

Meet your knowledgeable guide at Plaza de Armas in the heart of Cusco, and begin your small-group tour with a stroll through the historic square dating back to the time of the Incas. Admire the Renaissance-style Cathedral from the 17th century, and then gaze at the baroque faade of Jesuit church La Compania, originally constructed in the 16th century. Learn about both edifices built on sites that were formerly Incan palaces.

Follow your guide out of the square onto streets lined with remnants of Incan walls, gigantic blocks of granite fitting together perfectly without mortar, which stand side by side with colonial architecture. At the palace of Inca Roca, youll see fitted into the wall a 12-angled stone, a unique example of Incan masonry.

Continue up a hill to San Blas, a charming square with bohemian flair, and walk past artist studios, handicraft markets and glittering city views.

After the sightseeing, your pisco sour lesson begins. As you head to a bar specializing in this drink, listen as your guide tells your group about the beverage and its place in Peruvian history. At the bar, try a few different flavors of pisco, learn all about the distillation process and how this delicious cocktail is made. Finally, put on your mixologist hat and try your hand at making your very own pisco sour.

Sip your creation at the bar in central Cusco, where your tour concludes.

  • It was informative and entertaining!!
    Had a great time!

  • I enjoyed the tour but found the instructions for meeting the guide ambiguous and when the guide was late, I was uncertain whether I was waiting in the correct location. The information on the tour was very interesting and the Pisco Sour lesson was fun. I would definitely recommend.

  • I did a solo trip to Cusco, and on the first day in the city I knew I wanted to do something that wasn't too exhausting, considering the early morning flight arrival and needing to get acclimated to the altitude. After a failed attempt at the free walking tour during the day, I decided to opt for this. By far a better decision. Spend the day exploring the city and sites on your own. Having a night tour was an excellent way to see a different side of the city with a local.

    The other that were supposed to be part of the tour apparently were sick from the altitude bring Diamox, so I benefited from a solo tour with Lily. She was extremely informative and fun to learn from. We we walked around the normal sites, but also explored several of the side streets, just off the main square. Ending at the Museo Del Pisco bar I'm sure they differ was great and convenient as it was across from my hotel. The staff/bartenders were uber friendly and taught how to make just the right Pisco Sour...by far the best experience of the tour.

    This is a great tour to do in the evening before dinner, especially if it's your first night in Cusco. Helps to give you a tour of the city while not being difficult.

  • We had arrived in Cusco that day and were not sure we would be up to the tour, however, being prepared for acclimation to the altitude helped. We loved every minute of this tour with Lily, she was informative, took our recent arrival into account, which was particularly helpful when we were climbing San Blas for the first time, and kept us entertained. We saw a wedding in the little church at the top of the hill great timing, and the Pisco lessons behind the bar at the Pisco Museum, were lots of fun, the bartenders very entertaining and really helpful, I even got a Mother's Day present. Great night out.

  • We really enjoyed this walking tour. With just us and another couple we had a great opportunity to learn more about Cusco. The walking tour didn't tell us anything we didn't hear about four more times during our stay but it was a great way to orient to the city. There are lots of free walking tours in the city that might be worth looking into. The highlight of this tour was the pisco lesson. We really enjoyed learning to make our own Pisco Sours, getting behind the bar and actually mixing it, and then drinking :

    This was a great tour overall and we're happy we did it.

  • Had SO MUCH FUN on this tour! Not only was our guide Lily really nice and informative, but she made the tour fun. There were just four of us, which made it even better. The walking tour is great, but let's be honest, the pisco sour lesson was the best part! We LOVED the bar where the lesson was held, and the staff and bartenders were super friendly and fun. They all spoke great English. All four of us were able to fully create our own pisco sours, and then we stayed at the bar listening to music and enjoying more food and beverages. I highly recommend this tour for any night of the week - we had a blast.

  • I visited Cusco for a trek to Machu Picchu with several family members and friends. The two days before our trek, while we were acclimating, we decided to get a short guided tour of the city. The night walking tour was perfect. Liliana, our guide, was knowledgeable and entertaining! The Pisco Sour lesson was great fun and everyone gets involved! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. It is quick and packed with information and fun!

  • This night was so fun. The walking tour was full of information that we did not know about Cusco. The tour guide was excellent. When we went to the bar all of the employees behind the bar were so welcoming. Each of us could make a Pisco Sour of our choice mine was chocolate. We had so much fun that we stayed two additional hours and had another drink and appetizers.

  • Pisco and a tour of cusco. Yes please. Did this tour my first night in cusco which helped familiarize the area. Guide was very nice and knowledgable.

  • Very fun. It was more the lesson than a tour, but it was fun to do.
