Overview

Explore the ancient Incan streets of Cusco and then make the perfect pisco sour like a true Peruvian local. Begin your 2.5-hour night walking tour in Plaza de armas and discover a stunning array of Incan and colonial architecture. Delight in the bohemian-spirited San blas square before heading to a bar in central Cusco where youll learn all you need to know about Perus legendary drink. Choose your favorite pisco flavor, mix your own drink and then enjoy your creation. Receive personalized attention on this small-group tour limited to 12 people.

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.

    Took this tour the night I arrived. It was a good overall tour of the main areas of Cusco and an opportunity to talk to a local resident about where to eat and go while in Cusco. Also learned about some unique cultural art specific to Cusco. Going to the Pisco Museum and learning to make a Pisco Sour was fun. It was also an opportunity to learn about the different types of Pisco and how they are made.

    My boyfriend and I loved this tour! Lilyana was our tour guide and it ended up being just us until the very end when the other three people showed up at our last stop. I highly recommend this tour because Cusco can seem a bit dodgy and with a local it made me feel very at ease. Lilyana was super sweet and offered me a poncho when it stared raining. She also recommended a restaurant to eat at the next night which we went to and it was delicious. My favorite part of the tour was the last stop at the pisco making bar where we got to get behind the bar and make our drinks. We even stayed for the band that was setting up. 5 stars!

    This was the first activity I did when I landed in Cusco and I'm so glad I did. Our guide was very knowledgeable, telling us about the history of the town, its architecture, the ancient people and the now locals. Oh, and making the Pisco was so much fun. The bartenders were very friendly. Quality ingredients and liquor. I highly recommend this tour, especially on your first couple nights. It's a great way to get to know the city.
    I really wish I could remember my guides' name, Lilliana maybe.

    Getting behind the bar and making your own pisco sour was one of the highlights of our trip! Went back to this bar 2 more times during our trip. Fantastic drinks and atmosphere

    Really good tour. The only time wasted was to find other tour members in the huge Cusco square with a signboard. Wasn't ideal but well the tour overall was impressive! Highly recommend it if you're into Pisco - who isn't?! :-

    A very pleasant evening walk with an enthusiastic guide. Cusco is a beautiful city at night. We enjoyed the Pisco Sour lesson too. It was very fun!

    We walked from the Cathedral area up towards San Blas and explored the neighborhood shops and bars and ended with the pisco sour lesson in a private room at Museo del Pisco. Definitely fun for either a group or solo travel and you get to make your own pisco sour.

    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.
