Stop At: Tipon, Cusco, Cusco Region

From your hotel inside the historical center of Cusco you will get picked up and the adventure to the Southern Valley of Cusco begins. During this trip you will experience the archaeological site of Tipon. This impressive agricultural complex is located at the base of the Pachatusan Mountain, which is an important protective Apu, or mountain spirit, in the Andean religin. It contains terraces that are still preserved, as well as walls of finely carved stones, but the most incredible feature of this site is its irrigation system.
You will experience the archaeological site of Piquillacta which was once a significant turban center during the time of the Pre-Incan Wari Empire, this archeological site contains thousands of constructions, including plazas, colcas (silos used to store food), yards, homes, temples, and long, wides streets. Some buildings were as many as four stories high.
At last we will visit the sistine chapel of the Americas, Andahuaylillas which is located in a typical Andean village that dates from colonial times, and is notable for its colonial architecture, the most notable of which is its colonial Catholic chapel. The Chapel, known as the Sistine Chapel of the Americas, contains breathtaking decoration and murals from the 17th and 18th centuries.

    Tour guide seem not interested in his job. Refused to provide sufficient information in English, although mentioned in the tour booking. Went 1 hour over time. The sites visited were not bad though, but overall rating could have improved to "worth doing" or higher had tour guide shown more interest.
