Cusco Urban Adventures
Day tours, with a local
Cusco Urban Adventures offers a discovery of the hidden secrets and incredible ancient history on locally guided Cusco day tours. Here the vibe is that you’re never far from an undiscovered archeological site, or from the next big artist to make it on the world stage. Experience being surrounded in every direction with the remaining influence of the Incan legacy, the civilizations that lived before them, and the colonial conquistadors that tried to claim it all as their own. As you tour the Sacred Valley or wander the streets of Cusco on our experiential Cusco sightseeing tours, you know you are experiencing a living history.
With Cusco Urban Adventures you can spend the day exploring the ruins around Pisac and its colourful market where local farmers and artisans come to sell their wares to locals and tourists alike. The distinctive earthy musk of farm life, the sound of traditional Andean music, the colours of hand-woven textiles will all transport you to a world far away from the one you know on a tour of Cusco.

29 Jul 2012 Our guide was well prepared, safety concious and well informed about the area.
20 Jun 2012 It turned out to be a private tour - it was perfectly organised - the few hours spent exploring the ruins at Machu Picchu would live with me for the rest of my life. Having a local guide does help when it comes to appreciating the customs and culture.
Welcome to Cusco – the historic capital of the Incan Empire, the gateway to Machu Picchu, and a lovely UNESCO World Heritage site. As a part of the Urban Adventures network, we are excited to share it with you through our unique Cusco and Sacred Valley tours. Whether this is visiting a local community or learning how to make a regional dish, our goal is to help make the world feel a little smaller by inspiring our travellers to experience a culture and its people in the most intrepid way possible – through local knowledge and local experience.
