El recorrido a pie por Cusco con Nilo fue excelente. Estaba muy bien informado sobre la historia Inca, así como sobre la historia Pre-Inca y la historia Colonial. La caminata duró casi 2 horas y fue muy agradable, con muchas paradas para tomar fotografías.

Der Regen störte nicht Mit unserem Tourguide Nilo hatten wir eine tolle Tour. Zuerst regnete es, aber wir machten die Tour trotzdem und fanden überall einen Platz zum Unterstellen. Niko machte die Tour auf Spanisch und Englisch. Durch seine Kenntnisse als Archäologe haben wir viel über die Inka-Kultur erfahren.

Sehr informativ Die Tour war sehr interessant und informativ. Der Guide Eric hat einen tollen Job gemacht. Am Ende verkosteten wir einen Maracuyá Sour. Wir fühlten uns am Ende etwas bedrängt was das Trinkgeld angeht.. Wir gaben als Paar und er fragte dann meine Partnerin nochmals nach ihrem Tip.

Frequently Asked Questions about the Free Walking Tour in Cusco:

 

How far in advance should I arrive to start the Free Tour in Cusco?

Participants should arrive 10 to 20 minutes before the start of the tour at the meeting point (water fountain in the main square of Cusco ) in order to allow for time to divide into groups according to language, itinerary, etc.

Are the tours offered by the Free Walking Tour Cusco very difficult?

Our free walking tours in Cusco are suitable for all audiences and fitness levels; we do not perform strenuous and/or complicated walks; please note that a portion of the tour does involve walking uphill and breaks are encouraged along the way!

Do I need to have an entrance ticket for Free Tours in Cusco ?

It is not necessary to purchase any entrance ticket because our free tours are conducted outside of each point of interest. Participants can return to visit any point of interest after the tour, and are subject to the fees/ticketing requirements of the site. On the free tour, the guides will give you in-depth information, and can provide discounts on admission to a number of tourist attractions.

How much should I pay for the Free Walking Tour Cusco?

All our free walking tours in Cusco are contribution-based. If the tour is to your liking, and fulfilled your expectations, we deeply appreciate your contribution (tip) in order to motivate us to continue with this activity that is always undergoing constant improvement.

Is there anything extra to pay?

NO, our free walking tours in Cusco are a true experience of the word FREE, which means that no extra payment will be required on our tour. However, please take into consideration that our guides rely on your generous contribution (tip), as long as the tour is to your liking and meets your expectations. At the end of the tour we will close with a free drink for each participant.

How long does the Free Walking Tour in Cusco last?

Our free tours last approximately 2 hours, but it is necessary to confirm with the guide before starting the tour to know exactly the duration of the tour and the itinerary.

Can the walking tour be done by seniors and/or children?

All of our free tours in Cusco are suitable for all fitness levels and age groups. Please take into account that Cusco is a city that is located more than 3300 meters above sea level, which is why time to adapt to the altitude is important beforehand if you are not accostomed to the elevation.

What kind of coat and/or clothing should I bring for the Free Walking Tour?

Each of our free tours are different and start at different times. Therefore, we recommend bringing a coat for the afternoon walking tour because the temperature drops quite drastically when the sun goes down. Cusco is a city that is more than 3300 meters high and if there is rain, (September-March) it will always be quite cold. This is why it is necessary to bring warm clothes and rain ponchos during those months regardless of the time of the walking tour. It is also essential to bring sunscreen (sunblock) because the exposure to radiation in the Andes is very high. We also recommend bringing sunglasses for eye protection.
