You will be taken to Casa Andina Premium Cusco, where your guaranteed accessible room will be waiting for you. This day will also help you to get acclimatized to the altitude.

Afternoon: After settling in, you'll prepare for a private half-day guided tour of Cusco, a city known for its mixture of Inca and Spanish cultures. You'll discover the city's streets, churches, and archeological treasures, including the famous Stone of Twelve Angles on Hatun Rumilloc Street, the Plaza de Armas (main square), and the Temple of Qoricancha. At the end of your tour, you'll return to your hotel by accessible van or wheeling/walking; you will have dinner and spend the night there.

Please note that since Cusco is a colonial city, it can be hard to navigate for wheelchair users, the ground is made out of cobblestone, and the curbs are not ramped. This is why you'll have 2 assistants available to help, besides your guide. There will be an accessible toilet available at the Incanto restaurant near the Plaza de Armas.

On the way you will see more scenic spots in the Sacred Valley. First, visit the ancient salt ponds near the village of Maras, where salty springs emerge from the hillside and the Incas built terraces to capture the flows and harvest salt.

Continue the excursion to Moray, where huge circular agricultural terraces were built by the Incas on limestone sinks served to plant various crops. It is said to have a cosmological significance, however, the Incas used the terraces as an agricultural laboratory to determine the optimum conditions for each species
in varying altitudes.

Afterwards, enjoy lunch in a local restaurant in the small town of Yucay. Then, return to your hotel to relax at the hotel’s facilities.
