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.
