Day 1: Full day at the Inti Raymi Festival
Cusco celebrates the Inti Raymi with occasion of the winter solstice -the solar new year - for a culture whose main cult object was the god Inti (sun). In time of the Incas it was a religious ceremony, now it is a theatrical representation. However this experience generates a feeling of identity in the city that evokes values and memories that are still in our minds today. It also brings to mind, a time that lives in the heart of the people of Cusco. This pageant is expressed in the original Quechua language.
You will be picked up at your hotel. The celebration starts about 08:00 a.m. at the Temple of the Sun (Koricancha), then continues to the Plaza de Armas (about 10:30 a.m.), and finally at Sacsayhuaman, around 13:00 p.m., we experience the grand pageant from VIP seats.
We will provide the transportation, an English-speaking guide, entrance fees and VIP seating, and a box lunch. Late afternoon return to your hotel. Duration: 7 hours
