For a great introduction to Peruvian culture, join a small-group walking tour of Cusco's vibrant markets and impressive Inca ruins. Start at the vibrant San Pedro market and buy some local snacks as you explore the street markets of Cusco. Then head out of town to explore the mysterious Temple of the Moon, an Incan ceremonial temple near Machu Picchu.
Meet your guide at Plaza Regocijo in the morning, and then head over to San Pedro Market, where you'll learn about the market's history as you explore rows of local produce, colorful fabrics, flower vendors and shaman stalls. The people of Cusco will not shy away, so be ready for some welcoming, yet entertaining local interaction.

From the bustling San Pedro market, walk together with your guide to Plaza de Armas, where you'll depart by public transport to explore the Temple of the Moon, located on Huayna Picchu near Machu Picchu.

This impressive and mysterious temple is a hill with two caves inside of it. The caves contain altars, and cracks in the walls let in sunlight or, more significantly, moonlight that strikes the altars on certain nights. There are also mystery carvings in the caves and atop the hill — see if you can figure out the story they tell.

When the times comes, enjoy a leisurely stroll (approx. 30 minutes) back to Cusco via Inca streets. Along the way, listen to your guide talk about legends of the Inca Empire, then meander through the bohemian area of San Blas. Your tour concludes at the Santo Domingo Convent and Qorikancha temple, where an optional visit is possible.

My husband and I took this tour with our guide LeLeana while our 22 year old twin sons took the Cusco City Bike Tour. There is a lot of walking. We got confused about where we were supposed to meet our guide and were 20 min. late to the meeting spot. There was no one there. We saw a guide from another tour agency and she called our tour company--Urban Adventures. In 10 min. Leleana, who had been our tour guide on the Cusco Night Walking Tour showed up. It was a private tour. Just us and Lele. So much fun! We went to the San Pedro Market and bought an Inca Cola, tamale and fruit to eat later. We took a taxi way above Cusco to Sacsayhuaman ruins and walked and learned with Lele. We went to La Vicunita Factoria where we were able to choose from the most beautiful baby alpaca knit goods imaginable. We had our picnic in the grass overlooking Cusco and learned so so much about the history and like of the Inca kings. Lele did a fantastic job! Highly recommend!
