Get to know Peru through its flavors on this Cusco tour - the Pisco Sour! From market, to mixing, to the best part - consumption! - we couldn’t teach you any more about this legendary drink on this tour.
What to Expect
Become a pisco pro on this Cusco tour that will sharpen up your cocktail mixing skills, and help you to get to know local Peru culture at the same time. Because let’s face it, there are few better ways to get to know a nation’s culture than through its boozy creations!
Meet your friendly local guide at Plaza de Armas, the main square of Cusco and a place that has been the heart of the city since the time of the Incas. You’ll get to explore the square a bit — take in the sites of the Cathedral and the Church of La Compañía, as well as all the outstanding buildings that make this plaza one of the most beautiful ones in the world — before officially beginning your Cusco tour. From there, you’ll wander along ancient streets to admire the dramatic Inca Walls, constructed of mammoth granite blocks, side-by-side with colonial buildings. It’s here that you’ll also get to see a famed Inca masterpiece, the 12-angle stone.
Your Cusco tour will then lead you on a stroll through a beautiful small plaza, San Blas, located in Cusco’s bohemian, artistic neighbourhood. It’s here where you can find several artisanal shops, a handicrafts market, and the best views of the city as night falls.
Then it’s back to the order of the day: pisco! As you wander through the city, your local guide will tell you all about the traditional pisco sour and its place in Peruvian history. We’ll stop off at a local bar so that you can taste a few different flavors of pisco, and hear all about the distillation process and how this sour drink is made.
Finally, it’s your time to shine! Get your mixologist hat on and try your hand at making your very own pisco sour, using all the knowledge that you’ve picked up along the way on this Cusco city tour. And the best part? You get to drink it afterwards — salud!
