Itinerary

  • On June 24 at 7:45 am we will meet at the Valeriana café (in front of the Coricancha) to go to the Coricancha temple where the first performance of Inti Raymi takes place.
  • This staging is open to everyone, including local residents, so you will necessarily have to appreciate the show standing up, like everyone else. However, you can optionally add an entrance ticket to the tour to appreciate this show from a seat (subject to availability).
  • Then we will go on foot to the Plaza de Armas of Cusco, where the second staging of Inti Raymi will take place. This show is also open to the public, so it will be necessary to find a suitable location.
  • After the ceremony in the Plaza de Armas, the tourist transport will take us to the famous Inca fortress of Sacsayhuaman. There, each visitor will receive a box lunch to recharge their batteries. This staging is suitable only for people who purchased their tickets. As the tourist package includes entrance tickets, each visitor will enjoy the show in their respective seat with total comfort.
  • Optionally, the tourist can add a preferential location in the seats in the orange (recommended) or red zones.
  • The staging in Sacsayhuaman is the most spectacular of the Inti Raymi. It lasts approximately 2 hours (it ends around 3:30 pm).
  • Finally, in the afternoon the tourist transport will return the tourists to the center of the city of Cusco where the tour ends.
